I love when the first holidays of the year arrive. The cold crisp air turns to warm spring afternoons, the colorful flowers start to bloom and the days start staying lighter longer. First, we get to celebrate Valentine’s Day, then Easter and then, of course, the Fourth of July. It just keeps getting better and better; Though, I may be a bit biased since the Fourth of July is my birthday. But, all in all having holidays to look forward to make those not so occasional days of spring showers pass much quicker (especially if you’re one of those lucky ones who get to live in the rainy Pacific Northwest). One of my favorite things about celebrating these holidays is picking out fun outfits for each occasion. For Easter, it’s all about the dresses and for the little ones, it’s all about the frill. For my daughter, Aubrielle, I went with a dress full of color in an electric robins egg blue. It’s so bright and fun and it’s different from the usual girly pink dresses we always tend to gravitate towards. It has layers of tulle as well as a cute flowered design around the waist and of course, we found a matching handbag to go with it (but really, what’s a girl to do without her purse?). We topped off the shoes and accessories with hints of rose gold and a perfectly spring flowered headband in white.
For my outfit, I found the prettiest shift dress in a navy blue. It is just colorful enough with hints of that robins egg blue, pink and white with a floral pattern that is quintessential for those early days of spring. It is also covered in lace and has an appliqué along the hemline. I loved all of the colors in it and how the lace on the sleeves contrasts against the color of my skin. It’s so elegant and feminine and the details are so eye-catching that it’s hard to not fall in love with. I’ll definitely be wearing this dress a lot throughout the next few months! (Goodbye Easter, hello spring!). So, i’d love to know, what are your plans for Easter and what are you wearing?
