Ya'll know what I'm going to talk about don't you? The Easter Dress. And oh. mah. gaw. the Easter Bonnet. Ladies. I know I'm walking on sacred ground. Your mama's mama bought you your first frilly pink Easter dress with all the pretty ribbons and the big beautiful bonnet. And thus began the tradition. But you were six. And now. Now? You're not six.
And you don't want to look like the Easter Bunny devoured a giant bag of cotton candy and threw up all over you. That is often the scene at Easter Sunday services and brunches across the country, now isn't it?
Grown women covered in pinks and lilacs and frills and ribbons and tulle. And wearing a big ol' bonnet. I just have to say that unless you are under the age of 10, or are at the Kentucky Derby, or are having tea with the Queen of England...don't wear wear a big ol' Easter Bonnet with a shiny ribbon tied around it.
You can still buy a special dress and get all gussied up to go honor the sacrifice of our Lord at church this Sunday. But let's do it a little bit different this year.
Instead, I went to my favorite resale shop this week and bought this cute outfit. I love how the cropped pants actually hit me where they're supposed to. And would you check out how sweet that lining is on the jacket? Mmmm hmmmm. I love it too.
Since it's still pretty cold here, this will do nicely for my Easter Sunday needs. I'll just pair it with a pretty cami with a little lace edging along the hem and some Sister Big (who really just calls Rachie Roo) approved shoes. This outfit was only $12.95. Can't beat that.
And here is what my little Logan will be wearing-also purchased at the resale shop for only $7.00. Won't he be handsome?
Now get on over to Fussy's for some Frump Fighting tips. And don't forget to scroll down and check out Sassy's latest edition of Fiction Friday.
And you have yourself a fabulous Easter. And if you wear a pink-lace-tulle-big-bowed get-up, I'll still be your friend. Just not this Sunday, mmm'k?
