A Beachy Easter

Easter has always been a one of my favorite times of celebration, both for the spiritual significance and the wonderful family memories we have made through the years. My first Easter was a sunrise service which I'm sure I slept through, but nevertheless, it remains a very special day and a favorite holiday as well. Any time you have a tradition, the meaning behind it is mostly because it feels familiar. Something that you look forward to each year because you know that it will be a good time shared by those you love and hold dear. This year, for the first time, my family spent Easter away from home...at the beach. While this was a change (and change can be tough), it proved to be a good change that I know we will always remember. Even if this was just a one-time thing, I will always cherish our memories doing something different, but still being together as a family. Since I was at the beach, we had our Easter service on the pool deck of our hotel and then went and enjoyed a delicious brunch (words cannot describe the food, but I will attempt it in an upcoming post). But anyway, because of our circumstances, there was no need for a traditional Easter outfit. Anyway, if I had been back home celebrating in a more traditional way (i.e. attending church and then a big lunch with the family), I might have put together an outfit much like the one here. Granted, the clutch is Halston and the shoes are Louboutin so it is definitely more of a fantasy outfit (as in fantasy price), but I love the lilac dress with the coral scarf. This color combination is a good one for spring and the gold jewelry keeps it updated. I'm sure the shoes are incredibly uncomfortable, but they are cute as can be and it's my fantasy...so there.

  1. Great shoes! Stopping by from Southern Mommas. Looking forward to checking back.

  2. Super adorable outfit you've pulled together here. Thanks for coming by my place to visit. You mentioned looking around my blog, but you'll fing more at the website than the blog, LOL. All Things Southern keeps me so busy that I don't blog as much as I should. FYI, I totally love this line: "I come from faithful men, devoted women, hard workers and wickedly good cooks." If I were a thief, I'd steal it. :)


Lay it on me y'all!
