Easter is always a great time to break out your springiest clothes and get dolled up for your days’ festivities whether there is church involved, maybe an egg hunt, hopefully some ham…this year we have 3 egg hunts on the horizon for Easter Sunday and since my Z has been obsessed with all the plastic “egg-ies” I’ve brought up from storage in the basement, I think she will really enjoy them all!
Back to the springtime outfit though. Last year, I must admit, my Z had the most perfect Easter Sunday outfit, do you remember? This year, since she is in LOVE with her spring jacket, I decided to build her outfit around that – living in New England you never know what you’ll get for Easter weather but I assume a jacket will be necessary. We actually found this dress at GAP Outlet months ago on the same trip as her brown boots and I’ve managed to keep it unworn since then so it can be nice and stain free for Easter. We’ll pair the dress with some white tights and her dressiest shoes. Oh, and a pair of bunny ear hair clips from the Target dollar section – I couldn’t resist!

I thought I’d give you a quick recap of all my Easter craft series, but first some related exciting news! If you read this blog, you know by now that I am a big fan of Martha Stewart – her crafts, her recipes, etc… – I even subscribed to Martha Stewart Living when I was 12 years old!! Anyway, late last week when I saw her Twitter contest for Easter crafts I thought I’d enter and then she actually re-tweeted the photo of my adorable Easter straws, check it out:
It’s a thrilling moment when the queen of crafting (or I’m sure it was her staff, but still) thinks your crafts are good enough to share (and by the way, she wasn’t re-tweeting any other entries). Thanks Martha!
Here’s the recap of my Easter Crafts Series:

To me, Easter Sunday, no matter when it falls on the calendar, is always an excuse to get dolled up in spring-y clothes. This year, even though we’ll be celebrating in about a week and there will (most likely) be snow on the ground, I am still dawning an outfit fit for a spring afternoon. I showed you last week what our Z will be wearing, so now it’s my turn!
