Happy Resurrection Day! I hope all of your Easter’s are amazing. The tomb is empty and the King is alive! Today my sister and I are doing our Easter OOTD. Every year our grandma takes my sister and I with our mom out to dress shop for Easter and Christmas. This semi-annual shopping excursion is an event I look forward too. It’s a day where I get to enjoy hanging out with my grandma, mom, and sister and get new clothes.This year I went for an olive green maxi dress and Anaya went for a pink lacey one.
This dress for my super tall sister is probably her last kids dress. It was the only one in the girls’ section that fit. Yet, it wasn’t just the fact that it fit, but the simplicity of this dress that drew her to it. She wore some of her favorite pearl earrings and a pearl necklace to bring out the pearls in the belt, and summery sandals.
When I saw my dress, I hoped so much that it would fit. The lace bodice and olive hue of the dress drew me to it. And once it fit me perfectly I knew it was mine. The style of it reads very Coachella to me also. Gold jewelry completes the look: gold hoops a blush and gold and a purple and gold bracelet. I pulled out the purple and gold in my bracelet with purple/gray and gold nail polish on my nails. And for my hair I did my new signature curly fro.
All in all I think we look pretty fly together. And thanks so much to our grandma for Easter dresses! Happy Easter fam!
