Easter Traditions

Every year since I can remember, I have looked forward to getting a new dress for Easter Sunday.  When I was growing up, my mom would always take me shopping for something new, which most likely involved gloves and a bonnet.  And to this day, it’s a tradition that I still adhere to and love (well maybe minus the gloves and the bonnet!).

And this year, when I started looking for a dress, Chic Wish was the first place I started.  Lately, they have become my go-to for pretty dresses, skirts, and oh-so feminine tops.  They offer gorgeous pieces that are fantastic quality without breaking the bank.  So if you are looking for something pretty and unique, be sure to check them out.

Dress: Chic Wish c/o AND it’s under $55!!! (it runs a little small in the arms/shoulders; I am normally a size small, or 4/6, and am wearing a large in this dress-but the quality is FANTASTIC!)

Bracelets: Tiffany and Co., Stella & Dot, JCrew

Sunnies: Prada (obsessed!)

Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs (old), LOVING this

Heels: Banana Republic (SUPER comfy!), also own and love these

And on a more serious note, if you live in the SLC and are looking for a place to attend an Easter service, or if you are just curious about Jesus and a God who is crazy about YOU (no matter what baggage you THINK you might have), then come, just as YOU are, for what is bound to be an amazing experience at Antioch SLC (and if you aren’t in the SLC, that’s ok-there are Antioch Churches all over the country!).  To be 100% real with you guys, the past few months have been proven to be a pretty challenging season in my personal life, and I have found so much grace and solace through Antioch.  It’s truly a special place, and I have a feeling Easter is going to be pretty incredible. The service is at 5pm on Sunday at the Falls Event Center at Trolley Square.  I will be there and would love to see some of your beautiful faces!  So be sure to come and say “hi” if you decide to check it out.

Happy Friday, my sweet friends, and happy Easter weekend!  Love you guys!!!

Pastels

As soon as the temps begin to warm up, and the clocks spring forward, I always start thinking about what I want to wear for Easter.  And today’s outfit would be a great option for an Easter dinner or brunch, or even a more casual church service. Because if anything says Spring in my book, it’s a pretty pale shade of pastel pink, and a light wash denim jacket.DSC_5031 DSC_4946 DSC_4974 DSC_4957 DSC_4964 DSC_4969 DSC_4945 DSC_5014 DSC_4959 DSC_4996 DSC_5021Jacket: JCrew (on sale!)

Pops Of Red

Even though the Holidays have long since come and gone (I mean seriously, how is it MARCH?), I am still absolutely loving a pop of red.  Whether it’s a red dress, a red top, a red pump, or a swipe of red across the lip, red is a color that always has a place in my wardrobe or beauty routine-no matter the season.DSC_4522 DSC_4527DSC_4547 DSC_4509 DSC_4519 DSC_4558 DSC_4514 DSC_4526 DSC_4549 DSC_4583Dress: H&M, same dress different print | Necklace: Macy’s | Hat: Macy’s (under $30!) | Sunnies: Karen Walker (on sale!) | Clutch: Clare V.
