If you haven't figured it out by now, blue is my favorite color. There's something about it that seems to go with everything and as it's a shade away from black, I think it provides that same classic effect that black does. I don't discriminate against any shade of blue and when it's an option for something, I always gravitate toward it. It's been that way for as long as I can remember, and recently I've made a conscious effort to try other colors. You can see here that my effort failed.
When I saw this pretty little floral BLUE dress I knew it was the perfect option for all of my spring events. From weddings, to showers, to Easter - the one hits all the marks. I styled it with leather open toe booties to add a little edge but will definitely wear it with heels or wedges for other occasions. I can see pairing this with my favorite light blue heeled sandals for an adorable Easter look.
I host of big to-do at Easter. We head to early an early church service and then set up for a bug brunch with the entire family. After brunch, the kids head outside for an epic egg hunt! Shout out to my husband who hides the eggs - that's a man's job! I fill the eggs with candy and coins and each child has a specific color egg they're looking for. I do it that way to make it fair . The kids age ranges are from 1 to 4 and I don't want the 4 years old's stealing everything from the 1 year old's. One egg in each set has a number written on a piece of paper that matches up with a larger gift. Last year I did an entire Easter basket for each kid (there are 5) and it got to be quite expensive so this year I think I'm just going to do one larger gift per child. I also hide a golden egg (oooohhhhhhh ahhhhhhhh) and whoever finds this egg gets a special prize!!
What are your family Easter traditions? I'd love to hear them!
