Happy day after Easter! I spent the weekend with my husband and his family - catching up, dyeing eggs, going to church, and eating too many sweets.
Growing up, my mom and then parents always got my two sisters and I new dresses (and sometimes hats) for Easter, even when times were tough. It's a tradition I have kept even as an adult, because, well, who doesn't like getting new dresses?
But seriously, there was something very special about wearing a fresh, new, pretty dress on Easter Sunday. To me, it symbolizes, spring, newness, and most of all hope - which goes hand in hand with what the day and this season means to me in general.
I found this dress on my latest shopping trip. It didn't really appeal to me on the hanger, but I really loved the fit when I tried it on. The combination of the feminine lace and almost sporty seersucker seemed like the perfect combination for me. :)
