One of my favorite parts about springtime is Easter. When I was a little girl, it was a huge holiday. It was a time to go shopping with my nana and papa to find a new dress for church with matching accessories, sometimes even a hat or new handbag. Easter morning at First Baptist Church in Pawhuska was like a mini spring fashion show. To this day, I still love seeing families in their coordinated outfits. It seriously makes my heart explode into heart-shaped confetti pieces. Now that I am a grown up, I can only imagine all of the work behind that one great Easter family photo.
Speaking of Easter pictures, my mom went above and beyond one spring. My nana made the girls matching dresses. We had a photo shoot in Bartlesville in our coordinating/matching outfits. I am not sure if it was the same year or not--but there were LIVE bunnies involved. It was all fun and games until we broke out in hives from the little furry creatures. Shout-out to all of the moms and dads making silly memories with your kids and having hilarious photos to laugh at later down the road!
Before Easter, I had a chance to work with one of my favorite brands, thredUP. I was on a mission, find the perfect Easter dress for under $45! When shopping on thredUP, I find it easier to narrow it down by the brands I like. I wanted to find a little spring number by J.Crew. To my surprise, this beautiful dress was brand new with tags still attached! The color of the dress was a little out of my color wheelhouse, but I took a chance on it.
I wore this to church on Easter and received so many compliments on it! It also was the perfect attire to our Sunday brunch. My favorite part about this dress is the tiny details of the design. I am also into the length of it. Because of my fuller hips/thighs, I find that dresses get short in a hurry! It's all about finding a style that works for your body type. I would say in the past year I have owned that I am not a size two anymore. I am starting to feel more confident and comfortable in my new body.
A while back I wore a post about thredUP if you are interested in ordering a closet clean out bag or if you want a coupon code. You can find more details, here. If you need help finding a dress for an upcoming event, please send me an Instagram direct message. I would love to help you!
