Growing up, my mom would take me shopping for an Easter dress every year. I usually went with my trusty Laura Ashley and adored each dress, wearing it as often as possible. My mom and I would head to the King of Prussia mall and scour the stores for the perfect one. One year I actually wore a matching dress to Samantha, the American Girl doll. Dark plaid may not have been my best choice for the season, but I loved that dress so hard. Isn’t it funny how we can tie specific memories and feelings to particular outfits?
It’s not surprise that something about an Easter or Springy dress is just so special to me. It’s a particular seasonal event and time that is so happy to shop for after a long Winter. There is almost always some flowers or lace involved, and definitely a feminine cut. I also rocked some serious Peter Pan collars on mine back in the day, which I totally cannot do anymore, but YES to all of the florals and lace.
I still shop for an Easter or Spring dress every year with just as much excitement as I did when I was a child. The past three years I have gone with something lacy, but I am thinking florals for this Spring. I love having one great dress that I can wear for Easter Sunday, lunches, bridal and baby showers, etc. Sometimes I will splurge and pay more for one, but there are so many gorgeous ones under $100 that I have found this year that I wanted to share with you today!
I personally am thinking there are two or three out of all of these that I could legitimately wear with my bump, but a girl can dream for next year!
Have a fabulous day! -XO
