What I Wore: the Easter Edition

So... about Easter....

As many of you know, I spent a whole month trying to make sure I didn't replicate last year's disastrous Easter outfit! And you guys were so encouraging as I tried to figure out if it was just the color that went terribly wrong or if the style needed tweaking as well.

One thing that became clear was that my chosen dress was a perfect color, but it needed to be hemmed. And the cardigan I picked wasn't quite right, either, so I was considering one of the other ones I had.

But then this happened...

I got sick! Really bad allergies that seemed to be trying to morph into something sinusy/can't-really-breathe/use-all-the-tissues/better-lie-down. So I stopped caring whether I got the dress hemmed or not and just hoped I wouldn't be sneezing at church.

Then I got this cold sore under my nose about the size of Texas. Mmmhmm. And that's when I knew that I might have to look like that but I was definitely not going to take a picture of it!

So, Easter went well, the dress wasn't perfect but was far better than last year's (disaster avoided) and here's what it looked like...










So there you have it, the end of my "what will I wear for Easter?" extravaganza!! Have you had any dress-up disasters since last we talked? :)

What did you wear?

And now: The Easter Egg Hunt Extravaganza :) ...

Why am I proud of my son? Because I suggested that he only find a few eggs for himself and then help the younger kids and he did!

I am linking up today with Nina from Momma Go Round for Real Momma, Real Style (if there is one today), to Bon Bon Rose Girls for this week's Monday Mingle and to Not Dead, Yet Style for Visible Monday. On Wednesday, I will link up with Lindsey at The Pleated Poppy for What I Wore Wednesday.

Warm Autumn:“This woman never pretends. She won’t say something just to flatter you unless she believes it to be true. She cries harder than anyone at a funeral. She is fiercely loyal to her family but will not spare them hard work or spoil them with extravagance. She may seem to absorb a lot of demands but when she draws the line at enough, everyone knows it.” ~~Christine Scaman, 12 Blueprints

Deep Autumn:"Sensible and straightforward as all Autumns, but direct in speech, and quick to absorb change with good evidence, they speak honestly and bluntly. What I love most, I believe, is that they are not one bit threatened or defensive about new ideas. The person may demonstrate more of Winter’s reserve, or more of Autumn’s passive and natural way, but there is always an element of fire." ~~Christine Scaman, 12 Blueprints

    1. Thanks, Patti!! Yes, I hate the whole cold sore thing because it takes so long to disappear completely. And it only happens when I get really sick. But I feel much better now, thank goodness!
