Happy belated Easter and Happy Spring! Finally, spring weather is on its way! I hope it stays and lingers here in the big apple for a while because the summers here are just horrendous. Gah! So, how did most of you spend your Eastertime? How is the weather in your part of the world?
Yesterday the Easter bunny (aka me) was feverishly working on getting the house in order which is tough to do because it is in a state of what I call "paint prepping" and setting up to surprise the little ones with their Easter goodies. All this while dressed up for the first time for Easter. Ahhhh it an't easy being a bunny during Eastertime hehe
They went bonkers over their goodies and we did our 3rd annual Easter egg hunt-so much fun! I matched the boys with navy blue polo shirts with jeans and my girl wore a blue gingham dress with a white cardigan. So naturally mama had to find a dress to match with them! And I did just that! I scored this beauty on Etsy. It is a 1950's housewife dress, nothing too fancy because I knew I would be home for all the Easter festivities. It has a zipper in the front and a side pocket which I LOVE! It also comes with a matching belt which I also love. I now look for dresses with belts, saves me the time to search for belts online, which is not always an easy task.
I accessorized with a white beaded necklace, white beaded bracelet, white screw back earrings, and a brooch with three small dogs on it. You may have seen it being sold on Etsy and Ebay-it is worth it-love it to bits! And I adore brooches that have meaning to me-anything with three things on it (ie three dogs, three hearts, etc) to me represents my three children.
Now the hair. Um, okay it looks like a mess but I promise it looked a lot better when I was inside the house without the wind tossing it around. I made a mistake and set my hair with many (I use something similar to pillow rollers) rollers which then created a head of curls. Geesh, my hair can really curl. Good grief. It's so weird because when I was little my hair was pin straight! Anyhoo-I brushed it out and shaped it and worked on it for over 30 minutes! That's just too much for me. I need a proper haircut that will allow me to work on a hairstyle for less that that. And in the midst of doing my hair and makeup I am fending off a two year old from opening the bathroom door and grabbing all my supplies and a five year old who suddenly needs to potty when mama is in there. It was madness but I like my overall look. Just my hair that came out super curly and was not easily tamed not even with products. Lesson learned: set hair in larger segments not smaller ones!!!!
I love my jeans and yoga pants but when I dress up I much rather prefer to do it vintage style. I feel pretty and put together and oh how did women back then host gatherings with all the garments one wears underneath their dresses. Kudos to them and to me darnit! I pulled off a vintage look and Easter and YES-I am sooooooooooooo beat! I am just happy the babies were happy with their goodies and I shall leave you with a little glimpse of them tearing into their baskets!!!
