Outft of the Week - Easter Sunday

When I was a teenager, my mom would give my sister and I $25 each and take us to Ross to pick out our Easter outfits. It was one of my sister and I's favorite days of the year. We hung out in the store for hours, trying to find the perfect thing. We would look for an outfit that was spring-y, something that would look good in pictures, and something that would ultimately scream, "Easter." I know what you're picturing - bright floral dress, large straw hat, mary-janes. Well, I was looking through some pictures recently and I stumbled across a few from Easter a few years back. What was I wearing? A neon pink tank top covered in rhinestones, white capris and flip flops, of course. Klassy.

I don't go shopping for Easter outfits anymore, but I think that is probably for the best. I did finally wear my mint top for the first time. Will I look back at the pictures and cringe? Maybe. But at least there isn't a rhinestone in sight.

  1. What a funny story! I'm pretty sure most of us have a few rhinestone skeletons in our wardrobes (I may or may not remember my own :) You look absolutely fantastic in this outfit, though: it's chic, simple and classy, and I'm sure you won't cringe because of it anytime soon!

    I'm so happy I've discovered your lovely blog! Definitely adding it to my daily reads!
    Have a lovely day!

    1. It's nice knowing other people have some scary rhinestones in their past :)

      I'm so glad you're here, Ivana!

  2. That is hilarious, so funny to look back on, but I bet that rinestone shirt was totally cool when you bought it. I really like your outfit. I wouldn't have thought to combine the mint top with the blue skirt, but it looks great.
