Five On Friday – Easter Sunday Style

All I have to say today is TGIF!!!!  This has been the longest week, and I am so thankful for two glorious days off!  Brian is home from his business trip so things are back to normal after what can only be described as a tumultuous week.  I’m just ready to kick back on the couch with B and a couple of beers, catch up on all of the TV we missed, and relax. 

Easter is right around the corner, so it’s already time to start thinking about finding some pastel pretties to wear for the big day.  Growing up, my parents always bought a brand new dress for me to wear on Easter, and I have continued that tradition for myself throughout the years (with the exception of my broke college student years – ha!) because who doesn’t love a reason to buy a new dress?  I always try to pick one that I can also wear to work, or to weddings, or vacation, or for family pictures, or something so I can get my money’s worth. 

Here are the top picks that I came across and couldn’t resist sharing.

O N E – My Dream Dress

Well isn’t this dress just floral purple perfection!!  The style is so flattering… it reminds me of an old fashioned June Cleaver dress, but redesigned for the current times.  So elegant and classic.  And as you can see, I called it my dream dress, because that’s most certainly what it is… I just can’t bring myself to spend that much money!  Boo.   


T W O – First Runner Up

Ruffles ruffles ruffles!  This beauty could be worn for much more than Easter – it would be perfect for a wedding, gala, or even a fancy date night!  And the black one?  Talk about the perfect little black dress!  I would definitely wear this one in all three colors and it would be really hard to choose which one to buy.  Why do I always have such expensive taste, though?!





T H R E E – Second Runner Up

Aaaall the heart eyes for the lace details and the low-cut back on this dress!!  Seriously the epitome of a feminine dress.  Any woman would look lovely in it.



F O U R – Third Runner Up

Lace all over and a price that’s much more my speed!  I love this dress, but I'm thinking that maybe it's a little short for church, though?  Hard to tell, because that model is probably 6 feet tall!



F I V E – The One I’m Actually Wearing

I bought this dress late last summer at Kohl’s when they put all of the summer clothes on clearance, so unfortunately it’s no longer available online.  I’ve never bought an Easter dress so far in advance before, but I couldn’t pass this one up!  The fit is so flattering, the cut out back is beautiful, and the price was a friggin’ steal.  Not to mention it’s Lauren Conrad!  Who doesn’t love her?

So tell me, what do you do for Easter?  Do you always buy a new dress, too?

  7. That second dress...I die!! I have always loved getting an Easter dress each year, but this year I am re-wearing a white Lilly dress that is long sleeved that I wore for my bridesmaids luncheon. Basically I have a great selection of white dresses now and I am looking for any excuse to wear them haha! Steven and I are going to HH in Five Points tonight, we'll have a beer for you and B! :)

  8. I love the Lauren Conrad stuff at Kohls! That dress is perfect! I wish we had nicer weather at Easter.. it ALWAYS rains on Easter in Oregon and is usually around 50 degrees, so being in the mood to wear a pretty spring dress doesn't really happen. Boo. I will live vicariously through your pretty dress picks!
