Every year, a couple of weeks before Easter, I start obsessing about getting THE perfect Easter dress. I’m sure you can all relate but whenever I’m on a mission to find the one, I almost always fail. My acquisitions of some of my favorite dresses have been chance encounters, more happenstance in nature. I always seem to find the one when I’m not really looking. So this year, instead of getting caught up in the hunt for the perfect dress and forgetting what Easter is all about in the process, I decided that I would wear one of the dresses from my existing wardrobe and focus on what’s important. The girls didn’t get new Easter dresses either. I had them choose from their closet as well.
I was so happy to find this J.Crew dress, that I hadn’t worn in a while, all nicely dry cleaned and ready to go. The funny coincidence was that all of us ended up choosing a dress in a dark shade of blue, even my husband (not the dress part 🙂 ). Although I don’t make it a habit to color coordinate my entire family, I thought it turned out to be the perfect ensemble. Alas, it wasn’t meant to be. My second daughter ended up getting sick on Saturday and the two of us stayed home on Easter Sunday while my husband and the other girls jaunted off to church in their matching blue outfits. Oh well, I thought I’d still share with you my Easter dress-to-be that never was.
