Hi lovelies! I hope you've had a wonderful week! As the Easter season approaches, we anticipate it by preparing many things. We prepare our homes for company, we prepare our meal plans, and we prepare our coordinating family outfits. But most importantly, we prepare our hearts. Easter is the time where we reflect on the resurrection of Jesus Christ, the hope of our salvation. The resurrection of Christ from the dead was the fulfillment of the divine redemption plan of God. If Jesus had died for our sins, but had not risen from the dead as foretold in Isaiah 53, then the prophecy would never have been fulfilled and our faith would be futile. But the fact is that His earthly grave could not contain Him. "But God raised Him from the dead, freeing Him from the agony of death, because it was impossible for death to keep its hold on Him" - Acts 2:24. After three days in a borrowed tomb, Jesus rose in victory, breaking the stronghold of sin, hell, and the grave. We have been raised to life with Christ and the hope that we have is living because HE lives (1 Peter 1:3). What a glorious reason to rejoice! Our faith is not based on an empty promise, but on an empty grave. Hallelujah! As we celebrate Easter and gather with our church families to reflect, rejoice, and worship, we also want to approach God in reverence, giving Him our best. Part of that is the tradition of dressing in our Easter best to go church and show our honor and reverence to God. We’ve captured the bright and jubilant spirit of Easter with the items in our Easter Edit collection. So, let’s take a look at what this collection has to offer.
Looking for something a little different this Easter Sunday? Look no further! These two dresses are newer pieces and I have to say, might be my personal favorites out of the collection. First up is our Garden Floral Dress. The peachy floral design is a perfect Springtime color palette that is universally flattering. You’ll LOVE the buttery soft, lightweight feel of the silky fabric. The orange and green stripe border around the dress create a unique and eye-catching look that is sure to bring you compliments. The slit in the flutter sleeve is just one of the many little details that I think make this dress so very special. No matter how you accessorize it, this dress is effortlessly chic. Second is our absolutely beautiful Multi Geo Puff Sleeve Tiered Dress. I wore this dress for a photoshoot with Beth and Ashley and when I tell you I fell in LOVE. It’s one of those dresses that looks pretty on the rack, but takes on a whole new life when you put it on. The contemporary design makes it wearable for any age. The bright colors will ensure that you brighten up any room you walk into. The square neckline is so flattering on, and the puff sleeves add a dainty, feminine quality that is super trendy. My favorite features of this dress are the pockets (who doesn’t love those?!) and the slightly longer hem in the back that keeps you covered no matter how you move as you go about your day. Pair this dress with heels for a classy look, or sandals for something a little more laid back. This dress is easy to style and effortlessly beautiful!
It’s basically an unwritten rule that you MUST take family photos on Easter Sunday. After all, everyone is dressed in their Easter best, so why not get a great family photo out of it? For mother-daughter outfit coordinating, the dresses in this collection pair beautifully together. Our Blue Shift Dress, Butterfly Dress, and Constance Blue Jumpsuit are three options that are beautifully different, but they still coordinate and photograph well together. They offer different shapes, textures, and even styles for a coordinating look that is diverse yet balanced. For a dressier look, pair these pieces with strappy heels and timeless jewelry like pearls or a simple gold chain. For a more casual look, pair them with your favorite sandals and jewelry with a pop of color. Our Bridgers Maxi Dress and Maeve Maxi Dress are more beautiful options. They not only coordinate in color, but also in print! With the pink and orange cheetah print of the Bridgers Maxi and the pink and orange ombre zebra print of the Maeve Maxi, these dresses are feminine, fun, and perfect for the whole day! These dresses transition easily from church service to Easter lunch/dinner and eliminate the hassle of changing in between. Whether your color palette this Easter is shades of blue or hues of orange, any of these dresses coordinate beautifully and make a wonderful option for mother-daughter matching this Easter!
Whether you’re looking for something fun, seasonal, and colorful, or something classic and symbolic, we’ve got options for you! I am absolutely gushing over our adorable Easter Egg Drop Earrings! They feature a silver glitter heart stud with an egg-shaped dangle that has a white and light teal chevron pattern with multi-color pastel glitter. These earrings are the perfect Easter basket item for your mini-me or for a cute and fun accessory for yourself. Paired with our Floppy Bunny Tee, these earrings create a look that everybunny will notice! Our Kendrick Jacket is the perfect layering piece for your Easter outfit. Available in classic white and rich navy, this lightweight cotton blend jacket is comfortable, sleek, and stylish, giving you the look of a jean jacket without the extra bulk. If you’re looking for something more traditional that can be worn year-round, our gorgeous Filigree Cross Earrings are a great option. The cross is an instrument of death, but by it, we as believers have eternal life! The cross reminds us of the sacrifice that Jesus made so that we could be reconciled to God. Wear these earrings in remembrance of that sacrifice and to represent Christ to the world! If you’d like to see more of our cross jewelry, check out our Christian Jewelry that is a part of our Faith collection here.
