A Precious Polyester Easter

Polyester Easter
This Easter was a bit more special than others because it was Cora’s first Easter. It was absolutely gorgeous out and the weather couldn’t have been anymore perfect for an Easter egg hunt. Since I knew that Cora would be hunting eggs and I would be chasing after her, I opted not to wear a dress for this holiday which really trends with the cutest spring dresses.

My light gray with hearts polyester tunic is made by Ann Taylor Loft. I scored this splendidly spring top for only $5 while thrifting at the Salvation Army with my beastie bestie from college. I had originally picked the tunic out for her but while she was trying it on I was secretly hoping that it didn’t fit her so I could have it — yeah, I’m that kind of friend. I layered under the tunic a lavender racer back tank from American Eagle.
And — Oh look, my typical clearance skinny jeans from Target. I do have other jeans but when I find a great pair of jeans at an extraordinarily good price, I buy up all those bad boys in my size.

Recently, I had seen that the new trend this spring season is 70’s inspired clothes. Which means that terribly awful Pocahontas fringe is back (sorry to all you fringe lovers) and exceedingly flared jeans, aka bell bottoms are now the style. When you’re a mere 5’2″, extremely flared jeans are your mortal enemy. Nothing makes you look shorter (at least for me) than bell bottoms. There’s nothing about the massive amount of fabric from my knee down that helps elongate my very short legs. All the flare that my vertically challenged legs can handle is a very minor boot cut. So it looks like I’ll be off trend for awhile wearing my clearance skinny jeans since I refuse to make myself look any shorter than I already am. However, my sandals appear to be quite on point since I had seen an almost identical pair in the Michael Kors summer collection. I bought these Italian made sandals last summer from TJ Maxx. I was allured by the ever so versatile gold leather straps. Any type of metallic accessory is a sure shot pairing since they can be used to dress up any outfit or can be casually worn. Speaking of accessories, on my wrists I’m wearing my good ol’ faithful Trollbeads (I have yet to find an outfit that they don’t match) and around my neck is an Origami Owl necklace. I love my Origami Owl living locket because I am able to taylor it to the occasion or holiday just by switching out the teeny tiny little charms inside. For example, today in my locket I had a Bible and Sun charm along with some birthstone gems.

While today we consume ham and far too much chocolate and hunt Easter eggs, this day is because He has risen. Jesus lives and because of Him we can live too.
