This is what I wore to Easter. Not much of a pastels gal, but I do love an orangey red. This is one of my very favorite colors. Years ago, I purchased a shantung pleated skirt from Banana Republic in this color (last seen here). At the time, Banana called it Chinese Red. I purchased a matching silk knit tank and wore it like a dress to my cousin's wedding. When I saw this skirt online earlier this year, I was hoping it was the same shade and it is. I had it hanging in my closet next to the shantung one and they are the same exact color. Even more exciting, this tank from Ann Taylor I purchased last spring and it too matches perfectly!

And one of the best parts of Easter fashion is what the little ones wear. My sister is Emerson's personal stylist, always making sure she's dressed to the nines for every holiday. This holiday was no different with her frothy aqua frock. Aunt Debbie gave Emerson the headband and purse to go with the dress, but Emerson added her own sartorial spin with an extra bow, bracelet, and her red sparkly Mary Janes!

And to give you a peek into how these outfit shoots go, without me realizing, Karl took a few pictures of me and Emerson rocking out to Spotify. The song you ask? “Lean Back” by Terror Squad. I sing this often to Emerson when trying to get her into her carseat (come on, can you say lean back without this song ending up in your head?) and it is now one of her favorite tunes.  Emerson don't dance, she just pulls up her pants and does the rockaway. She leans back, leans back, leans back, leans back in her carseat…

    So freakin’ cute, both Mommy and daughter. Don’t you just love the little girl Easter outfits? My granddaughter showed up for church with a turned- back organza garden party hat accessorized with a rhinestone broach right in the center- and her Hello Kitty sparkle shoes. I loved it!

    You make me want to make you adopt me.

      You crack me up. Emerson would likely love it, but no more rooms in the house, you’d have to share a Molly Mutt with Cindy! 😉

    The pictures of you two dancing are adorable!

    Your husband’s love for his family shines through in these pictures. He captured his ladies’ pure joy. There’s nothing more precious. I love these pictures of the two of you.

    You both look great. And I’m dying at the pic of E with the phone. All she needs is a cup of cofee and she can start her own blog.

    hah! Love the pics! So fun! Love the outfits too! 🙂

    Ahhh! Your daughter is so adorable! My two-year-old daughter has the same sparkly red shoes, and she calls them her dancing shoes. Too cute.

    I have to agree. I’m a fan of that orangey-red color as well, but I also love pastels.

    That’s better than what I sing to the kids to get them to buckle up in the car…”Ridin’ Dirty.” Yup. Works every time. Mostly if just to keep me from singing anymore.

    You look amazing by the way!

  21. April 2, 2013 / 11:19 am

    Cute! Love the look on your face as you watch your little girl bop about.

    (And I totally thought you were wearing a dress – they do match well!)

  22. April 2, 2013 / 11:11 am

    I too love the “Chinese Red” and mint green and the two of them together- so you look great with your baby girl!
