A Fashionable Easter

A very fashionable Easter Sunday, thanks to NY and Co.

In my household, Easter is taken very seriously.

The Easter feast is prepared days in advanced. Alarms are set for three hours before the time we need to leave. We live only 15 minutes away from church, which should give you an idea of how intense my family can be. So you can say that I was in a bit of trouble when my mother realized that I still did not have my dress on the eve if Easter Sunday. Cue the passive-aggressive remarks from my mother.

Luckily, NY and Company came through for me. I also have to tip my hat to Eva Mendes for creating such a stunning collection. I managed to get my hands on the last Eva Mendes Collection Romina Lace Sheath Dress in “Pale Blush.” The pastel tone was what initially drew me to try it on, but the detailed lace overlay is what sold me.  I adore how feminine it looks and how comfortable it was. It has an elastic banded waist—perfect for making room for the 10 pounds of food I inhaled.

I paired the dress for more conservative, closed-toe shoes at church. However, for my mini-photo shoot with my sister with my sister, (Thanks Misha for sticking with me even when we were nearly attacked by bees.) I opted for chunky neutral wedges. These are the Carlos by Carlos Santana Bristol Wedge Sandal. I got mine from Ross for only $28! The cork heel with the lace detailing gave me a boho-chic vibe that I was really loving.

Because the dress is so gorgeous alone, I didn’t want to overpower it with jewelry, so I paired it with my Alex and Ani Birthstone Bangle and a few rings.

I also wanted to keep my makeup fairly neutral, so I used my trusty Too Faced Sweet Peach palette for my eyes. I finished off the look with the Milani Amore Matte Lip Cream in “Loved.” It stayed put even through my three-hour power nap. Drool-included.
