For Peep's Sake!




Happy Easter, my fellow fashion peeps!

I hope everyone is enjoying themselves on this Easter Sunday. I have fond childhood memories of Easter morning. Growing up with many siblings meant a strategy had to be set in place. My mom (aka, the Easter bunny) would set up individual baskets filled with springtime knick knacks such as jump ropes, bubbles, sidewalk chalk and the likes along with a big chocolate bunny. Those were set on the dining room table and were clearly identified. Chocolate and candy-filled plastic eggs were then hidden around the house. We were all up at the crack of dawn and made sure every sibling was awake before starting the hunt (we had our civilized moments.) Once every goody had been found, we would empty the contents of our baskets and divvy up the goods equally. That way, we could all have fun and, most importantly, had the same amount of chocolate as the others. Sharing is caring after all! We would then get dressed up in our Sunday best and go to church. When I say Sunday best, I literally mean that. My mom (the talented seamstress that she is) had made us matching outfits for church. The boys had the cutest little beige overalls with matching dinosaur-print shirts and the girls had these frilly floral dressed with white aprons that had floral appliqu├ęs on them. I absolutely adored my dress while my sister was less enthused... My brothers also preferred less formal wear. I have to say, we looked adorable and well-coordinated! Lucky for you, I got my dad to send me a couple pictures of us all decked out for Easter. The first picture was in 1994 and I was clearly not in a good mood... The second picture was a year later and I was definitely happier. This year's festivities are low key and I am thankful to be spending it having dinner surrounded by family.
