Easter Parade

3:22:00 PM

Growing up, my family had a tradition of getting new dresses every spring/Easter. My mom usually made the dresses. Looking back, I don't know how. All I managed to squeak out this year was a skirt for myself. It was long overdue. I have this problem: every time I see a cute skirt somewhere, I just can't bring myself to buy it because I am convinced that I can make it for a fraction of the cost. This has recently resulted in a major lack of skirts which is a problem when you're nursing. I finally finished one and decided to include it in my Easter outfit.

Shirt: Old Navy, Scarf: scrap piece of ribbing, Belt: Mom's old belt from college, Shoes: thrifted, necklace: birthday present from Mom

I called out to my sisters about using a striped shirt and got a general consensus that it worked. I felt a little daring wearing it to church and realized that the no-fear, up-to-date Rachel I knew five years ago has turned into a mom. :)

Speaking of being a mom...

The kiddies. And, no, I didn't make a single thing... other than them I guess.

Did you have a good Easter? Ours was wonderful. Although we were by ourselves, we really enjoyed relaxing together and felt so much gratitude for out Savior.

  3. I admired that skirt when you guys had us over for dinner, I didn't realize you had made it. I guess I should have known. You are so talented.
