Mommy and Me Easter Look, Pink Bow Dress


Happy Monday!  I'm excited for this post because I am teaming up with some amazing blogger mommies to share our mommy and me Easter looks.  Make sure to check out their Easter looks and adorable kids!

When I think of dressing for Easter, I think of feminine dresses and pastel colors.  Perhaps it's because I remember loving the holiday as a kid, and I would always want to wear my prettiest dress when I attended church with my great, great aunt, Maxine.  Everyday I got to spend time with her was so special,  but Easter mornings with her were one of my favorite times.  Because of this memory, I still love to wear feminine dresses for Easter, and this dress from Chicwish couldn't be more perfect for the occasion.  I love how the light pink color and bow detail gives it an ultra feminine feel.  Since this dress is sleeveless (and I'm always cold), I added a pink coat and love the contrast of the two shades together.  I  finished my look with blush ballet flats.  Since this dress is on the shorter side, I thought a flat was more appropriate, plus I know I will be chasing around the twins all day!

Since the holidays in our family are on the casual side, I dressed the twins in pastel colored dress shirts, but finished their look with jeans and sneakers.  I know the boys will be running around all day, so I want them to be comfortable.  This is the first year that they are really celebrating Easter, and I'm so excited for their first Easter Egg hunt!



BROOKE of Pumps and Pushups: "Our church is very casual, so we don’t typically get too dressed up for Easter. But we coordinated our stripes and tried to get a picture where all of us were looking! We were almost successful, oh boys! :) "
ADA of Elegance and Mommyhood: "When I think of getting dressed for Easter, two things come to mind, light pretty pastels and coordinating outfits for the family. Vivian and I did just that with our patterned dresses in mint and pink. My little ballerina loved getting all dolled up in a brand-new outfit, while I shopped my closet for mine. Thankfully, though still a little chilly, it was warm enough to take these photos. We are ready for church on Sunday morning."
ERICA of Pumps and Pushups: "I always associate pretty, pastel colors and white with the Easter holiday. When I found this onesie for baby girl I loved it immediately for pastel blue with hints of teal, pink and yellow throughout. I chose to wear this dress and teal sweater to accent the colors in her outfit and of course had to top both of our looks off with white shoes."



AMY of the Gifted Gabber: "I was so excited when my Mom (who is a talented seamstress) offered to alter two of my saved childhood Easter dresses for my two girls this Easter. The girls look absolutely adorable in my pale pink and mint vintage dresses. I set out on a mission to find a pastel, ruffled dress for myself to coordinate with theirs. I found this peach dress at one of my favorite local boutiques."
SHEA of Shea Lennon: "This Easter, my son Jona and I are wearing my favorite spring color, coral. I admit I had a little too much fun shopping for our coordinating outfits. A couple of years ago, we started the tradition of going to the 7.00am sunrise service at our church. Afterwards, we'll have to see if the Easter Bunny visited our house. (Hopefully, he comes bearing coffee.) Happy Easter!"


LAURA of Why I Do DeClaire: "Claire is growing into quite the fashionista. Although she claims to love 'all the colors' pink seems to be her favorite. When I saw this pink on pink polka dot dress at the store, I knew she would love it. She had quite the time twirling in front of our mirror when we put her in it and was excited to take pictures with mommy! I pulled out an old floral dress I've had and added a denim jacket for an extra layer. It's still chilly here, but incorporating bright colors and floral prints helps to bring the Easter feel no matter the weather!"
RACHAEL of Threads for Thomas: "When I think of dressing for Easter, I think of girlie dresses and pastel colors. Perhaps because I remember loving the holiday as a kid, and I would always want to wear my prettiest dress for when I attended church with my great, great aunt (everyday I got to spend time with her was so special). Today, I still love to dress very feminine on the holiday, and this pink bow dress fits the occasion perfectly. Since we tend to keep holidays casual in our family, I dressed the boys in pastel colored dress shirts, but finished their look with jeans and sneakers. I want them to be comfortable as I know they'll be running around all day, and can not wait to send them on their first Easter egg hunt!"




These Converse sneakers are my new favorite.  Since they are slide ons, not only are they easy to slip on, but the velcro closure is hidden so the boys aren't tempted to play with them!





Ha, I had to share this photo!  Just some #reallife behind the scenes.  Tyler got upset when his hands touched the grass!

  10. Oh no, not the grass!! That face... too cute :) I love your look--the two pinks contrast perfectly. And your boys are adorable in their little button ups and sneakers--I'm going to have to find a pair of those slip on (yay!) Converse for my little guy. This was a fun collaboration, I'm glad we did this again :)

  22. I am sorry I am finally getting around to reading this. This is the ultimate pretty-in-pink dress which is perfect for Easter in all its pastel glory. Love the bow and fit+flare style. Love that you went with head to toe pink. The coat and necklace are so pretty and great idea choosing flats. Your boys look adorable in their dressy shirts, jeans and Converse.

    Congrats on being featured for F21. =)

    I am glad we all did this again. Such stylish moms and kids all in one post. =)
