What I Wore Easter Sunday

Sunday, March 31, 2013

The Easter vigil mass last night was beautiful. The past few years, I have felt like Easter came way too quickly and I didn't have a chance to truly fulfill my Lenten resolutions or prepare my heart. This year wasn't really an exception, but instead of feeling disappointed, I tried to recognize the small strides that I did make this Lent and also have a prayerful Holy Week. I spent some time alone in front of the tabernacle this week, and I experienced a peace that I haven't felt for a while (things have been way too hectic lately). Stephen and I were also able to go to mass and confession one night which was just what my soul needed. The priest saying mass that night made an analogy that I loved: he said that just as the sun lights the moon, we need to allow Christ's light to be reflected in us. And on another side note, the priest and I started to talk about medical school in confession; it turns out that his sister is a high-risk specialist OB-GYN (so a sign that I should do OB? I hope so). 

The temperature hit a whopping 40 degrees yesterday, which meant that I could forego my normally obligatory sweater tights for more respectable pantyhose (I took things a little too far today though and wore flats with no socks, ending up with snow in between my bare toes). I think the colors of my outfit slightly resemble an Easter egg, but I still love it... I can't think of a better combo than mint and peachy pink (and lace!)

Since we went to the Vigil last night, I wore a more casual outfit for Easter brunch and dinner today. Easter and spring are an excuse to pull out all the pretty pinks and pastels that I have in my closet (I could really use less of those colors, more neutrals) and I'm not complaining.

Oh, how I love this pink blazer! And I love even more that I found it for $30.

Scarf: Etsy

Happy Easter! I hope that it was beautiful and blessed. 

Linking up of course with the ladies at Fine Linen and Purple along with Grace and Plane Pretty.


  1. I love the pastels! It feels like spring!

    Our snow is almost gone in our little corner of Michigan (we only have piles left from plows) and I tried heels today instead of my normal snowy weather boots. I ended up wishing for flats because heels plus toddler hauling were not as sensible as they seemed when I tried them on!

  2. I LOVE both of these outfits!!!! They're super, super cute!

  3. Love both outfits! The pastels are so pretty, & the lace top = gorgeous!

  4. I really like both outfits, but am loving that pink blazer! Super cute!

  7. So pretty, Erika! I LOVE the mint and peach combo in your Mass outfit, and it's consoling to know I wasn't the only one who ditched tights and socks in the name of Spring, only to regret it later =) Happy Easter!
