So I guess it's sort of good (I feel bad for saying this) that on Tuesday I'll be heading to China, where there are just no Catholic churches and attendance is not an option. Why am I going there? My brother lives there with his wife and their beee-eautiful baby girl, Rachel. I'm so excited to see them all! I'll try to keep up my posting while I'm there, but I'm afraid my outfits won't normally be very much fun, my brother disapproves of "flashy" dressing and since I don't get to see him all the time I try to avoid fights.
Anyway, the point of this is to show my Easter outfits! The first one here is from last night's Easter Vigil Mass, and I also wore it to cast my ballot for the Canadian election:
This dress is Isaac Mizrahi for Target, so already a bargain, but I went two better and found it in a thift shop, AND on 50% off day. So it was about $5. Win! Also: it's the start of sunblock season! I use a moisturizer with sunblock year-round, but in the summer I go a little crazy. Tanning is not only unhealthy, but for me it's just plain impossible. I burn like crazy! Good thing I've learned to embrace my paleness.
And on Easter Sunday itself, I thought I'd go a bit brighter and busted out the first of my sundresses. Needed a cardigan for Mass, of course, but I'm so excited that it's finally warm enough to even consider getting out the thin cotton things.
Maybe the outfit could have used a belt...I'm not sure what colour though. Black or brown might be too harsh against the girly floral.
Shoeper Shoe Challenge #13! I've actually worn these before, also to Sunday Mass, but this is the first time they lasted the whole day as part of the outfit. Somehow I never wear these anywhere except Church, maybe it's because they're so ladylike?
