What I'd Wear Wednesday: Easter

What I'd wear today if I could: this fun skirt from Charlotte Russe. I got it last week on a hunt for something to wear for Easter. I'd wear it today, but I'm planning on taking Fly to the playground -- and I'm not really a skirt- on- the-playground kind of mom.

One of these days, I'm going to grow up. It was a tradition in my family for us kids to have a new outfit for Easter. I guess I never grew out of that tradition. I didn't understand the reason for a new outfit at Easter was that last year's Easter dress didn't fit and my fall school clothes weren't dressy enough (yes, those were the two times a year we usually went clothes shopping). Now, that's usually not a problem for me at this point in my life.

But still I shop.

Easter might not be that big of a deal if JP's aunt and uncle didn't invite his family to their club every Easter. It's kind of a big deal. This skirt doesn't really say "yacht club" to me, but sometimes I feel a little rebellious and like to poke fashion convention in the eye.

Oh, yeah. A rebel in a flowered peasant skirt. "Stand back, everyone in a suit or Lily Pulitzer dress! There's a bohemian in our midst!"

I'm still not sure what I'm wearing for Easter . . . . But I'm keeping this skirt.

Love the skirt! Easter came too quickly this year, I normally get myself a new dress or skirt too - but haven't managed to accomplish that this year.

I love the way it is screaming Spring at me. I couldn't even attempt to wear it here yet, sadly.

I doubt I'll ever out grow the new Easter outfit thing either. However, this year I am unmotivated to buy new clothes. I'm just waiting until the baby fat magically disappears.
