Unlike past Easters, I was actually able to wear the outfit that I had planned to wear. I purchased this lilac circle skirt a while back at Nordstrom because I loved the way it fit. I was also intrigued by the color because I had never purchased a skirt in lilac, aka as violet, lavender, mauve, or light purple. Unfortunately, it just didn't seem to pair well with any of the tops that I had in mind. I tried neutrals like black and white and I also tried to stay within the same hue but it just didn't seem to work, so I just tucked it away in my closet for another day. Then I spotted the color lilac featured in different magazines and blogs and it was being paired with all sorts of different colors.

I decided to give it another try starting with a top in my favorite cobalt blue. Blue always seems to work out for me. No wonder it's my favorite color. I know a lot of people celebrate Easter with a big dinner with family and/or friends, a fun egg hunt for the kids and some even give out gifts. We keep it pretty simple in our family. We put on our Sunday best, go to church and fellowship with our church family. For me personally, I sometimes feel like all the festivities and the preparation that comes with it, albeit fun, can distract me from what Easter is truly all about, celebrating the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. How do you celebrate Easter? Do you keep it low-key or go all out?
