Easter Dresses

I think we can agree that Easter is always a good excuse to splurge on that “new spring dress” – the one you’ve been eyeing since the spring merchandise started rolling in.  Whether you want to opt for a more traditional dress or branch out with a splash of color, there are so many gorgeous options.  Yoana Baraschi is one of our go-tos for beautiful lace detailing, Nanette Lepore and Trina Turk also have some fun choices if you are going for a more delicate look.  For bold color, flowers, stripes and a mod feel, check out Shoshanna, Milly, Alice & Trixie or Eva Franco.  Most of these designers can be found at local boutiques like Kiskadee, Zoe Boutique,  Hysteria and Periwinkle.

Monday’s Must Haves: Easter Table

Is Easter really this weekend?  If it totally crept up on you (like it did for us) – then you might have just started to think about your Easter table.  For those of you hosting the whole fam for Easter brunch or lunch, we found several cute and clever ideas to spruce up your table.  Feeling crafty? Some of these are fun projects that you can get the kids involved in too – like folding bunny napkins or dying eggs for your flower arrangement. If you go for the chocolate bunny centerpiece, don’t be surprised if the ears are missing on Sunday! MMHEasterTable
