dress: Forever 21 | cardigan: Goodwill | tights: GAP | shoes: Ruche
Do you ever find that one trip to the thrift store can revitalize your whole wardrobe? I had that experience when I bought this cardigan on a whim during a random trip to Goodwill. I had been feeling rather blah about my closet, but this was just the shot of color I needed. Suddenly now I'm wearing this cardigan with everything. I feel like it makes this dress look completely different...normally I think it's rather breezy and slightly sailor-esque, but there's something about it with this cardigan that makes me think of school uniforms. I have no real basis for that, but I think it's a good thing!
Like I mentioned in my last post, my church's Easter (Pascha) festivities are this week, so it's been crazy busy around here! Lots of services, and since I direct the choir, lots and lots of singing...but it's one of my favorite weeks of the year. Tomorrow, we'll be cooking up a storm and hopefully making delicate little wax designs on eggs and dying them bright red...and napping in preparation for the huge late-night party and feast! Such a joyous time of year...
With all the festivities, I'm afraid I've been neglecting this poor blog a bit...but after this week, I have tons of stuff to post. Chris and I actually did two photoshoots with this outfit; I was initially going to put them both in one post, but I thought it better to split them up because they look so different. So stay tuned for that! Also coming up is a Dressipe post with one of my favorite recipes. Of. All. Time. I seriously can't wait to post it...
...and now all this talk of food and feasting has made me hungry! I know Easter has passed for most of you, but I'm curious: do you have any Easter traditions that you look forward to every year? Or did you do something new this year?
(p.s. - the name of this post is also the name of a great album by Kathryn Calder, which you should listen to immediately!)
