happy easter!

Easter is definitely one of my two favorite holidays (the other being Halloween). I'm not lying when I say that it seems to be some act of Mother Nature that Easter is always and notoriously the single prettiest day of the spring season in my little Idahoan town. My family aren't the regular Church attendees, but growing up, I absolutely adored Easter Sundays getting dressed up in a white flowery dress and going to church and eating tons of candy from my Easter basket and just spending the entire day in a Springy/Easter trance of perfection. I don't think Easter can do any wrong.
Unfortunately, I am no longer in my little Idaho town. I was quite upset when I realized I wouldn't have my per usual Easter Sunday at home...but in an act to save all that is wonderful of Easter, my best friends and I decided to have a college-style Easter. We all woke up at the terrible hour of 7:45 AM (as opposed to the 11:30 AM Sunday wake-up call) and dressed up in pretty dresses (or sport coats, if you're Kaleb) and went to church and went to iHop and while we didn't hunt for any eggs, we gorged on our own pre-bought easter candy bought the night before at Walmart. It wasn't home, but in a way, my best friends here have very much become almost like family- transitioning into college together from the very start, going to when homesickness hurts, and all together the people I'm with every single day all day long. It was perfect in its own little way.

I didn't post a St. Patrick's day outfit, so I decided I had to post my Easter outfit. I got this sweet little dress back when there was still a foot of snow on the ground and was planning spring outfits two months early. And now I can finally wear them and post them! Yay! I love the yellow/purple florals in this dress. It makes me feel like spring- even if the weather isn't exactly fitting the perfect sunshiney Easter norm, I still feel sunny wearing this outfit!
I got these shoes in 7th grade. I can't say that for very many, but really, I still wear them all the time. I love that when you buy something, you never really know what that piece will mean in your closet. Like, I bought these on a whim and they've been a crucial part of my closet for six years now (holy cow, that makes me feel old). I also love that even though they're six years old, I still love them and wear them. Many of my 7th grade choices are definitely not something I love today. Haha!


Welp, I have two and a half weeks left until school ends. Somehow, I managed to get the job I interviewed for over Spring Break that I was super nervous for and I start that not even a week later when I come back home. But I'm so excited that I have a job and a job in a lab, nonetheless. All my pre-med friends are so jealous. It pays to have connections!

P.S. can you tell that Niklaas took these pictures? I can.

Oh my, you are just too lovely for words <3 You look as sweet as dutch apple pie in this floral dress and adorable headband. I still have another year of high school, but currently I'm just cherishing holidays at home with my family because I know I'm going to miss it so much when I'm away at college.

Hope you had just a lovely Easter!

Lucky! The Easter weather is always always always terrible here, including this year, haha... But ah, your dress is so perfect for spring! It sounds like your Easter was still wonderful even if you weren't able to spend it at home like usual. Candy and iHop with your best friends? Can't go wrong. :) And that's pretty amazing that those flats have lasted since 7th grade!

Also, congrats on getting the job! That's amazing to hear. :D And only 2.5 more weeks left! Yay!
