Good Hare Day!

I may be anti-holiday sweater, but Peter Cottontail shoes for Easter?  Yes, please!  I couldn't resist wearing these British bunnies from Irregular Choice to Easter church and dinner with my family.  They were a big hit with my 18 month old niece, but my 22 year old brother called me Alice all day (as in Wonderland).  Wish I'd had them when I threw a Mad Hatter party two years ago!  The funniest comment came from my cousin Nic, who chided me not to rub my heels together lest they multiply.  Clever boy.

It made me happy to see so many people "dressed" for church.  In the last several years, I've noticed a significant relaxation in "appropriate" Sunday dress.  I know it sounds old-fashioned, but I would never dream of wearing jeans to church.  I know full well that God doesn't care what I wear, but dressing up a bit is a sign of respect, and also adds to the celebratory nature of worship.   I realize that I may be in the minority here.  That's perfectly okay.  I don't mind being the only person in a dress (or bunny shoes).

Whether you celebrate Easter or not, I hope each of you enjoyed the wonderful, warm Spring weekend!

  2. I totally agree, jeans are not for church, in my opinion. I wish our society dressed up a little bit more like years ago. Love your Easter shoes!

  3. These shoes are so great, so funny, such a conversation piece. Love them. And they go so well with your pretty dress. I give you a ten for this outfit.
