As a child, I thought Easter was the greatest thing ever. I got a new dress, new white patent shoes, and a little white bonnet to wear to church, and all of the older women would ooh and ahh at us in our Easter attire. After church, the ladies in my family would prepare a Southern feast, which was followed by presentation of Easter baskets and an Easter egg hunt.
As I’ve grown older and grown in my faith, I’ve realized what Easter is truly about. I look forward to church on Easter Sunday to hear the message of the resurrection of Christ. And while I know that Jesus couldn’t care less what I wear to church, I enjoy getting a new Easter dress and getting a little more dressed up than usual to take part in the celebration!
I typically wear a Lilly dress for Easter, but as the hemlines creep a little higher each season, I think I’ll be picking something a little more church appropriate this year. (And the store was closed when I went to buy my Easter dress. Haha #storyofmylife) My taste in Easter dresses is typically very traditional, so if we share that trait, I think you will enjoy the picks below! With the exception of the Lilly dresses, everything is under $150. I typically splurge a little bit on my Easter dress, just because spring fever is getting the best of me and I know I can wear it to at least one wedding shower and one wedding. Happy shopping, my friends!
