Mommy and Mini Easter Looks, a Collaboration among 7 bloggers.

Last year, myself and some of my favorite mommy bloggers - some of whom show their beautiful kids on their blogs sometime - did this amazing Mommy+Mini Easter Collaboration which you can read all about it here. I have gotten together with these awesome ladies this year again, just like we have done the previous two Christmas-es, too. These Easter and Christmas Mommy+Mini posts are my most favorite ones I do each year, as far as collaborations go. Not only do I get to have a fun photo-shoot with my mini me too but I get to dress her up each time. Now that she is 4, she chooses a lot of her own outfits too, so it is a lot of fun.

This Dove Blue+White Cold Shoulder Ruffled Dress is a recent purchase and this along another Dove Blue+White Dress I have purchased this year are my favorite buys of 2017, so far. I love the easy breezy material of the dress and with those thin stripes it looks like seersucker. The midi length is just right, the pastel colors are perfect for Easter and let's not talk about the ruffled over-the shoulder look. It has two thin ties on each side so you can go the off-shoulder or the cold-shoulder route. I paired it with some Faux Suede Camel Tassel Sandals (and they are very comfy by the way; these ones), a Beautiful Mauve+Magenta Flower Crown and some Light Ombre Mint Tassel Hoops by Target's current jewelry collection with Bauble Bar (these ones) which match Vivian's Linen Mint Dress. I love the crochet neckline of Viv's Dress which she paired herself with Thin White Tights which have light pink polka dots and New Blush Pink Suede Moccasin Sneakers by Gap. She also wore her New Tulle+Feather Bunny Ear Headband. The temps were about 70-72 degrees on Monday (yesterday) when we shot these photos. Hopefully it will be warm come Easter Sunday when I plan to re-wear this dress. But I will probably buy a New Easter Dress for my sweetie. What are your Easter plans?! Let me know in the comment section. =)

Look at everyone's looks below in the collages, visit these ladies' blogs and read on to see everyone's thoughts and plans for Easter.

"Our church has a special Resurrection service and is hosting a coffee and doughnut fellowship time along with family picture time (photographers will come to the church and photograph families). We will also be attending numerous egg hunts and a few family meals."
"This is our first Easter as a family of four, so I was excited to have two little ones to coordinate this year. We got family pictures taken with my husband's side of the family last weekend, so our outfits did double duty. Everyone wore denim and pastel colors for the pictures, so that worked out pretty perfectly for Easter as well. We are ready to go to Sunrise Easter service at our church, and then head home to see what the Easter Bunny brought!"

"Easter is such a special time. We're so looking forward to fun baskets full of outdoor toys, egg hunts and a fun family BBQ. Most important of all, I love sharing the resurrection story with my boys and spending the morning in church!"
"For Easter Sunday we will be going to church and then Vivian will have an egg hunt in our front yard and later will open her basket of goodies to see what Easter Bunny brought her. We coordinated our pastels together. I am wearing a dove blue+white striped cold-shoulder ruffle dress while she has on a mint sundress and blush pink suede sneakers that match the blush pink dots of her white tights. Happy Easter Ladies!"
"This Easter, Aubrey and I will be wearing everything used! Missy A is wearing an outfit that was handed down to her by some sweet friends of ours whose daughter is a year older and have been so kind as to pass all her outgrown clothes on to us. She loves these baby doll style of shoes and gets really excited when she gets to wear them. You may recognize the dress I’m wearing from last year’s mommy and me collab! Since this year I have resolved to add nothing new to my closet, I’ll be sporting this casual favorite of mine in a new way as we celebrate the day with family."

"The girls are rocking some one-shoulder seersucker dresses handmade by their grandmother. I'm wearing a coral Altar'd State dress from my closet that works well with the floral colors of their dress. We are really looking forward to spending time with family this Easter. And while we do participate in a few Easter egg hunts, I am trying my best to keep this holiday about Jesus. Happy Easter, everyone!" 
"Although Easter is a casual holiday in my family, I do like to look put together.  I love the idea of wearing whites, pastels, and florals for the holiday, so this year I'm going with a little white dress.  To match my boys, I will be dressing them in my favorite white button down from the GAP, and finishing their outfit with jeans and sneakers.  I want them to be comfortable since I know they will be running around outside all day, and hunting for Easter eggs, so dressing up their sneakers and jeans is a perfect solution."
