easter eggs & coconut

I can't believe I spent my groundbreaking, milestone of my 100th post on Saturday
talking on and on about bicycles and basketball.
What a bummer.
I will make up for it now... second thought...
 Don't hold me to that.

This is my Easter themed outfit, I didn't try too hard, but I admit I spotted this cardigan at Old Navy during their clearance extravaganza and it makes me sooooo happy.
So I did combine ruffles, florals, and pleats.
THE TRIFECTA!
Remember how I was raving about pleats and then ended up owning some?
This was a skirt I have owned since before I started college... thank you Isaac Mizrahi for your acclamation for elastic waistbands, you come in handy on holidays that center on deviled eggs and sugary treats. 
Also, to be honest... This cardigan was peeled off after these pictures because it is out of control hot and humid here, and I was melllllttttinnnngggg. It's going to be a rough summer.
Did you guys have the most wonderful Easter ever? 
We kinda mixed traditions today with margaritas (!!!!) for lunch, family dinner, 
and coconut cake.  
I hate coconut. 
 Does your family ever repeatedly ignore you when it comes to desserts? 
Oh, they knoooooow I don't like it.  That never stops them.
Meanie-heads.

Enjoy your Easter Monday, well I will... I don't have work or school today.
I'll be lounging and studying for Exam #1.
The countdowns are on:
graduation: 12 days!
royal wedding: FOUR DAYS!
my birthday: 44 days (okay, I'm a BIT ahead of myself here... but just so you know-- it's coming!)
the only egg i got to decorate this year... so i did it big :)

  1. I love your skirt! And I also hate coconut, so I hear ya. My mom seems to remember that my brother hates sweet potatoes, but she always forgets that I hate carrots and celery. I guess I wasn't as dramatic about it growing up. But hors d'oeuvres I don't like are not as big of a bummer as coconut cake!

  2. I hate sweet potatoes too! I mean, that's it... I like everything else, so why is it so hard? Haha, drama, drama, drama! Big dessert let-down. Hope you had a super Easter!

  4. Probably my favorite of your outfits so far! A skirt tucked into an a-line skirt is always a winner in my book...and you included a floral print! I die!!

    And ditto on coconut. The only exceptions for me however are in pina coladas and this amazing sorbet by Ciao Bella. But at least you had Margaritas!!!!!!!

  15. This is a perfect Easter outfit! Love the pastels :)

    Ha, my 100th post was the other day, too. I spent it lamenting over what to wear this weekend... not exactly monumental or inspirational. At least we're staying true to ourselves!
