I was initially planning to have a quiet weekend at home, with just an immediate family. I was looking forward to it, because usually my holidays are pretty hectic with a lot of people over and a lot of cooking.
However, I have to admit that when I received my Bloomingdales order with the DVF dress, I realized it would be a perfect Easter dress and I started regretting that we are not going to have a company after all. This is what a pretty dress could do to me, lol. Coincidentally, that same evening, a friend called me to invite us to an Easter branch at their house. Of course I said yes, I could not pass on the opportunity to wear a dress without even having to cook. My friend apologized for inviting us in the last minute. Do you think she might have gotten a new dress too?
On Saturday, we always go to church for the Blessing of the Food, it is an old Slavic/Polish tradition. Basically, you put bread, wine, sausages, decorated eggs, salt, sugar lamb (symbol of Christ) and candy in the basket covered with a doily, decorate the top with some green twigs and take it to church for blessing. The eggs are then broken and shared at Easter breakfast, along with other blessed food. Pastry lamb is put in the middle of the table.

We also do an Easter Egg Hunt, right after breakfast, this is organized by our neighbours for the whole block. We have 35 kids on our street and they bring in a lot of candy!
As I mentioned, the other day I have received the Polka-Dot Tie-Front Blouse, I ordered from White House Black market. After trying in on, I decided that it would be just a perfect thing to wear to the Food Blessing.
At first, I tried it with black cafe capris and the new Theory jacket.

The blouse is 100% silk and the seaming is perfect. I think you can also wear the ties loose, it still looks good imo. It has nice covered little buttons and gathering in the back. I really like it and I think it is well worth the money.
