Hello and welcome to Friday Favorites #8.  This week it's a lot about Easter.  I hope yours was wonderful and blessed!

To start off, my youngest (Disney intern) daughter surprised me on Saturday night.  She and Darling Husband cooked up a plan and he sneaked her in the front door while I was in the family room.  He called me into the living room and there she was still in her Tomorrowland uniform--aww, love that!  In the back of my mind I had a small hope that she could break away from work, but then figured it might be one of their busiest weekends.  Apparently, several interns didn't have to work.

Easter & Brunch Outfit
When Disney Daughter (DD) whirled in, she told me she brought a white dress and yellow jacket and wanted to dress alike, again!  All of my pre-planned Easter outfit ideas went out the window.  Since the weather has been getting nice and chilly at night/early morning, I selected cool-weather items you've seen before, but have not put together.  Goldenrod top from my LOFT try on, Free People jacket, pleated skirt, leopard booties with anklets(!).  (Shown above.)  She was a little disappointed that the colors didn't match better, but it was noticed at church that we were dressed alike, so mission accomplished!

Because it heats up so quickly, I was already too warm by brunch time.  The same basic pieces were kept, but I swapped out the jacket for a long, light-weight Eileen Fisher cardigan, booties for sandals and my recently made necklace that I ❤️.  DD decided to change to be more comfortable.  We were joined by my oldest daughter.  (Below.)  Although my outfits were not colors you'd think of to wear for Easter, I was really happy with them.

Easter Bunny Visit
I was fortunate enough to have coffee with the Easter bunny on Saturday morning.  The Easter bunny also visited with us at brunch on Sunday.
Dress Becomes Skirt
Yep, a little spending.  I found this Lularoe dress marked down to $7 at a consignment store.  Below is the after and before.   The color is great--a yellowy orange.  It was cut off at the waist and elastic added.  It's poly, so I wouldn't have wanted to wear it as a dress, as a skirt, I'm good.  I really like it now.  The print is an ink-blue color and there are a few unicorns scattered around.
Cotton Unmentionables
Because so many pant styles are high-waisted these days, I looked for an underwear option that was also higher waisted.  I found this Modern Movement brand at Dillard's.  The style is 95% cotton, 5% spandex.  They are comfortable, cool and not bulky at all, and would recommend them.  I'm not 100% sure this is the exact style I purchased at the store, but it's the closet I could find online.  

Thanks for joining this Friday Favorites!  I'll see you next week!
