Being Brickner : Easter Excitement

Easter Excitement

I can't even believe that it's the last day of March, that tomorrow we embrace April, & best of all, that Easter is now right around the corner!!  I look forward to Easter each year for all of the same reasons everyone else does, but also because it falls on my spring break.  I am so excited to spend all day, every day with Waverly Maye for an entire week & also because once that hits, I can start counting down to summer vacation.  When all my dreams really do come true.

I love that Waverly can take a more active part in this year's Easter festivities, I just know she is just going to have the best time!!  Her obsession for the outdoors paired with the one for running endlessly pretty much seals the deal that an Easter Egg Hunt will be the highlight of her year.  And of course, another excuse to give her some treats & a couple of spring styles is one I will gladly take.
 
Pottery Barn Easter Basket Liner
I plan to add a couple more goodies to her basket, but got a pretty good start during my trip to NYC.  The yellow sandals & mint jeans are from Zara, which is definitely my favorite place to get pieces for Waverly's wardrobe.  Other than the fact that I love the colors, I know Waverly will love trying the sandals on over & over all by herself.  She has a major obsession with that lately & the tall boots we have had all winter just don't lend themselves well to a toddler attempting to put them on (although it's great entertainment).

Books are always a favorite & I can't resist adding a couple more to our collection, sunglasses that look like mommy's were the best find (from Gap & hope they make a good alternative, I would really love mine back), & I love these glitter eggs from Target!  I'm thinking of filling those with a few more beaded necklaces & some stickers for my sweet girl.

Sweatshirt & Jeans
 Along with thinking about all the celebrations that will take place around Easter this year, we are obviously planning some fun little outfits for Waverly, too. :)  Easter outfits are one of my absolute favorites & even though I usually try to go a little less traditional, I can't wait to cover Waverly in the sweetest styles for the holiday.  Florals are always a favorite & I am seriously all about the pastels that are on trend right now (along with Waverly's silly poses, I'm all about those, too).
 
 
Though we will definitely go more formal for Easter Sunday, I would totally put Waverly in this outfit for an Easter Egg Hunt or a trip to see the bunny at the mall.  Best of all, she is super comfy for all that running around I know she will be doing. ;) 
I've rounded up some other looks that would work for the less dressy events that your little ones may be attending in the next few weeks!
 
1: Tunic. 2: Skinny Jeans, 3: Chambray Embroidered Dress, 4: Crew Neck Jumper, 5: Chambray Blazer , 6: Textured Joggers
 Boy mamas, I was so excited to give you some love on this one, too!  I can't get enough of a little man in chambray & paired with that pastel, you would have one stylin' little dude.  These options are everywhere right now, it is such a fun time for fashion for both little ladies & gents, too!
 
We hope you all had the best weekend!  After a 24-hour hint of spring, we spent the rest of our time inside hiding from the rain with a couple shopping trips & a genuine attempt at watching Frozen on our living room floor.  For the record, this lasted about 30 seconds, we didn't make it past the credits.
 
 
Happy Monday & best wishes for a wonderful week!
XOXO

  2. Those glitter eggs are calling my name! I didn't see them at my Target or they would already be mine. They had something similar for Halloween that I couldn't get enough of. And, her little poses are the cutest! Such a shame Frozen only lasted 30 seconds - Aria didn't pay it much attention but she did stop over by the TV a couple times to stare at it for a little bit during her running around like a mad woman morning.

  9. Putting stickers in the eggs is such a good idea; I will have to do that! And I too am loving chambray & pastels for the boys. I'm thinking Liam could use some mint pants and possibly a pastel bow tie...
