Looking snappy for Easter

March 23, 2016


Retro ladies at EasterThey’re no relation to me, but I love their hats and gloves! Easter is such a joyful day, it’s a day to bring out your best, whether that means something already in your closet or if you’re lucky, a new frock.


A lovely outfit for Easter.This is a beautiful outfit that would be perfect for Easter, except that here in Fairhope, we are being told there’s a 70% chance of rain! Oh no! There go all the Easter bonnets! These shoes would have to be replaced with chunky rain boots. Boo!


New Orleans Easter Parade

Here’s an image from the New Orleans Easter Parade a few years ago. That’s one parade in New Orleans I’d love to see. Just a bit more tame than Mardi Gras, I imagine.


Easter girlsThese girls look just like the teenagers at my church when I was a little girl. They would always dress so nicely and I thought they were supermodels who would occasionally babysit me.


Easter BarbieOf course, Barbie rocks Easter. That girl has it all together. She’s a stewardess and veterinarian, and also drives a corvette.

Sporty Easter HatThis is more my style of a sharp looking hat. Just adorable. And speaking of adorable . . .


Easter hat for little girl. Just Adorable!Ooohh! Most of the little girls around here sport big bows in their hair instead of hats, but you have to admit, this is pretty cute.


basketHere’s my recipe for Easter Bunny Snacks from last year. (HERE). Hope you have your Easter outfit ready to go and your day of celebration is rain-free!


Let Not Your Heart Be Troubled

Let not your heart be troubled
Let not your soul be sad
Easter is a time of joy
When all hearts should be glad
Glad to know that Jesus Christ
Made it possible for men
To have their sins forgiven
And, like Him, to love again
So at this joyous season
May the wondrous Easter Story
Renew our faith so we may be
Partakers of His glory

  • Love Easter Barbie! Rain rain stay away! Happy Easter Leslie Anne-

    • Leslie Anne says:

      Thanks Jenna. Around here, who knows what to expect with the weather!

  • I love hats! I could see you in that one you like, for sure. I used to make and wear (oh the shame) hats like the last one, the littlest girl, is wearing when I was a bartender at a place in Atlanta years ago. We were required to wear hats and look like Southern Belles. I used to sell my hats to the customers for their dates/wives/girlfriends when they had imbibed a lot, and I always wondered if anyone ever wore them. I kept a supply of those “bridesmaids hats” as they were called, and a stash of flowers and ribbon so that I could quickly whip up another the next day when I had sold that hat off my head!

    • Leslie Anne says:

      You are not only creative, but savvy as well. I should have had you whip one of your specialties up for me for this Easter!

  • Lovely photos and I noted that Barbie is not only wearing pearls but has a bouquet of pearls! Happy Easter to you and I hope it doesn’t rain on your pretty bonnet.

    • Leslie Anne says:

      I’m telling you, that chic is awesome. She also has her own camper.

  • Perfect reminder of Easters past and the joy of our own present Easter.

      Thanks Patsy. Happy Easter to you!
