Easter Egg Chic

Since it's technically Spring already, and the weather has been in the upper 70s the last few days, I thought it appropriate to break out the pastels. This Erin Fetherston ensemble has all the makings of a perfect Easter dress; in other words, it looks like a piece of candy.

Dress: Erin by Erin Fetherston Callie Fit and Flare Dress

This dress runs large, so size down. I'm wearing a size 2, and there is still a good bit of wiggle room at the bust and waist. The arm holes are also large, which made finding a good bra to wear difficult. I feel like I've been adjusting the top all day.

Thankfully, I bought the dress for a steal on, so I'm not overly concerned. You can also find it at Nordstrom Rack, but sizes are very limited.

Sandals: Coach Monica Scalloped Ankle Strap Sandals

My heels are lower than usual today because my calves are still sore from running the Atlanta Women's 5K this past Saturday. It was quite a hilly course! Here I am right before the race with my friend, Katie, and her daughter, Cadence. This is me without a stitch of makeup on: just tinted moisturizer with SPF.

I will probably run this race again. Although the course had a lot of hills (my time was just over 25 minutes, or 8:14/mile), there was so much enthusiasm from all participants. It was all women runners, too, so there were roses, water and mimosas with purple polka-dotted straws at the finish line. It also takes place at a perfect time of year weather wise.

Here are a few funny pics of me running. It scares me how much I look like my father here. (And he is a runner, too!)
