One of the many great things about Easter Sunday has to be the official ‘OK’ to break out the springiest items in your wardrobe! From seersucker to all-out pastels, the style game has officially been changed. I was so excited to break out this gorgeous dress from Ruthie Grace Boutique today for all of the Easter festivities! It has a gorgeous ostrich feather detail around the waist which adds a sassy touch that is still church-appropriate. I paired it with some of my favorite pieces of jewelry I’ve received in my Rocksbox, like this Loren Hope cuff and these Kendra Scott earrings.
Beyond everything that is so fun about celebrating Easter, it’s so important to never forget the reason that it exists in the first place! Before anything else, today represents not only the ultimate sacrifice paid by Jesus to save us from our sins, but Him literally beating death, so that anyone who lives in Him is granted eternal life. (And He really does mean anyone!) How amazing is that?
But the angel answered and said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here; for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. And go quickly and tell His disciples that He is risen from the dead, and indeed He is going before you into Galilee; there you will see Him. Behold, I have told you.”
So they went out quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, and ran to bring His disciples word.
And as they went to tell His disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, “Rejoice!” So they came and held Him by the feet and worshiped Him. Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid. Go and tell My brethren to go to Galilee, and there they will see Me.
He is risen!
