NYC Easter Look

I remember as a little girl going Easter dress shopping with my mom and sisters. I looked forward to it every year! We were always on the lookout for the best sales at department stores like Belk and JCPenney, and of course we had to end our shopping spree at PayLess to find the perfect new white Sunday shoes. :) I would almost always end up wearing some kind of pastel floral dress or skirt, a massive white straw hat, and white sandals. This was the unofficial Easter Sunday standard in South Carolina at the time, and I loved it! However, when choosing what to wear to church in NYC for Easter Sunday, my outfit looks a bit different. 

The weather in NYC has been so unpredictable lately. I guess that is pretty typical for Spring. I thought I would freeze if I tired to wear a sleeveless dress this year, so instead decided to wear a long light-weight sweater and my leather jacket. These white cropped jeans are the ones I got on sale when Zach and I went to Cold Spring! They were originally $164, but I paid only $20!! I know I will be wearing them a lot this Spring and Summer! I love the way they fit, and the roll-cuff is super cute too. I'm also wearing one of my favorite wide-brim fedora hats, some ankle boots, and carrying my calf-hair handbag. 

I am so excited for church tomorrow at HillsongNYC! Easter is one of my favorite Sundays, and is such a great reminder for why I believe what I believe. 

What are you wearing this Easter? Let me know if the comments below!

"So, what do you think? With God on our side like this, how can we lose? If God didn’t hesitate to put everything on the line for us, embracing our condition and exposing himself to the worst by sending his own Son, is there anything else he wouldn’t gladly and freely do for us? And who would dare tangle with God by messing with one of God’s chosen? Who would dare even to point a finger? The One who died for us—who was raised to life for us!—is in the presence of God at this very moment sticking up for us. Do you think anyone is going to be able to drive a wedge between us and Christ’s love for us? There is no way! Not trouble, not hard times, not hatred, not hunger, not homelessness, not bullying threats, not backstabbing, not even the worst sins listed in Scripture:

They kill us in cold blood because they hate you.
We’re sitting ducks; they pick us off one by one.

None of this fazes us because Jesus loves us. I’m absolutely convinced that nothing—nothing living or dead, angelic or demonic, today or tomorrow, high or low, thinkable or unthinkable—absolutely nothing can get between us and God’s love because of the way that Jesus our Master has embraced us."

~Romans 8: 31-39 MSG
