Easter in the 80s {Not-so-wordy Wednesday}

As a little girl in the 80s, getting all fancied-up for Easter was my favorite. I loved the frilly dresses, big bonnets, white gloves, little lace fold-over socks, white patent leather shoes, the whole works.

Easter 1987: My friend who lives across the street, her sister,
my younger cousin, and me. Yeah, we looked pretty silly.
During the church service, I would admire all the ladies in their beautiful clothes and hats. They were always so nice to us little girls, slightly bending down to compliment us on our special Easter attire and making a big deal about how nice we looked. Did your mother do your hair this morning? So pretty!

Apparently, almost thirty years later, little girls still wear frilly dresses, bonnets and gloves on Easter, or at least that’s what the racks of children’s clothing at the department stores tell me.

Being a little girl is so much fun.

Linking up with Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop!


  1. Your smile is exactly the same 20 something years later. Love the huge bow. And the bangs.... so cute! I bet quinn will look just as cute in whatever he wears this year. I think libby will be wearing her winter coat. :(

  2. Love this! I will NOT be dressing up E with a frilly dress and bonnet... but yes, people do ;-)

  3. Aw, that picture is so cute!!

  4. You look WAY happier than me in that little dress. Maybe because my teeny tiny hat didn't fit my larger than average head.
