Flowers for Easter

No signs of life and no flowers anywhere. The calendar says SPRING but the weather is not cooperating! It’s cold and windy with patches of snow. I wouldn’t be surprised if we have another snowfall in April, after all, this is Canada.

However, I’m wearing a floral print dress for Easter this year. Not a traditional pastel outfit; it’s bold and vibrant. Black is a dramatic background for these bright red roses. My newly thrifted coat is perfect for spring.

My favourite vegan purse with fringes bought at DRIZZLE and SHINE, my daughter’s eco boutique made by Jeane and Jax.

Table is set for a delicious vegan Easter sunrise breakfast. Veggie rolls

We’ll be having vegan pierogis for lunch.

Let’s be kind to bunnies and our animal friends, please don’t buy cosmetics that are tested on animals.

Thank you!!

Wishing you a blessed Easter!

Hallelujah!

I thank God for His amazing love and mercy!

      We enjoyed a lovely Easter with our family, thank you Terri! We had a raging storm today with snow! The winds were howling and our oldest son had a tree fall in his back yard, however, we are thankful that it crashed on their garden shed, not on their house.

  3. Beautiful dress! With the cold this year, black is definitely more appropriate. And it really pairs well with red roses! 🌹

    Your dress is beautiful, Carmen! Although it is not one of those delicate spring and summer dresses that you wear, it has a powerful and beautiful print. The large flowers and color make it a very elegant element. In addition, with your stockings, your shoes and your coat you configure a really beautiful and attractive outfit. I love the simplicity of the design and all the combination of elements of the outfit, all perfectly combined. I love your hairstyle, with those delicate waves in your beautiful hair. I have signed the petition.

      Thank you so much Josep-Maria! When I saw this dress it reminded me of a dress my mom had, but hers had a black background with only red roses as I remember. I do not have a photo of her wearing it or I would have included it in my post. I’m glad you like my hair, once in a while I use a curling iron to give it some waves. 🙂

      Thank you kindly for signing the petition! 🙂

      Thank you kindly! My mom was my role model, an elegant lady with style and class! This dress actually reminded me of a dress she had: black with red roses. 🌹🌹🌹

    Christ is Risen indeed!! The red roses remind me of His blood shed on the cross.

    It’s the same way here, Carmen. Although there isn’t snow on the ground right now, it will be coming again soon. And it’s a little chillier than I wished it was. But it’s also an early Easter, so that’s part of it too!!!
    Love the floral and that coat is fabulous!!
    XOXO

      Thank you Jodie! I’ve never seen April in Ontario without snow at some point. However, I’m staying positive that May will be without snow. 😉

      Easter blessings!

    Looks perfect with the great red coat. Such a lovely dress. Only that snow is in the way. Well they say on Tuesday it will be 19 degrees here in Germany and I didn’t pack a t shirt. 😉😉😉
