Easter is always a fun time to dress up, reflect on Christ's sacrifice and eat. This Easter was special for many reasons that I will keep a secret for now ;) Spending time with my family was very important and all I wanted to do all weekend.
We went to Church on Sabbath... late. EKKK. In the evening we enjoyed the Wind and String Recital in my church where we celebrated its 25th year. I have pretty much been playing in the recital for 20 of those years. Ha! I am getting old... I think.
On Sunday, we headed to my Aunt's home for Easter dinner. My In-laws, Aunts, Uncles, cousins, second-ncousins and church family were there. It was so much fun. The wide array of food, stories and jokes really reminded me of the importance of family.
During our dinner my Auntie C showed me a picture of my Great-Uncle Cyril who is 92 years old. She recently visited Trinidad and spent some time with him. Sadly he passed away the next day. It was a powerful moment that revealed that you can be here today and gone tomorrow. RIP Uncle Cyril. Thank you for being a fun uncle who put with my snakes and ladder tournaments.
Back to FASHION! For Easter 2016, I wanted to focus on colour and my curly natural hair.
For Easter church Service, I paired my Queta Accessories Clutch with an Ankara two piece skirt set that I made. I wore purple Louboutin So Kate pumps, a vintage pin and a fur stole.
For Easter dinner, my floral dress was paired with Charlotte Olympia Dolly pumps, a clutch from Queta Accessories,Hermes Scarf, Hermes Enamel Bracelet. I threw on my Max Mara coat, Hudson Bay Pink leather gloves and Dior shades as it was both cold but bright.
In my hair, I used my favorite product Aunt Jackie's Curls & Coils Curl La La Defining Curl Custard. This is my staple product and I usually need to get a new bottle every two months.
When my hair is wet I run it through my hair and just like that my hair is LIT! I am not joking it is that simple. Oh! I use some oil to get the shine.
My Easter meal was yummy, my outfits popping', my #naturalhairdoescare and I loved spending time with my family.
Hope you enjoyed your Easter Holiday.
