Easter Dress Round Up

I am always asked by friends, family (and even strangers on IG) where to buy cute, stylish girl clothes. I'm always so happy to recommend my favorite places and figured it was high time that I just share a round up of some dresses from my favorite small shops and big box stores for some Easter dress inspiration! As you can tell, we are huge fans of all things pink, twirly, ruffly and sweet over here!

*Many of these dresses come from small shops that have limited inventories. I highly recommend following these shops on Instagram and signing up for their newsletters so that you are in the know when they release new collections and restock.

Easter Basket Gift Guide- Little Girls

Ahhh Easter...It's such a special time of year! Christ is risen, Winter is over and is right around the time of my birthday!

Growing up, one of my highlights at Easter was hunting for our Easter baskets. Right up there with dying eggs, wearing a new dress and Easter Vigil mass! My dad would hide our baskets in the craziest places ( one year it was inside the shop vacuum!) and it was always fun to see what he'd think of next. And oh my gosh, are Easter baskets were always so good. My mom is the queen of coming up with the best stuff for both Easter baskets and Stocking Stuffers. 

Getting to play the role of Easter Bunny is just the cherry on top of being a parent in my opinion! Creating this gift guide was so much fun and I hope you find an idea or two!

The Pink Umbrella- One of our favorite books ever! So Springy and the illustrations are classic and sweet. And as Sophie would say "It's sooooo romantic!"

Easter Sticker Book
Calico Critter Bunny Family- An Easter basket isn't complete without some kind of bunny to play with! These fuzzy bunnies are so adorable, Eloise can't get enough of them!
Pastel striped Jacket
Peeps Bubble Bath
Yoobi Chalk- definitely an Easter basket staple, along with bubbles of course.
Watering Can
Ruffle Swimmer- April in Alberta is still a long way from bathing suit season but those beach days will be here before we know it!
Ice cream night light
Easter Basket
Bunny floral crown-
Rabbit bonnet- I apologize for any obsession this bonnet induces. Native Fable has the cutest bonnets.  We're talking heirloom quality here!
Bunny Sandals- I can't resist clothing with bunnies on them! Sophie had these last Summer and we got so many compliments on them.

Bug Bungalow- Anyone else have these growing up? I think both girls are going to love being able to check out bugs through a magnifying glass!
Bows- Eloise is the queen of bows and is obsessed with Dear Freya bows. Definitely our favorite small shop, for sure! Just look at how pretty these colors are!

Easter Basket Gift Guide- Baby Boys

I was under the impression that shopping for boys would be boring, but surprisingly, I've found so many goodies for my little man! I'm so excited for him to get into all the Easter and Spring festivities now that he's walking and so curious. I'm just imagining him hunting for eggs, holding a little basket and waddling around, probably dressed as a bunny in some way or another...eeek it's going to be adorable! 

Chambray Ball cap- If there's one thing I love, it's when my guys ( Donald and Theo, ha!) wear ball caps. It's just such a good look!
Bunny Jammies- I'm a sucker for anything with a bunny on it, no joke!
That's not my lamb- Theo loves this book! We usually re-read it over and over in one sitting. I love when babies find something they love.
Bunny Cardigan- I am officially in love with this sweater! The little bunny ears, the classic fit...ugh why are kids dressed as critters so. dang. cute?!
Hooded onesie- I love this little onesie and it makes me so excited for Summer...whenever it finally decides to show up...
Hunter boots- I might have to give Theo his hunter boots before Easter. He is already obsessed with splashing in puddles and his poor wool booties have had enough of his shenanigans!
Farm Tractor- Farm toys are the best! My kids go crazy over tractors and farm animals.
Rabbit bonnet- This is from my favorite small shop! And they are sooo soft!
Peter Rabbit Touch and Feel Playbook- Another Theo approved book! He packs this one around with him all the time! And what is an Easter basket without anything Peter Rabbit?!
Bubble Machine- The ultimate in hands-free, mess-free bubbles! Theo is obsessed with bubbles so I have a feeling this machine is going to have a busy Spring/Summer!
