Hippity Hoppity, Easter’s On Its Way!

Here comes Peter Cottontail
Hoppin’ down the bunny trail
Hippity hoppin’, Easter’s on its way

He’s got jelly beans for Tommy
Colored eggs for sister Sue
There’s an orchid for your mommy
And an Easter bonnet too

In an Era Devoid of Easter Bonnets

Hello Minxes! Easter IS almost upon us. Does everyone have their Easter bonnet properly frilled and fitted? No? Alas how fashion changes and changes until Easter bonnets are just the stuff of a Irving Berlin tune.

If we are to be the finest lady in the Easter parade what are we contemporary Minxs to do when it comes to Easter attire?

Chelsea Crew Elyse Sandals

The Country Bunny And The Little Gold Shoes, the brilliant 1930’s feminist picture book by Du Bose Heyward, is the story of a young single mother bunny who manages to secure herself a spot as one of the 5 Easter Bunnies. To get the job you must be kind, swift and wise. Even though our heroine is super speedy from chasing after her 21 babies she ends up needing a little help form a pair of magic golden shoes that allow her to jump mountains in a few hops.

My point Minxes is this: if not bonnets then an outfit that imbues us with marvelous amounts of stealth and speed. If one can move well and efficiently then one can spread twice the kindness and wisdom to the world. Speed is also helpful in aggressive Easter egg hunts!

Golden Shoes Or Golden Jewelry: Either Way Keep It Golden

If you have golden shoes for Easter we say wear them! But, if not then champion The Country Bunny with golden jewelry!

New Sporty Trend for Spring

We chose this look with a nod towards the sporty trend that is popping up this spring. Light clothes that move with you. Clothes that are easy to throw in an overnight bag, but that keep a laid back sophistication regardless of the situation.

This pastel top is simple and refreshing. It is the perfect complement to these fabulous trousers straight out of a jungle paradise.

Sporty Heels in Bold Tropical Colors

Wide ankle straps are everywhere this spring. With a chunkier heel and a bold color, this heel fits firmly into the sporty trend. This is a heel, but one with an attitude and stamina for adventure. Most Minxes, regardless of their heaps of kindness and wisdom, are not chasing 21 babies or delivering Easter treats to children all over the world. So, what will you chase or gift in these swift heels?

Whatever you choose, we recommend popping by YouTube first and watching Judy Garland and Fred Astaire sing Easter Parade!
