Two Spring Dresses for Easter, Mother’s Day and Showers

This post is kind of controversial because even though on the surface it appears to be about spring dresses, it’s really about headless bunnies.  GASP!

Let me explain.

I ordered this dress to wear to my niece’s baby shower a few weeks ago.  When I saw the cute little bunnies on it, I knew I had to have it.  Her shower theme was Peter Rabbit and it was held at the Dallas Arboretum. The botanical print with bunnies was perfect without being cutesy.

Unfortunately once I started to read reviews, I saw a recurring issue – headless bunnies!  The seams on the dress were cutting off some of the little furry woodlands creatures’ heads.  I decided to take a chance and order it anyway.  Although I have a headless bunny near my right shoulder, overall my animals are mostly intact!

Good thing I took the chance because I LOVE this dress and have gotten so many compliments on it.  I wore it to my niece’s baby shower that weekend and to a girls’ night out event two days later.  It makes the perfect Easter dress so I’ll be wearing it once again this weekend. When mama gets a new dress, she likes to get her money’s worth!  (P.S. Now’s a great time to get this dress, it’s on sale and has an additional 50% off too!)  For reference, it fits pretty true to size, I ordered my normal size.

When I ordered the dress, I also got this culotte jumpsuit as a back up plan in case the headless bunnies were too much to bear.  I ended up keeping it too because it’s super comfortable (feels like PJ’s) and it’s perfect for everything spring – from Easter Sunday to baby and bridal showers to Mother’s Day brunch!  (This jumpsuit is also ON SALE with an additional 50% off!)  For reference, I also ordered this in my regular size.  It runs a little bigger than the dress but not enough to size down.

Here’s hoping that your only headless bunnies are the chocolate ones!

  • Oh, Alison, even with the headless bunnies, it is the cutest dress ever! I love the color and the pattern screams Spring! It reminds me of a dress I have with bunnies that I may need to pull out for this weekend! Ad the jumpsuit is equally fabulous! Both pieces are super flattering as well.

  • Oh my gosh…haha the headless bunnies! You can’t even tell and it’s such a beautiful print!! I am loving the jumpsuit as well…both perfect spring-time event outfits!

    Thanks lady!! Was looking for a good Easter look! Do you have any articles on how you do your hair and makeup?

    This week what makes me feel pretty is my hair if I was it at night. For some reason when I sleep on It damp when I wake up it has tons of body and I love the look!

  • ADA

    Both the dress and culotte jumpsuit are stunning ALISON. I love and want both. I actually own a similar navy floral jumpsuit (linked with your post today) which I adore. Looking great.

    Welcome by and linkup with me tomorrow. Happy Easter babe!

  • I own the exact dress! So funny, i read about the animals too, but I think I have most of mine intact as well. I love the print and green shade, both the dress and jumpsuit look great on you! I’ll wear mine soon on the blog too! 🙂
    Have a great week!

  • Love the dress!!! SO beautiful on you!

  • Jill Liming York

    Did you see the example of this dress in the FB group? Her dress had a dogs head coming out of neckline looking like the dog was emerging from her cleavage.

  • I love the style of that dress. It’s so hard to find a more conservative dress these days (sleeves, longer length, etc.). I also love the jumper. I think it’s the cutest jumper I have ever seen!

  • Ha ha – I wouldn’t have even noticed the headless bunnies! I love the floral print on both of these and you look gorgeous in them!

  • OH my goodness, headless bunnies and all, so darn cute! And the blue floral print is so pretty. I feel like I’m not tall enough to pull off the culottes look.

  • Both look great on you! I think you wear it better than the model! Too bad they only have one size left! Rats! I’m with Sarah…can’t do culottes!

  • I love both, the prints are so pretty! I would never have noticed the headless bunnies!

  • Love both of these! Glad that you kept both because even though they’re both fancy floral prints, they are definitely different and special in their own way. And seriously kudos to you for trying and rocking a culotte jumpsuit! In my head it sounds crazy but it looks amazing on you.
