A Bountiful Bouquet

This floral "Grace" skirt from Boden was what I ended up wearing for our family's Easter celebration. Truth be told, I spent most of Easter in my pajamas watching a Mad Men marathon on AMC and drinking Mimosas. I love Mimosas because they, along with Bloody Marys, provide a socially acceptable way to drink in the morning. (Hey, At least it wasn't Canadian Club Whiskey, although that would have been more appropriate given Don Draper's drinking habits.)

Anyway, getting back to my skirt, I thought its soft lilac hue, not to mention vivid blossoms and birds, made it perfect for the occasion. I really, really wanted something in this print, but the skirt sold out quickly in my size, so I opted for a tall size, which was all they had left. I believe the tall size in Boden adds an extra inch or so and if you are tall like myself it's really no big deal. Luckily, it was a big hit with the family, and they are not always easy to please, hence the mimosas in the morning!
