Easter is around the corner!  Eggs, candy and coloring books will decorate my kids baskets!  And for my oldest daughter, Hartstrings.com will make her shine in pink on this wonderful, fun day!

Hartstrings.com is an online carrier of beautiful children’s clothing and accessories for all kinds of special occasions and for everyday wear.  And with their newly designed website that is  incredibly easy to use, I got to focus on purchasing the dress and accessoriesand not on where I should be on the site!  One click took me where I wanted to go.

I, personally, searched the amazing selection under the Hartstrings Girls tab and the kcparker tab – since I am busting at the pink here – but they also carry boys and baby clothing and accessories as well.  Just hover over the Kitestrings tab and Baby for your infant boys and girls.  I had a great time planning places to take my kids so they could wear certain outfits just so I could buy them!

And then I landed on a dress that brought a picture to my mind and I had to have it for my oldest daughter.  Years ago I saw a photo of my mom right after having my oldest sister.  She was in true 60’s fashion in the high bun hair and she had on this beautiful navy blue dress that was a sort of a simple shell, straight line dress.  It had a high white sash waist and came right above her knees.  And it stuck in my mind because when I saw her in that photo she was so radiant, so joyous, so full of light with her new daughter that it was clearly conveyed in a 40 year old photograph.

So when I saw the same styled dress on Hartstrings.com – the simple shell, straight lined, high sash waist – I had to have it for Katie.  Even though it is pink and not blue.  Especially since she is named after my mother.

I chose my size and put it in my cart that was already collecting hair bows form all three of my daughters!  They are just so pretty that you can’t leave them behind!  Well, unless you have boys.  But did you see the little Kitestring sweater vests?

 I received my order and tore it open and pulled out the beautiful Pink Knit Dress and the precious bows that I got for each of my daughters!  It was all I could do not to drive to school, take Katie out of class, and make her put on the dress just so I could see how beautiful she would look in it!

The dress did not fail when I did put it on her!  Simply cut and made of strong, high quality fabric, she did shine!  She was radiant, full of joy and the light that she carries everyday certainly shined through!  Just like I imagined in that photo of her namesake!
