Easter in Bushwick With The Fam

Hey my loves!
I’ve been MIA for a bit but I have an explanation;) I was preparing for Easter since I had entirely no clue that it  was in March, so I had to prepare. I bought eggs for Xavier to paint, which I have never done before so I panicked because I wanted it to be perfect for him. Also for some reason I attended a few events that week as well, including the Daniel Wellington event which is very unlike me to party during the week.

Last weekend has been one of the best weekends in a long time. It included a lot of food, friends and love ones. On Saturday we drove to Bushwick, it was amazing.The artwork was beautiful and the vibe was so us, very hipster. We parked our car and walked around different neighborhoods and checked out all the cool restaurants etc. We even bought a cake that we brought over a friends house for dessert on Easter Sunday. Later that night we stopped by my dad’s house and he made Escovitch fish for us with sauted onions and peppers. That is pretty much a  tradition for Jamaican families on Easter, along with bun and cheese. We spent the remaining of the night watching movies and enjoying each other’s company.

On Sunday we had Easter dinner at my old boss’s house, it was awesome. I haven’t seen her in years so it was nice to catch up and introduce her to the little one. The food was amazing. They made mac and cheese, coleslaw, pulled pork, collard greens, biscuits…and I ate it all. Unfortunately we did not take any pictures on Easter Sunday, simply because we were having too much fun and did not remember. I did manage to get a picture of Katie who was 10 when I last saw her, she now was celebrating her 25th birthday. I felt old.

Last but not least, can we talk about my coat. I love it!  I adore the color and the black piping. I must say the belt adds to the coat as it cinches the waist, instantly creating a shape. I love that it’s cropped sleeves too. Perfect for spring and Fall. I will certainly pair these with jeans and booties in the fall. Everyone knows I’m a fan of statement coats so I’m too happy I get  to add  these to my collection. Oh and another thing I’m loving about this  coat is that it has pockets. I’m a sucker for pockets. I hope you all had a terrific easter as well.
