Happy Friday, ladies! Can you believe Easter weekend is here?! This holiday has to be one of my favorites. So many memories of my childhood are centered on Easter.
Like clockwork, a week or two before Easter Sunday my mother and I would go on a shopping spree to buy a new dress, hat, patent leather Mary Jane’s, handbag, and gloves. Remember when hats were a requirement for ladies to attend church?
Although there were quite a few fashion statements made with wide brims, bold colors or even feathers wearing a hat to church was a symbol of reverence and respect. I miss the good old days!
But rest assured I still venture out to buy a new dress just for Easter. And I still love Easter brunch with a spiral honey ham as the main attraction and hot cross buns.
This year I’m only responsible for a side dish so I couldn’t resist making easy deviled eggs for Easter that will disappear into thin air in a matter of minutes! A simple yet refreshing cocktail is on the menu too. One that will give a Mimosa a run for its money---an Aperol Spritz. Oscar has stopped by to say hello so without further ado let’s get this weekend started!
Today's featured item is a shirtdress from Talbots

And of course, we've got Aperol and easy deviled eggs for Easter recipes
For the past three years, I’ve purchased a shirtdress from Talbots and I have to admit this year was no exception. I’m loving the simplicity of this year's dress with its classic black and white color scheme.
No frills, no drama but this dress will serve me well all through spring and summer. Add a straw belt, and patent leather sandals, and I am ready for Easter Sunday.
An Aperol Spritz favored by the Italians is as easy to make as it is to drink. 3 ounces Prosecco, 2 ounces of Aperol, and 1 ounce of club soda is all you need.
Deviled eggs were a favorite of my dad and Mr. Style. There are lots of different ways to create this tried and true side but my favorite has to be classic deviled eggs with equal parts mayonnaise, dijon mustard, and relish as the only ingredients necessary.
To pipe the whipped egg yolks into the shell I simply grab a sandwich bag, snip one end, and you have an instant pastry bag.
