CoCo Easter

Easter is one of my FAVORITE holidays! The perfect time to celebrate the nice weather with family and a new Easter bonnet!

I decided to go with a simple faux fur and silk something that had a nice silhouette and wouldn't be too warm. Thankfully, my Milan couturiers were able to accommodate a rush order!

Happy Easter!
