Rabbits are a shared motif between Easter and lolita and a great theme to incorporate into any coord for the holiday. Bunny ears are an obvious choice, but let's not forget other long-eared options like one of Baby's rabbit-shaped aprons or a plush bag.

Chocolate is a second theme in lolita I can't resist that is shared with Easter. Did you know that chocolate eggs are a product of the Victorian era as well? In 1875, John Cadbury's process of separating the cocoa butter from the bean to create a chocolate easy to melt and mould would result in the the first chocolate Easter egg.
Pairing rich brown hues with frothy pastels is a great way to tie it all together.
Another theme that has undoubted connection with Easter and has been increasingly popular these past few years is Christianity. Although I wouldn't personally feel comfortable wearing a cross on an adopted Christian holiday when I am not Christian myself, associated romantic imagery such as cherubs or painted biblical scenes or stained glass are classic and universal enough to recommend.

What I would really like to see more of that fits the Easter theme is fabergé. Also due to the Victorian era (but in Russia), notable goldsmith Peter Carl Faberge created the art when he was commissioned by the Russian Czar Alexander in 1883 to create a special Easter gift for his wife Empress Marie.

I won't be celebrating Easter until next weekend, but I hope you all are having a great one! In spirit of the holiday I took a few photos of my bunnies this morning.
Have a sugar-sweet day and thanks for reading!
