mother's day

[easy-image-collage id=506] Happy Mother's Day to all you amazing moms!!

I was thinking about the perfect Mother's Day outfit as I was looking through my blog photos, and I realized that.... she probably would hate all of my outfits :D :D

All jokes aside though, I think my love of fashion comes from my mom dressing me in the cutest stuff when I was a kid, and later buying me whatever I want at the store (seriously, love her).

I think she would love this ballerina dress from Thayer. It is a perfect combination of girly and cute but also classy and not too childish. Also, my bra straps don't show, she would love that.

She probably would hate how much money I spent on it though ;)

I am sad to say that, unfortunately, I'll never get to show this off to her, as she passed away almost six years ago -- although I think she will still see it :)

I think it will make her happy to know that I am choosing dresses that she would like, that's why to me it's the perfect Mother's Day dress.

I couldn't find this exact dress anymore (and also, for some reason, Thayer is now only making swim accessories?)

I found this Ballerina inspired dress, from Alice and Olivia and it's on sale!

A lot of this type of dresses are for kids, so it was hard finding one that is just right, but this one is great! It's black, so you could get a lot of wears out of it, not just on Mother's Day.

Another favorite is this Free People dress. It's so rustic and girly, with a tulle lace skirt. I think my mom would love this one too.

 

My shoes are Tibi lace up sandals. I love these! If only you could see what I went through to replace the heel tips on them! I think it took two hours..all to avoid leaving my babies at the cobbler.

Lace up sandals are so in right now, check out these Stuart Weitzman ones. These sandals also look like the trendiest shoes around, and the price is VERY friendly :)

For jewelry I chose some big earrings, simple bracelets and a plain gold ring. Check out these awesome creations from Alexis Bittar, or these earrings that can be customized to have any initials written inside -- could also double as a Mother's Day gift. I also love these Rebecca Minkoff earrings, they put a new spin on the ole hoop!

I love the quartz bracelet, the pink stone is a perfect match to the color of the dress. My inspiration was this quartz Ippolita bracelet. The rose gold bracelet is House of Harlow, you can find a similar one here, and here.

This is my gold ring, some similar ones can be found here, or here.

And you're all set!

Happy Mother's Day! Love,
