First of all, how is it already May? This year has seemed to fly by, but the spring and summer are definitely exciting times for me! I love finding any reason to celebrate, even the little things, but, to me Mother’s Day is something huge to celebrate! I am so grateful to have been blessed with an amazing woman that I can call my Mom and best friend! She is always there for me and I am glad that we get to take a day to celebrate all of her hard work for (almost) 25 years…. I know it couldn’t have been easy raising my brother and I, but I think we turned out pretty well! 😛 Thank you, Mom, for all of the nights listening to me go on about whatever was on my mind that day, for being a great shopping buddy who always gives me an honest opinion and for most of all, showing me what how to love! I hope one day to be half the Mom you are to me!!
To celebrate my wonderful Mom, we have decided to take her to brunch at a fabulous spot in Houston (shh…don’t tell her, I don’t want to ruin the surprise)! For brunch, I want to keep it understated and keep the focus on my Mom, so I decided to wear this fun and super comfortable dress from Anthropologie (which she actually got for me a couple of weeks ago, thanks Mom!). I think this dress will be one of my go-to’s this summer – it is a good weight, made of cotton and has pockets! I’ve pair it with some simple jewelry and my favorite (and short….read: comfortable) strappy wedges from Sam Edelman. To complete the look, I added my Rebecca Minkoff quilted bag in silver which I got on major sale (yea! party dance….) from Nordstrom Rack about a year ago.
To all of the Mom’s out there….Happy Mother’s Day!! I hope you have a love-filled day with your children and all those who consider you a maternal figure in their life!
