Mother's Day: New York, New York

5/06/2016

Are you muses ready for Mother's Day? It's just two days away. My mother is an inspiring woman, and even though I won't be celebrating this Mother's Day with her (considering we live on the opposite sides of the country), I do hope that you all are able to spend this special day with your moms.

Growing up, my mom gave me a lot of style inspiration. I remember always playing around with her shoes and thinking that some day I would take a few of them out for a spin. The funny thing is, my mom and I share the same shoe size, so it's very easy for us to be shoe twins. But now, she's the one who is coming into my closet and taking my shoes! Seriously -- I just gave her a pair of flats that I used to own last month.

This New York & Company look is a style that I would totally wear to a Mother's Day brunch to celebrate moms on May 8. The intricately pleated ruffle detail on this empire blouse is totally something that any mom would love, especially because it comes in a cherry blossom pink, a Greenwich garden green and a paper white. And it's perfectly paired with the striped studio shorts that create a sophisticated sense of contrast (and 90% cotton)! They also come in yellow!

My flats are the icing on the cake that top off this Mother's Day inspired look. Definitely a pair my mom would want to get her feet in, but I'm not ready to part with them just yet.

Check out all the fab Mother's Day looks from New York & Company with The City collection! There's a Jardin maxi dress in the collection that I think all moms and daughters will love!

  5. Moms are seriously the best. Unfortunately I won't be spending mother's day with mine because she's in Cali and I'm in AZ but she knows I love her which is all that really matters! My mom is also not the biggest gift person, she prefers to spend time together & chat, then me buy her flowers! I'm the complete opposite haha. GIMME THE GIFTS! xx adaatude.com
