Happy Mother’s Day!

May 11, 2014

Hello, friends, and Happy Mother’s Day to all the mamas out there!  I have a very special post for today that I am very excited to share with you, it is a Style Profile on the most stylish lady I know, my mom, Nancy!


My mom always has been, and always will be, such an inspiration to me.  She is hard-working, dedicated, passionate, always willing to try new things, and always, always well-dressed.  She has taught me more things over the years than I can count; but, I will forever cherish the memories of spending evenings and weekends shopping at all our favorite stores and learning as much as I could about shoes, clothes, accessories and life.


*Love that last photo – we were being super cool models a la America’s Next Top Model!  ;)

You may have noticed a few cameo appearances from my mom on my blog before, but over the past few weeks, I have been snapping photos of my mom and her cute, everyday outfits.  Nancy is a high school assistant principal and has to dress very professionally for work, so most of these sample ensembles are the types of outfits she wears on a typical weekday.


Nancy loves reading fashion magazines (InStyle is her favorite) to keep up with trends and get inspiration for new ways to mix and match her own wardrobe.  With a closet full-to-bursting, I think it’s fair to call my mom a fashionista, especially as she is always getting compliments on her style.  In fact, my sisters, myself and even my friends are always asking my mom for fashion advice and if we an borrow this or that accessory.  Lucky for us, she is always happy to oblige!


Happy Mother’s Day, Mom, I love you!

Do you have a stylish mom (or aunt or grandma) that you’d like to give a shout out to??  As always, thanks for reading, and go wish all the moms you know a Happy Mother’s Day!

    We have said it before and saying it now… your mom has some serious style! We are big fans :) And what strikes us the most is that how different she appears in each of her looks, it could be any mood – from working out or going for a casual lunch or a formal one…. your mom rocks each look!

    Happy Mother’s Day :)

      Thank you, thank you!! My mom has definitely worked to diversify her wardrobe and find pieces that are versatile for work and play. Of course, she has quite a few more years on me, but I like to think that I am catching up in the “fashion game!” ;)

      Thanks again, my mom is touched by your sweet comment!! :)
