When it comes to moms, I was blessed with the best.  So, in honor of my beautiful mother, I’m dedicating this article to her.

With sewing being one of mom’s many talents, I give her the credit for instilling in me a sense of fashion.  My favorites were the dozens of church dresses she made for me when I was growing up.  For today’s church lady, one of J McLaughlin’s spring dresses paired with a wicker bag is a great way to show off your Sunday best.  And from Mother’s Day photos to springtime occasions, Anthropologie’s mother-daughter capsule is sure to bring joy!

“Could someone pass the rolls, please?”   In our family, mom is known for her outstanding cooking and her impressive collection of Southern Living cookbooks….just as sacred as the family bible.  Speaking of cooking, Anthropologie has cooked up the cutest selection of aprons….almost makes me want to start cooking again.  If you are looking for a special gift for your mom, their feminine dish and tea towels are a thoughtful gift for any culinary aficionado.

Lake Ouachita in Arkansas is where our family spent our summers.  I especially loved all the cute short sets mom made for me to wear at the lake.  Talbots’s short selection should be a mainstay for your warm-weather wardrobe.  My pick is their timeless Bermuda shorts in colorful solids and fun prints.  And their summer pull-up shorts do double duty…wear them to run errands or as a swimsuit coverup.  

Back in the day, bridge club was a big part of mom’s social life.  From her bridge skills to her entertaining flair, mom hosted bridge club with style.  It’s so easy to look stylish in a pair of classic Talbot’s pants…ideal for any bridge or Mahjong game.  From their pink gingham crops to their green floral pants…I’m loving all the ways to style them.   Though, just between you and me….I think mom’s bridge club was just a little bit about bridge and a whole lot about lifetime friendships.

So, to my mom and all the wonderful role models in my life….I’m sending Happy Mother’s Day wishes and blessings!
