So, a little bit of a late post but as the saying goes "better late than never", right? And before you can even give me a lesson on procrastination I'm just going to begin the post...
Mother’s Day is such a beautiful holiday because it means I get to celebrate all things fabulous about my own Mom. She’s smart, elegant, strong, sophisticated, calm, hard working, cultured and funny…she is an absolutely amazing woman and I couldn’t have asked for a better person as a role model growing up and now.
To celebrate Mother's Day, we enjoyed a lovely brunch out at the chic BLT Restaurant in the Betsey Hotel on Ocean Drive.
I wanted to wear something polished and classy for the occasion so I opted for the following:
Zara Woman Mint Tweed Dress (we wrote about “Chanel” inspired looks and pastels here on Packing Stylist…and I thought this dress did a beautiful job of incorporating both those trends with some originality…love the metal spiked buttons down the dress)
Marc Jacobs Patent Pumps (because I didn’t have time to get a mani/pedi before this event, I wanted to keep my green nail polish to a visual minimum…so I chose closed toed pumps which worked out well because the day was slightly rainy and of course, they kept my toes from clashing with my outfit too much)
Christian Dior Tan Canvas Tote (I have had this bag for a long time. It’s got a kind of cargo feel to it, but the neutral color makes it a great choice for many occasions)
Mikimoto Pearl bracelet and earrings (I very seldom rare my pearls but when I do, I am reminded of how effortlessly beautiful and classy they are. It’s such a simple and elegant touch.)
We had a fabulous day brunching, laughing, shopping and enjoying the day. I am always grateful to have such a wonderful family and to have the honor of having such a loving Mother. Whether you celebrate Mother’s Day or not(I believe in some European countries it is not celebrated)…it is important to take the time to thank and appreciate the women in our lives (Mother, aunt, sister, friend, etc.) that have helped us become the women we are now. So, remember that appreciating and expressing your love to these amazing women is definitely true Bellas Fashion.
Till next time…
