May has to be my absolute favorite month of the year. Not only is it my birthday month, but it also marks the beginning of the summer season for most (even though summer doesn’t technically start until June). This season, my friends and I are planning on marking a few places we’ve always wanted to visit off of our bucket list. There are also a few fun trips coming up for the blog (stay tuned!) so all of this travel planning gets me in the mood for vacation inspired outfits. Breezy dresses, lace, strappy sandals, and easy glowing makeup.
When it comes to gifting, no one deserves better than my sweet mom. She’s as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside. She’s my best friend, my cheerleader, my motivator, and has taught me to never make exceptions when it comes to pursuing your dreams. Of course, I couldn’t write this blog post without mentioning my dad as well. This Mother’s Day is a special one because my parents are also celebrating 30 years of marriage. They make the perfect team and together have taught me the meaning of acceptance, understanding, and love.
My mom’s personal taste is simple: classic, staple pieces she can use again and again. So, she’s pretty simple to shop for! She likes to switch up her scent every so often, and I know this Chloé perfume would make the perfect addition to her vanity. It’s a romantic, clean scent that’s not overwhelming. I’ve worn it for years and it’s one of my all time favorites! This linen blend cardigan comes in regular and petite sizing, nine different colors, and it’s actually on sale! My mom has a huge passion for cooking, and she loves Chrissy Teigen, so I know her new cookbook will be such a hit!
