Springtime and Mother's Day

avintagenerd

This year mark's my 6th year being a mom. Being a mother is something I always felt strongly about becoming. And now everyday I get to live it. Trust me, I still look at them in awe and think, "wow, this all happened?" And happened it did. That's why I believe in creating dreams and I know that dreams come true....because of them.

Luckily for us here in the States, Mother's Day comes in the springtime. With the spring we see trees at their greenest, flowers blooming everywhere, and even weeds on some lawns growing happily. Spring brings in a refreshing air to our daily lives. We leave behind our coats (finally!), put away the snow shovels, and open the windows of our homes to let in some breezy fresh air.

I couldn't wait to wear this outfit for Mother's Day! 

I wore an eShakti skirt I haven't worn before, it is the black version of this skirt HERE. I have said it before but I will say it again, I love that eShakti's skirts and dresses have pockets! LOVE it! I paired it up with a sleeveless white peter pan collared top from Boden which you can find HERE on sale and a cardigan from Anthropologie which I actually scored on Ebay brand new and half the price then it was online. I don't normally wear green but it is quickly becoming one of my favorite colors, especially the shade that my cardigan is.

This eShakti skirt comes with a fabric belt that is very nice but I wanted to add some pazazz to my outfit so I used the sash samba belt in black found in Modcloth. Its so cute because you can tie the ends into a little bow like I did. 

The final accessories were a pair of green stud earrings and a handmade brooch purchased via Etsy and my stachel is from the Leather Satchel Company. It is made in the UK and I cannot say how fantastic this stachel is! I have been wanting one for a while and it is everything I thought it would be. I used it on this day to carry an emergency pull up for the little one and some makeup to powder my nose. Everything a mama needs on Mother's Day!

It was such a beautiful weekend for Mother's Day. I typically go out the day before so we can avoid the large crowds, bad traffic, and busy restaurants. We ate lunch at Ihop, which I ordered breakfast because I just love breakfast. Then we headed out to a few shops which included Barnes and Noble and mama scoring a tall white chocolate mocha.


I don't need a lot to make me happy and just being together, the five of us was what made my day so special.

  1. These pictures are just so fabulous, . How wonderful to find such lovely blossom trees and I really love the picture of you with your children. A very smart idea to plan Mother's Day the day before. I waited to long to book a reservation and basically gave up trying to find a nice place. I told my husband the Jazz Lawn Party will be my present:)) Lovely D! So fun to see these images.
