With Mother’s Day around the corner, I wanted to change up my blog post this week and participate in a collaboration with some beautiful mothers of all ages hosted by Sheela Goh.
When I think of how my mother has inspired my fashion decisions I think back to the days when I wanted to rebel and have a style of my own. I have always loved experimenting with new trends, I even had a lime green suit from Rampage in high school that I thought was amazing. I guess I was taking fashion inspiration from Cher and Dion (Clueless movie reference if you didn’t know) and not Jackie O. at the time.
As I have aged and become a mom, my favorite outfits have become more classic and I think this a result of my mother’s influence. Don’t get me wrong, I still love unique fashion accessories and clothing but classics are my go-to. For this fashion post, I picked one of my preferred things to wear – a classic LBD. It’s one of my favorite things to style, in general, you can see another LBD look here and here. This time, I paired it with modern pearl tassel earrings, heels with bows, and a fun huge pearl handbag.
In this celebration of mother’s day, I reflect on the memories I have growing up. My mother didn’t have a 9-5, but as a mom, I realize now that she still had a full-time job raising the 3 of us. She never let us forget the blessings we had in our lives. I remember always helping others. We were continuously at church volunteering, helping the needy, and visiting the elderly. I think the experiences we have had shaped us into the individuals we are today.
I hope I can also be a great mom to my Alybear. Times are different and staying at home at this time in my life doesn’t work into my family’s plan. I plan to teach her the same lessons my mother has taught me but also show her some independence and leadership. Show her that a mom can be present while working and contributing to the family.
I know now that being a mom is not an easy job. I hope that you take some time to thank your mom for the things she has done for you. Below you will find some other great mamas that I am celebrating with this Mother’s Day!
