The Luck of Adventures in Mom’s Closet

“Clothes aren’t going to change the world. The women who wear them will.” -Anne Klein

One may think that as we get older playing dress up goes out the window, you know what I say to that, ” Absolutely Not.” I still continue to play dress up and not just in my closet, but my mom’s.

That’s why in honor of International Women’s Month, I thought it would be fun spending a day playing dress up in my mom’s closet, a woman who I admire, who inspires and continues to influence/shape who I have become in the best ways possible.

Here are some of my favorite outfits from my favorite lady’s closet (Shh, don’t tell her I may have to keep them 🙂 )

My mom hasn’t just influenced my love of fashion, but my passion for life. So I thank her with hugs, kisses and will conintue to go and make her proud because she makes me proud everyday to call her my amazing mother and friend.

Who are some amazing women that have influenced you? Look forward to hearing all about them!

For me, obviously my mom, but my super sister, great friends and my dad who is always beyond supportive to my mom, my sis and myself.

Don’t forget to go out and thank those that have influenced, inspired and helped you !

P.S The only part of these outfits that aren’t my mom’s are the shoes because unfortunately I don’t fit into her’s

 

 

 

Christmas Time is Here with Fabulous Flare and Tradition

IMG_4744-2IMG_4685

Christmas is here and I am smiling from ear to ear. This is my favorite time of year for many reasons. Yes, it is exciting to get gifts and give them, but this is not why I love Christmas. I will keep it short and sweet as to why because let me tell you this topic alone could be months worth of blog posts.

Christmas Time for me is my favorite because it means laughter with family and friends, sitting by the Christmas tree, eating a delicious honey baked ham, A Christmas Story movie will probably always make an apperance, Christmas mass where we all get to rock amazing holiday fashion(the fashions pictured are two of my favorite looks this year !) and yes rocking my new Christmas PJS.

Christmas time is all about tradition and that tradition is spending time with each other and yes we do open gifts, but what I get excited about the most is watching everyone else open their gifts and seeing them get giddy. With my family there seems to always be lots of laughter when we open our stockings and gifts, which creates such a warmth in me 🙂

Christmas time tradition also includes picking up a tree, decorating it with family ornaments, shopping together, wrapping presents, baking yummy cookies, putting up lights with my dad and in recent years, I have been going to Pinterest for a couple new DIY decorations for each new Christmas time season.

My accessories for the holidays always include this heart sparkle ring from my mom. It is sentimental and an added bonus it sparkles. This amazing bracelet was gifted to me by Pura Vida, which is fun and festive. Also makes for an amazing gift 🙂

I will end this year’s Christmas time post with why Christmas time for me is extra exciting. The reason is because it is my Amazing mother’s birthday the very same day we celebrate Christmas ! We celebrate it by going to a fun movie, opening bday gifts and fullfilling my mom’s sweet tooth with a birthday cake.

With Jingle Bells playing, trees shining with tinsel and cookies being eaten, what do you love most about the holiday season ?
