Say hello to my adorable mom! With Mother’s Day less than three weeks away (May 14!), I thought it would be fun to feature her on the blog and collaborate to share some of our favorite gift ideas for the most important women in our lives. My mom is one of the most hard-working and fun-loving people you’ll ever meet and has always had a strong influence on my style. I can’t tell you how happy it makes me to be living just 15 minutes apart so we can get together for a workout class, dinner date, or dog park excursion multiple times a week. I think we can all agree moms are just the best. 🙂

In this post we both styled our favorite tops and sandals for spring. I inherited my love for all things navy from my mom so naturally I adore this bell sleeve poplin top on her! I recently gave her these Tory Burch Miller sandals for her birthday (which she celebrated at a trampoline park… naturally) and they’re so cute I’m coveting a pair for myself. I wouldn’t be surprised if they make an appearance or two during our wedding weekend — they’re super comfortable but definitely pretty enough for her to wear with a dress for our welcome party or the bridesmaids’ luncheon. And we weren’t planning on having our family’s cockapoo Coach in all the photos but after a few photo bombs we just couldn’t resist… Added to the fact that my dad took these pictures, this post was a true family affair!

If you’re looking for a Mother’s Day gift for your mama, I highly recommend a pair of Jack Rogers or Tory Burch sandals, especially as we finally have some warm weather on the east coast. And this initial necklace is a perfect gift for just about any occasion… and it’s under $60. And if you’re truly stumped, my mom says you can never go wrong with a Diptyque Baies scented oval or Jo Malone orange blossom candle. All of these are available at Nordstrom (free shipping + free returns!) where you’ll also find a dedicated Mother’s Day gift shop to make your shopping even easier. Happy (early) Mother’s Day! xoxo

On me:

J.Crew off the shoulder stripe top  //  BaubleBar pearl drop earrings  //  J.Brand jeans  //  Jack Rogers sandals
