5 Style Components In 5 Minutes: Mother’s Day

Over the next few weeks, I’ll be seeking joy out of my closet at home. With that in mind, I hope the same for you. In the spirit of fun and style, I’ll pick 5 things to wear in 5 minutes. Of course, this is an honor system…

I was reminded of Mother’s Day by an ad on instagram. The holiday eluded me this year. A day among many— one day in particular—too close to counting the days. But when recognizing it, I realized that it was something that was worth acknowledging. But also, something that in it’s own way, is worth indulging in.

Last weekend, when the kids left the house for a bit, I texted my friend, “I’M GOING TO SIT AND READ A BOOK ON THE COUCH!” I was hopeful and ambitious, and of course, didn’t pull through. The truth is that I remain jealous of those who are able to cater corners to do nothing and something in their spare time. With two kids, school, work, and a house to keep, I am finding no such thing exists. I remain—as do many mothers that are like me—a revolving door of things to do (even when I try and ignore them).

This Mother’s Day, with what I have and desire for myself and others, that may be floating off of the end of their seats lately, is a moment to get dressed, sit and read. Sounds phenomenal, doesn’t it? Not late at night, either. A middle of the day, curled on the couch, nothing to do kind of read. I’m looking forward. Until then, here’s my 5×5…

A Doén Dress

Vintage mules

A mustard vintage buckle belt

A red bandana

and a good book

How do you plan on celebrating Mother’s Day?

    A fab Mother’s Day looks like sitting outside in my backyard in my comfy chair reading a book basking in the sun. Enjoying some me time while quietly appreciating being able to celebrate the day. ❤️💐
