“Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6
Words cannot express how thankful and blessed I am to have an amazing mother, Godmother, grandmothers, great-grandmothers (yes, they are both still alive), aunts, and all the mothers in my life. They have all played a different, yet very important role in my upbringing. They have each instilled in me a great sense of morality, goodness, honesty, and respect. I thank God for putting these special women in my life. Their teachings have always, and will forever stay with me. These things I have learned from them, I hope to pass on to my son, any future children I may have, and other generations to come.
On this Mother's Day, I decided to get all dolled up and feel extra pretty and ladylike. It's no secret that I love getting all dressed up, but sometimes the everyday hustle and bustle, motherhood, and all of the things packed into our daily schedules, don't allow us to take the extra time to look, well...pretty. It's not everyday that I get a chance to look like this, but when I do get a chance, I take advantage of that time, because I really do believe that when we look good, we feel good. This blog has been a great outlet for me personally, to display my love for fashion, and it is my motivation to come up with beautiful, affordable outfit ideas that will cheer us up and lift our spirits. Not just for me, but for you too!
For those mothers who feel like they don't have the time or money to look fabulous, think again. There are ways to do this without breaking the bank and time, well, I'm sure you can find a little time if you put in some effort. Let's take a look at what I wore on this Mother's Day. This look is simple. sophisticated, and oh so pretty... and guess what? The entire look, from head to toe, only cost me $75. Unbelievable! Right? I purchased this dress a little over a year ago, and finally got a chance to wear it. I believe it was originally between $38-$45 and I got it on sale for only $14. These leopard print pumps that I love so much were also purchased over a year ago, and I got those for $25. The gold clutch was $10 at H&M (this was a recent purchase), and $26 were spent on all of the jewelry. Not bad for a look for less. This look is easy to recreate. I have provided similar items below to help recreate this look for a just few dollars more.
