Stylings for Moms.

I love moms. They really make the world go round. This was my submission to the Polyvore Set for Styling Moms.

Even if the only runway she walks it down the frozen food isle, our moms are magnificent multi-taskers. As is this outfit. classic "mom" with a art deco/Parisian touch. I chose the peril necklace. Very classic and chic and will always be. But I wanted to incorporate some of the vintage styles are are showing up on the runway. So I choose a collar-eque option instead of just a classic strand. But even though it is not a classic option, it can easily be paired with a nice blouse for work or a night at the opera.

The top, I choose to be something that can be worn as a cover-up to a nice bohemian option. Something that can be easily tossed on over an lacy undershirt and look like you slaved for hours on what to wear. The cinch hides our midsection "cookie-hookie" from our diet, while still appears to be form friendly.
One of the best things all women should own is a pencil skirt. I choose a neutral color, so it can be re-used with any type of top. But even though it is form fitting, it also has a slight distraction piece that draws any view down to your great calves. I say great calves and legs because they will be when you're wearing these shoes. The basket weaving is a throwback to the 70s, but with a nice and functional way. These shoes can be paired with a t-shirt and jeans an still bring out a very cool demeanor out of the wearer.

I also felt it appropriate to bring some of the slight "knotty" feel of the shoes into the accessories. I chose a gold knotted ring and a multi-strand link bracelet to tie it together. Both in color scheme and in simplicity.

Each piece can be reused in their own way in a plethora of combinations. Which is what all mom's need.


  1. Love the shoes. You always showcase such awesome, and again I say awesome, shoes
