Happy (late) Mothers Day! I just wanted to take a minute to tell you how amazing my mother is. She does so much for me without being recognized and is so great at encouraging me to be the best I can be. So a big thank you goes out to my mother (and Grandmother) and all the other moms out there for being so amazing! And in this shot, we are all so much taller than we appear. I'm 5' 8" and am wearing probably 4" wedges, which makes me just a tad taller than my grandmother. And my mom is like supermodel tall in those awesome navy wedges! Needless to say, we don't lack hight in this family.
(Grandmother, Me, Mother)
So for Mothers Day, me and my family usually go to the 1818 Club to eat brunch with the rest of my family. Sidenote: it is the best food I eat all year long. I wore this sheath dress (Feral Outfitters: 60% off $65) to the club with my white wedges (Payless BOGO $10 last spring). Because this dress was so beautiful and a busy print, I paired it with dainty accessories and my clustered pearl necklace (also from Feral). I really wish I had some funky purple heels to go with this dress, but my wallet is slowly catching up with my style. I recycled my bracelet from a gaudy gemstone bracelet with the ugliest gold I had ever seen, and just tore off the gems and sprayed it gold and it turned out beautifully.
So this is a funny story. There are a million carpenter bees under this deck for some reason, and today was especially hot so they were swarming about. And in between shots, one flew into my hair. This is my worst nightmare, because I mean, look at how much hair I have. And it is five times thicker than it actually looks so I was worried that I would never find it. And when I get stung, I swell up like none other. So needless to say, that was an interesting shoot.
So Happy Mothers Day to all those wonderful women out there who are mothers! Make sure to let your mom know that she is appreciated.
