Preparing for Mother’s Day

My mom has to be the most wonderful woman I have ever come into contact with.  She is loving, sweet, and kind.  Her personality is infectious and people are drawn to her smile and laughter.  She has not only taught me to be a woman of Christ, she led her life as a true example, even when she did not know I was paying attention.  Being a pillar of the church, my mom has helped young women grow in the Lord and by being a teacher and shoulder to cry on for many others.

These past couple mother’s days have been a little challenging for me.  Ever since she was diagnosed with dementia, she has been rapidly failing.  And even through her struggles, she is still a great teacher to me.  With the issues she is dealing with adding up, she continues to pray and ask me what I need prayer for.  Her ability to read has since past, so her daily Bible reading has been replaced with singing hymns.  She is to me the most beautiful woman to have ever graced this earth and I am truly blessed to be called her daughter.

This year, my sisters, nieces, and I are putting together a tea party to celebrate and honor her.  The weather here in Southern California has been a little weird with it being sunny and 89 degrees one day and then 60 degrees and overcast the next.  With that being said, I have selected two different looks that are possibilities to wear to our little event.

LOOK 1

Mothers Day Outfit AV-Neck Tank Top in Nosie Posey: Lilly Pulitzer for Target (similar)  |  Geo Eyelet Skirt in Spring Citron: LOFT  |  Caged Block Heels: Mossimo via Goodwill of Orange County (similar)

This look is super springy with floral and bright color.  I would probably wear a cami, either citron or pink, under the tank.  The addition of a simple necklace would make this a really cute tea party look.  If it a little on the cool side, I may throw on a jacket or cardigan.

LOOK 2

Mothers Day Outfit B

Lace Top: Cato via Poshmark seller nelsonwoman (similar)  |  Melo Maxi Skirt: Anthropologie  |  Open Toe Sueded Boots: Old Navy (similar)

This option is a totally different, but I thought the lace top was dainty and a little less expected for a tea party.  An ivory tank underneath would be required.  The long, stretchy maxi skirt would allow me to move around a little bit easier and give a little more tummy room, if you know what I mean!  The boots could be replaced by a more open sandal if the weather turns out to be warm.

Either way I go, I will be so happy to be spending the day with my family celebrating my mom.  I will be posting the look I chose next week on the blog.

Which look is your favorite?  What are you doing for mothers day?

Today’s Postivity Note

There is no pit so deep that God’s love is not deeper still.

Be Blessed!
