This mother’s day is even more special for my family since my daughter Amber is expecting a little boy soon. The most amazing moment of your life is when the one you gave life to is about to become a mother and give life herself. There is no greater gift than that. But for the gift-box-and-bow variety, sentimental mother’s day gift ideas are the way to our hearts! From a DIY project to an investment accessory, see my selection of mother’s day gifts below.

- Smaller on top? Add ruffles or fringe for a little extra something
- A dark blue one piece with ruching is flattering on every woman
- Underwire, especially with a bustier top, is great for ladies with large busts
- A slimming pattern accentuates the waist line if you’re plus size

A lot of the men in my family are huge horse racing fans and with the Kentucky Derby coming up this weekend, I thought I’d talk about my favorite part – the hats! Horses are beautiful and the races are exciting but as a self-proclaimed people watcher, there’s nothing better than seeing all of the fabulous fashion.
I’m loving this Mud Pie Marilyn Gathered Brim Sun Hat with a cute sun dress (that BOW)! And at only $42, this hat will last you many spring and summers to come, from beach trips to garden parties.

Emerald may be the color of the year but there is nothing like rocking a bright orange color come spring. Whenever the warm weather starts to creep in, I start plotting a tangerine takeover for my wardrobe This shade looks amazing with a tan and can even be brought into your beauty routine (lips! cheeks! eyes! nails!). See my inspiration board + shop my picks below.

I buy a lot of colorful shoes – with very good intentions – but more often than not, I fall back on my favorite black sandals for spring. Black matches everything and when you’re wearing black leather pants or dark wash jeans, a black shoe finishes off the look and gives your legs that incredibly long and slimming effect. Here are a few sandals for spring I’ve been eyeing lately, and they’ve got everything from basic to bronze embellishments.
