IF MOTHERS WERE FLOWERS

Posted: 05.11.2014

Happy Mother's Day to all of the hard working mommies out there! Because you ROCK!

This feature means a lot to me. Not only because it is Mother's Day and I am obviously a mother, but when you think retrospectively, you remember Mothers are our first style influence. They teach us life lessons on life and love; all while influencing our personal style. And without them, where would we be?

But I pose one very important question... What is a mother without a child? Simply a woman. The children that a woman bear grants her the title of mother, mom, and anything of the sort. As a woman it is important to have a close knit relationship with your mother and vice-versa.

From the most stylish to the plain Janes... I hear over and over again, "I get it from my mom" or "My mom's closet is my favourite place to shop".

As a mother, I want my children to express themselves in anyway possible--specifically through the medium of style. I want my children to be style conscious; but not in a sense of vanity, in a sense of awareness.

My daughter, my little love, my greatest love, my Beautiful Rose is the most creative child I know. She has her favourite clothes and outfits that are on continous replay... She amazes me with her style preferences; because many adults allow the media and mannequins to spoon feed them fashion and style.

Without hesitation she gets creative and mixes colors and patterns. Her cowgirl boots are her go to shoes. While getting dressed yesterday, she turned to me and, "I like wearing black and dark blue. They look really good on me, but I still love pink and purple." At the tender age of seven, she knows what she likes.

As she often reads to me... "If mothers were flowers, I'd pick you." I could not ask for a sweeter child. Ladies take time with you daughters and lead by example... They are watching!
