Heart to Heart

My family and I took a mini weekend trip for Mother's Day to LA & Hollywood and I found myself in a particularly affectionate mood. I admit, I have been accused of being a mama's girl from time to time. So call me childish, but whenever I feel that way (i.e. Valentine's day/Anniversaries/Weddings/ any celebration involving love whatsoever), I am instinctively drawn to warmer colors like reds and pinks, as well as hearts and circles, which was my primary inspiration for this outfit.

Heart 6
Hope you all had a fantastic weekend celebrating Mother's Day and/or spending time with your family. I am always especially fond of this holiday because I sincerely appreciate everything my mom has done for me, from carrying me for 9 months (no sushi! no salads! no wearing most of your favorite clothes/shoes! no on a few other indulgences, and countless other sacrifices) to putting up with me through my teenage years, and now, to being my partner-in-crime/friend/mentor/shopping buddy, etc., I  you, Mom! I've sure got a lot to live up to in the future.
