Mothers’ Day Wishes

Instead of a traditional Mothers’ Day gift guide, I thought it would be fun to enlist the help of a few of my friends. So, I asked five of my favorite fashionable mamas/bloggers to tell me their top items on their Mother’s Day wish lists.  I hope you get as much inspiration as I did!Sheaffer with Carter

Sheaffer | Pinterest Told Me To

If you don’t know Sheaffer yet, you might live in a cave.  Kidding!  But her blog Pinterest Told Me To is wildly popular and one of my own personal favorite daily reads.  She’s funny as heck and smart as a whip, all with a generous side of sass.  Sheaffer and I met when we were both new to the blogging world.  She’s an incredibly supportive person and I feel lucky to know her in real life!

Shay and Family

Shay | Mix and Match Mama and Mix and Match Family

Shay and I came to know each other through Sheaffer (they’ve been good friends for years).   She’s a beautiful person, inside and out, with a gorgeous family, strong faith and a famous brother (Does The Bachelor ring a bell?  Yep, she’s Sean Lowe’s sister!)  Check out both of her blogs for incredibly easy family recipes and more about her travels and family life.

Carly of Thirty Something Fashion is a stylist with incredible credentials  – including working for Neiman’s and Nicole Miller, styling high profile clients and producing runway shows.  Her ability to mix high and low fashion makes her accessible to everyone.  But what I love most about her is that she’s totally approachable,  down-to-earth and just a really sweet, beautiful girl.

Sherry | The Life of the Party

Sherry is another total sweetheart.  I hand picked all of these moms in large part because they are genuinely NICE people.  Yes, nice matters.  🙂  She’s an events planner and fashionable mama living in Hawaii.  (Jealous?  Yeah, me too.)  Sherry’s blog features beautiful outfit photo shoots from around the island as well as gorgeous home decor and party planning inspiration.

Jenni has the ability to put together an outfit like nobody’s business.  Her almost two million set views on Polyvore are a testament to her amazing abilities.  She’s an Anthro lover (hey, Anthro, this girl needs to be your ambassador!), an expert at creating color combos and an accessorizing maven.

and yes, I do have three kids but when your son is a teenager, pics with mom are way “uncool”. 🙁

[Cannondale Bike/Kendra Scott Earrings/Warby Parker Sunglasses]

Yes, a mountain bike.  Our family’s favorite activity is biking, we go year-round. But I’ve been riding the same old beat-up men’s Cannondale that I bought for $75 from a student at SMU years ago.  I’ve paid my dues on that clunker.  Mama needs a new bike!

I must also mention my love of these Kendra Scott Danielle earrings.  Last weekend I tried out the new colors in their just released summer collection Island Escape and instantly fell in love, especially with this pretty sea foam green.
