The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new. ~Rajneesh
Aw monday, why do you come around so fast?!?! I hope everyone spoilt their mum at the weekend! I travelled up to the north coast and spent the weekend with my family. Well my two families. My parents divorced when I was four and both remarried and had kids with their partners so my family is kinda extended. Feel sorry for Connor as there is so many family members! But it is great cause at Birthday's and Christmas's I get double the presents but then of course I have to buy twice the amount of presents! Ah the joys of a modern family!
So I bought my Step mum, a gorgeous funky candle that had feathers & everything on it! My little sister and I then bought my mum a gorgeous basic dress from topshop, perfect for the summer but then she is also able to wear it now by putting a jumper over it. Boom! Brownie Points galore.

So I had to go into topshop to obviously buy the dress and I really didn't see anything I wanted to buy. If I was buying of course! So that made me feel good cause if I had went in and seen loads, I prob would have burst into tears. My mum has always influenced my clothing style. I think the more we grow up, the more we turn into our mothers. Thank god, mine is a MILF (haha extra brownie points!) I remember my mum telling me not to mix brown and black when I was younger which I do all the time so her advice isn't always right but I still follow the rule that she told me "If you are showing a lot of skin up top, don't show skin down below. It's about balance".
This was my outfit for mother's day lunch. We went out to the Winebar (duh, I don't even need to tell you where we go to eat anymore. It is always there) But I really loved this look and it is all pieces that I have worn before and posted about but I never would have pieced it together like this before. Especially not with the converse! This week I am going to do a post of basics and how to wear them 50 different ways! One good thing about my wardrobe is the fact that I have a good foundation of basics like I said on Friday or else I don't think I would be able to do this challenge at all!! So keep a eye out for that post!
