You can definitely trace my love of fashion and style back to my lovely mum. I always remember her getting dolled up when we lived abroad, for various parties and events, and I used to love playing dress up with all her beautiful dresses and accessories, complete with high heels of course! Nowadays, we often end up buying the same handbags or jewellery and it’s great fun sharing our latest buys with each other.
This Mother’s Day I’ve teamed up with John Lewis to celebrate my wonderful mama and have picked out a couple beautiful gifts from their ‘Fashion Forward’ selection, which is aimed at a stylish mum who likes to express herself with fashion. Perfect!
Being a working mum of two, under four, means that my time is super limited, but I never want to rush buying a gift for a loved one. The fact that John Lewis have grouped their Mother’s Day gifts into categories such as Gardener, Adventure Pro, Tech Savvy, Foodie, Multi Tasking New Mum, to name a few, is so helpful. It means that I am directed to a wide selection of suitable gifts without having to trawl through pages and pages to find what I’m looking for.
After a quick browse around the Fashion Forward gift selection, I found my perfect gifts for my mum.
This gorgeous Claudia Bradby pearl bracelet, in a beautiful shade of Grey, is right up her street and I can even picture the outfits she might wear this with. It was hard to choose between the three colours on offer though because the Pale Pink and the White also looked lovely. I love receiving gifts, such as jewellery, which will hold memories for years to come so I also like giving gifts that will hopefully do the same for my loved ones.
I tried to find another gift that would work well in tandem with the bracelet. This super cute Katie Loxton Silver pouch was perfect. I thought it would make a great pouch for storing jewellery for travelling with. I think the ‘All That Glitters’ text works well for my idea as well. This style of pouch comes in lots of different colourways, with different text options, so there is one to suit everyone’s taste.
It’s safe to say I’ll definitely be borrowing both these next time I’m home (if I’m allowed!).
My Mum is such an inspiration to me, and is also my biggest supporter, so I find it so very important to say thank you on Mother’s Day. Thank you Mum. Thank you for all you do for not only me, but my family as well. Love you lots and hope you enjoy your gifts!
