Mama's Day


Hello there! So, as a Mother's Day gift to my wonderful mama, my sister and I decided that we would cook the Mother's Day meal this year. Unlike my sister, I actually love to cook, but being on a diet doesn't give me to many opportunities to bake and cook delicious things. So, when I get the chance to cook for other people, I take it! So, my sister and I made a few appetizers (including yummy zuchini and potato pancakes), mozzarella stuffed chicken, and penne a la vodka. And don't even talk to me about dessert. My mother's absolute favorite dessert is peanut butter pie, so I told my sister to pick one up from some bakery in Manhattan. And in addition to this, which was amazingly delicious, there were cookies and cream puffs and cheesecake. Oof, I ate too much. But it was worth it. Maybe. How was your Mother's Day?

This outfit made me feel a bit more mature than I actually am, but for some reason mother's day made me feel like dressing proper and sophisticated. I picked up this skirt from Goodwill yesterday, actually. It's a little big in the waist, but I thought the pattern was cute and I'm looking for some non a-line skirts to add to my wardrobe.

Top: H&M
Skirt: Ann Taylor via Goodwill
Shoes: Steve Madden
Belt that you can't see: Delia's





I love you mom. Thanks for being the best!

Until tomorrow,


  1. I always love your hair ornaments. They add a dainty finishing touch to all your outfits!

    Um...let's say this year I didn't exactly do something for Mother's Day? I don't exactly have an allowance and the closest things to cooking I can do are instant ramen and toast. Pretty pathetic, huh? But we had a wonderful day, so all is well :D

  2. oh i just love the colour of your shirt!!!! and the ruffles are just so cute, your mothers day meal sounded awesome :)

  3. You look adorbs, as usual:) I really love the orange top with that skirt! I'm glad you had a good time with your mom too.

  4. moms, oh moms, they certainly do need a day to take for themselves. you sound like quite the cook by the sounds of that meal! adore this sophistication, the top is wonderful with the skirt.

  5. Mmm, your cooking sounds delicious!! Glad you had a lovely Mother's day! :D
