Happy Mother’s Day, book lovers! I’m off spending the day with my mom and the rest of my family but I wanted to stop in a moment and wish all you mothers, grandmothers, godmothers, and mother figures of all kinds a very happy Mother’s Day. As someone who has been incredibly blessed by the women in my life, especially my mom, my grandmother, and aunts, I just want to say thank you for all you do.
In honor of the day, I put together this lovely Mother’s Day outfit featuring a handmade Velveteen Rabbit Necklace from the C. S. Literary Jewelry Etsy shop. The Velveteen Rabbit has always struck me as a great story for mothers. Not only is a classic children’s book – perfect for bedtime stories or rainy afternoons spent reading with your little one – but that famous quote about a child’s love making you real reminds me of what motherhood is all about. I’ve never had children but all the mommies I know have had their moments where taking care of their children have made them feel worn out and exhausted but even at their most frustrated or stressed, the love they feel for their children and their children’s love for them is simply magical and transforms them into something very real indeed. With this in mind, I couldn’t imagine a better book to feature in my Mother’s Day outfit!
Featuring a beautiful blue sundress and accented with cheery yellow sandals and purse, this lovely outfit is perfect for Mother’s Day brunch, story time with your little ones, or a book-themed baby shower. What do you think, book lovers? What books remind you of your mom? Let me know in the comments.
