Where it began.

Yall, I really can't believe the overwhelming turnout to my giveaway and followers!!! I am GRATEFUL and THRILLED!!!!! Ok ok, enough with the exclamation marks Lindsay. Let me just say thank you. Thank you so much for continuing to visit my blog. It's amazing to me, and it is very very much appreciated :)

Now for something a little different. I am always talking about my little mama and how she has been (and still is) an influence on my style. She came to Nashville last week to help me do some wedding stuff and looked - as always - ADORABLE! I decided then and there that it was time she posed for my blog :)  Here's a couple pictures from our impromptu photo shoot after lunch and some others that I love of her. She has a forte for combining both high and low end pieces. She doesn't care where she gets something, as long as she loves it and thinks it will fit well in her wardrobe. I've seen her in Missoni paired with flats from Target. I've seen her in shoes bought from Bergdorf's in NY paired with a maxi dress from a local thrift store. My point is - we all need to take cues from her and shop for great pieces in unexpected - and not always the big named - places. Enjoy pictures of my personal style inspiration!


Mom in Nashville doing wedding stuff with me.


Here are the trio of bracelets I was talking about in my "Arm Candy" post!
Necklace was a custom-made Mother's Day give from her two lovely children :)


How to dress casual and still look amazing:
Add great sunglasses and a vintage necklace to low-key ensemble.


The fabulous duo tailgating in "The Grove" at Ole Miss.
The bracelet trio is on the hand hiding behind my dad...don't worry!


Aunt. Me. Mom. Rainbow Room - NYC.
Missoni top/dress, BCBG cardigan, vintage swing pants, bracelet trio, and ?? shoes.


Dress from unknown boutique. Necklace from street vendor in Soho.
Take your black basics and add a colorful tunic & head-turning necklace!


Tailgating in "The Grove".
Take a bright dress and add muted colored accessories.


In "The Grove"...again!
Mom wearing Missoni tank/cardigan, vintage black pants, and bracelet trio (plus some).
Here - even though you can't see it - she has paired it with flats to dress it down a little.


My mom has been wearing leopard since before I was born!
Always ahead of the times...even in middle school when I was embarrassed about it :)


At my cousin's wedding shower.
Don't know where she got anything here.
(Me: Trina Turk)


The Duo.... MY duo. :)
Yet again, showing you can take a simple black backdrop and make it "pop."
Wearing vintage necklaces and various armful of bracelets.


For my mom, it's all about mixing and matching. When I was in middle school, no one on earth - not even my mom - could tell me that. Take what you have and simply add interesting and unique pieces to it. Or add your standard (but still unique) favorites, like my mom does, to new finds. She's always a standout. Always!


GIVEAWAY UPDATE: I've decided how to pick the winner of the giveaway. I wanted to do things a little differently since a) I keep up with the Pirates because of my little honey and b) I have no idea how to do the random counter thingy that everyone always does. Starting today (5/24), the Pittsburgh Pirates have 7 away games in a row. Here's the scoop...The total number of runs (both teams) in each of the seven games is going to be the comment # that wins. You can keep up by visiting here. Baseball is weird. You never know what the # could be... could be 7 or 77. You never know! Good luck my friends, and thanks for commenting! xx
