Happy Monday! I hope everyone enjoyed a lovely Mother's Day yesterday! As I went home to visit my own mother we bonded over the Today Show Mother Makeovers and coffee! Bobbie Thomas, the Today Show's style editor, did a truly phenomenal job with the makeovers- check them all out here! But, it was her own look that really caught my eye! Bobbie sported a Nanette Lepore dress and Ruthie Davis shoes. She also brought along her own mother (also sporting AMAZING Ruthie Davis shoes) and an adorable dress from Zara. Quick story about Ruthie Davis- she is also a Connecticut native, so I have a bit of an obsession with her. Davis' shoes are out of this world! Sky high, skillfully embellished, edgy and super sexy! In short- perfection! They're not cheap, but you can definitely use them as inspiration if they aren't in your budget. OK, back to Bobbie- her dress doesn't appear to be available anymore in that color, but is still available in red (also worn by Rachel Berry on Glee!). Some Style tips to pick up from these looks: you can always take your look to the next level and accentuate your waist by adding a belt. I wouldn't have thought to belt Bobbie's dress- but look how cute it is! Also, color, color, color! Whether through a belt or shoes or maybe even jewelry- add a pop of color to your outfit for a fresh look. And lastly- take the advice your mother gave you as a child: never leave your house without a smile- it's always the best accessory!
