Spring Style & Gift Guide
It looks like those seemingly endless April showers have indeed brought lovely May flowers, and I have to admit that I am more than ready to say goodbye to the wet weather. (and especially happy to finally have a chance to wear my new spring dresses!)
You know that spring has finally arrived when Mother's Day pops up on the calendar. Which gives me just one more reason (as if I actually needed another reason) to search out the best of the best that spring has to offer in fashion and accessories, shoes and handbags, beauty and perfume, and all things girly. And you know that I take those duties to heart, right?
Well, I have been hard at work, checking out what the chic and stylish fashionistas and their moms have their little hearts set on this spring. Here are a few ideas to get you started, along with a whole slew of great products at fantastic savings for your mom, your sister, your best friend, and most importantly for you!
For the Fashionista Mom:
- A gorgeous handbag. I don't know a woman on earth who would turn up their nose at a great handbag for spring. This season looks for bright colors and fun textures.
- A fabulous pair of summer heels. (Hey, she's a fashionista, right? What fashionista worth her Choo's wouldn't want a kicky pair of sandals?) And if you are REALLY lucky, she'll let you borrow them!
- A truly unique one-of-a-kind necklace. Or pair of earrings. Or bracelet! I just love these handmade items from The Silver Loft on Etsy - they are all unique and individually handmade, so you know you won't see everyone and their mom wearing your necklace! Or, er, everyone wearing your mom's necklace, I mean.
For The Sporty Mom:
- A pair of comfy and stylish sandals that she can wear to the park, the soccer game and chasing the little ones around the yard. Opt for something with a heel strap to keep them secure for those quick, mad dashes that moms often have to make.
- A fun watch. I adore this DKNY jelly watch — so colorful, whimsical and practical, since it is waterproof and the strap can be washed off as well!
- Crisp, fresh scent: I just love fresh, feminine scents in the spring. One of my new favorites is this scent from True Religion.
- A great straw tote bag — ideal for the beach and other summer activities!
For the Classic Mom:
- A beautiful leather clutch bag. Stylish and practical, she'll think of you every time she uses this gorgeous bag.
- A timeless fragrance. My favorite, if course, is Chanel No5, but there are also many new fragrances that have that timeless classic scent, like Gucci Envy Me, Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue and Kenzo FlowerbyKenzo.
- A fragrant, long-burning candle. This is an especially fun gift when combined with a lovely little basket of bath goodies!
- An elegant chain link necklace. This one, by Dolce & Gabbana, is perfect for everyday wear and will remind your mom that she passed her exquisite sense of style on to you!
For the Earth Mother:
- Great gardening clogs. I know my mom absolutely adores her gardening clogs, and in fact, has purchased several pair which she keeps on a mud rack by the back door so she always has a fresh pair to slip into when her garden calls (which is often!). And my dear friend, Pretty Mama, has teeny tiny clogs for her little ones who love to help out in the yard — not only are they adorable, but practical as well, especially in all this muddy spring weather!
- An eco-friendly handbag. Matt & Nat has a fantastic selection of eco-friendly bags, make from recycled materials. I love them because they are so roomy and practical. In fact, I think I just might have to snag this one for myself!
- A subscription to Mother Earth News. I actually received a gift subscription from a former sorority sister who now owns an organic nursery, and I love reading this newsletter! Their website is fantastic as well.
- Animal, Vegetable, Miracle, by Barbara Kingsolver. After reading this book, I went out and bought several planters and have planted a container garden on my terrace! Yes, I am growing my own heirloom tomatoes, peppers, lettuce and cucumbers, as well as an entire array of fabulous herbs! Can't wait to make my own fresh salsa!
I found soooo many more great products that I decided to include an entire gift section below in She She Me's Favorite Things! Be sure to check them all out.

Looks like those April Showers have brought along some gorgeous May flowers! Just in time for spring's sassiest skirts and summer's sexy sundresses, these adorable floral styles from Børn shoes are all the rage. I was lucky enough to get a pair of the Cornflower in deep rose and I love the way the fit - the strap across the inset stabilizes the shoe for a comfortable and stylish fit. And they look fantastic with cropped trousers as well as flirty skirts!
