One day ’til Mother’s Day

So if you had to ask me what a mother really wants for Mother’s Day, I’d have to say time.

If she has little kids then she probably wants time alone.

Time to do something without someone asking her a question, needing something from the fridge or time away from locating socks, sad puppy and that missing piece of Lego

However if her kids have flown the roost then she more likely wants time with her kids.

Time to hang, talk, eat and be together.

Which ever way you give her time this weekend… she will be happy.

However, if you’d also like to give her a side of gift with her time, here is my take on the traditional Mother’s Day favourites…

1. Books

Parisian Chic by French fashion It girl, Ines de la Fressange, is at the top of my ‘must read’ list…

2. Slippers

Hugh Hefner-style slippers are tres-chic at the moment. Consider them as this seasons’ update on the ballet flat… Yes, they are worn outside.

Fab with leggings and an oversized tee or leather skorts and a lady-like blouse.

I love the leopard print version from Soles via StyleTread

Last Supper Dusty Leopard from Soles

3. PJ’s

Flowery flannels from the house of Target? mmm, no thanks.

Blue Camo all-in-one with non-slip iron on feet stickers? yes please!

For the pure hilarity of the pics on their website, check out Jay’s PJ’s

4. Flowers

Go for something sculptural and for added impact choose a single colour – I love gum blossoms
