i'll have what she's having {like mother, like daughter}


It's officially May, which means a few things. I'm quickly approaching my first full month in New York City (woot!) and my mom is coming out to celebrate the occasion (not to mention Mother's Day).

Of course, when it comes to my mom, she always has the same response each year regarding Mother's Day gifts. "I don't need anything, save your money, just give me a call...etc. etc."

To that I say: Mom, you can stop reading this post right now.

Now that she's gone, I'm happy to report we have quite the little itinerary lined up here in the city, including, but not limited to: seeing Larry David's play Fish in the Dark, visiting the new Whitney museum and lots of walks through Central Park with Elvis. 

As for the gifts? Since she has a habit of raiding my closet whenever she visits (she's been known to talk me out of shoes that I don't really wear that much anymore and proceed to take them home), I'm starting to realize our tastes are very much aligning these days. Which really, isn't all that bad, right? Just means there's more to borrow back and forth.

Here are a few beauties I've been eyeing for her (and myself) all from my closet away from closet, The RealReal

What are you getting for your mom this Mother's Day?

shortcuts

Coat: Zara (worn as a blazer; old, but similar style here); Jeans: MiH; Shoes: Zara; Belt: Asos; Bag: Saint Laurent; Scarf: Jonathan Adler; Sunglasses: Ray-Ban; Watch: Daniel Wellington

Two things about this outfit today:

1. I'm all about repurposing my winter coats into longer blazers by simply changing the silhouette on them (i.e. a belt). 
2. When in doubt, throw on a scarf -- ascot style. 

Hope you're having a great week so far!
