Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Moms can never get enough credit.

As kids, they taught us how to make our beds, brush our teeth, and wear something that matches. As we grow older, they help us pick new bedspreads for college, keep extra toothbrushes on hand for our friends, and, well, shop with us for something that matches.

With everything our mothers do for us over the years, it’s only fair that they get a day completely dedicated to spoiling them right back. Spending time with your mom and letting her know you care is by far the best gift; however, you did get your sense of style and love of shopping from somewhere. Show her what excellent taste you inherited – I don’t think she’ll mind a little something all wrapped up!

There isn’t anyone (mom or otherwise) who wouldn’t love a new summer PJ set, kicked off on Sunday with breakfast in bed. I can say with no shame that I make a terrible cup of coffee, but I buy cute mugs to make up for it. #distractionbyikat Also, the coordinating colors? That was no accident.

I always like to pair a few things when gifting clothing. Whether she wears them independently or altogether with her favorite outfit, your mom is guaranteed to get a lot of use from these pieces as well as plenty of compliments. Plus, you can always borrow them. Didn’t they warn us when we were younger about dressing like our mothers?

If you have Instagram and/or don’t live under a rock, you know how trendy (and delicious!) macarons are right now. Why not try making them with your mom? I’ve heard they can be difficult – although this is coming from a girl who can’t make coffee – so pair this cookbook with a sweet summery apron in case things get messy.

If all else fails, take her out to lunch, buy her some flowers, and let her forget all her responsibilities for the day. You can make macarons or terrible coffee anytime, but there’s only one day a year when your mom knows the real reason why you’re doing it!

J. Crew Love in London!

As I am sitting in a tiny coffee shop on yet another rainy night in London, I have decided there is one thing I want you to take away from this post. Even more important than reading my opinion on how to add a British twist to your spring wardrobe, I need you to understand how much I miss J.Crew.   Now are there more important things in my life that I am missing from the States? Sure. My family, LUNA bars, and oh how I do miss the sun. But, not having a J.Crew store to stop in for a new gingham or even to just be surrounded by inspiring colors, has really taken a toll on me. Listen to me complaining as I am traveling England 😉   Enough wallowing in my current J.Crew-less life, I am excited to share with you two looks that I have been witnessing all over this beautiful country. And I am helping you create these British ensembles in head to toe, crew.

And come visit me on xodiaries.com for a peek into my little life in London!

PS* Did you know J.Crew is currently carrying a few pieces from Liberty Art Fabrics, from London!? See #8 and find more HERE.
