In honor of my Mom's special day, I decided to do a 50s-inspired outfit--with a modern twist, of course! Although I didn't go all out with voluminous curls, I dolled it up with an adorable headband from Notes & Knots, some high-waisted jeans, and bold lipstick. Seriously, the 50s was an amazing era for fashion! Definitely a decade I'd want to go back to and experience--so I can meet my mom when she was a little kiddo! Haha. (Also, can you tell by this outfit that I want it to be Spring/Summer already? The sun keeps teasing me...)

My mom is the sweetest, strongest, prettiest woman I know. She has been there for me through all my ups and downs, supporting every decision and dream I've ever had. I haven't been able to spend the past four birthdays with her because of college, but I never forget to remind her how much she means to me every year on January 22nd. 

Happy Birthday madre!
Love you to the moon and back!
