Style Inspiration: Mom

There are plenty of bloggers and women in the fashion world that I look to for style inspiration, but I could never overlook the woman that has taught me so much about style since I was a little girl: my Mom!  It was her birthday yesterday so I wanted to dedicate a post to her and her wonderful style.  My Mom has fabulous taste and loves all things classic, chic, and feminine; she has taught me so much about fashion and I often look to her for advice when shopping..{which won't be for another 8 month..}


my Mom's beautiful Escada cocktail dress



my Mom's gorgeous sapphire + diamond wedding ring

my Mom's classic Jimmy Choo pumps {if only I wore her size!}

my Mom's luxurious leather Burberry bag

a vintage Oleg Cassini dress my Mom passed down to me - she wore it for New Year's Eve in 1980 and I wore it for New Year's Eve in 2011 in Chicago! 

my Mom and I at Elk Cove Winery in Willamette Valley, Oregon. 
Happy Birthday to the best Mom in the world, love you!

Have a good week!
