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?


  1. Love the bags, that Saint-Lauren clutch is quite cool :)
    Mother's Day is at the end of the month in France, and I'm already thinking about what I'll get for mine. I was planning to go to Lush and make a little selection of their natural soaps and shampoos and other beauty products.

  2. I love the post title! We've had out Mothers Day in the UK, hope you both enjoy your Mum's day!

  5. Great picks, sure your mum is going to love it. I bought my mum a cute striped blazer and am getting her out to lunch. :)
    Have a great weekend!

  6. While I love my mom, she and I have never been on the same page fashion-wise. Nor have we ever been the same size to share (I'm 5 inches taller than her). I think it's fun that you can do that with your mom. And so wonderful that she can come visit. Hope you have a great time.

  7. sounds like you guys are going to have a lovely time together
    i'm not sure what to get my mum yet

  8. Amazing picks.
