Moms Rock! 5 Looks for Every Amazing Mom

If you had told me when I was 25 that someday, I would be able to cook dinner (without burning anything), check homework, soothe a crying preschooler and fold laundry all at the same time, I would have laughed in your face.  Then, I became a mom and realized I could do that, as well as a few other things, all at the same time!

In the military, mom is known as the Commander in Charge of House; others refer to moms as the ultimate CEO or Project Management Professional.  Moms know where every sock, each can’t-live-without stuffed animal and each vital Lego piece can be found. Sometimes, while she’s focused on keeping everyone else organized and looking awesome, moms forget to make themselves look as amazing on the outside as they are on the inside. This week, our amazing Zappos Stylists have helped bring together some amazing looks from our great plus brands for the most amazing women of all- Moms.

Great Gifts for Mom, Dad & Grad

The next couple of months are primed to be quite eventful with Mother’s Day, graduations and Father’s Day on our calendars! With so many important people to celebrate in the next few weeks, we wanted to take a moment to round up a few great gift ideas for all those wonderful moms, dads & grads out there. 

For Mother’s Day, why not treat mom to a nice Sunday brunch and surprise her with a chic women’s watch, a gorgeous Coach handbag to replace her old one or a pretty printed scarf for spring? Just seeing her smile as she opens up a gift she loves will be worth a thousand words!

When it’s dad’s turn to enjoy a day dedicated to his all-around awesomeness, surprise him with a practical yet equally awesome gift. A pair of fun cuff links that declares his love of golf perhaps? How about a classic sports watch or a new Fossil wallet to replace that old tattered one he keeps in his pocket? For the dad who’s into dressing up for the office or just to look his dapper best, a new Calvin Klein tie should do the trick.

Now on to the celebrated grads! Congratulate their many achievements with a gift that they can take with them as they venture into college, grad school or the “real world”. A snazzy new briefcase or a nice laptop case (for their new laptop, maybe?) are both great grad gift options. Commemorate her hard work with a pretty Dogeared necklace that represents her transformation into a successful and confident woman. Of course a versatile watch is always a good option to keep the new grad in time for class, interviews, flights...anywhere their next chapter takes them!

Spring Is Here! 12 Pieces to Welcome It.

For me, my favorite thing about spring is that it is a time of new beginnings where we can re-evaluate what we’ve done so far this year, and a great opportunity to get rid of all the lumpy, dumpy clothes, heavy coats and dark sweaters. Oh, and I get to celebrate my birthday in the spring!

Something about spring always makes me want to wear dresses, preferably ones from Poppy & Bloom, BB Dakota, and Rachel Pally, spin around in circles, walk barefoot in the grass and just be outside with friends and family, whether for cocktails on a patio or at the park.

I am absolutely in love with the dusty, mature pastels many designers are featuring this year. These soft, gentle pops of color brighten your day without making you feel like a jellybean. They also transition beautifully to summer and even into the fall.  Jag Jeans capris and DKNY Jeans shorts are perfect for enjoying those concerts in the park or just relaxing as the little ones gather bouquets of dandelions and purple clovers.

Since the days start out cooler before warming up midday, I love to ease into the season with light layers and three-quarter length sleeves. The added protection from the sun is just a bonus for people who burn at the mere thought of the sun, like me!  Speaking of protection, a great sun hat is not only a fabulous fashion statement, it keeps your face and neck protected, and in the long run, looking younger for years! Round out your look this season with an incredibly gorgeous, soft pastel leather handbag, whether in a hobo bag like the one featured below from COACH, or a tote bag for the beach.
