Striped palazzo pants + white front tied top

Spring is in full swing now, so off we go in search of spring fun and flowers! Whoot Whoot! We ended up at the Leach Botanical Garden in Portland, Oregon. The flowers were in bloom all around the property, with hints of more yet to come. What started off on a more serious ‘down-to-business’ note ended up on a rather goofy note by the time we made our way up to the top of the gardens.

White top + silver hoop earrings

This outfit was perfect for a romp around the botanical gardens. The lightweight wide leg striped palazzo pants make it a comfortable, yet whimsical outfit. Tying the white button up shirt in a knot at the bottom also adds to the casual day look rather making it look too business-y for a day in the park. Add on comfortable velvet sneakers and a denim jacket for walking in the shady parts of the garden and you’re all set for a fun outing amongst the trees and flowers.

Kate Spade for Mother’s Day

I absolutely love Kate Spade products! They usually have a bit of a whimsical, fun aspect to them. I recently received this purse in the mail from Kate Spade in flamingo pink. Even the name of the color is fun! Why have regular pink when you can have flamingo pink, right? I love the style. The inside of this bag is super cute with a black and white striped liner. I like bags with a zipper divider pocket in the middle because it helps with organization. Big bags with no middle divider are a nightmare to find things in. You find yourself digging around for hours just to find your car keys. Gah. No thank you!

I must admit, I’ve never owned a purse that cost over $50 in my whole entire life, nor do I believe my mom has, either. I think at some point every woman should have the chance to see what it feels like to own a really nice purse. I am pumped to take this out for a whirl around town.

My mother is currently fighting cancer. She has a rare aggressive soft tissue sarcoma that chemo can’t kill. However she is on a trial program through OHSU in Portland, Oregon, and is so far keeping the cancer tumors down to a minimum. We have been told ultimately even the trial drug will fail, but it is buying her time right now. I’m sure any one who’s ever had a close friend or family member with cancer would do anything for just a bit more time. And who knows, maybe while we are buying her time, a new drug will come out on the market to buy her even more time or cure the cancer.

I go to a lot of my mom’s chemo sessions. We like to take silly Snapchat photos when we go to chemo together. Not because we’re taking the cancer lightly, but to lighten up our day as we sit there. What kinds of silly things do you do or did you do with your mom? How do you remember Mom on Mother’s day?

(Even one of my cat’s liked the Kate Spade handbag. She took over the spot I was photographing it in as soon as I walked away.)
