Red Hot Mama

Mother's Day - such a great invention...because what girl doesn't adore being the cause for special celebration? The more occasions involving flowers, pressies, cards and cake, the better,  right? I also think it gives any mother a brilliant excuse to put her feet up and do nothing on that one day. (This was in fact the only thing my mum would ever ask my brother and me for... )
Alas, Sean and I don't have kids yet, so yesterday wasn't about me.... Instead we had a perfectly lovely time celebrating my mother-in-law... Haha - no, truly it was a very, very nice evening and she happens to be a wonderful woman who deserves all the accolades she can get.  (Besides, no need to feel sorry for me, I expect my time will come... I was also thinking that, since I am part British, part Swedish but live in the US, I could potentially qualify to be celebrated on three different Mother's Days once I have kids! Not bad in terms of future prospects, eh? Not bad at all. :)

I love the portrait (and bathroom, above) of Jenna Lyons Mazeau (fashion visionary at J.Crew) by William Waldron. Glamorous and pretty isn't it?  Just how I envision parenthood... Speaking of, are you watching that show? {Parenthood on NBC} I think it might be my new favourite - the acting is dead on.

Anyways, I wanted to wish all of you American mamas a belated Happy Mother's Day! Hope it was lovely in every way. Xx

She looks stunning and the wish I will look so good one day after having a baby :)
Btw: My mom is Polish and she lives in England and I live in she gets to celebrate Mother's day three times a year!
So you will be able to pull it off too :) I am planning to do the same when I have my own :)
Kisses and great post as always!

Yes, I love to hate Jenna Lyons! She's so pretty! And so talented! But yet she makes it look so effortless! Ah, gorgeous pic, hope your day is fabulous!

I think following you will up my style ante, Emelie!

I asked a friend yesterday to allow me to photograph her hounds on my bed-linens, I think it will look adorable! Maybe I'll have to borrow a baby too...
