Mothers Day is fast approaching…can you believe May is just around the corner? Whether you are shopping for your mom, sister, or friend….you want the gift to be something special, right? How about purchasing from a “mother” owned business this year. You will be celebrating women who do their best to juggle it all….is there a better way to honor a mother? A few of my favorite online shops are mother owned and operated…I suppose I gravitate towards women who “welcome the crazy”. I hope you find the roundup of my faves helpful in picking out a gift this season. If you aren’t particularly smitten with my choices, please pop over to the sites…and discover all that these mamas have to offer. Happy Shopping:)
THIRD STREET HABIT: If you follow along any which way, you have seen the Philadelphia boutique Third Street Habit featured countless times. The owner, January, mother of one with another on the way, has an incredible eye for unique clothing and accessories…labels you just won’t see everywhere. I stop in this store EVERY time I am in Philly. I actually just purchased a few items last week and tried on this blouse. LOVED IT…but had to draw the line somewhere due to budget. Boo. My loss can be your gain:)
SUSIE RAINE: This online shop is owned and operated by two fellow JERSEY moms! Susan has three and Lorraine has two…so they are definitely busy moms on the go….but keeping affordable style as a top priority too:) I personally adore her collection of scarves and have them on constant rotation for Spring. This Americana scarf is perfect for Memorial Day weekend, no?
STELLA AND DOT: Founder Jessica Herrin is a busy mother of two. She creates beautiful baubles that adorn women of the world, but more than that, she empowers them to start their own businesses….giving them a way to work AND stay at home. I have highlighted one of my favorite spring/summer necklaces. The coral is so perfect for the warm months ahead.
ZOLIE DESIGNS: Larissa is also a New Jersey native and mommy….creating the most beautiful handcrafted pieces of jewelry. I have featured her on the blog too many times to count…and love wearing her statement necklaces. Lately, she has been creating more delicate pieces and I am particularly smitten with this St Barths bracelet. So sweet and feminine…perfect for a lady in your life. Layer it with other bracelets or wear on its own.
