As many of you know, I am blessed to have my wonderful mom, Mary, living in our home with us for the past 5 years. Some of you have even had the pleasure of meeting her in person. You can catch her first video interview here. She is an internet sensation 😉
Today she turns 93, and despite being almost completely blind, and very hard of hearing, she is still the most upbeat, positive, loving and glass-half-full person I’ve ever known.
She has been such a blessing to our family, and especially to our boys as I hope much of her attitude and outlook has rubbed off on them. If only her cleanliness and lack of clutter would rub off. Instead she shares a bathroom with the animals which is just unfortunate — but she never complains.
Since this is a style blog, I wanted to share some fun pics of Mary through the years. She is my first and favorite style icon and proves to this day that classic style is timeless and that less is more. But her style also shows that clothing and “just getting dressed” should be celebrated and fun and is great way to express yourself.

Here’s to Mary…Happy Birthday! xoxox
Now ladies…Keep it simple, have FUN with clothes — and go #justgetdressed.
