Mimi Takes Five - #50

ONE // Mother's Day
Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there! Special shout out to my own amazing mom! She truly is one of a kind! I wouldn't be the person I am today if it weren't for her. She's a constant source of inspiration. She's always there for me when I need her, and even when I don't think I need her. The more I grow up, the more I see her in myself and I'm not mad about it! I can only aspire to one day be half the women she is. Je t'aime maman!

TWO // Eyelet Lace Headband
Surprise, it's another headband!!! Yeah, I'm not even going to try to hide this full-blown obsession... This white eyelet lace one was too cute to pass up and will be on repeat with all the pretty summer dresses. I love this accessory for so many reasons: they are easy to wear/put on, they are cute, trendy and make you look put together instantly. The best part is also the most practical. They let you wear your hair down while keeping it out of your face. When I was little, I remember my dad telling me that if I wanted long hair, it had to be kept off of my face. To this day, I can't stand hair in my face, that's why I'm always putting it up or pinning strands away from my face. Life lessons from dad!

THREE // Wedding Thank You Cards
I've been slowly but surely working on my wedding thank you cards. I've sort of let it slide a bit, but now I'm determined to get them done! Making cards is not exactly hard, I've just been lacking creative inspiration these days. It was all wedding, all the time for so long that I completely unplugged these last few months and it's proving difficult to jump back in and get my groove back. A quick trip to the craft store for supplies has gotten the creative juices flowing again, so it shouldn't be long now!

FOUR // Straw Purse
Another obsession that is very apparent is my love of straw bags. There is just something so authentic and organic about them. They can be as casual as they can be dressed up. Plus, they come in an array of shapes and sizes (that I seem to all want!) No summer outfit is complete without one! That goes for straw hats and espadrilles too! This little beauty comes from American Eagle and is the perfect size for a night out. The cross-body feature is what really sold it for me! Hands free bags are the best!

FIVE // Girlfriend catch-up
Went for a drink after work with one of my best friends the other day. It was long overdue and we had a great catch-up! It was also the warmest, most gorgeous day we've had so far and we got to enjoy a refreshing drink on a patio. My first patio outing of the season! We went to Tavern on the Hill in Major's Hill park. The setting is quaint with a relaxed vibe, its location is great and the views are breathtaking! I can see why it's such a popular spot! It's just the thing I needed to get into the summery mood! Spring who?
