boho fabulous

today my make-up may look artfully smudged and smoky, but it's mostly because i cried on and off all through church today. i just love mother's day and i was spoiled by my husband and kids and i heard so many wonderful uplifting thoughts on motherhood.
my favorite?
"God planted within women something divine." president gordon b. hinckley

i love the all encompassing simplicity of that statement. being a mother has been the best thing for who i am and i know it's because it is the most important thing that i can do.
blouse- michael kors
skirt- apartment 9 at kohl's
shoes- kristin davis via tj maxx
hat- bakers

 unrelated, this shirt makes me swoon. tie dye satin? i think that perfectly personifies my style. i felt i may be breaking rules by adding a satin skirt and a rafia hat(which i may have been wearing backwards) and rugged platforms. woodstock goes to the prom. boho fabulous. breaking rules? possibly. but who cares? nothing feels better than dressing like yourself.

"Motherhood is the greatest potential influence either for good or ill in human life. The mother's image is the first that stamps itself on the unwritten page of the young child's mind. It is her caress that first awakens a sense of security; her kiss, the first realization of affection; her sympathy and tenderness, the first assurance that there is love in the world." David O. McKay

I loved all the talks on Mother's Day - and when my mind occasionally wandered I was happy to fix my eyes on your beautiful blouse in front of me. Love it!

I'm not even a mother and church was so inspiring for me, too.

You look smokin' in a hat. I need to get up the guts to try it.

This girl sat a bit in front of me in church on Sunday wearing an awesome hat. I thought, "That is something Heidi would rock. I wonder where she is." I would glance around subtly looking for Heidi. Hmm, don't see her.
10 min later... Hat lady helps Scarlet with something. OOOh, it is Heidi in the hat. Awesome. I am so thick sometimes...
