Mothers Day Inspiration + Ageless Style Link Up

Hi Everyone welcome to this Mothers day post.

Flowers, chocolates and hearts isn’t that what Mother’s day is all about? I have to chuckle as I write this as my daughter is currently upstairs creating something for me this Sunday – can’t wait – smile. I’ll be celebrating with my Mum later this month and when I do I know it will be a matter of putting on a pretty dress and taking her out for either lunch or dinner.

blackrabbitphotography_ff_7-6 ..on a mission to find a new dress I stopped by eclectic who kindly loaned me this pretty dress, a clutch and platform heels for this post.


I love the turquoise flowers mixed with English tweed. It’s so different from what I normally wear that makes it a little fun.

If in Zurich and looking for something new or maybe a little Mothers Day present this is the perfect place to shop for a little bag or unusual piece of jewellery or even a whole new outfit ;-).

Here a small  collection I found in eclectic just this week:

Love this hat also found in eclectic, it made me want to do something really special and share some real “Dolce Vita” with my Mother by taking her away for the weekend:
