Mother's Day Dress + WW Link Up


Lately, I've been finding myself spending a lot of time in Boston's North End.  Between the delicious food, cute boutiques, and fun spots to take blog photos, I can't seem to get enough of the historic neighborhood.  Last week, I decided to stop into one of my favorite shops, Shake The Tree, to check out the new spring merchandise.  If I didn't know any better, I would have thought that I did the merchandise buying for the store myself.  I seriously wanted to take everything home with me.  From floral dresses, to off-the-shoulder tops, they had everything that I wanted to fill my closet with this season.   Not only does Shake the Tree have a great selection of contemporary clothing, but you'll find all kinds of goodies from jewelry, to home goods, baby gifts, and bar ware.  If only I had the money to get all new bowls and dishes right now.....

With Mother's Day this weekend, not only will you find the perfect gift for your mother at Shake the Tree (cookbooks, vases, stationary, jewelry), but you'll find the perfect outfit to wear whether headed to brunch or dinner.  This Sanctuary floral dress caught my eye right away.  Not only do I love the floral print and off-the-shoulder cut, but it's super comfortable, and I could stuff my face with all waffles and mimosas that I wanted while wearing it.  Not to mention it has pockets, which in my opinion, makes everything better.  For all my Boston readers, this dress is still available, so get yourself into Shake The Tree now, and don't forget to grab a gift for that super woman in your life too! 

I'd love to hear, what are you all doing for Mother's Day?  I actually don't have any plans.... and I'm loving it!









Dress: Sanctuary via Shake the Tree| Earrings: via Shake the Tree| Heels: Sam Edelman| Sunnies: Chloé| Bracelets: Vita Fede (here and here)

  10. The dress is stunning on you and that goes without saying. I love that you are supporting local business in your city. I feel you pain, I often go into little boutiques and love it all but it's a bit hard on the wallet. Enjoy your mothers day weekend with your little ones.

  29. What a cute dress!!! I will be spending Mother's Day doing a race with my boyfriend in the morning, and then seeing my Mom in the afternoon. This is our first year without my Dad -- my parents were married for 50 years!! -- and we want to make sure my Mom knows that she is not alone on this special day.

    1. I hope the race went well! My dad has been gone for four years now, so I know holidays can be a little tough. I hope your mom had a great day.

  31. The best part of this dress is the fact that it has pockets haha! If you ask anyone around me, they'll tell you that I often choose pieces solely based on whether or not it has pockets. I love the fun floral on you and the off shoulder with ruffles. Too cute!
