Mahogany Closet Monday Fashion Link Up + Blue Tie Dye Maxi Dress

Happy Mother's Day!!!!

I want to wish all the mothers a happy Mother's Day. I know Mother's Day was yesterday, but I think we should be celebrated everyday anyway! :-) Hope you guys had a great day! I had a really great and simple day. It was also my first Mother's Day since my mom passed last August. The interesting thing is that I thought about it leading up to the day and was worried about how I would do, but the weight of it didn't actually hit me that day.  I didn't want to be a ball of tears all days, and I am thankful that that wasn't the case. Having reached that milestone I think I want to do more next year to actually celebrate her. And if all of that was enough today is my daughter 10th birthday. Her first double digits. Since her birthday is so close, I often spend Mother's Day weekend throwing a celebration for her. This year I will be taking cupcakes to her school today and having a little family celebration at the house and then I will take her and friends out to celebrate next weekend. So this way we both got to celebrate our days. :-)

About the outfit 

I said I was going to be all about the maxis this spring/summer and you see I wasn't playing. There was the striped one I wore here, the black one I wore here and the orange one I wore here. Yeah, I know, I know, I may seem a little obsessed. LOL This dress was from the online clothing boutique that I used to have. I had it for years, loved the dress but it took me a little while to figure out the right shapewear situation to wear under to make it work since it is so fitted. I still have a bunch of clothes left from my online clothing boutique days, I need to have some kind of liquidation sale. Well check out the pictures and let me know what you think.

Featured Fashionistas from last week's link up...

Because there were so many amazing outfits linked up and to kind of make up for not having Featured Fashionistas a couple times, this week I have 6 great Featured Fashionistas instead of the normal 2. The funny thing it was even hard to narrow it down to 6 because there was so many great looks last week! If you link on the name that leads you to their main blog page, clicking the image leads you to that specific blog post. Thank you again to everyone that linked up!

Love everything about this look. Beautiful classic black dress, gorgeous shoes, and I am so smitten buy that bag!! 

Shauna just has such amazing style in general. Week after week she produces just amazing looks and this one is no different. Love how cute and comfortable that shift dress looks and those shoes!!! I am a sucker for fringe and loving those shoes 

I love a caftan. It is just so easy, cute and comfortable. Definitely one of my favorite throw on looks. So I am so in love this super simply and easy DIY by Riva. Click on the picture to link to this specific project.

This skirt outfit is already so lovely on it's own, but the mommy and me cuteness is just too adorable.

Loving this stripes and polka dot look plus the added detail at the neck line. So cute!

Karen is rocking this cute and classic outfit. Love the pop of color and that clutch is so adorable!
