Happy Birthday mamitaaaa!!!!! Today is my mother's birthday and she is the best mother I could have ever dreamed of having. She is loving, sincere, caring, and just a wonderful role model in my life. I am so proud to say I am the daughter of such a perfect mother and father. I only have good memories and a lot of love for both of them, so happy birthday mamita!

To go along with my birthday challenge, I came up with an outfit and a sign inspired by my mother. My mom is the one that taught me how to dress nicely and she is just such a stylish woman! She is the absolute queen of making perfectly matched outfits in which she always looks so beautiful. So in honor of those wonderful skills, I decided to make an outfit in which all of the items matched each other perfectly. I also made sure to include blue in my outfit since that's her favorite color.

In terms of the Happy birthday sing, I decided to make it in the shape of a heart to resemble all the love she has given me throughout my life. I also decided to make it green and blue (I know that in the photos it doesn't look green and blue but it is) because that is one of her favorite color combos!

  10. Thank you for such lovely words and tribute. I was wondering what outfit you would pick to be inspired by my style. You chose a perfect one since its true blue is my fav color and I love the stylish working look. You inspire me all the time as well to try new things and styles... bought some skinny jeans today so we will see how and where I will wear them.... as you say gotta try new things and take a few risks but certainly stay " age apporpriate " Thats my motto now since I dont want to look ridiculous. LOL
    Love you bunches. MOM
