My Mom, Style Icon Giveaway!

You may see this cute book popping up around the internet. It is on a little blog tour this week. I was honored when I was asked if I would partake. My Mom, Style Icon by Piper Weiss is beyond adorable. The moment I sat down to look thru it, I was glued to the couch for like an hour. In the book Piper has a collection of photos of stylish moms, with stories and sections like “Hair Story,” “Going to the Chapel,” and “Mom’s Gone Wild.” This Book really is a little treasure and perfect for your own book collection or perfect for a Mother’s Day Gift.

In the spirit of Reflection today, I wanted to share some pictures of my own Mom. I love her to death. I always enjoy looking back at pictures of her when she was my age.

To enter the giveaway all you need to do is leave a comment below. Simple, Simple. Giveaway will go from now until this weekend. Winner will be randomly chosen and notified by email.

  47. Jannira •

    Its funny because my mom and I have different styles, but everything I wear she says “I used to wear that when I was your age.” So really we have the same style, just a few decades apart. 🙂

  48. That book looks amazing! I totally find myself dressing like one of my best friends mom’s. I’m a 90’s kid and I still love the fashion.

    And this couldn’t have been posted on a better day, it’s my mom’s birthday!

  60. Molly E. Scott •

    isn’t amazing to look back at photos you don’t even recognize the women you know now. I find it amazing my mother every wore make-up since i have never seen her wear a stitch since I have been around. yet , at one time she was that person in photo wearing make-up … she is amazing make-up or not or bad eighties perm or not.

  61. Love it!

  62. I’ve seen this book on a number of sites now and I want it more each time I see it.

  63. Ohhhhh my goodness, this looks like the best coffee table book EVER… I need it!

  64. This book looks fantastic, I was just checking it out on Kendi’s site yesterday 🙂

  65. I love this book! It is definitely for my mom who happens to be the best mom in the whole world! When you look up the word style icon in the dictionary you will find my momther’s picture!

  66. Sometimes i get jealous of people who think of great ideas like this!!! My mom and I have often argued (in fun) about why she didnt think to save all her totally cool clothes from the 50s and 60s! She had some freaky awesome stuff!!! Thanks for brining my attention to this book. I’ll be ordering it even if I dont win it. Love it!

  67. Shannon H •

    Wonderful book idea! My mom would love this!

  79. Laura Elizabeth •

    What a perfect, perfect gift for my mom! 🙂 She doesnt ever feel stylish or pretty, and constantly talks about how she has the “mom fluff,” but I dont think there is anyone more beautiful! 🙂 This book showcases pretty mamas and I LOVE that idea!

  80. How adorable! Thanks for sharing.

  81. I want to share this great book with my mom. We only just started getting along and bonding over the last two years, and now all of those ‘Your mom is your best friend’ cliches are coming true.
    We have a photo taken shortly after I was born, with me in a powder pink romper, and Mom rocking some insane early 90s hair and an acid wash denim jacket. We were quite the pair.

  82. This is adorable — I love seeing this feature in Lucky Magazine. Fingers crossed! 🙂

  83. I’ve been seeing this book around alot lately and would love it in my library.
    I always look at photos of my mom and think about how beautiful and stylish she was and I miss her everyday.

  84. I’ve been thinking about getting this for my mom, I will whether I win it or not. She has definitely always been my style icon… especially when she used to wake me up for school and ask if I wanted to be called out to go shopping instead… best… mom… ever!

  85. I love the idea behind this book! Thanks for offering this giveaway! =)

  86. My mom and I love sharing your blog and always comment how beautiful how you and your family are 🙂 What a wonderful giveaway!! I am interested in this book since seeing a similar feature in Lucky magazine! Thank you so for also sharing the photos of you and your mother! So special <33
