This Mother’s Day, treat your mum to a gift that is as unique as she is. I’m very excited to share that I have joined St Collins lane as a Style Ambassador and I had the pleasure of visiting a few stores last week to curate a gift guide featuring my favourite items designed to suit all types of mums.
Is your mum a glitzy mum or is she all about comfort? Is she a colourful mum or all about the modern basics?
“My style has changed a little since becoming a mum but I have always loved fashion and that will never change… I guess the main difference now is I don’t have a lot of time in the morning to put together really elaborate outfits or sift through an huge wardrobe of clothes. I prefer to have a smaller wardrobe and invest in capsule pieces that I really love.”
THE GLITZY MUM – CERRONE
The glitzy mum is easy to spot thanks to her love of things that shine bright. She loves to make a statement ensuring there’s never a dull moment when she’s around.
The perfect present for this mum is something that is equally brilliant. Turn to Cerrone’s Carmela Collection – a range that remains timeless yet versatile for every-day wear. Hand-crafted at Cerrone’s Sydney workshop by Carmela herself, this detachable tassel necklace of stunning fresh-water pearls and silver cubic zirconia and is something that your mum will treasure forever.
THE ON-THE-GO MUM – ECCO
For the mum who’s always on the go, an oversized bag that fits everything is a must. My pick is this bag from ECCO. It’s a softly-constructed bag featuring a detachable, adjustable shoulder strap and baby ottoman lining. This carry all will take your mum from work to the weekend in no time.
THE TRENDSETTER MUM – JO MERCER
The trendsetter mum knows her fashion inside out. Being a classic mum myself, I love Jo Mercer for its trendy and quality pieces. These boots are classic in shape and the colour is on trend. Boasting a small heel as well, they’re stylish and comfy enough for the mum that needs to run around.
THE MODERN MUM – CUE
Offering timeless work-wear and classic staples, she’ll be obsessed with anything that CUE has to offer. Made from European floral print fabric, we love this classic shirt that features a contrast necktie, a cutaway peplum hem and a contrast button cuff detail. Effortlessly versatile, she’ll be able to dress up during the week for or pare back with denim jeans for the weekend.
THE PARISIAN MUM – SANDRO
The Parisian mum encompasses grace and elegance. Her style is effortless and timeless – think Breton stripes, classic blazers and that ‘je ne sais quoi’ allure. For an outfit that will seamlessly fit in her wardrobe, this look that I’m wearing from French favourite Sandro ticks all the boxes.
THE COLOURFUL MUM – REVIEW
For the mum that paints the town red, Review knows how to cater for her every need. The outfit that I’m wearing packs a punch and will live up to your mum’s colourful character. View their collection for more feminine shapes and playful prints that will mostly certainly tickle her fancy.
THE COMFY MUM – UGG
For the comfy mum, UGG has all the answers to your gifting needs. The Dakota Stripe slipper adds a touch of luxury to her comfort. Crafted from water-resistant suede with the softest wool lining and durable rubber outsole, this moccasin will keep her cosy through the winter season.
THE HIGH TEA MUM
For the mum that enjoys the finer things in life, take her for a high tea experience like no other. In the comfort of Runya’s Room’s lush 70s-style lounge, she’ll be able to enjoy a spread of decadent treats and extravagant sandwich platters. It’s the culinary delight that she’ll deserve.
THE RADIANT MUM
The radiant mum knows how to look after herself. With the help of Australian Skin Clinics, she can keep on shining and rejuvenate her skin with micro-dermabrasion sessions or relaxing facials. Treat her with a voucher this Mother’s Day for a gift that she can choose herself.
THE CLASSIC MUM
The classic mum lives in comfort with her Birkenstocks. Keep her on point and update her wardrobe with some chic metallic footwear. This rose gold style will match everything she wears and there’s no doubt she’ll wear them to death.
THE ALL AMERICAN MUM – COACH
The All American Mum loves her red, whites and blues and is all about the classics mixed in Americana charm – think fringing, suede and lots of denim. For a customised present that your mum will cherish, look no further than Coach’s monogramming service. With the purchase of any leather good, receive a complimentary hangtag monogramed with her initials at Coach’s Craftsmanship Bar.
THE MASTERCHEF MUM – 70 GRAMS
Does your mum know her tagliatelle from her tortigliono? Her cannoli from her cannelloni? She must be the Masterchef mum.
Spoil her on an all-Italian experience at 70 Grams. With a touch of New-York cool, their signature 22-inch pizza is a crowd pleaser that won’t disappoint. The menu covers all the staples such as a classic Carbonara Rigatoni or traditional Bolognese Linguine. Finish on a Tuscan Prosecco or Veneto Pinot Grigio for a feast that is sure to leave mum smiling.
