Mother's Day & Multiples...

Hey Family!

This mother's day weekemd in America brougjt us to several events. I was honored for the work that I do in my community and for being a single mom who is makimg it happen. Zi'Joy's and I had a wonderful time. It was a casual dressy event. The weather here 8n the Chi has been so up and down. We had rain showers amd lows of 40's so I dressed us accordingly.

So for this event we wore a soft pastel rose pink tiered sleeve top it's so pretty I had a little V cut out in a bag and I wore black velvet pants for Zion Joy I essentially put her in denim peplum top and black velvet pants cuz it was warm and serviceable. And I think it was pretty.

The next day was Mother's Day and to be honest with you it was quite a sad day. I received news that my cousin was 41 was 3 years younger than me have passed away. I loveed him like a brother and so when I receive the call in the middle of the night my world is just shaken. So to be honest with you we had stayed up all night anx did not feel lile making an effort to dress.

This is where my lo e of multiples come in. So we wore the same pants to a different place and with a different set of people. Same black velvet pants and same tops for the both of us as tje day before in grey. For Zi'Joy grey pepulm and for me the same exact top.

No fuss no muss head wrap and hat for Zi'Joy. And we were on our way.

After church the Sun came out and we were blessed with a beautiful day. No need for our wraps or

My daughter's learning Center created this beautiful hand print of her hands and a poem. It was just the perfect thing for a 1st Mother's day gift.

I hope you all had a great weekend and happy Mother's Day to you all.

As always be well on your fashionable journey.

    Ledonna, I'm so sorry to hear about your cousin. Gone far too young; so cruel and there is just no getting your head around it. Lots of love to you and your family during a painful time. xoxox

    Happy mother's day to a gorgeous mom - I just couldn't love you more in every shade of pink you put on ... gorgeous. And of course, little Zi is looking beautiful!

    I’m sorry about your cousin. It’s always shocking when someone so young passes away. You look fab in the pink top. ZJ is adorable no matter what she wears. I particularly like her little hat, though.

    Wow, sorry about your cousin. Such a shock.

    Talk about an up-down weekend LEDONNA.
    My sympathies to you and your family on the loss of your cousin- yes- way too young.With all that is going on in the family with illness, death and everyone depending on you- please remember to take care of you and don't let yourself get too rundown.
    But congratulations for being honored for your service to the community- it is so nice to be recognized.
    As always the outfits in your Mother - Daughter pictures always brings a smile to my face. There is nothing wrong with duplicates- especially when the tops are a good look on you in both pink and gray.
    BTW I love the hat she is wearing.  She looks awesome in it.
    Hang in there lady!

    So sorry about your cousin. Sudden loss is such a shock to the system along with the sadness and grief any loss brings. You both look absolutely fabulous in every way though.

    I’m so sorry to hear about the passing of your cousin. My sincere condolences to you.

    On your first Mother’s Day you looked beautiful in that pink top, Ledonna, and I just love Zi’Joy in her sassy cap.

    Big hug to you— I also had a weekend that was more grief than celebration, but it’s possible to find some joy through FASHION as you know.
