There's no question that I owe a lot of myself to my mom -- from my style chops to my innate curiosity of the world. My mom is an engineer/math genius, a foodie, a fellow lover of the color pink, a fashion maven, and half of a duo that have supported and encouraged every wacky aspiration or foray into non-traditional hair color that I have ever held. Living across the country means I haven't gotten to spend too many recent Mothers' Days with my matriarchs, but I'm doing my best to show Mrs. Mason how appreciated she is from afar. For the lady who brought me into the world, I'm sending a mixture of handcrafts (and by that I don't mean a card made with macaroni or a book of coupons, but those are good, too), fresh blooms, and a pair of sunnies; she's notorious for having the best shades, and never shies away from bold colors or shapes. I've had my eye on these Rayban Aviators that are a total classic while donning a subtly blush hue, as well as these badass D&G mosaic frames - both of which are complementary to my mom's style. If you're browsing for a gift, Sunglass Hut has a great interactive program on their site to virtually shop for sunnies with your mom; it's both adorable and an awesome way to do some mother-daughter shopping regardless of distance. In addition to a love of accessories, my mom and I share a favorite flower (peonies, natch), and I'm sure our love for macarons (her favorite are the coconut ones from 'Lette, who now ship nationally) is also linked to our genetics.
