When the average person thinks about Mother's Day, we picture a biological mom that brought us into the world; but that's not exactly everyone's reality. Think about specific circumstances; relatives or non-blood families might adopt some; some of us may have never had a mother due to a passing or an estranged relationship. What we do have in our lives are women who raised us. These women could be our grandmas, aunts, sisters, or family that chose us; a more accurate outlook and mantra to follow regarding family is that family is what we make it. This Mother's Day, honor your mom or the female role models who were there to act as a mother for you. My Melrose and Melrose Family Fashions take this time to celebrate these fantastic women by showing outfits that highlight female grace and beauty.

This week, we want to talk about festival fashion derived from the mainly bohemian style and more vibrant and colorful inspirations for events like Fiesta.
Essential fashion items don't have to be dressed in a drab and boring way, despite their affordability and versatility. For example, casually wear a simple, solid-colored shirt with denim or linen and accessorize with a belt, some jewelry, and a contrasting handbag.

My Melrose shows three basic top styles in brilliant and exciting spring colors like orange, kelly green, and red. This week's entry in the My Melrose Style Guide showcases different ways to spruce and freshen these bright basics using a variety of bottoms, shoes, and bags.
