Capturing Kate's Magic




Kate Hudson actor and fashion maven on the red carpet and in daily life recently made headlines in a fresh and fun outfit for a Memorial Day 2015 weekend bash in Malibu, California.  The fashion ensemble is Audreyesq classic with flirty pants, swimsuit underneath, creamy loose sweater, whimsical tote, flashy eyewear, pointy toed pumps and finishing with an engaging smile.  The ultimate easy breezy outfit, which works all summer long.  Let's deconstruct this ensemble and mix with a bit of Audrey that can be effortlessly yet glamorously  worn over again during the dog days of summer.

Mothers Day is this weekend and with this day it is interesting to ponder about the essence of what makes a mother, mom and a wise woman.  Mothers can guide children, can provide protection and can remain a constant force and role model to a child for life.  The word "can" is used since not all are graced with an inspirational and caring birthing mother yet this does not stop a child to form other "mother" attachments.   It is the beauty and desire of most women to provide wisdom to the next generation and to understand that the path of being a mother comes in many forms which does not always include birthing a child. There are all types of mothers ranging from women who give birth, adopt, stepmothers or being fortunate enough to be a second mom to their friends children.   The tapestry is breathtaking and fulfilling for women making choi…
