These gorgeous Steve Madden Coral Suede Ankle Strap Sandals are JUST IN & they are beautiful! They are available for PRE-ORDER on as well as available in-store now! This is THE perfect shoe.  The heel, only 3 inches, isn’t too high at least for Steve Madden’s standards.  Both the front and ankle straps keep your foot in place so you can dance all night long without losing your shoes.  Your mom will love the pop of color – they are the perfect date night shoe!

These high heeled sandals go for $89.95, but if you find them in-store you might get lucky because I snagged them for $60 dollars.  What a steal!

If there has ever been a more perfect gift for anybody, especially your mom, it has to be an Alex & Ani bracelet.  Alex & Ani is such a staple with hundreds of different personalized charms for that special person in your life.  From feathers to Love charms, an Alex & Ani bracelet is sure to warm your mom’s heart.  Online at they have Mother’s Day charms for purchase, but with Mother’s Day right around the corner you’re better off going to Nordstrom where they sell them as well!

They range in price from $25 to $78 depending on bracelet charm & size.  They sell other merchandise such as, necklaces, rings and earrings, as well as, bags & accessories.

Completing the date night look, a makeup palette is just the thing your mom needs!  Whether she is a makeup junkie or hardly wears any, every woman needs a good makeup palette for a special occasion or everyday wear.  Since this is such a personalized gift, I’ll leave it up to you to choose colors and brands, but here are my two recommendations!

Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Palette

The Gwen palette has a good balance of shimmer and matte shades as well as a couple darker ones for adventurous night looks.  The golds and creme shades are my moms       go-tos!

Urban Decay Vice Palette

The Vice palette is for the risk taker, but it is still a beautiful palette and can create so many original and daring looks.
