We’ll always be grateful for our mothers’ unwavering love and support — and, most likely, for passing down their chic sense of style. Although floral bouquets are always a staple (PC Tip: Grange Hall offers super-cool arrangements; call 214.443.0600 to place an order), for Mother’s Day this year — Sunday, May 14 — we’ve assembled a few items, including a luxe brunch and a fun fête, into a curated gift guide for the special leading lady in your life.
1. Available in several colors like cotton pink, cobalt, poppy red, and navy, this Tory Sport nylon jacket is parfait for a mom on the go. Folding easily into a small pouch, the jacket can be easily tossed into a tote bag on her way out the door. $150, at Tory Sport, NorthPark Center.
2. Pearls are timeless. Not only is this David Yurman Solari Pearl bracelet elegant, but 20 percent of its sales go towards the Best Buddies Organization’s contributions to creating opportunities for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. $950, at David Yurman boutique at NorthPark Center, Neiman Marcus.
