Even though I didn't get to spend Mother's Day itself with my mom, I had the chance to see her for the entire week before and it was quite the treat. We celebrated early, and I had it in my mind that my mom needed a new handbag that would work with her personal style and that she would be able to carry it for years to come.
My mom and I took a drive down to my favorite mall, Bal Harbour Shops in North Miami Beach, to see what the Hermes store had in stock. There were no Birkins or Kellys on the shelves, but that's not what we were there for. I know my mom's style.
Just as we walked in I saw a grey Hermes Evelyne behind the glass and I saw the bag catch my mom's eye as well. I told her, "This is the bag you should get from Hermes!". She immediately knew it was her style as well, refined yet casual and everyday wearable. The SA pulled the bag out and right as my mom put it on, we knew it was a perfect fit.
While my mom had no idea this was my and Vlad's idea for her Mother's Day gift, she was thrilled to add a new bag to her collection. My style and my mom's style are similar, we love our jeans and cute tops. My mom always goes for bags that are easy to get in and out of and also are not super heavy. The Hermes Evelyne fits the bill as its sporty adjustable crossbody strap allows the bag to be carried over the shoulder or crossbody and the snap closure makes it easy to get in and out of the main compartment. There is an outside slit pocket for even quicker access as well.
Happy Mother's Day to my amazing mom and all the other mom's out there!
