STYLE: My First Mother’s Day with Helen Ficalora

Happy Monday! I have a very special Mother’s Day post and GIVEAWAY for you today!

A few years ago, my in-laws bought me a gold Helen Ficalora “J” charm necklace for my birthday. I wear it ALL THE TIME! You have seen it on the blog several times before (see HERE, HERE, and HERE). It is such a versatile and timeless piece! Ever since, I have been a big fan of Helen Ficalora.

As you know, this year I will be celebrating my first Mother’s Day. While baby W isn’t here just yet, Helen Ficalora wanted to make my first Mother’s Day extra special. I was so touched when they sent this sterling silver “MOM” charm necklace. I love it! While it is a dainty piece, it really holds so much meaning. I am so excited to join the Mom club in a few short months.

When the necklace arrived, I knew I had to shoot it with my new white maxi dress (not maternity). And when Lauren, my FAVORITE photographer, suggested that we shoot at the Morristown Frelinghuysen Arboretum, I knew the photos would be gorgeous. All of the flowers are blooming right now! We shot right after work, during the golden hour. The lighting on these photos is STUNNING. I am obsessed!

If you are still looking for the perfect gift for your mother, mother in law, sister, or friend for Mother’s Day, there is still time to order the perfect Helen Ficalora charm necklace!
