April 21, 2022Trending

When it comes to Mother’s Day, there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to capturing the many facets of what it’s really like to be a mom. There’s the fun stuff, the not-so-fun stuff—and the total surprises in-between. But what does celebrating that minutiae of #MomLife look like when being a mother figure looks so different for everyone? Sometimes, a heartfelt thank-you is all it takes. And other times, it’s a token of appreciation in the form of comfort food, a night on the town, five minutes of silence, or something that sparkles.

For cofounder and editor Christene Barberich, it’s trusting that everything happens for a reason and finding time to dance along the way. In the video above, Barberich walks us through her motherhood journey as her and her three-year-old daughter Raffi style each other in our favorite Mother’s Day giftables. “The most helpful thing that someone told me once [was]: Whatever you choose will be the right thing. And I really held on to that… Parenting and becoming a mother is such an unknowable world and situation to be in because it’s completely different for everybody,” she explains. (It’s true.)

Watch on to hear more from the fashion savant about why jewelry is such a special part of one’s style identity and what makes inheriting and holding onto the right pieces so important to honoring life’s best moments.
