Volkswagen Up! Advertisement Featuring a Tall Woman

Let’s face it there aren’t many commercials featuring tall women unless

a. they over overly sexualized   or
b. they are making fun of us.

But, I have to give kudos to Volkswagen as their new commercial for the Volkswagen Up is super cute. Take a look!

For the Ladylike Mom

I love this look! If your mom is prim and proper, this may be up her alley.  I love the classic and pretty lines of the blazer, the not-too-blingy pearl studs, the bows and the patent leather of the flats, and of course the pop of color in that darling clutch-which by the way proves that mom doesn’t take herself too seriously!

For the On the Go Mama

I’ve featured this jacket before but couldn’t resist featuring it again.  For the on the go mom, a stylish and comfy jacket is essential.  Paired with this fabulous watch (because you know-she needs to keep her appointments), the fun and colorful iPad case, and the fresh mint comfy kicks, it’s even more amazing than on its own!

For the New Mommy

Do you have a new mama in your life?  Maybe your wife, daughter, daughter-in-law, sister, or BFF?  These pieces are perfect for a new mommy.  The pants couldn’t look more comfortable (but still cute) and she’ll thank you for those velvety flip flops when she’s pacing with baby at 2:00 am.  Have the pretty necklace personalized with the new babe’s name and she just might tear up!  And isn’t it great that diaper bags aren’t covered with pictures of Winnie the Pooh anymore?!  I have a Skip Hop bag (2 actually) and I love them!  This one is stylish but with dots in grey, classic enough that it would suit nearly any taste.
