Elizabeth Cole Jewelry Tiana Earrings, $473. Available at ElizabethColeJewelry.com
Trend-savvy moms would love to give their outfits some bloom-bloom-pow with these striking earrings, featuring glass stones and Swarovski crystals arranged to resemble vibrant flowers. At the top of each earring, ruby-colored, almond-shaped crystals encircle a bright yellow, faceted, round, prong-set glass stone, mimicking the look of a chrysanthemum. Below these, teardrop-shaped Swarovski crystals in a bright lilac shade are positioned in a fanned-out shape below a glass yellow stone, resembling the lower section of a purple China Aster bloom. Gold-toned metal pieces, as well as tangerine-colored glass stones and navy-toned crystals — all resembling petals — are layered atop each other to create the feeling of dense foliage along the bottom section of each linear design. To add a playful feel, each statement earring is further adorned by a trio of playful tassels that swing in the breeze.
Tory Burch Small Bermuda Bag, $795. Available at ToryBurch.com
Raffia, embroidered linen, seersucker, macramé, and wool plaid purses with oversize wooden handles comprised an entire handbag category in the ’70s and ’80s: Bermuda bags.

Plastic stones in emerald green, luminous pink, and opalescent white work as visual exclamation points, bringing attention to key elements of the opulent design while adding a touch of bling. But the most important design element, of course, are the leather handles, which are expertly cut to resemble wooden ones.

Lano Lemon Hand Cream Intense, $14.95. Available at LanoLips.com
Who could’ve guessed that the remedy to dry hands, cracked cuticles, and chapped lips would involve sheep? Yet that’s what Lano is quickly proving to the world. Each of the brand’s products contains lanolin, a greasy substance normally found on the coats of sheep and carefully extracted from their wool after these animals undergo their annual shearing. Not only does lanolin feature a molecular structure akin to that of the human sebum, but it can hold up to 200% its weight in water, making it a choice humectant. The Lano Lemon Hands Cream Intense will therefore perform its own version of CPR on even the driest of hands, while coating them with a sweet and just slightly zesty citrus fragrance. Also formulated with shea butter, cocoa butter, grape seed oil, and soybean oil, this rich hand cream works wonders on hands that have taken a beating after countless dish scrubbing sessions, stain-removing missions, kitchen counter wipe-downs, and laundry loads — basically, the hands of any mom!
