Years ago I was asked to come up with a tag-line for Rainbow’s End. I took some time to really look at who my customer was and what our “Flagstaff Fashion” truly looked like. Didn’t take me long to state the obvious… Fresh, Funky, and Fun. I love our unique sense of fashion that is laid back, a little mismatched with a lot of spunk. We know who we are and aren’t afraid to show it.
I see the Flagstaff style carry over to moms. Just because we have our kids in tow doesn’t mean we can’t look a little feminine and cute. Add a little floral, a belt and colorful “mom bag” and we are set to go! This season I am in LOVE with the floral pattern that seems to be everywhere. All shades of pink are hot right now, just in time for Valentine’s Day. Whether you are planning a family date or a special night out, the feminine touch is out there to remind everyone that we work hard and wear many hats, but we also like to feel flirty.

So, what do you wear for Valentine’s Day?
Think pink, floral and feminine. I love pulling a look together with a belt, bag and throw on a cute hat to really go over the top. Don’t forget the earrings! I love statement earrings that can add a pop of color. Rainbow’s End features earrings by Gleeful Peacock, they come in every shape, size, and color. These adorable statement pieces are super lightweight and under $20.
Is pink not your thing?
Have some fun with other colors and don’t be afraid to go big with a monochromatic look. Blue is always easy and goes with everything. Throw on some blue jeans and accessorize with a printed scarf and a bag with a fun color. Remember that just because you are a mom doesn’t mean you have to give up your style. Handbags come in all shapes, sizes, and colors and can be cute but also hold the snacks, water bottles, and even the toy cars.
Have some fun this year on February 14th! Hopefully, you have some inspiration to work your style. Be you and celebrate the LOVE you have for being a mom. This is your day, a chance to play with some fashion and find what sparks you.
Special Thanks to Tiffany Tcheng for her beautiful Photography Work!

Rainbow’s End began with mostly my creations and quickly expanded into other local or independent designers. I love fashion and if you ask my mom what she thought I would be doing this would be it! I love what I do and enjoy meeting my customers each and every day. I am thankful that I get to do something that I am passionate about. I love to be involved in my community and strive to volunteer as much as possible to help make a difference. You can find me running on the trails or reading a good book.
