The Kendra Gives Back party benefiting the Wisconsin Philharmonic is coming up in less than a week! If you're not sure about what to get yet, I thought I'd share some Mother's Day gift ideas I came across while visiting the store recently.

Two of my favorite things: Kendra Scott and the Wisconsin Philharmonic are collaborating, and I could not be more excited! Kendra Scott has been hands down, my favorite jewelry designer since she opened her first Chicago store in 2015. Ever since I purchased my first n...
