I find lace to be very feminine and elegant, if it’s done in good taste of course.
Love the suits. This is more of my mothers style of dressing.
I love some of the accessories she wears. My Mother and I are big consumers of this. A girl can never have too much sparkle.

This is more of my style below; it’s a merge of leggings paired with high heel boots. The suit jacket and blouse is a bit of my mother’s fashionably influence of course. Ray-Ban or Sophia Lauren type of shades are influences from my husband, since he’s from the Mediterranean.
I never knew you can look so stunning being pregnant. This photo makes me think of Mother Earth.

This area was occupied by various cultures of indigenous peoples long before European contact. The name Suriname may derive from a Taino (Arawak-speaking) indigenous people called Surinen, who inhabited the area at the time of European contact.
Suriname was colonized by the English and the Dutch in the 17th century. In 1667 it was captured by the Dutch, who governed Suriname as Dutch Guiana until 1954. At that time it was designated as one of the constituent countries of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, next to the Netherlands and the Netherlands Antilles (dissolved in 2010). On 25 November 1975, the country of Suriname left the Kingdom of the Netherlands to become independent. A member of CARICOM, it is considered to be a culturally Caribbean country and has extensive trade and cultural exchange with the Caribbean nations.
