In our What to Wear to Mother’s Day Brunch “Pin It To Win It” contest we invited readers to unleash their creative side by designing Polyvore creations for outfits for women over 40 that were ideal for Mother’s Day brunch, whether going out on the town or celebrating at home with the family.
Today, we are featuring the grand prize winner and the first and second runners up!
Winners were chosen based on the number of repins each collage garnered. The pins that were most popular with our Pinterest followers were the ultimate winners. Only the collages were considered during judging. Pictures of individual items were not considered. Each winner deserves a big round of applause for her wonderful collage.
Grand Prize Winner ~ “Casual Brunch” by Emily Cromer
It looks like Emily was inspired by both the bold black & white and the zigzag trends that have been so prominent this spring. For her creation she chose a flowing maxi dress which she paired with a jean jacket and casual black, braided sandals, complete with silver metal studs. A sleek clutch and silver hoop earrings uplevel this casual, boho, Mother’s Day look. I can see this outfit working for Mother’s Day brunch at a trendy outdoor urban café.
Emily, congratulations for being our grand prize winner!
