The ever-chic Marina Larroudé does double duty — not only is she Style.com’s Fashion Market Director but she’s a busy mother of two. Here with her son George and wearing Tory’s Henrietta skirt, she talks to us about her own Mother’s Day traditions, plus a few from her native Brazil.

My style mantra…
Always keep it personal — it’s about what you want to look like.

And personal styling trick…
Pick one item to be special/unique (skirt, dress, shoe) and keep the rest as simple as possible.

First fashion memory…
My jelly sandals when I was a kid.

A Brazilian Mother’s Day tradition…
Lunch with the family. We are all very family oriented.

Best Mother’s Day gift I’ve given…
A love letter.

And received…
A love letter.

My own Mother’s Day traditions…
Lunch with my kids and family, and activities in the afternoon (e.g. a ride in Central Park, spending time in the playground). No specific tradition… I guess I have to start one!

Best style advice from my mom…
Whenever hosting, tone down your style. It makes everyone more comfortable.

Best lesson learned from being a mom…
It’s more about what you do than what you say. You have to lead by example and give lots of attention

One lesson I hope to pass on to my kids…
I want them to know the difference between what’s right and wrong. If they get this right and work hard, they are set for life.
