While I am celebrating Mother’s Day in person with Mom (the most important way to celebrate if you ask me), I wanted to celebrate her here on the blog as well. So instead of focusing on my fashion today, I’m focusing on our fashion.
I wouldn’t necessarily say I got my sense of style from my mom. Sure I loved trying on her work clothes as a kid, stomping around the house in too big high heels and blazers, sometimes while trying to maintain a hold on our cat. Yeah, we used to have a cat, waaaaaayyyyyy back when.
She had really cool style back in the 90s, and it’s probably too bad she doesn’t have any of those clothes anymore.
The 2000s were not the best style time for either of us, as we succumbed to trends and wearing clothes because other people did. It’s not a phase I am happy with or wanted to save any pieces from, choosing to dress myself because Britney Spears or my favorite newscaster might wear something – quite the combination.
Now I dress for me, buying and wearing things that I love just because I do. I think Mom does the same thing for the most part, though I am the one who finds a lot of the pieces and suggests them to her so she can pick what she wants.
I wear more bright colors than Mom, though she’s trying to incorporate more color into her wardrobe, and because we aren’t the same age, that sometimes steers us toward different silhouettes. I do often find that the things we choose aren’t similar, per se, but are complementary.
Like so many mothers and daughters, we sometimes steal each other’s clothes. Though a lot of our pieces aren’t interchangeable, sweaters, some skirts, and even a couple dresses are fair game and worn by the first person to grab them 😉
It’s fun to get to be an adult and still be inspired by, get dressed up with, and go out for fun with my mom. Not everyone has that opportunity, and I’m lucky that I do.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there, rocking your own style <3
