Mom Style II


    Hello readers! It's a cozy-inside, wet-outside winter evening here on the Pacific coast, and this blogger is tired. I started a new part-time job yesterday, which I am enjoying so far. I'm also anticipating being in a wedding this weekend (yay!), which will account for some more busyness. Life continues on with its expected and unexpected events. It's all good stuff, but it takes up time and energy. At times like these, it's nice to have some material saved back for blogging...


   Today, that material happens to be a few outfits Mom has worn (and yes, I am planning to get back on track with my outfit posts soon ;) )! Though Mom and I have different fashion senses, we appreciate each others' style and both give tips to the other person. My mom has an adult child, but that doesn't mean she has to dress in a dull manner. Instead, she displays her own unique personality through her clothing, while still remaining age-appropriate.

    Mom says of her style:  "As I've aged, my style changes periodically. Outfits that worked for me a few years ago no longer work. I now prefer to wear only what I feel good in and makes me happy. I've pared down my closet quite a bit and it's very refreshing to have only clothes that I really like. I do have some grubbies for dirty work, but that's a necessity." Way to go, Mum!

Outfit I Details: Owl sweater ~ Sears; skirt~thrifted; scarf ~ gift from a friend who went to Jerusalem; boots ~ new from Hot Knots $90
Outfit II Details: Bird -print top ~ gift; tank top ~ Rue 21; skirt ~ old - thrifted; flats ~ Ross
Outfit III Details: dress ~ bought new from Kohl's; denim jacket ~ thrifted; shoes ~ thrifted


   Do you like Mom's outfits?
How do you think your style reflects your stage in life?


Buy the truth, and do not sell it,
Also wisdom and instruction and understanding.  
The father of the righteous will greatly rejoice,
And he who begets a wise child will delight in him. 
 Let your father and your mother be glad,
And let her who bore you rejoice.
 Proverbs 23:23-25

  6. Dear Paige, congratulations on your part-time job. I agree with your Mom about wearing clothes that make you feel good in and makes you happy. It gives you a positive attitude and a good way to start your day with confidence. I enjoyed looking at your Mom's 3 outfits. They each looked very nice on her. I prefer the 2nd the best. I could see myself wearing that cute outfit. I think it is wonderful that you can share your outfit post with your Mom and have a common enjoyment together. Blessings, Stephanie M.
