Like Mother Like Daughter

From handbags to napkins, my mom and I always seem to pick out the very same things. I don't think this is a coincidence. It's pretty clear that my mother is my tastemaker. As a teenager I remember patiently waiting while she tried on pair after pair of  Stubbs & Woottons during spring break... who knew years later I would be trying to sneak them out of her closet! Did your mother's taste shape your style?

I was 7 pair deep in the velvet Stubbs before I finally realized they ran 1/2 a size too small, unlike the true fit needlepoints. All 7 pair have new homes in my cousin and niece's closets. May be time to start the collection anew...XXOO

ps...finally nabbed the black and gold Napoleanic needlepoint bees and looove them :)

My grandfather (rip) and dad are responsible for me. Including style...but in many other ways as well. Cool kicks, btw...

How sweet! I definitely take after my mom ... she has a great collection of Lilly shifts from the 90s - thank goodness we wear the same size!

That's adorable and I bet she simply loves that you take after her.

There is no better complement to your mom, than to say that she is your tastemaker - very, very cool! I hope to be able to be a positive influence on my daughter's style some day :)

My mother influenced my taste in apparel AND interior design. And more, no doubt. I'm sure if I took the time, I could come up with quite a list!

So cute! I love how you guys have the same cut pants on too. My mom has a great style and we dress a lot a like. She is 100% responsible for my expensive taste.

Hehehe, I love it! What's funny is my mom is not very girlie at all, and well--you know I am! She actually comes to me more for fashion advice than I do to her!
