What It Looks Like To Have Your Mom Dress You

Mothers Day Outfit: pattern mixing blouse, beige floral necklace, green hair

At 25-years-old, would you let your mom dress you? In honor of Mother’s Day coming up, I did just that and this is what happened.

I’ve gotten quite used to having my friends style outfits for me (Emily, Ruta, and Christina are all good examples) but this was the first time in almost 25 years that my mom got to do it!

When I was growing up, she was my first stylist. Her taste was questionable but it didn’t last long because as soon as I could figure out how to dress myself, I was off like a rocket with my own questionable outfit choices.

Proof of my mom’s early styling skills are on my Instagram (as seen here), from the the looks of things, her taste hasn’t changed much because I think she just put me in the exact same outfit!

Though she was overwhelmed with my huge collection of clothes, she did manage to find a lot of things she wanted me to wear.. as well as things she wanted to borrow later on.

Two things that caught her eye were this newly acquired striped skirt and this “tacky shirt” from my recent thrift haul. Before putting them together, she asked me “Isn’t mixing patterns the new thing?” and my reply was “I don’t know if it’s the thing but I know it’s my thing!”

She left the accessorizing up to me and so I went with a beige floral necklace, silver high heels, and chunky post earrings.

It took some nudging but I’m glad I was finally able to convince my mom to style an outfit for me to wear on my blog. Even though she’s not a fashionista herself, I think she secretly liked the whole process.

Thank you so much, mom, for always being my thrifting partner-in-crime and making sure I’ve got clothes that express who I am. Happy Mother’s Day!

Oh, and this final picture is a nod to how I posed in literally every photo taken of me before the age of 7. I’ve always had a flair for the dramatics.. and making sure my outfit was documented. 😉
