Me and my mom | Happy Mother’s Day 2017

Mother’s Day is this weekend in the U.S., so here’s another tribute to my beloved, color-coordinated mom! (Back in December, I also made a collage of outfits in my mom’s favorite colors, to honor my mom’s birthday.)

I’ve shown this picture of me and my mom, seen below, more than once on the blog, including in this fashion flashback post from Mother’s Day 2012. It’s one of the earliest photos of me and my mom together. It’s an oldie but a goodie! I’ve often joked about how others have literally mistaken me for my mom when they come across this photo — asking, “Whose baby is Jennifer holding?” — when the baby in that picture is actually me! 😉

This time, I thought I’d actually do a collage of me and my mom. I’ve always felt proud to resemble the women in my family — inside and out! ♥ (You can also see here in this post about how much I also physically resemble my maternal grandmother. A strong line of women — and genes! 😉 )

And yes, the skirt I’m wearing in this pic is another cotton maxi skirt my mom had around this time period — and then passed on to me years ago! I love wearing clothing and jewelry that my mom used to wear, as it’s like I get to carry a little extra bit of her around with me every day. ♥

Happy Mother’s Day to my mom — and mothers the world over!

    What a great photo Jen! You do look just like your mom, & your grandma, too. Thanks for sharing. My love of fashion came to me via my mom, too. 🙂

    Happy Mother’s Day to your mum! You’re right, you do look so alike! It’s wonderful you can wear some of your mum’s old pieces too! I have a few pieces from my mum in my wardrobe and they are very special to me, even if I don’t always wear them.

    Hope you have had a wonderful weekend 🙂
