Remember when you were little and you got into your mom's closet? To this day I am still stealing my mom's things. And I know I'm not the only one. It's a mother-daughter tradition.
This phenomenon begs the question: are our moms are simply fashionable? Well, maybe not. But the fact is, no one can pass up a 24/7 thrift store in the comfort of their own home... especially since it's free.
I love my mom's sweaters. Sadly I'm still unable to fit in them, but that's not about to stop me. I just make it work. Oversized sweaters were invented for a reason! Take advantage of that.
In this photo I am wearing my mom's pale pink sweater with her gold bracelet. Since the sweater kept falling off my shoulders, I used fabric tape to stick it in place. I swear this is a thing. I got mine from Target and let me tell you, it is a LIFESAVER.
Since oversized flannels are perpetually in, therein lies yet another reason to delve into your mother's closet instead of going into Brandy Melville and spending $50; just take a quick trip to a charming little place called Mom's Closet where everything is always 100% off.
In this photo, I am wearing my mom's pink flannel, my crop top from Hollister, and leggings from Aerie.
95% of the jewelry I wear is my mom's. Basically I can wear all of my mom's jewelry except her rings, since I have the skinniest fingers known to man. Seriously, look for me in the Guinness Book of World Records. But other than that, it's like jewelry wonderland in there.
Here I'm wearing my mom's beautiful gold necklace and my slightly cropped flannel from Abercrombie & Fitch.
If you're lucky, you can also borrow your mother's shoes. My mom has the best shoes ever, but there's one minuscule problem... she is a 9 and I am a 7. I swear my mother planned this and I cry every day. But to those of you who can fit in your mom’s shoes:
I'm so jealous.
