My mom has tons of confidence. She can make anything look good and she does. She has, what I like to call, her own trade mark. Only my sisters and I know about this signature look. Her ultimate problem with her wardrobe is that it “doesn’t match”. I don’t know if it is a 90s thing or what, but she dresses very colorful and everything matches. I love it. My sisters and I shake our heads at her outfits when she exclaims, “but it doesn’t match!”. She is from the east coast so every statement is loud. I reply with a “yes, it does. Everything matches with jeans, ma!”.
Here’s another boy story. A guy I was with noticed I wear a lot of black. He said, “I think my girlfriend is depressed…. you wear a lot of black!” This makes me laugh out loud, because it is true I wear a lot of black. Maybe it is because the color black a safe color. I am not sure. If I do add a pop of color it is because of my mom’s fashion influence. This is one of the many reasons I call my blog TheFullColorLife.
Here is an outfit in honor of my mom.
My Mom’s favorite thing to do when my sister and I come home from school is take us to the thrift. She loves finding brand name clothes there. I think its the chase and excitement. She would wear these shoes with a peach dress or blue pants with a blue or green top.
I have no idea why this hat was in her closet. It might be my dad’s but I think it works.
She probably bought this purse to go with shoes the same exact color. She loves smaller purses, but only when she and my dad go for a night in Chicago.
