I absolutely love this photo of my mom. She looks so happy, like she's really enjoying life and whatever is happening the day this photo was taken.
I also love her outfit. I love how fashion makes a circle, and that I could wear those clothes today and not look like a total tool. The blouse has the simplest, yet bold, pattern on it, the skirt is such a fantastic blue, and that bag -- don't get me started on that bag.
When I was younger, my mom had saved a bunch of clothes from her younger years that she really wanted me to wear. I wore then a couple of times, but didn't like them because they weren't what was popular at the time. Like many things in life, I wish that I had enjoyed them while I could wear them. If I could fit into them now, I know that they would be the cutest outfits ever.
I wonder if she still has that shirt and skirt...
Hey, Mom? :)
