Going through some old photos, I came across one in which my Mom was wearing a stunning knit pleated midi skirt with a turtleneck, looking ever so beautiful. That style resonated with me so much and I felt this immediate urge to re-create it for the blog. Instead of the turtleneck I used a v-neck sweater with a shirt under it. The neck style of the sweater and the black bow do match the look I was going for, and the two elements also allowed me to play with prints and patterns, which is what I love to do when I get to work with layers.
I was thrilled with the results and Alex did a wonderful job again with the photography (I'm really thankful!). I'm planning to select a few more of my Mom's photos and try to re-create some more of her looks. She has always been my inspiration! I remember being drawn to her closet when I was a kid, fascinated by how she would organize her clothes (by color), by her collection of scarves and the smell of perfume when I'd open the door to that magical place. I would try on all her clothes and parade in the living room, to the amusement of my Dad... Sweet, sweet memories.
I hope you guys will enjoy the post! It really touched a sweet spot for me :)!
