When it comes to my mom and personal style where do I even begin? I’ve written about her before (and even my abuelita) and how her dressing me as a kid taught me about fashion. I mean…she styled me for the first 18 years of my life—and I practically fought her every step of the way. But, that doesn’t mean I didn’t admire the way she dressed. She has and will always be my style inspiration. In fact, when I chose this dress from Gwynnie Bee, I had her in mind.
I love flipping through my dad’s photo albums and finding photos of my mom from the 70’s. As you can tell, she has always been a fun and free spirit. But, there was something a little different about her in that era. I can’t really pinpoint it, but it makes me wish we were friends back then. I think we would’ve been besties. Just look at her on her wedding day. A floral crown? Work it mama!
Today, her personal style is still fearless and it always represents who she is. Let’s just say, the outfit she recently wore on my birthday consisted of a graphic tee with the word “LOVER” emblazoned across the chest and spiked shoulders. Yes, she loves making a statement and I wouldn’t expect anything less from her.
Just like that…my mom has inspired me to take chances when it comes to my personal style. Instead of playing it safe, I once again stepped out of my style comfort zone with her in mind. I had to go with the Sangria Palm Print Blocked Blouson Dress from Gwynnie Bee. I know she’ll appreciate this dress, since red is her favorite color. And I couldn’t pass up the print and the navy color blocking.
Mom, I want you to know that you have influenced me in more ways than you can imagine. Thank you for always encouraging me to be a little more daring in all aspects of my life. I appreciate every thing you have done for me and the love you have showered me with since the day I was born. I love you so much.
