First of all, I would like to greet all the super moms out there a Happy Mothers’ Day! Especially my mother – this strong and beautiful woman has always been the inspiration for my desire to explore the world and to experience what life has to offer. Being a traveler herself she taught me how to be appreciate, practical, and indepenent.
Where’s the best place to get inspiration when it comes to fashion?
For me, it would be in my mom’s photo album. I don’t claim to be stylish but the few times that I had to ‘dress to impress’ – the inspiration for my clothing was from her photographs. I was going through her album (or should I say Lookbook) and found these amazing pictures of her wearing the hippest clothes from the ’70 to the ’80s.
Fashion trends are always recycled after a period of time. Every era has its unique offering and becomes a phenomenon that stays for long, only to vanish the scene suddenly but it doesn’t end there. It’s sure to make a comeback sooner or later.
Here are some of my mom’s #OOTD:
The Classic White Top
White Tee Underneath her Jacket | Little White dress
Tube Top + High-Waisted Pants
3/4 Top or Long Sleeves + High-Waisted Jeans
Plain Tee + High-Waisted Jeans
Halter Neck Dresses
How I wish I have a keen eye for fashion just like my mom – unfortunately, I don’t. Most of what’s in my closet are jeans, shorts, and more shorts. I remember when I was 23 years old, I would still ask my mom for tips. “Maaa, unsa akong suoton?” (Muuum, what shall I wear) which she’d happily raid my closet then mix and match things. She’s the best! 💕
Not exactly an #OOTD but I would love to recreate this photograph someday.
