A dress from my Momma...

Hello everyone!

I hope you had a wonderful three day weekend!

This morning I awoke with lots of energy and tons of creative inspiration. One of the creative inspirations was to participate in the "Your Mom Style" link up party over at Rouge and Whimsy.

It's a link up party celebrating moms and their style!
Here is what Erika had to say about it, "Your interpretation can be broad -- a post where you share photos of your mom's rocking style, try to recreate your mom's look, or even write from her perspective. It's up to you!"

From the moment that I first read Erika's post that announced that she would be hosting this link up party I knew that I wanted to link up and what I wanted to wear.

Many years ago my Momma gave my sister and I one of her old dresses. She wore it  in the mid 80s and purchased it while engaged to my Daddy.

It has sweet yellow buttons all the way down the front, a lovely print, and of course...shoulder pads!

Here are a few things she said about it when I asked her what she had been drawn to when she purchased the dress.

-Her favorite flowers are roses, so, she really liked the print.


-She liked how feminine it was.


-She loved that it was twirl-y. (I very much agree on that!)

Rose Dress3

I've always liked having old dresses from my Momma. When I wear that rose dress, one of her old piano recital dresses, and such it feels so special. I think part of it is that I've been able to wear the items or try them on when I'm about the same age that she was when she wore them. And, there is just something generationally amazing about that!
