Lavender & Lace!




Hello! So I was looking at these pictures and thinking of how much I am looking more like my mom the older I get.  Even more, is acting more like her and enjoying dressing up and wearing more makeup.  Growing up, I'd liked fashion but never cared too much for makeup, heels, lace, and my mother always wondered why I was not like her in that aspect.  Let's just say she is happy to see the transition.  Besides the exterior, I think more like her and understand now why she was so  protective when I was growing up.  I appreciated her being that way especially when I listen to some of my teen patients and advise them.  I guess I'm becoming my mother in a way.  Do you ever feel that way?

Lace has been trendy and I liked this skirt because of its length and colors.  Although I liked the colors, I was indecisive as to what to pair it with.  I considered my go to choice a black top and heels but wanted to keep the look summery, so I paired it with my lavender shirt, nude bag and heels.









Skirt- Zara (here), Shirt- Express (here), Heels- BCBG (here), Clutch- Gift (similar).

Thank you for visiting!

    When I was younger, I thought my mother was way too protective of us, but now that I have kids, I totally now understand the reasons behind her actions!
