WMMW (what my mom wore!) 09.19

Just had to share what my lovely mom is wearing today because I love it so much! Fitted black and white floral turtleneck underneath a knit black harem jumpsuit and low-heeled booties, complete with chunky pearl/rhinestone/silver necklace, sparkly bangles, and cheerful pink lipstick. Go Team Maximal+Dramatic (see where I get it?) :D

(Mom often runs her outfits by me for feedback and ideas which is lots of fun; I really enjoy helping her come up with outfits to wear her beloved pieces in a current way as well as how to maximize impact of any new purchases, though she's always had a great fashion eye so I don't know that she really needs my help! I'm also her trend reporter. Earlier today she was wearing a silky apple green pleated bell-sleeved blouse with lace trim and gray jeans. As she says in Arabic, "Moda!" -- On trend! ^^)

    Hue proof that the (stylish) apple doesn't fall far from the tree! It's easy to see that you inherited the style gene from your fabulous Mum, Aida. Love the jumpsuit with the patterned top and maximal necklace. On trend, a little avant-garde and super, super fab!!

    Wow, cannot believe hogy K2K is this! Secret revealed! Now we all found out who the fab daughter takes after!

  • Suz replied 3 years ago

    Well, now we know that fashion runs in the family! Super cool outfit! I note and mark your mom's love of light coloured bling and silver sparkle, which she may have passed down to her daughter -- or did it work the other way around? What a fashion forward fun outfit. (Psst, Aida's mom, please join us here!! ) 

  • Sara L. replied 3 years ago

    She looks great!  I love the blingy necklace with the turtleneck. 

  • texstyle replied 3 years ago

    Fantastic! This is so great to see Aida. My mom would never in a million years consider anything remotely trendy. It's really too bad because it would be so much fun to see.

  • MsMary replied 3 years ago

    WHAT!!?!?! Now we know where you get your fab sense of style!!!

  • Aida replied 3 years ago

    Thank you ladies for all the lovely comments!! Mom and I enjoyed reading them together this morning, she was very flattered. She did ask why I didn't list her age (!) and asked that I mention she's "my mother's age" which is 67 ;) And also that she had a white blazer which she popped over the top of the whole thing.

    UmmLila, my folks knew right away, without me even telling them, that your MIL is Egyptian ^^

    Suz, I definitely got all the color/sparkle/dramatic/maximal from her!
