This photograph posted on Scott Shuman's The Sartorialista few weeks ago made me think about one of the biggest style influences in my life: my mother. Under the caption, "Like Mother, Like Daughter," this photo brings back memories made from each piece of clothing my mom and I bought together or from the style tips on the "basics" and the "classics" or from solid advice about being yourself no matter who is watching you. By no means a high maintenance fashion diva, my mother has influenced my style choices in so many ways. I still steal from her closet often, and will always be inspired by her classic chic: her personal style.
I just hope we look this fabulous someday. (Christmas present: giant "sunnies" a la Rachel Zoe?)
