UPDATE: This post previously ran on October the 15th but because our Mom’s are always a huge inspiration to us we have brought it back.
For the second post in the Our Moms series, I asked our assistant designer for color and print and FP Julia what they loved about their moms and their fashion style. The photos are beautiful, nostalgic and inspiring. Here’s our mom’s, an inspiration part two.

What I love about my mom is that she always has a natural style and looks beautiful even without make up. She’s the girl that’s everyone’s friends with (especially the boys) and is the best secret keeper. I’m in love with this picture because with her easy plaid shirt and tight jeans she is so Donna from That 70’s show. I admire her cool yet causal beauty that’s ready for any adventure. One of my favorite things about my mom is she wears what she loves and never lets anyone tell her different.

This is my favorite photograph of my mom, and I think it says a lot about who she was. She was a free spirit for sure, who left home at a young age to explore her freedom and independence. She loved spending time outside and she used to always tell me what a tomboy she was growing up and it was very evident in her style. She wore jeans almost every day, with the exception of some amazing vintage skirts and dresses. I love the bell bottoms she’s wearing in this photo, and her shoes, but unfortunately she got rid of most of her old clothing – she was incredibly giving and I would guess most of it went to charity because growing up we would routinely box up our old clothing that didn’t fit anymore and give it away. The one thing I do have is the hoodie she’s wearing in this photo and I’ll treasure it always. As she got older her jeans went from bell bottoms to a more high waisted, refined style that she often wore with blouses and blazers. She was a natural beauty who never wore makeup and had a contagious smile…unfortunately she’s no longer with us but she will never stop influencing not just on my style but the person that I am.
