Impeccable. Chic. Understated. Elegant.
My mum is all of the above. If there is one overriding influence to my style, it’s been my Mum. That “inner classic” that I mention on my About Me page? Yeah…that’s actually my Mum. Sat on my shoulder telling me to reign it in.
She’s always been classic, well polished and put together but not in a “look at me” kind of way, just in a completely understated way. She just knows how to put an outfit together.
Her timeless, co-ordinated (but strictly not matching) style has never faltered. I can’t ever (and I really mean ever) remember her walking out the house without make-up on.
Growing up and shopping together it was all about good buys that will last and clothes that won’t date. But boy do I thank her for that now.

Late 70’s. I love this pencil skirt, clutch and heels. So chic.
I’m not sure my Dad will thank me for this one but not to worry, it is Mother’s Day after all. There’s something a little Lady Di about this dress…
In 2008 as Mother of the Bride.
Happy Mother’s Day x
Love to know how your mum influenced your style…
