Style Inspiration from my Mum

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.

My Style Inspiration, my Mum

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…

    What a gorgeous post Laura…my Mum & you’re mum definately know a thing or two when it comes to style. I grew up admiring her impeccable appearance & so grateful to have this quality of hers in me. Even now, her make-up is on, her hair is done & she’s looking gorgeous as always!

    Happy Mothers Day my lovely friend

      Thank you Jo! It’s amazing to have a style inspiration as your mum isn’t it? I bet that doing her hair, make up and looking as stylish as ever is testament to your mum’s strength of character and will no doubt lift her own spirits too knowing that she looks good! Lots of love xx

    What a lovely surprise from my favourite daughter!
    I’m not sure where you got those photos from – I thought they were hidden away!
    It’s good to know that all that nagging about style, less is more etc etc has paid off and you now have your own effortless elegance.
    A bit of a love-in today but it is Mother’s Day after all! xx
