Like Mother Like Daughter

This summer has gone by SO fast & I’ve been crazy busy with the kids since school’s been out. Now that it’s all finally come to an end, I’m thinking about back to school clothes and what my daughter will want to wear this fall.

The funny thing is that lately she been wanting to dress just like me! I never imagined this happening as I was such a rebel child and always wanting to be the exact opposite of my Mom & everyone else. But my daughter, now at 7 years old will sometimes study my outfits in the morning and then run to her room to find something similar, either in color or silhouette. And so far…most of the new fall clothes she has chosen are like mini versions of the things I’ve always worn. Lately we’re both liking a sort of ‘dressed up dolly rocker’ look.

Here’s some inspiration in case you want to match your fall looks with your daughter’s…..or vice versa…..

Getting Inspired #9- BLACK & WHITE

It’s often cold & cloudy here in the San Francisco Bay Area, even during summer, which makes it much easier to mix clothing from different seasons & to start thinking ahead towards the fall trends…..

The high impact black & white trend is bold & classic & something that can be worn now & later come fall. Here are some images to get inspired……
