Ageless style

Sunday, October 02, 2016

My mom Phyllis and I recently shopped at a nearby mall. I ran into Loft to spend a gift card (that was burning a hole in my pocket) and found this fabulous knit dress.

I love the texture, colors, and the weight of the fabric--no cling hurray!
I love this dress paired with tights and ankle boots, but I would also wear it with flats or even suede wedges.
I layered a soft knit moto jacket over it and also plan to wear it with my leather jacket--a cashmere cardigan would look great too. Don't you love versatility?
Wearing Ecco black ankle boots (super comfy line) similar HERE  HERE and HERE.  Similar black bag HERE.
I didn't plan to also wear a necklace from Loft--it just happened! I bought this gunmetal chain necklace several years ago, but I found some similar styles HERE and HERE.
 The thing that REALLY surprised me about this dress was that my mom loved it too and she actually bought it! 
Meet Phyllis!
Now I love my mom dearly, but we have very different taste in clothes and have NEVER owned the same dress--until now that is!
  It also surprised me was that my mom agreed to be in this photo-shoot! She is usually soooo camera shy.
I think the dress gave her some confidence!
 We got a little silly.
And Mom really got into the modeling thing!
Kudos to Loft for making a dress that works for an "almost" 55 year-old and a 78 that's ageless style!
Love you Mom!
