Fashionable Mama

I was attempting to clean my teenage daughter's room this morning, when I noticed a familiar-looking sun dress on the floor.  I went over and picked it up.  Isn't this mine? I thought.  Then I saw a sweater on the ground.  It looked familiar, too.  What's going on, here?

I went downstairs and asked my daughter how my articles of clothing ended up on her floor.

"I went through your closet and found some things I want to wear for school," she explained.  "I have another of your sun dresses, too.  I'm wearing it tomorrow."

Oh.  "Okay," I said.  "But I thought you didn't like my style."

She shrugged.  "It's okay. Sometimes.  And besides, the dresses fit me."

I see.  So maybe Mama is fashionable after all!

  6. I was wearing my mom's jeans in 4th grade because she's super tiny. We shared shirts all throughout my teenage years. Some stuff she just gave me and some I gave her. She never wore my dresses or skirts though because she doesn't like them.

    1. My daughter is taller than me, now. She actually has handed down clothes to me.

  10. That's daughters for you Sherry, though my daughter couldn't raid my wardrobe as she is only 4 ft. 11 inches so they wouldn't have fitted her..

    1. Some of my stuff fits my daughter, even though she's a little taller than me (5'5)

  11. Why are you cleaning that child's room? Why is she taking clothes from your closet without permission? I sense a need to crack down.

    Love,

    2. If The Hurricane had ever taken my clothes, and IF SHE HAD THROWN THEM ON THE FLOOR, her ass would have been grass and you know I'm the lawnmower.

  17. Not bad to have your style to be validated by your kids. Guess you're "with it".

    1. She's very in to fashion, so I'm glad she thinks at least some of my wardrobe is fashionable.

  19. That reminds me a lot of how I didn't like what my mom wore when I was a teenager and now I have adopted a lot of her style. When we're teenagers we just don't want to admit how cool our moms really are :D
