This week my darling mom (who also happens to be a food blogger!) is in town so a few days ago we hit the mall and did some serious shopping! It's funny being an adult and a mom myself now. I'm beginning to realize that all those trips we used to take to the mall growing up were focused on me and never her, and she'd buy things for me and never herself. So putting the focus back on her and not me was such a treat!
We wanted to find some cute, flattering, age-appropriate outfits that she could wear on her TV appearances when she cooks on my hometown local daytime TV show, or out to a girlfriend's lunch, or on a little date with my dad! Here's what we found:
How cute is this coral top with a gray cardi? We loved that it was a higher neckline without being too high (nobody wants to feel like their shirt is choking them!) and the gray cardigan doesn't compete with the pattern.
We did kind of the same thing with this outfit but with a green tank and a navy cardigan! I love this color combo. And my mom also loved that these tops go over her bum – a prerequisite for her to feel comfortable when wearing with skinny jeans!
This button-up shirt was one of my favorite things my mom tried on, nice and light and summery! She wore it last night to a cooking class we attended and she looked so cute in it!
Thanks mama for being a good sport and letting me take pictures of all your outfits!
