One of my favourite things to do on a Sunday, besides a) nothing, and b) eat food, is to sift through old photo albums and laugh at dodgy haircuts, forgotten memories and moments gone by. Half of my family reside on the other side of the world and I very rarely get to see them, so it’s nice to get a little nostalgic and peek through at family holidays where we’re all together too.
I was somewhat amused and fascinated by the evolving (or not so evolving) nature of fashion over time, noticing similarities between the way my Mum and I dressed. Ever since chatting away to Kristabel and then Erin about style similarities, I’ve been itching to get back to the photo albums and showcase the good, the bad and the ugly.
Fast forward just a couple of years and I’d just been acquainted with my brother and sister (who are two of my best, best friends nowadays). On a summer day trip into London to feed the pigeons at Trafalgar Square, here I am in a black based floral dress and sandals! Once a devoted monochrome girl, always a devoted monochrome girl…
Do you share, or did you share, a similar style with your Mama? I’d love to hear some of your familial style anecdotes!
