Borrowed from Mom’s Closet

chic fall outfit borrowed from mom's closet

Vintage sweater, distressed jeans & leo pumps

I knew I had a thing for fashion and putting outfits together at a very young age. I remember constantly playing in my mom’s closet for hours and trying on not only every single pair of shoes she owned, but also all of her clothes. Luckily for me she is of petite frame so by age 12 I was rocking them dresses and heels like a true diva! Of course when I say “rocking” I mean twirling a dozen times in front of her mirror.

These days not much has changed. I still raid her closet once in a while and come home with a few new goodies to incorporate into my outfits. This sleeveless cream sweater is my latest find. It’s been sitting in her closet for years and it’s surprisingly like new. The tag is gone but I think it’s a Loft circa 1999.  It just goes to show how wardrobe classic staples really never go out of style.

I kept my look easy & minimal (of course) and paired my vintage; aka borrowed from mom’s closet top, with distressed jeans and a leopard pump. My siblings always say that I am mom’s spitting image both in looks and character, I have a feeling they will have a lot to say about this look..;)

Ooh and can I talk about how much I love my City + Sky Houston skyline necklace! My brothers are going to love this one! They are forever repinn’ H-Town. Geesh so much family talk today lol. Check out City+Sky at and see if they have your city.

    SO much goodness in this picture. You look fabulous my dear. You’re so lucky to be able to raid your mom’s closet. My mom and I are so different that I’m not sure either of us would be happy if we had to pick from each other, ha! I LOVE that necklace so much. It’s a different type of piece that would add some character to an outfit! I’m for sure looking into that!
