It is amazing how two people can be connected in such a way that they develop the same tastes, preferences, beliefs, and behaviors. Just last week I became aware of my boyfriend using the same phrases that I've been using for years, only to realize that I also say the things that I never used to before. After all, we are just two very different individuals but we've grown to be so alike--so imagine what the relationship between a mother and a daughter would be like.
I for one am very fortunate enough to have a close relationship with my mom. The degree to which a mother can influence her child has seriously interested me for years, and being a loudly introspective self-aware individual that I am, there are many things good and bad that I can attribute to the kind of relationship that I had with my mom. One of countless things that we share (or more like I acquired from her) is the love for eyelet patterns. She mentioned once or twice how much she loved that gorgeous white eyelet tablecloth we had in our dining room and that eyelet sweater that she no longer could wear. And a couple of years after when I had enough money in my pocket to please whatever whim or vanity itched me, I found myself obsessed with everything eyelet. When my mom came to visit me in Chicago, she was ever so quick to note all the things eyelet I had in my closet.
So here is one of the many eyelet pieces that I own, but the only one that I had seriously splurged on. It is a beautiful sleeveless dusty green romper with eyelet details and wide ruffle collar that I got while shopping in Fashion Outlets of Chicago. Such a statement piece on its on that needs nothing else in particular to catch one's eyes. A must-have for anyone in love with eyelets and rompers! Check out my photos below to see how I styled it recently and also during the colder months with a thicker sweater cardigan.
Thanks for reading this blog!
The outfit below is during the colder and windier day in March. Love how this dusty green works for spring and autumn, with sandals and booties!
