Fashion Friday: I Found A Gem In My Mom’s Wardrobe

So I’m sure you must have noticed that checks are big this season. And you may have also seen just how pricey some of these pieces are in store!

I spotted a check blazer that I liked at a major retailer recently, and I somehow remembered my Mother wearing a similar style MANY years ago. The blazer was ridiculously priced in store, by the way!

So on my next visit to my Moms, I asked her if she still had it and whether she could pass it my way. 

So it was my lucky day – after a little bit of persuasion that she would never really wear it  again – she passed it my way.

And I’m so glad she did.

Apposed to the black and white check print that is literally in every shop window at the moment, the blue and tan check print is a refreshing alternative for Autumn.

Alyssa has already asked me to keep it aside for her when she’s older, which means that she clearly approves of this look!

I think I need to pay my Mom’s wardrobe another visit soon. You never know what I might find.

Have you received any “vintage” fashion piece from a family member? I’d love to hear.

    Moms are just the flipping best, aren’t they? No matter how old we get!!

    Love it. When I saw the check trend instyle again, I did the same… went through my mom’s cupboard as I remembered she has a few check pants. And found the one I was looking for. Will need to have it altered a little but it’ll be less than buying a new one. We just can’t find the long coat she had.

      Ooh, think I need to go dig a little deeper at my Moms this weekend. I would love to see what you found 😉

    Stunning! Some of my best wardrobe finds have been in my mother’s wardrobe.

    I was lucky enough to inherit a stunning black genuine leather trench coat from my late grandmother & a beautiful light summer cardigan. I love them & will never let go of these sentimental pieces.

      Sounds gorgeous! And as the saying goes, true style and classic pieces never go out of fashion.
