your mom (style): a linkup party!

It's a funny thing, twitter. I remember when I first started tweeting (a little over three years ago) as a requirement for a class in college. We had to tweet and then write an explanation for each tweet.

Today I don't really think about what I tweet, which could be a good or bad thing, depending on who you are.

The whole reason behind this story is that I was on twitter and became involved in a conversation about mom style. As in what moms wore in the late 70s, early 80s.

The conversation turned to paying homage to our mom's jumpsuits, shoulder pats and permed hair.

And, thus, a link-up idea was born, and you're officially invited to participate!

Your interpretation can be broad -- a post where you share photos of your mom's rocking style, try to recreate your mom's look, or even write from her perspective. It's up to you! Then on next Tuesday, May 29, get ready to link your post up here or on Heather's blog {just lovely things}, and of course, go check out all the other mom styles others have posted.

Here's the button, if you want to join the party. (featuring Claire Huxtable from the Cosby Family-- reppin' some classic early 80's mom style.)

Can't wait to see what you share next week!
