 What goes around comes around.

Nothing is new-- and this is so clearly demonstrated in this style link up. I was looking through photos of my mom in the late 1970s and I realized that without any effort, I could practically create an exact outfit of her... with just a slight variation on my typical hair style.

my mom:
my mom is on the far right in the green stripes. (she's in a European hostel.)

and me:

I get the "you look like your mom" thing a lot.

A lot, a lot.

In high school I didn't like it, just because I was a typical teenager but today, I look at her and I do see our similarities, especially when I compare photos of me with photos of her in the late 70s and early 80s.

Especially when I recreate her 70s hair style.

What do you think? Do we look alike?

Don't forget-- this is a linkup! I'm so excited to see your posts about your mom's style! Any interpretation is welcome-- come back and link your post here or on Just Lovely Things and it will show up in both places!
