Who wore it better (Part II)? A Linkup and A Giveaway

12:00 AM

Our Tops:  Ewa Bazaar // Our Pants:  Ewa Bazaar // Our Bags:  Ewa Bazaar

My Boots:  Macy's (old, similar here) // My Mom's Boots: Fergie (currently on sale for $70 from $200!!)

Since my mom was such a hit on my blog a few weeks ago (here) I decided to bring her back for round two of Who Wore It Better for my birthday week!  Well, actually, this time around it’s not really a who wore it better post.  For today’s post we wanted to share that fashion is for every age.  It doesn’t matter how old or young you are, fashion is for everyone.  In my opinion fashion is an art.  How can you judge art, when art is extremely opinionated?  My mom never followed the “rules” of fashion, and never will.  She pushes the limits and wears things that people have said you shouldn’t wear after a certain age.  Why does she have to sacrifice feeling confident in her clothing to wear “old lady” appropriate attire?  Why should any woman for that matter?  I’m sure some people would say that these pants shouldn’t be worn after a certain age, but if my mom looks good and feels good why should her age matter?  I think it also helps that she doesn’t look her age too, but I think that has to do with the confidence that she has while wearing certain outfits.  My mom would obviously never leave the house wearing a leopard print velour track suit (I actually don’t think I would either lol), but she has no problem wearing something like OTK boots.

I read a post a few years ago that was titled “things you shouldn’t wear after 25.”  While I was reading it (I was 27 at the time lol) I was thinking, wow so I guess I’m considered old now since the author kept referring to anyone over 25 as old haha.  One of the many items on the list was a pair of stilettos.  Um, what?  Was this author born yesterday?  Do you not see how many women wear stilettos until their very last days?  I mean I personally don’t wear them because I actually get pain in my knee and feet after too long, but the women who can wear them for hours and feel dang good in them, why take that confidence away from them?  Have you ever seen a woman walk in flats and then once she puts on her heels (sky high or kitten, whatever tickles your fancy) she struts her stuff like a super model on the runway?  Ladies, if you feel confident and comfortable, then wear what you think suits you, your body, and your age.

The above look is a perfect example of something that some women my mom’s age might not wear because they feel it’s too “young” for them.  Why though?  I think it’s perfect!  It’s classy, yet edgy.  This is also the perfect fall outfit, even though the weather here in NJ has been really strange.  It’s actually been really hot.  This is the easiest sweater/poncho to wear!  It’s a great addition to an outfit!  The pants are also great!  Believe it or not they are 97% Cotton (and 3% Polyester). 

I wanted to say thank you to my mom for being such a good sport and coming back on the blog, she looks gorgeous, but I may also have a bias opinion.  Below is the link up AND a giveaway since it’s my birthday tomorrow and I want to celebrate!

For the giveaway, thanks to Ewa Bazaar one lucky winner will win a Kate Spade Crossbody.  Below are two colors that you will be able to pick from.  Good Luck Everyone!  Just as a disclaimer, ALL entries will be verified and you will be disqualified if you are not following on all social media that is listed in the giveaway.  If you are a "repeat offender" (someone who constantly enters giveaways then unfollows once they don't win and then follows again when it's time for another giveaway) you will be automatically disqualified.  If you win, you must post a picture on social media and tag myself and Ewa Bazaar!

  1. This is so fun that you're doing this with you mama! I so agree, I don't think there is an age limit on items. I've seen a 60 year old rock it in high heels and short skirts. I mean really to each their own right? You both look amazing in this outfit!

  2. What a great top for a Who Wore It Better post! I couldn't pick a winner! I loved this top on both of you!

    Thank you for hosting this link up!


  3. Love that you brought you mom back! Both of you are so chic! Dying over all the textures in your look!

  4. Love this! Your momma is too cute and I'm glad she's taught you that style is more about confidence than age!

  5. You know, I love it when you include your mom in these!! It's like my blog with the different age groups!! And it's true that any age can wear what looks good on them!!
    Even my mom (the 70+ model) has OTK boots now....and a leather skirt!!! Let's make it fun to get older!!

  6. Yeah, another "Who Wore It Better?" Post! I LOVE these! You both look amazing, and I agree wholeheartedly with everything you wrote!

  7. Amen about style at every age! When I worked retail I would often get questions from women asking if a piece looked too young for them. But I could usually tell they liked it, and I always told them no. Sometimes I would mention one reason why it really looked good on them, just to help them move past the stigma. And this is such a classic look that looks great on both of you!


  8. I love this fun outfit on you both! I am a fan of coated denim and am looking for an olive pair. The faux leather detail on your top is cool too, and of course i love the boots!

  9. You both look stunning in this outfit, it's a winner on both of you in my eyes. Thanks for sharing and hosting too. Jacqui

  10. I have the same relationship with my mom. We often talk about clothes and play stylist for each other. I honestly think that you both wore it well, you just both put your own personal twist to it.

  11. Well I'd have to say you both rocked it!!! How fun to do this with your mom!!
