I Feel Pretty | Young at Heart

I Feel Pretty | Young at Heart

I really appreciated all of your comments about age appropriate fashion on last week’s mother/daughter style post. Apparently there are a lot of us that struggle with finding the right balance between looking trendy and feeling comfortable walking out the door wearing a trend.  Especially those of us with teens who don’t want to embarrass ourselves or them!

Thanks to Sheaffer’s awesome idea (and many of you agreed, because let’s face it, she’s brilliant!), I’ve decided to make this a regular monthly feature.  Once a month, my 15 year-old daughter Aubrey and I will be showing you two age-appropriate ways that we’re styling the same piece of clothing.  One way for a teen and one way for a mom that’s, well, let’s just say young at heart.  🙂

Since it’s February, the month of love, we decided to style this graphic sweater.

When I first saw this piece, I honestly didn’t think I could pull it off and am still not 100% sure if I did. It was fun to create an outfit around it, it’s just not something I would probably reach for to wear in my everyday life.

We both picked leopard prints to pair it with, which I found interesting.  Like mother, like daughter!

Aubrey went with a cozy, casual look with leopard print leggings, a long layering tank and her Ugg’s.  This outfit is SO her!

On Alison:

The sweater is a little on the short side so I started off with a long layering tank too.  The blush jeans worked really well with the rest of the neutrals and kind of give it more of a Valentine’s Day feel.  I felt like it needed something more so the leopard scarf was added as a finishing touch.

Alison Love Sweater HalfYes, I’m still crazy about my blush jeans I bought last fall.  I’ve worn them all winter and will continue to through the spring.  If you are still considering a pair, they’re 60% off on final sale.

I love them paired up with my taupe suede boots.  This pair is very similar to mine and on sale for 30% off.  The taupe/gray color goes with everything.

Since we’re styling other members of the family on the blog now, here’s a little kitty couture.

Kitty in a SweaterYes, she hated every second of this!  🙂
