Inspired by my mom, circa 2002.

Earrings, Ten Thousand Villages; Robot watch necklace, F21; Lace cardigan, Le Chateau; Dress, Costa Blanca; Ring, inPink; Boots, Locale.

I struggled with these shots. This fabric is less than forgiving when it is in the process of being plastered viciously to your body as a result of strong winds off the prairies. But that’s OK. It’s a reality of the prairies, really. Pick a photoshoot location without windbreaks, and you’ll have to contend with it.

Sometimes, though? You just want an iconic Winnipeg structure in the background (especially when that iconic structure is providing the world with GLOW-IN-THE-DARK DINOSAUR QUARTERS).

This outfit was 100% inspired by my mom. This hairstyle is called, by my momma, “wild and wooly.” She’s perfected the messy, crazy, chaotic curls, and I’ve attempted to copy her, with some success, but really, she’s the master. I wouldn’t be surprised if one day, this dress disappeared from my closet (much in the same way that several pieces I wear on the blog regularly have disappeared from her closet), and reappeared miraculously in hers.

It’s pretty awesome having a mom who doubles as style inspiration.
