Who Wore It Better, An Announcement, and a Linkup

Fashion Linkup Who Wore It Better

Our Outfit Details

Mom:  Jacket:  Ralph Lauren // Pants:  INC // Shoes:  Franco Sarto // Top:  Ralph Lauren

Me:  Jacket:  MakeMeChic // Pants:  INC (thanks mom!) // Shoes:  Old Navy (sold out, similar) // Top:  Karl Lagerfeld (thanks mom!)

It has been quite some time since my last Who Wore it Better post with my mom.  For my birthday my mom bought me these pants and this top (I seriously love Karl Lagerfeld!), and she bought herself the same pair of pants.  Now, this is a huge deal for my mom, because she hates pants with pockets like these.  She told herself she would never wear these types of pants, but how can you resist that sparkle on them?!  I on the other hand, love love love these pants and was immediately drawn to them when I opened up the bag.  I have this thing for this shade of green, and of course sparkle.  I’m one of those girls who loves sparkle.

We took these pictures a few weeks ago when the fiancé had gone up to New Hampshire, which is why his car is in the background and not mine haha.  He LOVES his Transam.  I think she’s pretty cool.  Her name is Christine, like the car from the old black and white movie that was a killer car named Christine.  It’s funny, I grew up with a Pontiac fanatic (my dad) and will be marrying one.

Now, this announcement I’m making today does not have to do with what I was talking about in last week’s Wednesday Linkup post.  This was kind of a spur of the moment thing.  MY MOM HAS STARTED A BLOG!  Today is her first post!  She decided to also do the Who Wore it Better post with me.  She’s co-hosting this linkup with me.  I basically talked my mom into it.  Her blog name is 60 Plus Experience.  Make sure to go check her out and follow her on social media!

Now, moving on to the linkup!

    Oh my Gosh, Monica! I love your mom! I will be following her blog for sure. Heading there in a minute to read her first post. And these outfits are freaking fabulous. I think you are both wearing the pants equally well. I would totally wear either outfit! You are both so gorgeous, too! Fabulous, my friend, just fabulous!

    WOW what a great and unexpected announcement! Your mom is beautiful and stylish – I see where you get your beauty and sense of style, from. =) Love love those incredible olive silky cargo pants and BOTH of your booties. I would wear either outfit. Equally stylish and such cute jackets, too.

    Congrats to mom on her blog journey, heading over there now!

    Seriously love the almost matching looks! I guess you can say I am biased as I love dressing up together with my son but honestly, you and your mom look so chic and pretty. I adore the sparkle on the green pants and you are right about the color – it is AH-mazing. No need to pull my leg though, the pockets already won me over.
