Glamour Puss

So, I went out to visit my grandparents this weekend, and spent some time going through old photo albums. It’s so fun to go through old books like that, talking about the good old days and the memories that come with it.

While we were perusing, I came across this gem – and WOWZA!

For those of you who follow me on Instagram, you’ll have already seen this.

But dang.

My mom is a hottie.


She was seriously movie star glamorous, posing for this photo (I’m sure taken by my dad who used to have a thing for photography). Truthfully, she’s movie star glamorous to this very day. This woman always looks photo ready, regardless of the situation. If I can be half as fabulous as she is when I’m her age (or any age, really), then I’ll be a happy girl.

And I’d happily steal her style from this picture as well. Wind blown, perfect curls, blowing in the breeze? Love. Mirrored aviators? Yep. Awesome plaid jacket, and a button down peeking out of her turtleneck sweater? I’m liking everything about it.

This woman hasn’t changed a bit. I happily steal her style to this very day (no lie – I borrow from her closet whenever I have something important to dress up for). Does everyone have a mother this glamorous, or am I just the lucky one?

The fabulous Jane, circa mid seventies. A classic look.
