WIW: daughter inspired

I love how inspiring these challenges are!  Today, doubleh challenged marmee to wear something inspired by, or directly borrowed from, her daughter.  

I have two daughters - 9 and 8 years old.  They wear either sweatpants or bootcut jeans every day, and usually wear a graphic tee with them. When it's cold, they wear a long sleeved tee with a short sleeved tee over it.  And both always wear colored sneakers.  (Well, when they're wearing shoes, that is).

So today I wore a striped tee over a long sleeved tee with my bootcut jeans and red plaid sneakers.  It ended up too chilly for me, so I added a black sweater over it and a red plaid scarf to bookend the sneakers.  But at least I started out in something they would wear :)

    So cute!! 

    If I dress inspired by my daughter, it will be in a hoodie and BF jeans! Plus my own old boots!

    Fun! Were they impressed with how well dressed you were today?

    I don't think they would have noticed that I was wearing "their" formula today, except that I asked the older one (wearing her bootcuts today too) to take a pic with me, explaining that we were dressed alike.  She refused.

    That's great! That was my personal uniform when I was a grocery cashier... Plus a puffer vest. Lol. Ode to puffers... But hey, we were in between the fridges and front doors!

    So cute!  Much better in your *own* clothes than trying out your daughters'!

    Thanks for taking the lead on this.  :)
