Inspired by Mom: Blogger Roundup

With Mother’s Day quickly approaching, it makes sense we’re celebrating our very first style icon: Mom. Whomever the maternal figure is in your life, her inspiration is invaluable. Below, ten of our favorite fashionistas spill the way their moms, grandmas, aunts, and more have influenced their own personal style over the years. 

Reah Norman of Styled By Reah

Reah Gabby Skye Pinstripe Shirt Dress

“Mom and I would spend A LOT of time trying things on, searching for options, and feeling frustrated with the fit of almost everything. She was always there by my side, helping work through the frustration I felt, and helping me find creative solutions to express myself in fashion.” – Reah

Bree of The Tall Society 

Tall Society Alice & You Swing Dress in Purple Floral Print

“My mom’s influence on my style has been impactful in the best way possible, repeating her words spoken frequently throughout my childhood: ‘You are beautiful! You are unique!’.” – Bree

Kelly of Big Curvy Love

Big Curvy Love Taylor Dresses Floral Dress with Striped Top

“I wasn’t about to stop at one look — I combined mum’s floral inspiration with a nautical-theme blue stripe, which I felt upped the sophistication factor. I think she would approve of the mix and match trend.”- Kelly

Rachel of Lovely in LA

Lovely in LA Sangria Chevron Romper

“[My mom] is definitely a huge part of why I rock all my outfits with confidence and I’m not afraid to go out on a limb and experiment with something outside my comfort zone.” – Rachel

Alissa of Stylish Curves

“My mom always taught me to be a lady. I think that’s why my style leans more toward classic and sophisticated pieces.” – Alissa

Chastity of Garner Style

Chasity Garner Kiyonna Twirling Tulle Skirt in Peach

“As I’m wearing this look, I think about the dress that I used to play dress up in when my mom was away.  I assume she still doesn’t know to this day that I used to sneak in her closet.  I guess she knows now. LOL.” – Chastity

Kim of Naturally Fashionable

Naturally Fashionable Jessica Howard Lime Striped Dress with Contrast Zipper

“My mother has always desired for me to be a stylish classy woman. She taught me so many lessons about style, modesty, and representing myself well in this world.  Although we don’t always agree on everything, my mother is my style muse.” – Kim

Monique of Curves and Chaos

CurvesandChaos Sangria Palm Print Blocked Blouson Dress

“My mom has inspired me to take chances when it comes to my personal style. Instead of playing it safe, I step out of my style comfort zone with her in mind.” – Monique

Kristine of Trendy Curvy

Trendy Curvy Jete Circle Drawings Printed Blouse

“I think what I inherited most from [my mom] is her style. She is such a classic woman and is always well put-together. She knows exactly what garments will suit her the best and which ones will play up her best assets.” – Kristine

Allison of Curvy Girl Chic

Curvy Girl Chic Taylor Dresses Floral Dress with Striped Top

“My mom’s personal style was always practical and geared toward getting things done. In recent years though, she’s been able to really explore her personal style. She’s embraced more colors, prints, and feminine styles, and is now almost always in a pretty printed sheath or fit and flare dress, and has some of the most AMAZING accessories.”- Allison
