OOTD | Inspired By Mum | House Of Fraser Competition

So hey!
Bit of a different post today, really don't know how its gunnah go down.
But; I was recently contact by House Of Fraser to participate in an "inspired by mum" look,
There where so many angles I could of took for this, and all of the other entries are just beautifully put together!

But... After a lot of thinking, I decided to take on of my mums outfits and re-create it myself.


TO THE OUTFIT:

I chose this really cheeky outfit of my mum!
She was about 17 at the time, attending a game fair with my Dad in Western Park during summer of 1987!


And I felt SO nervous posting this because its so cheeky haha!
Sorry guys. I understand you don't want to see this much of my leg, but I wanted it to be authentic & trust me, I was a bit worried haha.
But I just LOVED the outfit she was wearing, I can't believe how stylish it is and how similar our tastes must be! 
I so desperately wish she'd kept her wardrobe.


Definitely should have covered a bit more leg....


My outfit:




||Skirt: New Look | Blouse: Vintage | Glasses: Specsavers | Bag: Vintage | Watch: eBay | Shoes: Misguided ||

(Yes the photo's have a "vintage filter", this is the only bit of editing)

Part of the blogging challenge was to find a piece that would complete your "inspire by mum" outfit from House of Fraser, and BOY did I find it!
The one thing I didn't have similar to my mum was those pretty shoes!

I knew I wouldn't struggle because there is SO much to offer from HOF, but, I can honestly say , hand over heart, I have NEVER loved a pair of shoes like this.

Next payday, these ARE MINE.

The lace ups, the cut out. Miss KG have really won me over.
& the brand means the quality would just be outstanding, they'd last for many summers to come.

I love my mum so much, we've been through thick and thin together (literaly)
We've both been through so much, and I can talk to her about anything I want to.
I mean, anything.
We're so alike and sometimes that scares me, 
but my mum is such a kind, warmhearted person who would do anything for anyone,
& if that means I'm like her, then I'm happy!

I absolutely LOVED doing this post, thank you House Of Fraser!
