i am not my mother

I am not my mother, but in this post I am wearing her earrings, ring and bag.
Thanks mom :)
Since I gave up shopping for Lent (praise Jesus that it's almost over) I've been raiding her closet to get my fix.
While this shirt is mine from Urban Outfitters, the colors make me think of the 70's and I could definitely see this in her closet back in the day.
Of all the things I discovered, this ruby ring is my favorite.

wearing: urban outfitters flannel, zara leopard scarf, thrifted belt, f21 jeans, aldo booties, mom's earrings & ring, vintage coach bag (also mom's)
worn to: a lunch date
