When an Outfit Reminds Us of Our Childhood


Happy to Co-Host with Megan of Fashionista Momma,I am sharing one of the looks I packed for my trip to Asheville, just to go out for drinks at night


When I first put this outfit on, especially the top, I thought of peach or orange sherbet. Not that sherbet is my favorite summer cold yummy treat, but it reminded me of when I was a kid, my mom would get those  large bowls of sherbet in the grocery store each summer It was Mom;s favorite treat! How can one go wrong when one puts on their #ootd and it reminds them of fond childhood memories?




Let’s just say,  as long as those clothes don’t look like Garanimals ( a company who makes kids clothes that match and feature animals for any not familiar) thenI think it is a good thing. Peach is a favorite color, especially as a red head, as I think it brings out those ginger tones in a red head’s hair.


I wanted to put together a fun look for just going out at night for drinks, or a fun night out. The pointed nude flats with bow front makes it a notch up on the dressier scale.


I also think of this topic when I stray away from plaids. I went to a Catholic School where plaid was my uniform for 9 years. Never really thought about it until now, but I think it reminds me of that uniform!

    I’m not sure if any of my outfits remind me of my childhood Jess, but I’m going to bear the thought in mind. Peach is a great colour for you as you have warm skin. You could even wear it as a neutral. Love peplums as they’re so flattering. You top is stunning on you.

      I think this is why I shy away from Plaid, I went to a Catholic school for 9 years and we had these uniforms! Glad you like this outfit though 🙂 thank you!xx

    Love the peplum top on you Miss Jess. Had to laugh about the sherbet. Brought back memories of my grandmother. There was a soft serve orange sherbet shop in her neighborhood & it was quite a treat to go there. Asheville is lovely – enjoy.
