I absolutely love and adore my Mum.
My Mum is my best friend, and my number one supporter in life and all that I do.
She’s the person that I go to for advice, for help with anything I need whether it be business or personal, and she’s the woman that truly knows me better than I know myself!
She’s been one of the most constant people in my life and no matter what – I know that she will always have my back!
We used to bicker and fight when I was younger, but thankfully over time, we both developed a strong bond with each other, and I now lean on Mum for constant advice, support and guidance.
There’s not a day that goes by that we don’t talk to each other either!
I know that I truly am SO lucky to have someone like her in my life.
This year, in celebration of Mother’s Day, I was lucky enough to collaborate with Australian clothing label – Adrift which specialises in selling beautiful women’s fashion for all ages, shapes and sizes.
Mum and I have previously collaborated with this wonderful brand, which caters for women of all ages and sizes – meaning that both Mum and I can shop at the one shop together!
This was the second time that Mum and I have done a photoshoot together, and it was truly a very special experience for both of us.
We opted to shoot in my home, which both Mum and Dad have helped me transition to living in on my own, and it’s one place where Mum and I do hang out a lot and share moments with each other.
For this particular photoshoot, we chose to wear a couple of the same outfits to show how they can be worn and styled for different sizes, body shapes and ages.With sizes ranging from XS – to XL, there really is a style and size for everyone.
Take a look at what we wore!
Look One – Relaxing at Home
I love having my Mum over on weekends to relax at home. We both lead fairly busy lives during the week, so it’s always nice to catch up on the week gone by.
We both LOVE to lounge around at home, so it was fitting that we both selected the Winter Swing Dress in Navy to relax in.
This is the ultimate long-sleeve, t-shirt dress.
Combining fitted sleeves, a curved swing hemline and round neckline, it’s a fantastic all year round piece.
Key things that we love about it is it’s gorgeous, soft stretch fabric and loose fit, that seems to hang so well in all the right places too!
We are both also wearing the Diamond Ball necklace which can give any outfit life and a touch of glam!
Look Two – Same Same But Different
What we both love about the Adrift brand is that it is so versatile, and literally any woman of any age can wear their pieces.
For this next look, we opted towards a gorgeous Paisley printed dress for me, and shirt and pant for Mum.
The Karina Dress in Paisley combines a stunning paisley fabric with a unique timeless silhouette, making it a perfect versatile dress. What I love most about it is that it has pockets (yes!) and hangs so well on the body with its loose fitting shift shape and strict fabric.
I also paired the dress with a pair of the Fringe Saddle Earrings – which is a great way to incorporate a subtle touch of fringing into your wardrobe.
Mum opted to wear the Lori Top in Paisley , which she absolutely loved wearing, as its definitely her sort of style! The gorgoues V-neckline ensures a flattering fit, whilst the clean silhouette makes it easy to transition between seasons.
She’s paired it with the Linen Pant in White which perfectly combines clean, sophisticated lines with gorgeous linen-blend fabric. Featuring a cropped hem and elasticised waistband, these pants are sure to become a staple year-round, and I’m fairly sure that Mum has already bought herself a pair!
Look Three – Mum and I Doing What We Love
Mum is often the one who gives me advice on outfits and looks that I style on the blog or wear for work, and often loves helping me get ready for various events and things as well!
Therefore, I thought it was fitting that we shoot in my bedroom, the place where Mum and I will often hang out and discuss outfits and things to wear for upcoming events.
It is here where I chose to wear a more relaxed look with the Winter Swing Tee in Navy (which is just as comfortable as the Winter Swing Dress!), with the Jordan Pant in Black. These are both items from Adrift’s Basics range, perfect for relaxing at home in!
Mum opted to wear a gorgeous navy dress with cut-out detailing, paired with the Paisley Tassel Scarf in Pink and Navy, which compliments the look and ties it all together beautifully. I think this was her favourite look too!
Get the looks!
