Take a close look a the tear sheet on our inspiration board above right. Don’t Jane and I look exactly like the girls in the photo (ripped from Mother’s spring look book)? Okay, perhaps we’re a little more buttoned up, wink wink, ha ha. Which isn’t to say we don’t let loose when it comes to blue-jean shirts. I have several of them – from chambray to denim, light-wash to dark, rumpled to clean…you get the idea. I’ve even got one with my name monogrammed on it. But I had never tried an embroidered shirt like this one from Mother. It’s their cult-fave style, All My Ex’s, with pretty geometric designs on the back (and a bit on the front of the shoulder and the sleeve).
Mother’s shirt feels a little southwestern-desert (well, Jane and I are both California girls; does that count?), a little hippy-ish (guess which one of us used to follow Phish?); and very 70s, which is huge for spring in case you’ve been living somewhere without the internet. I like this 70s trend. And I like this shirt. So I’m good to go.
