About a Mom – Guest Blog

My daughter and I are the best of friends, and collaborating on our blog is something that we really enjoy doing together. We are always cracking each other up, and enjoy so many of the same things. However, fashion is something that we don’t necessarily see eye to eye on. For example, I’m always telling Angela that she needs to dress younger, and she’s always telling me that I should dress more my age.

Shopping at Kmart is one thing that we can always agree on. Kmart Fashion has real clothes for real women like us, at a price that we can afford. Creating a new year’s wardrobe on a budget means that we need to find clothes and shoes that will take us straight from work to a holiday party at night, and Kmart Fashion has just what we need. Their selection of Bongo shoes is fabulous, and so many of them will look great with our outfits. When putting together a new outfit, I often start with a great pair of shoes and work my way up.

My look features the Bongo Sillery Casual Flats in Grey. These Bongo ballet flats can easily take Laura from a busy day of writing, straight to a holiday party. They are so versatile, pairing well with both pants and dresses.

Angela’s look features Bongo Dansby Flats in the color grey. These shoes go with just about any outfit, and get a look of casual elegance from the beautiful accent studding on the toe. They sparkle beautifully!

My Bongo shoes would go perfectly with Angela’s outfit, and hers with mine. They are so versatile. Lucky for me, we wear the same size shoe. I have a feeling I’ll be borrowing those Dansby Flats of hers very soon.

With our busy lifestyle, a more casual look works well for us. Just add a little bling and we’re all set. Details like the sparkly sequins on the Jaclyn Smith Lurex Cardigan Sweater help transform a casual look from day to night. All of the pieces we selected for these outfits will easily mix and match with the rest of our wardrobe. My daughter and I are thrilled with our new Bongo shoes and outfits from Kmart!

My mother and I always enjoyed wearing matching shirts when I was growing up.  I do this now with my youngest....

I would never shop with my mother but I love how us older women are now allowed to dress 'younger'. My daughter and I share clothes. She's 15.

My mom and I have different body shapes and styles. I like shopping with her, but we don't even shop in the same stores most of the time!

Glad you had fun, but shopping with my little one is a nightmare. She wants every toy in the store, but can't find any clothes she likes.

I have been shopping with my mom a lot lately. She lost a lot of weight & needed all new clothes.
