What I Wore-Mother/Daughter Fashion

Today is a special What I Wore day because I’m sharing some Mother/Daughter fashion.

I’ve wanted to include Courtney in some of my fashion posts. I know there are some younger women who read my blog and some of you have daughters so I thought it would be fun.

Courtney and I love to go shopping together. It’s quality mother/daughter time and we usually plan our shopping around lunch time. One of our favorite places to eat for lunch is Chick-fil-A.

We had a little bit of a hard time getting a picture because Colt Allen seemed to want to be apart of the action. Courtney’s looking at her husband and asking for a little help.

What I Wore

Colt Allen has decided this is where he wants to play!

What I Wore

Okay, finally we got some help and snapped this picture super quick.


We wore these outfits to church on Sunday. They seemed to coordinate although we didn’t plan it. The only new pieces to our outfit are our riding boots.

Courtney has a great eye for style and one thing she wears a lot this time of the year is hats. She looks so cute in them! She snapped this picture with her iphone camera and shared it on Instagram. Oh how I wish I could wear a hat! (Obviously Colt Allen is hungry.)

What I wore

Who do you all going shopping with most of the time? A daughter, friend, mom??

Beauty For the Heart~~My prayer is that above all else I will have taught my children and grandchildren God’s word. Deuteronomy 6:6-9 says,

“Write these commandments that I’ve given you today on your hearts. Get them inside of you and then get them inside your children. Talk about them wherever you are, sitting at home or walking in the street; talk about them from the time you get up in the morning to when you fall into bed at night. Tie them on your hands and foreheads as a reminder; inscribe them on the doorposts of your homes and on your city gates.”

Have a blessed day!

    You and Courtney look so cute and coordinated, even though that was not your intention. Courtney is lucky to have inherited her Mother’s sense of style. I love he dress you are wearing Cyndi and Courtney in her hat is so darling and trendy. I prefer to shop with my daughter more than anyone! She tells me like it is and shows me how I can incorporate younger, trendy styles into my “over 50” wardrobe without looking like a wannabe 20 year old. Bless you both and bless that sweet baby, he made your pictures all the more special!

    So cute! Love your scarf! I’m blessed to have two daughters (both in their 20s, one married with a baby) who live close enough to go shopping often! Your shopping days sound like our shopping days … lunch at CFA is always in the plan! Have really enjoyed reading your blog and all the great tips for women over 40! Thanks for all the great advice … so far I’ve purchased a denim jacket, changed my lip color, finally tried on/purchased/love leggings and a skirt … all thanks to your great tips!

    Cyndi~ I have a question I’ve been meaning to ask you….Regarding tall boots…I am only 5′ 4 1/2″ (can’t forget the half inch…. :) ) tall. Do you think that when shorter people, like myself, wear riding boots with a pair of jeans, it makes us look shorter? Am I too short to wear them? How tall are you? It helps to know and get some perspective when you show us what you are wearing :) Thanks for your input. Have a blessed day :)

    WOW! That first pic of you and Courtney…she looks JUST LIKE YOU!! You two look so cute. My daughter and I like to shop together too. Love your boots. Thanks for the cute post :)

    Love your dress and jean jacket….where did you find them? My daughter and I will have plans to go somewhere and we will end up dressing in the same colors!!! Now she is 8 months pregnant so her wardrobe now is pretty limited!!! But here’s the fun thing I work part time Forever 21 and it’s a blast!!! I love helping people pick out outfits!!! Loved your post!!! And Colt’s a doll!!!

    Oh Brenda i miss shopping with my Mom so much! Sometimes when I’m out shopping I see something and want to call and tell her. I have good memories too!

  7. says

    You two are SO cute! I absolutely love both of your boots. I wish I wore hats more. Your daughter is inspiring me.

    I shop with my daughter too. She’s only eleven and has a crazy style, but we have a blast.

    Wear a hat if you want to wear one!!!! I have a gardening hat I wear when going to garden centers and work outside. I love it! I do get some strange looks but I do not care. My hat is cute and I enjoy it. I have always loved hats. Your outfits are so cute. I wish I had a daughter to shop with….

  9. Kelly Palmer says

    You both look great! I would love to shop with my daughters both they both live 9 hours away from me. I do however enjoy shopping with my husband. He has great taste and will tell me honestly how things look on me. It is like having my own private shopping consultant :)

  10. Laura says

    So cute! You too look so much alike – as many say about my daughter and me. I shop with my 24-yo daughter all the time, once in a while with dh.

  11. Gina says

    LOVE you blog and really enjoy getting ideas for a 40 something girl to wear! Your dress is too cute, would you mind sharing where you bought it?

  12. Joy says

    I love this post, Cyndi! Please do it again :) My favorite person to shop with is my husband…. seriously, he is more into style and the latest fashion than I am! I do enjoy shopping with my mom but we are 8 hours apart so don’t get the chance too often. I LOVE your dress, too Cyndi…. and even lil’ Colt. As moms, I’m sure we all understand… gave me a lil’ chuckle when I saw how busy he was :)

    Hi Cyndi.

    Love your outfits! You two look amazing.

    I shop with my mom and my daughter, who is a toddler! I am an “older” mom of a young little girl of almost 3 1/2. Even so, she is already picking out her clothes and telling me what she will and will not wear! My mom had me when she was very young, so we have had many enjoyable years of shopping together. We seem to share a love for it! Her health isn’t great now, so we do not go very often, but we are planning a shopping day for her birthday in February.

    Thanks for sharing the post and pictures. Hope you have an amazing week.

    used to shop with my mother. we started at early ages and even when living across the country from each other we managed to have some great fun shopping when visiting each other.She liked it so much better when we added my daughter but even now she is a reluctant shopper. Mom has gone HOME now but those memories are still quite vivid and were always punctuated with laughter.

    I love shopping with my daughter, who is in high school. We are two peas in a pod! However, I usually end up buying much more for her than myself (no wonder she likes shopping with me so much!). But she’s a petite little size 4 and it’s just so fun to buy clothes for her that I know I could never wear!

  16. Bobbi says

    I LOVE shopping with my daughter, but unfortunately she lives six hours away. We definitely go out whenever she’s home. I shop with my husband, who is also very fun but I have to keep reminding him “I do not look good in everything” . . . oh, love is blind.

  17. Rhetta says

    You both look adorable. Actually all three of you. :) My favorite shopping partner is my daughter as well. Our trips are rare these days, as she lives 13 hours away and is a wife, mother, graduate student, and pastor. Best friend and I love to meet for coffee, then go thrifting. Good times.

    Cyndi you and Courtney both look great. I usually shop alone,but recently my 20 yr old Son Brennan went shopping with me and I ended up buying a pair of Coral coloured wedge heels that I love. We had a great day together.Maybe we’ll do it again.Colt is adorable..

  19. says

    You guys do coordinate perfectly, considering that you didn’t plan to! And you both look beautiful! I love the real-life touch of the baby getting into the pictures, too!

  20. says

    My daughter is away at college,but each time we are home we go shopping. I have a new friend I met through Weight Watchers and we go thrifting every week after our meetings. Love your outfits and isn’t it funny that it wan’t planned.
