Mum's the Word!

Okay. I don't mean to blow my own trumpet, but I think this might be THE MOST ADORABLE OUTFIT POST YOU HAVE EVER SEEN! No, really. It's okay, I'm not being terribly vain, honest, because it's not featuring me at all! It's featuring my lovely Mum! Fitting for Mother's Day, really. :)

Last year, I drove Mum to Matalan for a wander and ended up being like 'Try this on! Try this!' and she ended up spending, um, a lot of money. Ooops. But it was fun! I got to shop and she got new clothes! Win/Win, right? Anyway, I enjoyed that whole personal shopping lark and decided to cook up a plan to do it again, along with Matalan  Basically, my Mum hates clothes shopping - I know, it's mad to me too - and I asked Matalan if they'd help me convert her into a nice, normal, broke shopaholic like her daughter. And they said yes!

So, armed with a £60 Matalan gift voucher, I did a little series of blog posts for them about dressing Mum. Here's the first, here's the second, and here are the results of the third - because the whole project culminated in a little photoshoot in the garden. Remember the garden? Home of all my outfit posts for a good year or so! Well, it's not my garden any more, but it's still Mum's, and it seemed fitting. It was a bit hilarious directing her - 'Hand on hip! Look wistful!' - but by the end I swear she was doing all my usual faces and poses.

Also, doesn't she look lovely?

Happy Mother's Day, Mum! You can see my three Matalan blog posts here.
