My 61-Year-Old Mom Just Bought These 6 Items Because I Said I Like Them Too

My mother recently messaged me that she bought a few items I recommended in various stories. One of the exact texts in reference to an outerwear piece? "Look what I just bought because you liked it." While age clearly has nothing to do with what you should or shouldn't wear, she does happen to be 61, and she liked the six items she bought because she thought they were timeless and could work for anyone. Side note: I'm also intrigued by her shopping picks and habits in general given her love of fashion and more experienced sartorial POV.

In terms of the pieces in question, the front-runner happened to be a Madewell denim jacket (above). She thinks it's the ideal weight and cut, and she can wear it for many different occasions. Another Madewell staple (the white blouse featured above) and other separates and accessories also made it onto the list.

If you're shopping at the moment and want a bit of inspo, keep scrolling to check out my mom's shopping list, complete with testimonials from her. I also curated a range of other top-notch picks I think she (and you) will enjoy.
