With Mother’s Day around the corner, I’ve been keeping my eyes peeled for Mother-Daughter pairs to feature as GURU Style Stars. I was excited when I spotted an even better find — three generations!
Meet Amy, Emerson, 4, and JoAnn! Love the pink — especially on a dreary day.
And yes, this trio paid a little visit to Lilly Pulitzer! That’s why they came to Towson Town Center on this day. Amy and Emerson live in Howard County, and JoAnn is from Catonsville. I’ll show you what’s in two of the bags in a moment…
Amy, Emerson and JoAnn
JoAnn, Amy’s mom and Emerson’s grandmother, scored her pink rain coat at Gap. It really pops over her navy cardi, white tee and jeans.
Amy’s python print sweater and jeans are both J.Crew finds. Her necklace is from Ann Taylor. Her turquoise bag is Michael Kors.
Little Emerson is wearing a sweet plaid top from Gymboree with jeggings and crocheted flats. She’s lucky her little shoes aren’t in my size…
On this shopping trip, JoAnn bought Amy and Emerson these matching Lilly Pulitzer dresses as birthday presents!
Mother & Daughter Dresses
Now for our Q&A:
Describe your style:
Amy: Casual, comfortable clothes with a little bling! I always wear jewelry.
JoAnn: I would say I’m more conservative, preppy.
What are your favorite stores at Towson Town Center?
Amy: Lilly Pulitzer and J.Crew. I like J.Crew for my everyday. Lilly for dress up, especially for summer!
JoAnn: I like Talbots and J.Crew.
How do you two influence each other’s style?
Amy: I would say now I influence her. Years ago she influenced me more. I keep her up to date on new styles while keeping her dress age appropriate.
JoAnn: I do have some taste she can’t take credit for all of it.
Amy: You do have good taste, mom.
How have you influenced Amy’s style?
JoAnn: I’ve influenced her to be a shopper because I’ve always been a shopper.
Amy: I would say the biggest influence is you always told me to dress appropriate and not to be a showy person, not to wear revealing clothes.
