Gotta give it to Mum and Dad, they can take a good photo when they want to!
I love going home. Ever since I moved out, going back to Mum and Dads is always some kind of treat (and not just because I get to eat their food). I love spending time with my parents, and Christmas is always the time of year you get to spend some much needed time with family.
What better way to pass some time on these in-betweeny days when, lets face it, none of us quite know what to do with ourselves than to dig out all the old family photographs from the depths of my Mum's cupboard. And, as you'd expect, I came across some absolute crackin' photo's from decades gone by. Like these ones. Showcasing how cool I was as a baby. Obvs.
I absolutely LOVED looking through these photographs. And some of my favourite ones to look through were of my Mum and Dad when they were younger, way before they married, and donkeys years before me and my brother were even thought of. I know, it's weird to think of your parents as anything other than your parents, let alone a fun-loving young couple who didn't give two-hoots about anything!
One thing I did notice was the fashion statements of the 80's that have made rather a swift turnaround and graced the shops once again. And with her permission, of course, I managed to snap a few of my Mum's favourite outfits from our photo albums, so for this post, I'm handing over to my Mum to pose for OOTD's, including bralets, bomber jackets, and of course those white heels! ;)
Seriously though, how much did she rock these high waisted leather trousers?!
It's also a little bit scary how much I look like her too. There's a little joke in our house that neither me or my brother could ever pretend we were from any other family. I mean, the resemblance even goes way back to our baby photo's. If it wasn't for the, um, questionable decor, and photo quality, we could've literally been the same toddler.
I can't believe I'm putting baby photo's on my blog. I think all the Christmas festivities have got to me a little too much...
As much as looking to the future, and living in the now is so important, looking back can be so much fun. Do you ever look back through old photographs? Let me know if you've ever found some crackers!
