MILTDL

MILTDL: (noun); pronounced milt-i-dle; colloquial acronym; stands for Mom I'd Like To Dress Like:
1.) American slang-Common usage: A mother with impecable style that is admired by many
See: Judy Aldridge of Atlantis Home
synonyms: chic mama, stylish madre

As you can see, I am blatantly copying one of Ms. Aldridge's looks, minus the Stella shoes, Y-3 leather skirt and her infamous Pamela Love claw necklace. Actually, minus anything designer. So really, my outfit can't even touch her outfit with a 30 foot pole. Sigh.

I tried though. Can't blame me for that.

  • Shirt: Plaid flannel, from boyfriend's closet
  • Skirt: Leather pencil skirt, vintage
  • Shoes: Yellow strappy gladiator heels, Nine West
  • Jewelry: Gold, multi-layer chain necklace

  1. Like your take on it, though. The yellow shoes really make the outfit more fun. And this way, you won't care too much if it gets dirty!

  4. I love how this is primary colors, but it doesn't look childish. You look very put together! Annnd, props for making a leather skirt work during the summer! I tend to think of leather for cooler weather, but I love it summered up!

  7. Your boyfriend's shirt is way more awesome than Judy's! You should never, ever give it back. It's awesome.

    And now I'm kicking myself for giving my leather skirt to Goodwill three years ago. I hope I find a new one soon!

  9. You could touch her with a ten foot pole, but she may think you were weird/ may call the cops.
    I think you look smashing and I don't think you are copying her/ channeling her at all. She has the funds to buy expensive pieces and I don't think it means she is more stylish than anyone. I admire her ability to find amazing vintage pieces however, but you seem to have the same eye, you can just pull off more because of your age and stature.
    I could go on all day about said bloggers, but I'll cease.
    Bottom line...I like you better. :)

  14. I think you look amazing! I'm going to agree with what Linda said and that you do definitely have the eye for pieces. I love how you put things together but it's not something boring. It definitely says something :]

  15. You just know exactly what looks amazing on you. It's kind of incredible, actually. I LOVE this whole thing. Oh, and I went with a Canon point-and-shoot, but only until I save up enough for the real thing. Thanks for the tip, beautiful!

  16. This outfit is so cute and I think it is easy for people who are fortunate enough to afford designer clothes to dress chic but it says a lot when an average person on a budget can dress just as good ... maybe even better. You have great style!!
