My Mama in 1970

The other day my dear friend Meaghan did a post on her blog with pictures of her Mom when she was just a girl. I was so enchanted by Meaghans lovely post and her adorable Mom that I had to do a post in honor of my Mama. These pictures where taken in 1970 when my Mom was 17 years old. Most were taken by her Mom and Dad for her husband to be, a midshipman at the Naval Academy. My Mom gave me these pictures when I was 16 and they've been one of my most treasured possessions since. If I was just half as beautiful as my Mama was and IS, I'd be a very lucky girl! I hope you enjoy!

These are fantastic!! Your mom had a pretty cool style. It's funny how the photos all have such a perfect old look, they remind me of the effect that new magazines try to get in their photos sometimes. This is the legit original! I love it.

How amazing! Your mom is beautiful--and totally smoking hot in her two piece! Thank you for sharing. I recently posted a few photos of my mom on my blog as well: Fashion for Writers and am planning to post a few more once I go home to New York and have a chance to scan in photos of her from her modeling days!
