Retro Skate Date

My Momma, Rockyn Robyn has been roller skating her whole life and still is to this day. She’s on a roller derby team and still competes at the age of 56! The picture of her jumping above was in the same green skates in 1980, back when she was dating my dad. How cute are my parents? 😆 We thought it would be fun to pull out her old vintage green skates and my sister’s old pair and do a fun shoot together. A little while ago she gave me some of her old shirts, one of which was this cute Hawaii shirt from their honeymoon. We’ve been having such a blast skating together! This last year we’ve been roller skating once a week and she’s been showing me all her amazing skills. It’s been so rad getting to spend so much time together. My mom is my hero and my best friend and being around her makes my heart so happy. I’m so blessed to have been surrounded by so much love from her my whole life. Happy Mother’s Day Momma! You make my life so much brighter. Can’t wait to celebrate with you this weekend!

My cute Momma from 1970-1980

I was talking with my Momma while looking through some of her old photos. She was a teenager through the 70’s and she told me that it was “the thing” to wear Dittos. All the girls wanted them and if you had a pair then you were super rad. She had several pairs of them and they were her absolute favorite pants to wear. Dittos were often found in country western stores back in the day. They can easily be identified by the unique seam in the back that loops around the top of the booty and back down the other leg. Originally, the bell of the jeans would start at the knee and were super wide on the bottom. They were also very high waisted. My mom is wearing them in the photo directly above and the photo where she’s throwing the football 😊 I’m a big fan of 70’s fashion and thought it would be cool if I could find a pair of my own Dittos. After much searching online I found these pair for $29!  They had the classic seam around the back and that 70’s bell bottom that I love. I was so stoked they fit me without having to alter the length. My mom also said that girls would always tie their shirts up in knots, so I decided to style my Dittos with a white and green ringer tee tied up. Thanks for the inspiration Mom! Love you ✌🏼️❤️
