Mother Knows Best?

My mom sent me a care package a couple of weeks ago (although I am waaaaay past college age but I tend to think of care packages as proof that she cares) and inside my box was a link chain belt. Hmmmm, interesting, I thought....I do not, I repeat, NOT let my family shop for me, I am a very specific (i.e. picky) shopper and I like to change aspects of my look so no one knows what look I will gravitate to next. (Like now I am on the lookout for a denim pencil skirt to try a preppy, boho look. But...I digress.) Skeptically, I tried the belt on and I must say, was pleasantly surprised! Chic yet simple, I am looking to pair this with a tank dress, gladiator sandals and multiple bangles. I found a long and a shorter option at one of my fave shopping spots, Forever 21.

And for a mere $10.90 and 16.90, what's not to love?

American Apparel rib racerback dress $26; Gap garment dyed dress $39.50

Urban Outfitters Deena & Ozzy wavelength chain belt $16.99 (on sale!) Forever 21 assorted
chain belt $12.80

White House Black Market multi chain belt $68; Dillards Fossil chain belt $36

But a bigger question looms. Could mom really know what's best for me? Or is this an isolated fashionable incident? The jury is still out on that but thanks, mom!
