I was in a teen consignment shop today (Plato's Closet).
Ramona Mom to 2 great kids and wife to one wonderful hubby since 1990!
I would wear similar casual clothes to DD
I do have some hoodies and T-shirts from places like Aeropostale and American Eagle, and I don't feel uncomfortable in those, but there are some styles I wouldn't buy because I think they're too trendy/skimpy and I'd look silly. The bigger problem for me is that I look younger than I am, and my daughter looks older than she is, so when we're dressed similarly, we get mistaken for a pair of teenagers, which sounds flattering but is actually kind of annoying. If I know I'm going to be in a situation where I need to be recognized as the parent--going to DD's school, taking her to the doctor, etc.--then I make a conscious effort to wear something that isn't too young-looking.
Hi and welcome to the board!
With Mike I didn't.....with Lizzie I did feel older than most of her classmate parents.
When you are 50 it will be a great problem to have!
