Those summer nights, '80s style
It wasn't until I turned 30 that I realized just how much my mom and I had in common: we both loved her style. At 17 Sophie Vandenbrouck is light years ahead of me. She writes:
"This is a picture of my mom, Adriana, when she was in her 20s. This photo was taken somewhere in Mexico by my dad. There is no date on the picture but it must have been taken around the 1980s. I found this while organizing my old school stuff, and I gasped as soon as I saw it. When I showed it to my dad he stared at it for a second and then said only, "I remember that swimsuit." I showed it to my sister and she insisted on making it her profile picture, but I got to keep the original picture. This picture shows off a carefree side of her that I never knew but I know existed from her stories of her youth. I feel like we would have been good friends if I did know her back then."
