In honor of Mother’s Day, (and mom’s everywhere), we are rolling out a whole week of our regular Momspiration Monday feature as “Momspiration Mother’s Day”, starring several women who inspire us most.

Today’s mom is designer and the new star of VH1’s “Candidly Nicole,” Nicole Richie. The style icon and mom of two not only inspires us on a sartorial level but she happens to be one of the funniest girls around.

Below, she shares an amazing photo of herself and her mother in an image that proves that Nicole’s fashion sense struck early on (check out the shoulder pads!) as well as one of the most important lessons her mother taught her.

Nicole Richie and Mom

“My mother taught me to always keep your head up and smile, even through the toughest times… Like while wearing a green quilted jacket.”
