When it comes to style, vintage finds are a timeless wardrobe staple. And they’re even better if they’re made by your mom — and even better if your mom happens to be famous. Kate Hudson agrees, and shared herself wearing a nostalgic high school throwback piece on Instagram last night.

The 37-year-old actress and daughter of Goldie Hawn went digging through her (pretty massive) storage unit and uncovered an old old favorite: a hand-knit blue striped sweater her mom made for her, which was a staple in her teenage wardrobe. She threw on the find, and gave her ’90s top a modern twist with a hippie headband, skinny jeans and fall-appropriate gray suede booties.

“Going through storage I found all sorts of gems but my favorite was the sweater Mama Goldie knit me when I was a teenager. Bringing this bad boy out again 💜🙏💜,” Hudson wrote on her Instagram post.

Hawn’s clearly passed down her knitting talent to Hudson, who’s been known to knit a thing or two for friends and family, too. “Starting my xmas knitting 🎄Which brother’s getting this sweater?” she shared on social media a few weeks ago.

The star’s close relationship with her look-a-like mom, whom she refers to as her “confidante,” has definitely helped her inherit everything from Hawn’s knitting abilities to her acting chops.

“I think people get an idea of her spirit and she’s just this wonderful person and she’s a light and she’s a great mom. She’s a very strong presence and she was strict at times,” Hudson told PEOPLE.

“She wasn’t always like what her Instagram shows,” Hudson said. “There’s another side to mom.”
