Memory is a way of holding onto the things you love, the things you are,
the things you never want to lose.
~From the television show The Wonder Years
Today I felt like wearing something very out of the ordinary for me...pants! I've gotten several questions, even an email asking if I only ever wear dresses and the truth is ... most of the time I do simply because it is what I feel most comfortable ...flowy, free, and not confining. However, today was a new day and I came across this little striped number in my grandmother's drawer that was the most loverly shade of seaside blue. Now I was so completely tempted to work them into an outfit, especially after seeing sweet Michal of North County Girl in her quite amazing pants outfit a few days earlier.
If you've been reading along I know it seems I've been wearing a lot of my grandmother's clothes lately. Since she passed away in February, she left behind so many lovely things. Some of those things being a whole drawer full of jewelry and some clothing. I feel very comforted sitting down and sorting through it because I know that this is exactly what she would want me to do. As a little girl, she always let me rummage through her little star covered jewelry box and wear whatever I pleased. It was always something I looked forward to when I visited her house. I love thinking back and remembering this. And as she looks down on me, I know she is smiling, remember these things too.
Have a gorgeous weekend little darlings!
