The moment I saw this shirt I was reminded of my grandmother. The colors and pattern were popular in her home decor and wardrobe as was the robe sleeve like draping - she was quite the fabulous dresser in her day and around the house favored frocks we affectionately called "Mimie gowns". Something about this top gave me flashbacks of Mimie gowns and I just had to have it. Funny how certain items can evoke vivid memories. Though I have a few pieces from her closet, it's nice to incorporate some modern items that feel just as sentimental. I was thrilled to take these pictures on the street I grew up on in Tennessee, the street where she and my grandfather built a home, raised a family, made wonderful memories and where their children would eventually live with their children. Being back there soothes my soul. There's no place like home.
Do you have any special sentimental items in your closet? Do share.
P.S. Please forgive the wrinkles, it's a huge pet peeve of mine but I couldn't pass up this photo opp, steamer or not.
