Happy Sunday morning to you all! I come to you this morning with yet another gem taken from my grandmother on our most recent visit. I think I've completely cleaned her out now :)
This sky blue sweater is a 1950's JC Penny purchase and I am in love. Anything with a collar, really-give it to me! I actually purchased this skirt with my grandmother also. One of my summers staying with her she took me rummaging and I found this skirt and a matching brown polo. It was one of my very first vintage finds. Who would have guessed it would spark such an interest in fashion for me?
I sometimes think about what my grandmother used to be like as a young girl. Most of my life I've seen her as a strong farm wife/teacher who loves to learn new things and garden up a storm. When I was out to visit the last time though, she got really into finding all of her old clothes and seeing if she could fit into some of them. I saw a different side of her and I wonder if it's been stifled all of these years just a bit by her circumstances. I think she's a girly girl at heart, and I'm coming to see that maybe she and I are a bit more alike than I once thought when I was a kid. I would visit her and feel so awkward because I felt like we had nothing in common. Maybe the recent similarities I'm seeing is just a product of me getting a bit older and all of that nonsense :) In any case I am very grateful to know my grandmother and to carry her with me in such a tangible way.
