coming home baby





















Wearing blouse by mom, Forever 21 shorts, Hue tights, Geox shoes, vintage blazer, unknown scarf, gifted jewelry, Ray Ban wayfarers.

This blouse is my new favourite addition to my wardrobe, but it took about 4 years for it to arrive in my closet. My grandmother told me about it 4 years ago, but look as she might, she couldn't find it, but then recently she rediscovered it and passed it to my mom to pass on to me. The best part about this blouse is that my mother made it. It's really something special to be able to wear something, and when asked where it's from to say, "my mom made it". I wish I had more clothes made by my mom...maybe I should just ask her to make more.

I hope you're all having a wonderful weekend. It's a long weekend here in Canada, so I've been spending it with my family. Yesterday was the first hot day of the year, and silly me got burnt. :( Anyways, happy weekend to all!

GORGEOUS. In Washington, I went to the Navy Academy. I don't know why, but this outfit reminded me of it! TOTALLY A GOOD THING. Eeek. The boys were so attractive, hahahaah. (Not that you look like a boy. But their uniforms were really attractive and nice and yeah. Anyways. I'M JUST TRYING TO TELL YOU THAT I LIKE YOUR OUTFIT! hahah.)

Also, your mom made that? Woahhhh! Totez thought it was vintage!

This blouse is gorgeous and I absolutely agree - it's SO special to have a family or other connection with items of clothing. And it's even more special when it's hand made. I have 2 dresses and a blouse handmade by my late great grandma (who died when I was a baby) and I love the link that these clothes give me to someone I have come to know through photos and the collection of her hats that now live in my room.
