Happy Monday, friends! I have spent my Monday seriously dying on the couch with the worst pain in my knees, so I hope yours has been better than mine! I've had problems with my knees all my life, and the pain just seems to be getting worse and worse.
 
Anyway, I'm so in love with this top for many reasons. The main reason being, it was my Aunt Kathy's. She got this top when she went on an LDS mission in Paraguay. She passed away in 2001 from ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease) and then my grandma inherited it. After my grandma died in 2012, all of the grandchildren were going through her stuff, and out of all the piles of her stuff, we found this. When I found out it was my Aunt Kathy's, I knew this was the one thing I wanted to take home with me. I've only worn it one other time, but when I do wear it, I seriously feel special. Something about it just makes me feel, I don't know, safe. I just love it.

  11. You look so smoldering/sexy in that first pic! These photos are amazing and how cool is that wall?! That's awesome that this shirt belonged to your Aunt. My Great-Grandma passed away earlier this year and I got to keep some vintage clothes and a few other trinkets of hers. They're so dear to me, I know that feeling you're talking about :)
    I hope your knees feel better! That's awful!
