Have you ever smelled a scent or picked up an article of clothing that brought you back in time?
Right back to a moment just by the smell or feel of it?
This happens to me a lot. I'm nostalgic like that. I wrote about that here.
This happened to me again this weekend.
I bought a shawl about 6 years ago that I just loved. I wore it probably every other day.
It must have been put away with the old sweaters & forgotten about. Easy to do when you have moved 6 times in the last 6 years. Yesterday, we had some shopping to do. I was digging around in my winter outerwear trying to find something to throw on. Out came the shawl from years ago. And just like that I was brought back to where I was when I first bought this shawl. I ran my fingers over the knitted material, stuck in a memory. After a few moments of reminiscing, I threw it on over my floral blouse & cross tank.
I remembered how much I loved this shawl.
Granted, it would go a lot better with a different outfit, I loved finding this old piece & letting it take me back in time.
Do you have a piece of clothing that reminds you of something or a time in your life?
A piece that you plan to keep for some time to come? I'd love to hear your stories.
