That Old Thing.

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.

  1. Well hello, shawl. My closet needs you! lol.

  2. That floral top is so pretty! I loved how you styled it.

    Visiting you from Monday Mingle.


  3. I love that shawl! And I know exactly what you mean about a smell taking you back in time. My mom has given me clothes and they smell like her...I love that! I even borrowed an old book from my Grandpa, and with every page I turned, I could smell his house. It's amazing the memories that are carried within the smell or feel of something!! Stopping by from Miscellany Monday, have a beautiful day!! :)

  4. Love how you tied the shawl in front. Such a gorgeous piece!

  5. i love finding pieces that bring back such memories - those pieces you just can't seem to part with. i have a bunch in my closet that i can never bring myself to get rid of. that shawl is beautiful and looks beautiful on you. <3
    i hope your weekend was wonderful.

  6. Gorgeous look! I love how our closets are a piece of our history!
