I typically name my post based on the first item I choose to pick when getting dressed since I revolve my outfit around that item. Today I am doing things a little differently and choosing the last piece I decided to wear as this post's inspiration.
I picked out the skirt first and worked a warm, outfit around it and realized I needed (or wanted) a splash of color to complete my look. I found this red knit scarf after raiding my mom's dresser. Little did I know it had a little story to it. My great-grandma had knit this scarf and this is the first time I had worn it. My grandma shared this story with me, and it felt almost too precious to be worn. How often do you find items handmade by a great-grand parent? I packed it away back where I found it, folding it neatly, and hoping my great-grandma is glad I brought it out to keep me warm on a chilly Sunday.
(Bella enjoyed playing outside on this chilly day too as you can see! She attacked my boots during while my sister took my photos and was running around chasing leaves. She has so much energy these days!)
