What I Wore: Shirt (ModBod), Locket (Gift), Skirt ( ASOS via Threadflip and Krystal Bick)
This striped skirt is something else that, like my checked shirt, has been on my To-Get list for awhile now. There is just something about stripes I love so much! Simply irresistible.
Everyone else must feel the same way too, because this skirt was sold out, and my heart broken. However, I kept an eye out, and snagged this one on Threadflip when looking at Krystal Bick's (of This Time Tomorrow) "closet" there. Have you ever tried one of these sites to shop so-and-so's closet? If so, did you like it? Would you buy clothes from other bloggers' "personal" closets, or try to sell some yourself?
The skirt's not the only special item I was wearing this day though. I've actually been meaning to show you this locket for a few weeks, because it has the sweetest story.
This locket originally belonged toThe Boy's mother, and she was the one to put in the photo of the little boy. That's right; that's The Boy up there, all of one year old! As she explained it to me, "I thought I'd have two kids and put their pictures right inside!" Buuuut then she lost the locket and by the time she found it again, she had four kids. Too many for a locket, I guess, but she decided she'd keep it and save it for when The Boy found A Special Someone. Well, you all know About A Boy, and how we met and fell in love. So his mom conspired with my mom, and got a photo of me as a kid too (I'm five in that photo). Now- for the photos it holds, the story behind it, and the effort both our mom's put into it- it's become a favorite piece to wear!
