ClothesHorse 's Thoughts:

So this shirt is a gift from my sister, but it’s got an amazing history. Several years ago my sister was in college and she studied for a semester in Greece. While in Greece when spring break rolled around she decided to fly solo to Thailand…without telling anyone. The family found out when she had several bags stolen and had to call to get information confirmed for a new passport. This shirt survived the perils and came back (eventually) to the United States with her. I shameless harrassed her to let me borrow it for years and then just this year she gave it to me!
Really it’s the least she can do since now my parents seem rather paranoid about letting their other daughters study abroad…I swear the last thing I heard before I flew to Japan last spring was "don’t even think about leaving that country unless it is to come home." Sigh. _

*lol* This is a good story! I can really imagine your parents with you at the airport! The shirt's very cute, and clothes with history are even better than pieces which are "only" chic!

I agree! Sometimes that is why vintage appeals to me, I try to picture what happened to the original wearers in them...

I wouldn't have thought to pair that top with shorts, but it looks fab. You come up with so many great, surprising combinations! chic for sure.

Thanks! The pieces all gave me the same "relaxed" vibe so I thought they might work.
