Chambray top and sentimental skirt | Dearest Lou

Chambray top and sentimental skirt

I wore this outfit on Saturday to go play laser tag. We are big fans of laser tag over here at the Harvard residence, we even have an unlimited pass to go play at any of the Trafalga locations. Tiana slept over on Friday night and we went off to play laser tag! Unfortunately, Daryl couldn't join us since he had work that evening. Daryl and my sister both made fun of me for wearing a maxi skirt to go play laser tag but out of everything in my closet it doesn't get more comfortable than a maxi skirt! They are so pretty, flowy, and easy to move around in. 

When my grandmother passed away earlier this month there were still a few pieces of her wardrobe that my sister and I wanted to keep and cherish. One of these items was this GORGEOUS maxi skirt. I'm so glad my mama grabbed the two maxi skirts she had, she knew I would definitely wear them. I love the colors and print of the skirt. 

My grandma had SO MUCH JEWELRY. I don't even know where to begin to explain.. I swear if she wore a different piece every day it would take a decade to go through it all! I was able to take a few items that I really liked so throughout the remainder of my outfit posts don't be surprised if you see one or two of my grandmother's pieces of jewelry. The eagle necklace that I'm wearing surprisingly belonged to my dad. I believe he got it after he received his eagle scout. I love eagles.. actually I love all birds so he told me that I could have it since he wouldn't be wearing it.

Shirt: Old Navy || Skirt: c/o Grandma Carol || Shoes: Thrifted || Necklace: Gift from my dad

PS: I got a  haircut on Friday, what do you guys think?

  28. Aww, I love this. :) Clothing of family members and loved ones are great; though my aunt (who largely raised me) passed away when I was 8, I still regularly wear her clothes and feel close to her. I'm glad you have such nice things to hold on to and remember her by! The eagle necklace from your dad is really neat, too. :)
