it takes me back

You know how sometimes, you taste something or smell something, and that taste/smell takes you back to sometime in your memories that until that moment you had completely forgotten about? Whenever I eat Yoplait mixed berry flavored yogurt, it takes me back to my 2nd grade cafeteria because I used to pack that in my lunch. Recently when I was home, I used some of my Mom's Mary Kay night cream. The smell of that night cream takes me back to childhood. It's the way my Mom always smelled every night as she read to me and then tucked me in. Smelling that cream reminds me of her in her cream colored velour robe and reading this book every single night. My Mom let me bring the cream back to NYC with me so that when I' m feeling homesick or lonely I can always be reminded of that scent. It's weird how the senses function like that, isn't it? Do you ever have those moments?

I was going through some of my old pictures and came across this. Whoever this is, looks so fresh and chic. I love the simplicity of the outfit. My favorite part is her clutch. I love finding vintage leather report cases or briefcases and using them as clutches. The worn in color of the leather is the perfect compliment to her look.
