Chris's Checkered Shirt


Clothes become part of who you are, your memories, your life. Which is why when Chris leaves town for a day or two, I'll sneak into his closet  and wear something of his so I can feel close to him. He doesn't get it, he thinks I have enough clothes (um, is there such a thing?) so why rummage through his stuff, but by wearing something that is Chris's I feel connected to him. Maybe this is the grown up equivalent to wearing your boyfriend's varsity jacket? Whatever the reasoning - Chris, I wore your checkered shirt while you were away. Here it is. Deal with it, bud.


So tell me, do you guys feel all sentimental about clothing the way I do? When my dad was sick, I started wearing one of his old sweaters around the house. I always wear pieces of jewelry my mom gives me. When I see a friend I haven't seen in a while, I'll make sure to wear something that gave me, or might have a special meaning for her.  Am I alone on this?

I also have to thank so many of you who shared your thoughts on ethical uses of Photoshop on yesterday's post. Loved reading what you guys thought.

  2. I know what you mean Natasha :) When my boyfriend was away, somehow I used to find it better to wear his t-shirts. Btw, red lisptick looks so great on you!

  4. I totally get the connection too. It's a comforting thing to wear something that belongs to your husband. That shirt looks great on you:) Happy Thursday morning sweetie. Muah

  5. I love the idea and the sentiment but I've never actually done it myself. Maybe because my husband is significantly taller and broader than me and I'd swim in his clothes. But I do like wearing jewelry or another token given to me by someone when I see them - my mother in particular! I'm jealous you can fit into Chris's stuff and have it look so good. :)

  19. While clothing can definitely make me feel sentimental or nostalgic, I feel more sentimental about books, jewelry, home wares, and trinkets given to me from loved ones than their clothing.

  28. This is such a sweet post and I love the outfit! I feel the same way about clothes, smells, sounds, etc...maybe it's human nature to attach sentimental value to these little things.

  32. i like hairstyles i want to say that these are the personality maker thing and i like them.hairstyles are a primitive one and often linked with the popular hairstyles and demanding styles in 60s and 70s both in men and women. A parallel hairstyles approach is still followed for girls and women in modern hairstyles amazing hairstyle medium hairstyles with a little untidy that confers a rock & roll look to your hair. This curly hairstyles. style has gone through slight changes over the time. Unlikely to older styles
