Comments:
A couple of days ago, my mom came up to me and presented me with this old denim shirt that used to be my father's. At first, I thought it was kind of weird for her to be giving me my father's shirt (I mean, it is a man's shirt and it is an XL), but once I tried it on I thought it was pretty cool for me to wear my father's shirt.

I always feel special when I'm wearing something that is linked somehow to a loved one. Today, for example, I felt like I carried my father with me all day. I daydreamed and wondered what my father did while wearing this shirt, like gardening or playing with me and my brother's when we were kids. It's funny how a simple old shirt can get me imagining such fun memories :)

Have you inherited clothes from your mom or dad? Or someone else in your family?

Here are all the ways in which I've worn this skirt:
