memories are the beginning of always

caramel baby and child created a gorgeous dress for natalia vodianova's naked heart foundation inspired by her childhood memories. caramel asked myself and a few other bloggers that i deeply admire to write about memories of a favorite childhood outfit or piece of clothing, here is my contribution to the mini series (and isn't the adult version of the dress amazing?)

i had to go through an old box of photos to find one and couldn't tear myself away from the pictures of my mother in her twenties and early thirties. i see her smile every day when i look in the mirror, the same smile that my daughter has. i feel so blessed to have inherited this little piece of sunshine from her. my life is imprinted with the smiles she so freely gives us still.

she is such a babe and my dad is an amazing photographer!

  1. I love looking at old photos like that. My mom and grandmother have dominion over most of the pictures I grew up loving.

    That picture of your mom with that purse on her shoulder reminds me of my mother. That mannerism of hooking the thumb around the shoulder strap reminds me so much of my mother that whenever I find myself doing it I laugh.

  2. I thought it was you and Elodie in that first picture! You both resemble her a lot. Very good genes!

  3. I love the picture with the mountain and forest behind her. It looks like it's from a magazine. You look just like her. By the way, are you going to post pictures from your trip to Bali?

  4. Those are great photos. I particularly liked the first one. It's kind of funny that now we process our digital photos to get the same look that these film photos have.
