In Loving Memory

"We'll spend the rest of our lives chasing memories like the wind, catching glimpses of you through the parting of the sky and the ebbing of the sea..."

Beloved.

It's been a little while since my last post here, and for those of you who follow me on Instagram you'll know that I took a bit of time off for myself to spend with family after my grandmother passed. My grandmother was an extremely special lady to all those who knew her, and the only word to describe her would be beloved. I wanted to dedicate today's post to my grandmother -- a beautiful woman inside and out. When you lose someone you love, you find small ways to honor them and remember them. Their things that are passed on to you become the things you cherish most because aside from your memories, it's all you have left. Today, I'm wearing a pair of my grandmother's vintage shoes that remind me of CĂ©line's, and also a sweater that she knitted herself: fittingly in light purple, her favorite color. 

For my Ahma:
Forever loved and missed...In loving memory.
{1921-2016}

Besos,
RC
