POP!

2/10/12


if you follow me on instagram (kimgenevieve) then you may have already read a little something about this top.  while in florida last month, my mother gave me a box full of my grandmother's possessions including this adorable floral top. the box included vintage quilts and 50's rompers. i feel so lucky to be able to hold on to these items that were once used by my grandmother. i paired the top with a bright yellow skirt because let's be honest, it still feels like summer in los angeles. xo

The floral top looks divine :) How lucky you are to still have some of your grandma's possessions. That's hard to come by these days, when people through away things once they are out of fashion.
