I believe in white shirts, not ghosts

 Ahhhh, there is just something about a white shirt, isn't there?

Oxford - Target
Locket - thrifted
Silhouette charm bracelet - www.roadsidebridge.etsy.com
Jeans - Earnest Sewn
Shoes - thrifted Enzo Angiolini

My "snake duck shoes"

Locket (I should have taken a photo of the inside, which still contains the photo of an old man):

Silhouette bracelet (Each face has a name engraved on it: David, Diane, Scott, Barbara, James) I'm assuming these were someones children's names...

Both of these pieces of jewelry are so interesting to me... I know you can't keep everything forever, but why would you get rid of a bracelet engraved with the names of your children (I'm assuming)... I mean, even if she died, wouldn't one of the kids want to keep it?? Did the old man in the locket die? Get divorced from the woman who put his picture in the locket? I'm fascinated by the things that are left behind... I'm really glad I don't believe in ghosts because my house is full of possessions of the dead (including a really awesome WWII jacket that makes me nervous...)  I guess I DO believe in ghosts, I just DON'T... I think there are people who CAN see and feel spirits and I don't want to be one of those people so I shut out that whole possibility... I don't believe so they don't visit... know what I mean?

Sorry it got all creepy on you there...

So, so cute! I adore those shoes and a crisp white shirt never goes out of fashion. I'm with ya on the kid charm bracelet thing- heck, I should do one for my cats! :)

I ADORE the way you've styled that shirt, lady. And I seldom give a thought to the previous owners of the used stuff I buy, but you're right. With items that sentimental you've got to wonder what caused the owner to give them up.

Ooh, that bracelet would definitely get me thinking...can't imagine why anyone would part with it. Love your take on the classic white shirt!

I even once purchased a vintage picture in a frame that had the message on back "please don't give away"... obviously they did or I wouldn't have found it at the local charity shop. I have a childrens profile charm bracelet too and wondered why it was let go.

would you be horrified to know that i don't own a white shirt? well maybe ONE but it never sees the light of day. i'm too much of a klutz for white!
your jewelry IS fascinating- seems like these would be heirloom pieces. but some folks just aren't sentimental, i guess?

Ooh that is a little eerie about that bracelet, but so cool to try figure out the story behind it...

You look adorable! I just LOVE those jeans!

I'm a huge advocate of having several white button downs just because it's so easy to look dressed up or down in them. It really is the perfect staple.

I agree, something about wearing a white shirt makes me feel fabulous. I have way too many!

I once worked in a used bookstore, and it was always fun to find things in the books - old photos, pressed flowers, all kinds of things!

There is definitely something about a white shirt. I love the classic look and you have put your unique spin on it. Love the jewelry and love thinking about all of the "maybes" when it comes to items such as these.
