lost, but not forgotten

Sometimes I wonder how I can grow so far away from the things that I love – even if they are so close…

Like this jacket with the classic, and my absolute favorite, hound's-tooth check – how has it been so long since it’s kept me warm?

And these Ked’s that I’ve had forever, but have been buried under the soles of my other shoes. 3527545397_46a0ed701d_large

Sure, it’s a sad thing to lose sight of the past – but these things, be it a jacket, a pair of shoes, friends, family, or a picture can always turn back time.

What reminds you of the past?

 

 

 

thanks to we heart it for the picture.

  3. It's so funny...I have different items of clothing that literally make me remember past relationships, triumphs, tragedies, and friendships. I actually hold on to them for sentimental value - I don't actually wear them! Love this post, Emily!! :)

  8. I have so many "clothes" memories. I always remember holidays and my out fit on those holidays. So, when I see a certain sweater, or a pair of sneaks, I think about spending time with family and friends in the past.

  9. Love that coat... Timeless.

    I have a scarf that I've had for years reminds me of so many winter memories. Even just smelling it can bring back past moments.

    Love the coat!

  11. songs always bring back old memories for me. For example, black eyed peas reminds me of a summer (2 or 3 years ago, I believe) ah, it was the best summer of my life. I was so carefree and happy. I love that song now :)

  12. It's always great to unearth hidden treasures from the past. And you will be amazed at how much you kept all these years. I love your houndstooth coat.

  13. I love seeing things I haven't seen in a long time. It's almost like unwrapping a present!
    Converses remind me of the past. And things I still have boxed up in the garage :(

  14. Love that coat. And you've got gorgeous hair.

    A lot of things remind me of the past. It can be a single place, or a single word, that sparks up deja vu.

  15. My journals.. which reminds me that I have been neglecting my journal writing WAY too much. The blog is sort of taking it's place which is sad because I love my journals. I love to read back on the good, the bad, and especially on how far I've come.

    Oooold pictures are fun too. :)
