My Mama in Color

I absolutely dig this shirt. My father made it for my mother back in '87. Her face graces the tee. I find myself throwing this on when I have nothing else to wear. Pajamas? I throw it on. Going grocery shopping? I throw it on with my leggings and boots and I'm out. I'll wear it over a dress, or with shorts..it doesn't matter. People always ask where I bought it, and I'm lucky to say it's one of a kind. I am utterly inspired by this piece lately. My favorite thing about it are the vibrant colors after all these years.
