Do Over with a Scarf

shirt: Banana Republic (gift) ~ skirt: Gap Outlet ($19) ~ scarf: vintage, my mom's! ~ shoes: ?? via Macy's (?? - circa 2004) ~ earrings: gift (same from Monday)

Date: November 30, 2010
Ensemble message: This outfit is redemption for Monday's, which just felt off to me.  If I could go back and do it again, I would have put this on.  Simple lines but classic with a pencil skirt and scarf.  I normally don't wear my scarves tied like this, and I felt like my grandmother all day.  Which... I really liked!  In fact, by the end of the day, I decided to make it a point to wear more scarves in this old-fashioned way.

Speaking of my darling Grandma (father's side, I sadly never knew my mother's mother), she is such a classy lady.  She loves to tell me stories about working in New York City and taking the Hudson Tubes (now called the PATH).  Grandma apparently loved wearing the highest of high heels too :)  If I can find any pictures of her during her working girl days, I will post them here!

Is there anyone in your family whose style you admire?
