HOMAGE TO MY GRANDFATHER

Remembering Veterans Day
Fashion Cliff Notes | Outfit Ideas

Veterans day was always a really fun day for me as a child. While it is a very serious day of remembrance, it meant a day off of school with my grandfather at a fair with a parade. My grandfather served in the United States Army during WWII. He was plucked out of Cajun Country Louisiana on his birthday and sent to the South Pacific to serve in the military. For years my sister and I spent this holiday with him, and he shared this part of his history with us in a jovial way. 

In remembrance of this day and of my grandfather, I fashioned an outfit with his old Army jacket. It's so warm and fits so snugly. He was so petite (tiny)!!! as most Cajun are.

For this Outfit Idea I paired it with burgundy corduroy pants and ballerina flats. Under the jacket is a thin ivory top and bright red vest.

It keeps me warm and makes me very proud.

Happy Veterans Day (this Monday, November 11th)
