What SHE Wore Wednesday

In honor of my grandmother's 80th birthday, this week's What I Wore Wednesday post features styles from her past!

This is Joyce Jewell, my grandmother, in 1945 when she was about 15 years old.  I love the eyelet blouse and flower in her hair!

Here is another picture of Grammy Joyce around the same time period...
How awesome is that striped dress?  And the bobby socks?  This is one of my favorite pictures!

My grandmother and grandfather shortly after they were married...
I love how even in the coldest winter months, ladies of the past still wore skirts all the time!  Put on a fur coat and some boots and you're good to go!

Fast forward about 15-20 years and you've got this...
It's a bit fuzzy but you can definitely see a difference in styles of this picture from that of the previous pictures.  Skinny jean shorts, bobbed hair and the cardigan (a classic!) are straight from the '60s!  I'm so glad these pictures were saved from years ago because they are so precious...and there are more where they came from, including pictures from my other side of the family, too!  I will be sure to do another post!


  1. These pictures are treasures for sure. Your grandma is a beautiful woman. Love that striped dress of her. I would wear that now.


    1. Yes! Isn't that striped dress so awesome? I would definitely wear something like that, too! Thanks for stopping by!
