Today we honor Katherine Johnson, NASA mathematician,
whose calculations were integral to the space program. I won’t even pretend to really understand what all she did, but she is a very significant figure in the history of space travel. She was also awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2015. AND she will be 101 on her next birthday!
I couldn’t really find that many photos of her when she was younger, while working at NASA, so I drew inspiration from Taraji P. Henson’s portrayal from the movie “Hidden Figures” for todays outfit.

1960s two-piece outfit, dress and jacket, cotton blend, medium, $40
Double strand pearls, $20
Cat Eye glasses, $12
