This week's Little Vintage Style features a dress I've already shown. You may remember this sweet ensemble from Easter.
Well, we're moving from Easter to Halloween (the skeleton I picked up thrifting was the only way to get her to pose for some pictures!).
I used the dotted-swiss dress without the pinafore, then added modern leggings and some brighter accessories.
If she wears vintage to preschool, I usually try to tone it down a bit, because I don't think that many people in Florida really "get" vintage, so I don't want her to stand out too much in her class!
It's crazy how much older she looks in these photos vs. the ones from Easter! She looks like a little girl now- no more baby here!
I took my free time yesterday (while Avery was in school for the morning) to do some painting! Oh, I just love doing this kind of piece! No rules, no photos to incorporate, just fun, fun, fun!
I also did a piece in Noah's journal this week about learning to swim.
I've really slacked off on doing pieces in the boys' journals, unfortunately. I haven't done a piece for Riley for almost a year! I'm kind of trying to decide whether I want to continue with them, or do them until they turn five (Riley's last piece was about turning five, and Noah will turn five next year). While I love that we have these books, I don't enjoy working in them as much as I used to. My style has changed, and I'd so much prefer to do fun pieces like the one above...
Anyway, I'm just thinking out loud there. Didn't mean to get all serious on you!
Hope you're all enjoying the beginnings of fall! Here in Florida, we're just starting to have some really nice days, and I'm looking forward to being able to wear cardigans and jeans in a few weeks if I'm lucky!
