Little Vintage Meets Little Modern

Last week I found a small bag of vintage baby clothes at the antique mall.  There were two or three really cute things in the bag (the rest was really ready for the trash), and it made the $5 price tag absolutely worth it!  My very favorite was this little yellow jumper with a duck.  I searched Avery's wardrobe for suitable pieces to work with it, and I just love the combination I was able to pull together!  It's the perfect mix of vintage and modern, I think!

I took the above photos of her in the hallway of Riley's school, but I wasn't really able to get a good photo showing the little duck.  So when we got home, I decided to try again outside.



Well, as you can see, she wasn't in the "posing for photos" mood- she was in the "playing in the swing" mode!  Oh well, I still got some really cute shots of her!

And finally, she obliged with just one, so that you can see that cute little ducky!

See all the other cuties here and here this week!

I love this combination! Not only is the ducky dress super cute, but teamed with those tights(which are a fabulous colour by the way) and the stripe top - the whole things is just perfect! I love it!

I love the mix of modern and vintage. someone needs to teach me how to incorporate vintage into my son's rotation. I can't seem to find what works! But you make it seem so effortless.
