Little Vintage Style & Other Miscellany

Here's Miss Avery in another vintage Polly Flinders dress, paired with jeggings from Target and thrifted boots. 

 This sort of combo is such an easy choice for mixing vintage and modern.  The leggings keep the dress from feeling overly fussy, while still allowing the dress to be showcased, if that makes sense!

We had a fun little photoshoot this time around.  She seemed to enjoy finding different ways to pose for me.  I found this My Little Pony toy at the thrift store, and Avery is in love!  She sings and dances, so Avery was following along!

 Then she set off to "clean" the bench...

 ...and stand on it!

And finally, she proceeded to pick up a stick and say, "Boing, boing, boing!" and pretend she was on a pogo stick!  I have no idea where she picked that up!  

Thanks for all the bedspread love in the last post!  Can you believe that I wavered as to whether to buy them?  Six dollars a piece seemed a little steep to me for thrift prices, and I just couldn't picture them in the room.... I'm so glad I went with my instincts though!

Anyway, the post sparked a question from Lynxymama about Avery's room: 
have you taken pic of miss a's bedroom? i would love to see her space too!

Well, I haven't taken photos of her room recently.  Here  and here and here are some bits and pieces, but I've rearranged things multiple times.  I'd actually love to do a tour of her room, but we're in a transition stage right now.  She's close to being potty-trained (meaning we can lose the changing table soon), and close to moving from the crib to a toddler bed.  So both of those things will mean some further rearranging.  Once we've accomplished those things, and I've got her room redecorated, I promise I'll do a real tour though.  Next to my studio, her room is my favorite room in the house!

To those others of you who asked me questions, I'll answer them soon!  

A final bit of miscellany.  I'm honored to have been given the Liebster Blog Award  by Barbara and Alicia from A Mother and A Daughter!  Thank you so much, ladies!!

I always enjoy your little vintage style posts. Your daughter looks so darling in such feminine pieces. You have such a great eye. If ONLY my Josie would consent to girly clothes!!! Love the doll clothes cupboard. Emma has "almost" the exact same one. Her American girl doll clothes are store in it.

Avery is just so cute, I'm sure she will love to come thrifting with you as a birthday treat when she is a teenager, we started doing it the year Isabella was 13. most years we have managed the actual day of her birthday but this year she was off meeting goverment officials as part of a youth delegation to a big environmental conference so we went a week later

Ok, every single thing about your photos are perfection. Of course, Avery herself, then the outfit (love the dress and jeggings combo!), and that My Little Pony. Finley needs one just like it!

What a sweet room for a sweet girl!

Simply darling! I love the mix of vintage with leggings, just perfect.

Manda said...

such a cute combo - you can't go wrong with jeggings!! little avery looks perfect! and i love those last pictures where she was pretending it was a pogo stick!

i love that you were hesitant because the prices seemed high!! i am the same way out thrifting - i get so disgusted by some of the prices i see on things!!
