Vintage dressing…


 When I was in my 20’s, I’d say about half of my wardrobe was vintage.  I would wear vintage 50’s dresses to work, and had more vintage cardigans and coats than anyone in their right mind should have.  Oh, and beautifully embroidered vintage blouses?  Yeah, I had my fair share of those too.  Over the year I got rid of most of the dresses and shirts, although I still wear most of my vintage coats.  This dress is actually a nightgown (I think?!), but it’s so easy to just throw on with flip flops and head out the door.  Plus…Maya said “Mommy, you’re a PRINCESS!” when I put it on, which is basically a win no matter what 🙂Blog Vintage Dress Sand Jewel tie Sandals-1 Blog Vintage Dress Sand Jewel tie Sandals-2Um…someone wasn’t so sure about looking at the camera haha.  Honestly, I’m always so surprised by how often she smiles at a camera on a tripod!  And, yes, she has rain boots on. Or, as Sesame Street calls them “Galoshes” Pretty much her favorite boots, and even thought it was mid 80’s, with no rain in site…she wanted to wear them.  And, obviously, I let her. 🙂Blog Vintage Dress Sand Jewel tie Sandals-3Maybe the tripod was giving her the stink eye HA! Blog Vintage Dress Sand Jewel tie Sandals-4“Tickle me??!!”  She’s obsessed with being tickled, and I’m always happy to oblige 🙂 Blog Vintage Dress Sand Jewel tie Sandals-5 Blog Vintage Dress Sand Jewel tie Sandals-6 Blog Vintage Dress Sand Jewel tie Sandals-7“Mom, LOOK, LOOK!!!  It’s a ladybug!”Blog Maya 145 Weeks Gymboree Lime Dress Galoshes-1And, then the ladybug flew! 🙂Blog Maya 145 Weeks Gymboree Lime Dress Galoshes-2“Mom, LOOK, LOOK ‘Cars coming!!'”  Yes, I’m always saying that to her, so she’s always pointing them out to me.  Right after, she started counting them.  “One…two….three…”  The best is when we are IN the car driving down the street.  “MOM!  Car’s coming!!”  🙂Blog Maya 145 Weeks Gymboree Lime Dress Galoshes-3Blog Maya 145 Weeks Gymboree Lime Dress Galoshes-4I don’t even know what was going on here, and I tried thinking up something funny to go along with this, but…I drew a blank.  It’s funny enough on it’s own though!  I welcome any captions 🙂Blog Maya 145 Weeks Gymboree Lime Dress Galoshes-5On me…
