little vintage style v.30


Welcome to Little Vintage Style, a place to show off your sweet little ones wearing vintage! Link up every Wednesday, and make sure to click around and say 'hello!' to all of the other vintage lovin' mamas like you!

**********

Hello! So I guess I am technically cheating on this weeks post, but I thought I would share some of our old family photos (and totally not because I haven't taken any pictures of my kids since Halloween).  This first one is a real gem and one of my favorites. My mother and two oldest sisters in matching handmade stripes/apples outfits. A part of me really wants to reenact this picture with my own two girls, I know my mom would think it was hilarious. I do find myself matching my kids on accident with similar color schemes and styles frequently, how about you?



When I was young we lived in California. That little beach baby is me, and my sister just above me is standing by the stroller. My sister and I are about the same age difference as LM and Lark, and when I look at these pictures I can't help but see them. I was so happy when I found out I was having another girl because I know what having a sister so close in age is like - awesome! I also found a jacket pretty similar to this one that I am looking forward to Lark wearing this Spring.


Here I am at 8 months and 3 years, the same ages LM and Lark are now. I thought it would be fun to make a comparison. I can still remember hating that red calico dress - I did not want to wear it and I'm pretty sure I made that clear in the picture! To this day I very rarely wear red. Some things never change.


And, here is Husband at 1 year and 2 years (the closet ages I could find to the girls). I think LM looks more like him, but Lark looks more like me. What do you think?


Hope you enjoyed a little peek into our past! If you'd like, link up below...
