It’s no secret that I’m obsessed with vintage, and today I get to show off a couple of pieces that are extra special. Today both girls are wearing pieces from their Great Aunt Jill’s childhood wardrobe – they’ve been kept in the family, you could say. And if there is anything I enjoy more than a good vintage fashion piece, it’s one that is dished up with a nice side of sentiment.
The outfits Clementine & Darla are rocking today thrive on neutrals and one-of-a-kind hand embroidered touches. I believe the blue edging and flowers on Clementine’s piece were put their by her Great Grandmother. I love how gentle the peaches and blues are – so soft that you could almost consider the outfits monochrome. I always try to incorporate modern items into our vintage outfits, so here I matched the girls’ family heirloom fashions with a modern turban headband, knee socks, and shoes from Gap and Zara.
Can I just take a moment to call attention to Darla’s killer knee rolls? Thanks.
