Wee Vintage Wednesdays

I recently came across a blog called Hart & Sew (thanks Pinterest!) and about fell over at all the eye candy going on over there!  She is a cute mom with fantastic style who also loves to dress her wee ones in vintage clothing (she also sells children’s vintage items in her Etsy shop!).  She does a feature every wednesday with the cutest vintage clothes and encourages her readers to dress their little ones in vintage, blog about it and share their link!  I think it is so fun!  So, I think I will try to make every wed. a wee vintage post.  Sometimes it will be thrift store finds and other times it will be things I have upcycled using vintage fabrics or vintage patterns!  Here are a few posts I have already participated in.  If this makes you feel all squishy inside, like me, why don’t you join in the fun? 🙂  I entered myself twice this week, hope that is ok!  I had already made Violet a darling shirt from a vintage sheet.

I recently found a bunch of wonderful boy vintage items at the thrift store.  Frankly that doesn’t happen very often so I was really stoked!  I love to dress Rowan in vintage but I only had a couple of pieces for him that I inherited from my mother in law (my husband used to wear them as a baby).  You can see one outfit here.

The overalls are the thrift store find and the shirt is from the above mentioned outfit.  He is only going to have a few weeks to wear these sadly, it is turning cold here now and these for sure will not fit him next summer 😦  Oh well, enjoy it while it lasts, right? I just love overall shorts on chunky little thighs! 🙂  I also love the nautical detail on the shorts.  I love nautical themes on clothing.  I just found a vintage sheet with little anchors all over it, but that is for another day 😉  The reds in the shirt and shorts matched perfectly!

The moccasins are another thrift store find and are vintage Minnetonka.  We have a couple pairs of their moccasins, so adorable! 🙂

Outfit details:

Shirt and overalls – vintage (shirt was my husbands as a baby)

Shoes – vintage Minnetonka moccasins.

Have a fantastic Wednesday! 🙂

    I am excited about your Wee Vintage Wednesdays. I have grandchildren, ages 5, 3 1/2 , 2, and 1. I love the style that I use to dress their parents in back in the day.

    Absolutely perfect!! I love it! I never found any good boy vintage when my sons were little- thankfully I also had a girl to cutesy up!

    He looks adorable! Even when he outgrows them I think they would look super sweet on your baby girl when she grows into them. Maybe pair it with a white tee, some cute sandals and big red hairbow and it would make a gorgeous little girl set too.
