Good morning! Technically…….(12:06 a.m. here in good ole NY). I am getting this post in because who knows how tomorrow will go. This week features my little Violet girl. She is wearing a smock/swing top/dress…….not quite sure what to call it other than adorable, that I found a while back and just found in storage as I was organizing and putting the summer clothes away.
Now, this top is handmade and I am not positive that it is really vintage. It looks like a vintage cut/style, so I am going with it 🙂 I simply adore the fabric print, it looks like little cherries, but messy cherries……does that even make sense? Remember, midnight here and my brain has already gone to bed 😉
It is smocked completely by hand (as in not a pre-gathered panel that has then been embroidered). Gosh I am a sucker for smocking. I fully intend to learn this skill. It makes my insides all jello like….love.
There is also smocking on the sleeves at the wrist making it flare out all ruffly over her hands. Totally adorable. She is showing off the large fake spider she found while walking back from the bus stop. Some poor trick or treater must have dropped it last night.

It is so flowy and perfect for little girl twirls….she loves to twirl 🙂
We paired it with some skinny jeans and moccasins. Yum.
It was a perfect and WARM fall day today. It was lovely. Happy Wednesday!
Shirt – vintage (I think), handmade and thrifted
Pants – Old Navy skinny jeans
Shoes – moccasins by Exhilaration
Hair bow – made by me (wool felt)
Have a nice sleep and wonderful day everyone!
