Vintage Gingham

I wasn’t intending doing kid style posts two weeks in a row. But when I took these photos last Friday they were so cute that I just couldn’t not. And besides, I’d been waiting for a while for Isabelle to grow into this gorgeous thrifted dress (almost a whole year); so I think it justifies it’s own blog post.

(Oh, and Noah features a little too – in an ensemble he picked out himself.)

I think at this point (in the photo above), she was showing me her shoes – she really loves her shoes, my girl.

I’m not one of those Mums who avoids dressing their little girl in pink (especially if it is a lovely dusky shade); but I really do like navy and white on a little girl – and gingham especially, it’s just so classic and timeless.

Noah’s Mama-made shorts unfortunately did not last the day – the crotch seam gave out – it was pretty strong but I made them too small, combined with the fact that he’s had a growth spurt recently and still in bulky(-ish) re-usable nappies! (We are doing a double toilet training adventure this Summer, I tell you – although Isabelle has shown more interest and success than he so far!)

It’s ok – I’ll just make some more shorts in a larger size.

Noah wears: Thermal – a hand-me-down from my cousin, Tank - made by me, (now deceased) shorts – also made by me, gumboots – T&T.

Isabelle wears: Vintage gingham dress – local op shop, onesie – hand-me-down from Noah, shoes – hand-me-down from a friend, hair clip – one of mine.

Sorry for bombarding you with so much cuteness (I really can’t help it!)

I love the way you dress your kids and I love how they kind-of match in these shots. I agree gingham = awesome

The gingham is adorable! Isabelle looks like a little doll and Noah's ensemble is very trendy!

A splash of red would be great to match up with navy! A cardigan perhaps?

Oh, what a cute vintage dress- I think a new post is justified for something that cute! What cute little siblings! It's my first time visiting- my son's name is Noah, too!
