Mama's Handme Down

My mom wasn't really one to hold on to a lot of our childhood things. We were a military family and we moved a lot so my mom was really good at purging all of the unnecessary. But she did hold on to special things for us to have later on.

One of them was this dress. My MawMaw Anna made it for me when I was a baby. My sister and I both wore it. And now our girls can wear it. I love the fabric of this dress, I love the snap straps. I'm gonna try to knock it off and make her a few more like it because it's perfect for throwing on when it's warm out. Also it looks great over a tee.

Luke had hockey practice that night and it gets cold in there so she wore a sweater over it. This girl is so darn skinny, the sweater is a 6month one that she's been wearing for a year and a half!!

On August:
Dress: Vintage handmade
Shoes: Toms-Silver Sparkles
Purse: Olivia tote from Barnes and Noble

On Luke:
Tee: South of the Border
Shorts: Old Navy
Shoes: Converse from the GapKids

I'm linking up with Morgan over at Mama Loves Papa for Small Style Thursday, go check out all of these stylish munchkins!


  1. So adorable! I love those Toms, too!


  2. Yay!!! Another hockey mom!!! My son plays hockey too. :) That dress is adorable. And extra special because it was made for you. How great is that.

  3. Oh, I wish my mother had held on to more of our clothes! How incredible to be able to dress your little one in something made for you. Love.

  4. That dress is really cute! She looks so cute sitting there with her purse!


  5. So adorable, and such a sweet history to the dress.

  6. Both of your kids are SO cute!
    I am in love with those Tiny Toms! I want some for my daughter, but I am horrible at guessing sizes (even when I measure). I might just have to go for it, though.

    I love you daughter's dress. Some of my favorite things that my daughter wears are my old clothes, not only because they're cute, but they're special, too.

    Thanks so much for linking up! :)

  7. i love that dress and love the fact that it used to be yours even more. how very special! i don't have anything like that and it breaks my heart... and i am probably holding on to too much for my ladies!

    ps- i love that you're from VA too! where i live, i think i know of 3 people tops that have a blog <3

  8. How sweet that she got to wear a dress of yours! My mom never saved any clothing. :( I'm going to have to make sure to save some of my kiddo's clothes!

  9. oh she looks so cute! i love the snap straps with the fabric to match the pocket. how fun for you to dress her in something you once wore!
