Hello, everyone! Hope you've all had a lovely weekend and are enjoying this beautiful summer. Summers in Philadelphia can often be a challenge for us concrete-jungle dwellers. So I'm extra grateful that, this year, Mother Nature has been taking it easy on us. With no central air in our home and, as someone who really appreciates fresh air, I've enjoyed not having to flick on the window unit much at all. It's especially nice getting ready in the morning without breaking a sweat.
In our home, getting dressed is a cherished part of my everyday, especially when it comes to dressing my daughter! So, I thought it might be fun to share our outfits of the day from time-to-time.
Today, we wore our personal favorite: vintage! I have quite a few friends with children who are curious about vintage but apprehensive to buy or wear it for fear of looking "out of touch." I full-heartedly believe you can take just about ANY piece of clothing and make it current by being confident and accessorizing with modern pieces. Now there IS such a thing as "bad vintage" but what that is exactly is different for every vintage clothing lover. My rule when shopping for myself and my daughter: if it looks like a costume of an era no matter how we accessorize, leave it behind (unless we're in the market for an awesome dress-up piece, of course)!

Mama is wearing a vintage top and vintage denim culottes found and sold by Retrospect Vintage located here in Philadelphia. Wedge shoes are from Old Navy and the vintage sunglasses are thrifted. Styling by Mama. Artistic direction by Haddie ("Let's hold sticks like warriors!")
