We’ve loved playing dress up since we were little girls, and now that she has a little girl of her own, I guess we’re passing that tradition on to the next generation.

My sister wore some of my high waisted flares, my striped mustard navy crop, and my thrifted belt for her 70’s Mama look. (Swapping instead of shopping–hey hey.)

Rose Baby Boutique provided my niece’s boho outfit. Rose Baby is a family owned business that operates through Facebook, giving their customers outfit updates in their newsfeeds if they’re a member of the group. I’m a huge fan of the owners and the cute boho baby looks the small shop offers. If you want to check them out, visit rosebaby.sale/shop. (Also, my niece wore Style #sku7 and Style #sku5.)

If any other mamas or families want a vintage inspired shoot, let me know! I’d love to provide some fun photo memories for you ❤️

Expired Film Roll: 2014-2017

I’ve had a love affair with film photography for a few years now. When I was 17 I even tried to create a blog about it, but that ultimately failed because its price to develop always deterred me.

Why I thrift

I haven’t always loved thrift shopping.

thrifting

I say that because I’ve been thrift shopping for a long long time.

Be it the divider between the lower and upper middle classes, or just my mom loving to get a deal, going to thrift stores and flea markets was a part of my childhood I always hated.

I distinctly remember always griping about the dusty smell making my “nose itch” and yearning for the chance to go to the mall. But, shopping at the mall for a 7-year-old is neither prudent or sustainable…I soon later found out. Continue reading “Why I thrift”
