This sweater was mine when I was little (or Amanda's? I guess she probably wore it first and then I might've worn it as a hand me down). I have it on display in Lyla's nursery, along with other pretty vintage pieces that are too big for her still.
Yesterday was a cool morning and I decided I would try on the sweater. I had to roll the sleeves, but it pretty much fit! I'm glad that it is still a bit too big because this means it will fit her for most of the winter.
This past weekend we spent time with Andrew's family. Lyla acquired a small fortune of new clothes, including this little fuchsia top with hearts all over it. Her matching sandals were a gift from earlier in the summer...now that she is standing they look even CUTER!
The cargo pants were Aurora's...as are a lot of Lyla's clothes. We take good care of Aurora's hand-me-downs because we plan on returning them to Amanda if she has another little girl someday. It is really such a shame how short of a time baby clothes get worn for--which is why when shopping for vintage, baby clothes are a good thing to search for. They're pretty much always in great condition!
