Mama Style

Vintage Dress: Buffalo Exchange
Jewelry: Family hand-me-downs
Shoes: Swedish Hasbeens
Scarf: Thrifted Cacharel
Backpack: Target
(Bandana: My Dad:)

We've been readjusting to our normal schedule over here after five days of eating out and site seeing with my parents. It was so nice to see them and spend a good chunk of time with them, but its taken a while for us to get back into our usual groove. My little lady took a three and a half hour nap the day that they left!

I can't get over how excited I am about this little cloth backpack. Its going to be my new diaper bag now that our daughter is walking and running around on her own. She's been mobile for quite some time, but recently I've found that trying to bend over to help her or talk to her (not to mention chase her around) with a giant diaper bag on my shoulder isn't really working. I love the Moop bag that we originally bought so much that it'll become my personal tote bag. And the bandana is a must. My dad gave us two to put in her diaper bag and use as makeshift bibs, if needed. I just like having something of his with us all the time.

The dress is pretty great too and this is the first time I've worn it (although its been in the closet for a while). I kept waiting for a special occasion, but then realized its something I can easily wear any old day. I love all of the 40's details, but think it was made by a home sewer, based on an old pattern.  The fabric, neckline and little bow, mother of pearl-esque buttons and scalloped front make it such a charming little frock.
