Vintage Maternity Style at 33 Weeks

We spent a beautiful Sunday walking around Balboa Park with my sister, who is in town visiting from Taos, New Mexico. It has been such a nice visit, and I loved watching her and Lucy interact and run wildly through the park (I may have joined them, but my pace is much slower these days!!). […]

Vintage Maternity at 31 Weeks

We are back from the most wonderful (though entirely too short) vacation. I will share some photos from our trip in the coming days, but until then, here is my quickly expanding belly in one of my most comfortable 1950s maternity tops. As comfortable as it is, I think it may only accentuate how enormous […]

Vintage Maternity at 29 Weeks

I hope you all had a great weekend. Ours was nice and relaxed, with a surprising douse of rain. I so much love a summer rain, even if it turns our dry desert heat into the sticky hot tropics for a couple of days. Everything smells so nice and clean after a good rain. With […]

Vintage Maternity at 28 Weeks

Shortly after my I announced my pregnancy I got a message from a friend on Twitter, offering me a bunch of vintage maternity clothes that she no longer had a use for. It was one of the nicest gifts I have ever received–a huge box of gorgeous vintage maternity tops, dresses, and skirts from the […]

Bathing Beauties

Our few days of very warm weather last weekend really got me in the mood for summer. Yes, spring has only just arrived, but I am daydreaming of days outdoors and walking barefoot along the beach (as I know most of the country is!). A few days ago I got lost browsing the Life photo […]

Wearing History Trousers

We are just back from a very short weekend trip to Palm Springs. I have a lot of exciting things planned for this blog (I am ready to get re-involved and make it the space I originally set out for it to be!), but I will get into that a bit more in my next […]

It’s Coat Weather!

It is finally getting to be coat weather here, and I really couldn’t be happier. Our cool weather is so short lived in Southern California that I really try to fully embrace it, sometimes even pulling out the sweaters a month early just because I am getting anxious for the season to change. I have […]

A Navy Dirndl Skirt

I finished sewing this skirt earlier in the week. It is actually the second one I have made, and was such a snap to sew up. I think it is my absolute favorite style of skirt, it is pretty and so comfortable. This one was made of a lightweight cotton lawn in navy, which is […]

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween! Lucy and I dressed up yesterday for a Halloween party. I wasn’t planning on dressing up (I never do), but at the last minute I decided to roll my hair in tight curls and pull together this I Love Lucy costume. I have always thought about dressing as her, but it has always […]

What I Wore

Top: Thrifted Skirt: Capricorn Vintage Shoes: Thrifted Today was a bit of a sad day. I sent a really amazing piece of vintage through the mail to Tasha of By Gum By Golly, and it arrived shattered. I feel like I packed it well, but I can’t help feeling sad and a bit guilty that […]
