Toddler OOTD #29 - 30 years old
30 years old... Imagine that. Thirty years ago another little girl was wearing that exact same shirt. Running around a park, gleefully jumping on roundabouts, pummeling down slides and climbing on swings, wearing that same shirt.
I obviously don't remember wearing that shirt. Or have I seen it in any photographs either. But my mum informs me that I used to wear it. She has saved a few chosen items from my and my brothers childhood, and now my daughter is wearing them. There are the tartan dungarees, worn a bit thin on the knees, and the little blue socks my brother used to wear.
I love this little shirt - it is cute and summery, and something light and comfortable for her to wear. And best of all, it is proper vintage, and a proper memory from a time long gone. It is strange to think that once (a long time ago) I was this small and doing the same kind of things my daughter is doing now. Running around, care-free, waving hello to everyone walking past us and chasing after other children.
I do wonder if it might last another thirty years for the next generation of our little family?
Shoes: wearing Electro Crocs, earlier neon-pink sandals H&M
Have you found any treasures like this from your parents stashes?
I love that shirt! White shirts always look so pretty with denim! It's amazing that you wore it as a young girl too I think that's so lovely and so sentimental! Here's hoping it last another 30 years like you said xxReplyDelete
It really is quite sentimental, a real treasure :) It would be lovely to have my grand daughter wear it too, that would be just perfect! We shall see :)Delete
Ahh her outfit is just gorgeous! Looks great with denim shorts. So nice that you used to wear it to! xxReplyDelete
White cotton with denim is just such a beautiful and classic look, one of my favourite combinations :)Delete
Wow that is proper vintage! It looks great with the denim shorts. The only thing I've got is a blanket that was knitted for me when I was a baby which Clem had when she was born, also 30 years old! #weekendministyleReplyDelete
That is really sweet too, such a lovely thing to have from your childhood, especially when it was handmade for you. And even better that your baby was able to use it too! :)Delete
Oh my goodness I love that it used to be yours - how sweet! It's so pretty, and I love it with the denim! I need to ask my mum if she's got any of my clothes left! xxReplyDelete
I was surprised when my mom got it out - it was in such a good condition and it really is very pretty, with some lace. And it was so white as well, considering it was 30 years old! Definitely, check with your mum if she is hoarding any treasures, so lovely to have your kids wear them! :)Delete
It looks brand new! My mom has brought me quite a few "proper vintage" items from my toddler hood 30-some odd years ago. I will be posting about some of them over the next year as my youngest ought to fit them perfectly. #funkykidfridayReplyDelete
Oh brilliant that your mum has kept some treasures for you are well :) Will be great to see how you will team them up with some new clothes in the future outsit posts :)Delete
It is so special that your daughter is getting to wear pieces that you wore when you were little! My mum has done the same thing and Isla has worn a couple bits of mine. It's so lovely! The shirt looks great with the shorts and she looks like she loves it! It's so nice how fashion comes round as well and things that were in fashion years ago, become on trend again :) Thank you so much for linking up and hope you had a great weekend petal xx #weekendministyleReplyDelete
PS. Sorry for the late comment - wifi issues whilst we were away this weekend!
That is really lovely - I am glad you have some of these treasures as well in your wardrobes! This shirt looks quite timeless anyway and I think you could wear it at any point in time and it would look OK. Sure beats some of those montrosities I had to wear in the good old -80s :DDelete
Thanks for hosting and hope you had a good time during your weekend!
That is an amazing share, I love how things have been passed onto you for your daughter to wear that you use to wear as a child. My parents didn't do that with me and I haven't done it with either of my children either. Wish I'd had now though! Thank you for sharing #TT_ThursdayReplyDelete
It was lovely - and I will be saving a few outfits for my daughter as well. You still have time to save something nice, doesn't need to be anything particular but maybe just one item from their favourites? Or something hand made? :)Delete
Aww! Your mum is ace!! As is the top! #TT_ThursdayReplyDelete
Ha ha :) Thank you :) She is, well done for saving this top for me! :)Delete
