If you follow me on instagram or are friends with me on facebook you might have seen the 10 days of Penny Christmas photos that I posted of P wearing 10 different Christmas outfits. As soon as I found out I was pregnant last year, I started scouring goodwill, yard sales, and giant consignment sales for vintage baby outfits – even before I knew I was having a girl. In the process I found a number of adorable holiday outfits, not just for Christmas but for Valentines Day, Easter, Halloween, and Thanksgiving. They aren’t all vintage but many of them are, and I picked my favorite 10 for a little daily photoshoot from Dec. 16-25. It was difficult to pick a favorite photo from each shoot to share, so I decided 1) I’m going to share a couple of favorites from each day right here and 2) since I had so much fun with Christmas outfits, I’m going to do a little shoot every time P is wearing one of her vintage pieces for posterity. I’m going to call the series Penny Threads (#pennythreads) and every time I have a good collection of a few photos to share I’ll post them here (though you’ll see them from time to time on facebook or instagram). So here are her 10 Christmas outfits, with a few extra photos that I didn’t share at the time but am happy to do so now. Enjoy!

8. Vintage embroidered velour sleeper – again with the Peter Pan collar – I’m obsessed. Also – that’s a vintage blue velvet bonnet!
9. Vintage velour romper – my very favorite outfit of all! I saved this one for the Christmas Eve service.
