Irelyn's Blessing: The Small Details

Irelyn's blessing day was so beautiful. You can read about that here. Some of the things that made it so special were the little details about her dress and outfit so I wanted to give those things their own post.

Irelyn's dress was made by my mom out of the shirt Race wore on our wedding day. 


Back {with original buttons from Race's shirt}

 The original tag from Race's shirt sewn into the bottom of the dress. 

 Her itty bitty ring is from my sister-in-law Amber and I bought the bracelet to match it {I now wear the ring on a necklace with the girls' initials that my sister-in-law Nikki gave me}.  

Her shoes are ones that my mom bought when she was a teenager, saved for her daughters to wear, and then passed on to me. I love them! 

I love the tradition of baby blessings and I love having so many little details that carry family history with them.
