I have only held onto a few items that were not occassion or event specific due to the fact that by the time my kids have children of their own, should they do so, styles will probably be quite different from what they are now.
I would never want my kids to feel obligated to dress their children in fashions that were in style when they were little. I would not do that to them anymore than I would have wanted to wear clothing from the 40's when I was a kid in the 70's, but as a mom, I have had to hold onto a few things.
I was going through clothing this past week off and on, mostly getting out the winter items as it is about that time here in Kansas, and putting away summer items. In doing so I found a few gems that had never been put away with the other keepsake clothing.
These items are all my daughter's and I have no idea how they escaped the container which keeps all the clothing I have stored away for both of my kids.

Have you ever come across items of nostalgia like this? What do you save and what do you donate, or throw out? It can be so hard to part with some precious things!
For me, today, Happiness Is ... finding the kids old clothing and reminiscing.
