The concept seems simple, (bring baby to beach) but it is far from that as any parent knows. In Nantucket we were a short walk away from Steps Beach which much like the name implies, can only be accessed by walking down a steep set of stairs. Toys, tent, umbrella, chairs, baby, toddler, they all made the trek. And these smiling faces made it all worthwhile.
Shortly after Mila was born, I knew I wanted her to have a something special of her own that could be passed down, something timeless. I also knew that Minikin was sure to have what we were after. I find myself drawn to their aesthetic and always love shopping with them because they create a personal connection with their customers that is hard to find elsewhere. They carried a gorgeous Spring collection from Tocoto Vintage and we found Mila an adorable three piece set; bonnet, blouse and bloomers. The pieces were made from a featherweight cotton and are adorned with ruffles and lace trim, truly special.
Tiny Cottons, an imaginative brand based in Barcelona, produced this muslin swaddle which has become one of my essentials. I rarely leave the house without it and only wish I had purchased more. This print is from their spring/summer Camp-Pin-Pump collection and features a swim logo print that took me right back to my swim team days.
