When it rains here in Boston, flocks of children descend upon our museums where they can expend some energy roaming exhibit halls. We followed suit and found ourselves at the Harvard Museum of Natural History where I was pleasantly surprised by its intimate space yet impressive collection of curiosities and critters from our natural world. From the display of colorful rocks to the menagerie of animals, I felt like we were on the set of Doctor Dolittle.
This is the golden age for jumpsuits. They are back in a big way for all ages and I can't think of a better silhouette for our walking toddler. Like any Soor Ploom piece, the cut of the Frankie Jumpsuit is perfection. Mila can move freely without restriction and the soft pre-washed linen can be worn year-round which is wonderful news for us long-suffering New Englanders. Minikin, purveyor of the world's most enchanting children's wear, has a wonderful selection of these Brooklyn made garments including a gorgeous Minikin exclusive, this Birdie Tunic in coral.
I have a tendency to scoop up anything in a blue green shade which compliments Elise's eyes so this Soor Ploom Peasant Tunic was a no brainer. Aside from the dreamy fabric and gorgeous gathering, I am absolutely loving that it can be worn first as a short dress, extending its longevity. Fresh out of the lavender infused packaging from Minikin, Elise tells me she "smells like roses."
Mila is dwarfed by the museum's kingdom of creatures. This is a wonderful place to loose yourself on a rainy day and a mesmerizing experience for curious youngsters.
