New England is welcoming spring with a week-long forecast of rain while cherry blossoms are just about to give our street a burst of colour and delight.  Signs of new life haven’t gone unnoticed by these nature-loving sleuths who find joy in the tiniest of plants and creatures.  Our daily walks have us searching city landscapes for signs of nature’s annual awakening.  Refreshing our senses, we opt for beautiful flowing silhouettes from the Spanish brand, Popelin.

Shades of terracotta abound at this botanical centre from the pots lining our walkways to the twirling dresses of my garden nymphs. Popelin’s founder, Cristina Sánchez, evokes a simple elegance through her use of textile and design.  From the sourcing of materials to the manufacturing process, each garment is made entirely in Spain.  With every turn of the cloth, details speak for themselves.  Fabrics are thoughtfully chosen and feel just as wonderful on as they appear.  Drawing inspiration from the Mediterranian, Sánchez has created a collection of earthy tones that has us dreaming of ocean sunsets and sunkissed skin.

Elise and Mila continue their quest for flowering buds and noisy hatchlings while dancing away like garden fairies in hopes of showering their own little magic on all that grows.

The time is now for walks through the overgrowth of summer's end.  As one season passes, another is in full swing with burgeoning chipmunks and falling leaves.  Our presence along this journey goes unnoticed by the activity that surrounds.  

Elise and Mila layer up in pretty pastel knits from Blue Alma, a brand hailing from Brooklyn with roots in Germany.  Designer Annemarie Shoemaker's delightful collection of year-round knitwear is reason alone to venture outdoors on a brisk fall day.

Blue Alma's AW17 collection is a bouquet of soft pastels in blush, sage, and cream with limitless possibilities for styling the perfect fall wardrobe.  The A-line shaping of Elise's Emma tunic swings with ease and uncompromised comfort while Mila's Marlow vest has quickly become a staple piece as the days grow shorter.  Pointelle yoke collars and cable knit details add a touch of prim to these classic silhouettes.

Time stands still as we wander along the well-trodden paths near our home.  Winter looms in the not too distant future but for now, I can smell the fall air and hear the scurry of chipmunks and I'm happily content in the presence of our changing season.

So gracefully we find ourselves transitioning into the crisp days of Autumn.  Overgrown gardens live in harmony with a show of magical colour changing leaves.  We're cozy both inside and out with new fall knits in beautiful jewel tones.  Mother nature has spoken and we're happy to oblige.  We relish in these Autumnal vibes.

With little effort, these knits pair beautifully with pieces from past seasons.  The Animals Observatory (TAO) Lynx Skirt is wonderfully cozy in deep apple red.  With a perfect amount of punch, it is an understated statement piece.  Mila fancies Oeuf's Knit Romper in Rose for her rock gathering adventures.  A coordinating Oeuf necktieLittle Light Feet Crochet Tights, and Angulus T-Bar shoes finish her fall look.

We're embracing this season of change with creature comforts that keep us cozy on these chilly Autumn days.
