Autumn Vibes

Its officially fall in New England and time to enjoy the beautiful changing colors and crisp air.  Time to pull out our tights and scarves and head to the apple orchards in droves.  Once again this year, we collected double the amount of apples we'll actually consume.  About half were used in a failed apple crisp and we're still up to our knees in them.


This little apple picker kept herself cozy in the most delicious infinity scarf made by the ever talented Moriah at Seababy Clothing.  The color is so good, a deep plum that goes with everything she owns.  It doesn't hurt that she's a bit obsessed with anything purple at the moment.  This is by far the easiest scarf for her to wear.  It doesn't need to be tied or adjusted and feels like a big cozy hug.  Moriah lists new items from her fall line every Monday at 8 PM EST on Instagram.  Check her out!


And when I say she's into purple, I wasn't kidding.  We stop at every purple flower to say "hi".   


Although this tinycottons dress would have been very fitting for our pinecone hunt a couple weeks ago, it was perfect for a stroll among the apple trees.  The cotton is crisp like the weather and the cut gives her plenty of room to move freely.  It was on our must have list this fall and you can still get it over at KHM Collections.  


The Little Wears makes the world's cutest socks in a number of different animal prints.  These fox socks have been with us since spring and continue to be a favorite staple in the fall.  Even Mila has a pair and let me tell you they are perfect for a baby's wardrobe.  They might be the only baby socks that stay on and they make diaper changes a breeze in cooler weather.


At home in Boston

I'm the only one from our little family who wasn't born in Boston but I've grown to love it all the same.  The ever enchanting Public Garden is home to our treasured Make Way for Ducklings statues and Swan Boats.  If you're a local or just passing through, this park has universal appeal and is not to be missed.  Beyond the parks and history, our city has a strong creative energy that is truly embraced by the community.  As you can imagine, its always fun to discover new makers and brands that call Boston their home.  

During our recent trip to Nantucket, we discovered Smiling Button, a playful children's label born and bred in Boston.  I knew right away we'd be devout fans.  Adorable prints paired with classic styling make for timeless pieces.


Our little lady never stops and this day was no exception.  From the park to the library, her dancing feet were happy all day in our favorite summer shoes which were designed and manufactured in Pennsylvania by Zimmerman.  Read more about our admiration for this shoe manufacturer in my Endless Summer and Little Wanderer posts.  


Well hello there Mila!  This little peanut knew nothing but snow for the first few months of her life and is happy to be spending her summer in sleeveless rompers.  We occasionally run across wonderful handmade labels on Instagram and have fallen hard for Seababy.  Moriah makes precious items from vintage and high quality fabrics.  I just love that this little romper is fully lined and has an adjustable back tie that allows it to grow with the child.  


Elise's Peter Beaton hat (as mentioned in a previous post), is another born in Massachusetts label.  It now seems to be her go to hat for sunny adventures.
