Autumn came early this year, and for those of us that love the change of season this is good news. While Summer days are loved, the opportunity to swathe in layers is once again welcomed. That feeling of being covered, and protected, sheltered from the elements, layered in warmth…quite simply, that moment of feeling cozy.
We realised it was almost time to wave goodbye to Summer at the shore of Lake Huron in Ontario last week. A cool crispness in the air was inviting us to get toasty by morning beach fires. The ambience of harvest was setting in, apples to be picked, kindling to be collected, seasoned firewood to be split. The last of summer flowers were gathered with gusto, and with a sigh of gratitude we felt the abundance this time of year brings. The sweet smell of ripe fruit and nectar would soon to be replaced with that tingle of spice, cider and preserves and little ones start to talk about Christmas.
Throughout the Autumn Winter season the girls will be wearing a selection fine wool knits from Caramel baby & Child. Made from premium soft 100% wool, these are heirloom quality items to cherish. I adore how the knits looked on the children in the woods, and by the shore, the earthy colours echo the season they were perfectly designed for. Caramel Baby & Child transcends fashion fads, guaranteeing timeless elegance and style. If there is one special dress you purchase this season, the Almond dress is on my list. It is a versatile cold weather dress that can be worn for both celebrations and events or for less formal outings. Caramel Baby & Child have stores in London, New York and Tokyo. International shipping is available through their online boutique. Caramel Baby & Child is now stocked at Ladida, for those of you in the USA preferring to avoid shipping cost from the UK.
