The beach is our happy place.
Take a cranky day filled with tantrums and tears that nothing but nothing won't fix. Whisk that day away to the beach (and fast!), get those toddler toes in the sand, feel and hear the rhythm of the pounding waves, the seagulls overhead. It fixes all.
Summer or Winter, it doesn't matter. We'll be there. On the sand in our bathing suits or walking the water's edge with scarves wrapped tightly around our noses. My favorite time is Autumn (followed closely by spring). It's cooled just enough so the sun feels lovely and not baking, and the beach-goers have all gone home or to school or work or wherever they go. Likely we'll have the beach to ourselves. So we go. We build sand castles and enjoy the quiet solace of an Autumn beach. We take our meals with a bit of sand and the last bits of Vitamin D. Collect seashells, stick our toes in the water, and as Autumn creeps on, we pull on our woollies for just a few more days at the beach.
The Autumn beach is our happy place.
I've thoroughly enjoyed designing this collection inspired by my favorite place. The textures, colors and stitch patterns all remind me of those walks down the shore - and the pieces are exactly the ones you'll need while doing just that.
I can't wait to share it with you next week.
