This guest post comes to us from Stephanie Sanchez. As she graciously shares what a morning with her daughter, Story, is like with us, we are reminded that every single minute spent with our babiekins is special and powerful.
Our mornings together are never short of amazing. On this morning, we cozied up at a local café for breakfast. Sitting in a window watching the wind blow a newspaper down the street, I watched her in awe. She’s growing right before my eyes. Buttoning her sweater and cutting her waffle. She sang and danced for the other patrons without a care in the world. In big moments and in small she shines. Radiating joy and an abundance of energy ready to take on anything.
Flora and Henri is the ultimate in classic, timeless children’s wear. From their knits to their beautiful outerwear, Lucas has been sporting Flora and Henri since he was in infant – his first piece a beautiful silver winter jacket. One of my favorite Fall/Winter outfits, this combo is the perfect amount of classic and play. Also, they hit the nail right on the fashion head with their Madrid pants (Pantone’s color of the year – Marsala!). See the entire collection here for both boys and girls.
Pantone, the global authority on color, introduced the Color of the Year 2015 as Marsala (Pantone 18-1438). Although Marsala is somewhat of a controversial color choice for some — liking a color is a personal and subjective experience — I really like Marsala because it is equally as stylish on a girl or boy. Pantone describes the color as “a naturally robust and earthy wine red, Marsala enriches our minds, bodies and souls.” My opinion is that Marsala is a grounding, warm red-brown color that looks good on everything from apparel, to accessories, to shoes, and even for home decor. It is a seasonless color that can be worn as a grounded statement color on its own in the fall and winter, and as a strong accent to other lighter and brighter colors in the spring and summer. I think both me and my son need something Marsala in our wardrobes for 2015, so we can radiate with confidence — obviously.
