The colourful and crisp New England fall is upon us and there is no better time to soak up the history and beginnings of our commonwealth state of Massachusetts. In just over a month, Americans will be dressing turkeys and gathering with loved ones in the spirit of Thanksgiving, a holiday with its roots right here in Plymouth. This town upon the Cape Cod Bay is home to Plimoth Plantation an authentic and lively recreation of an early English settlement which has been enjoyed by visitors for more than half a century.
In much the same vein, we chose to wear the heirloom children’s brand, Devon’s Drawer who is dedicated to lasting quality and locally sourced materials and labour. From the materials to the fabrication, each piece exudes a simple elegance that will span generations.
Quite possibly we have found the perfect dress to take us through the cooler days ahead. With a longer sleeve and a hemline just skimming the knees, the Emily Dress will stave off a winter chill with an ease of wear factor that is paramount for active toddlers. A velvet trim along the neckline is the perfect finishing detail for this precious dress. Available in a gorgeous selection of fall colours and the most sumptuous corduroy or organic hemp/cotton, have your pick!
For the little girls in our life, the Franklin Dress, designed by Devon’s Drawer is equally as charming and its relaxed fit is perfect for accompanying her on countless childhood adventures. We are head over heels for this grey organic cotton/hemp fabric. Its flecks of blue and red throughout add a bit of texture and exude a modern yet classic approach to fall dressing.
There is no reason girls should have all the fun with the magical collection from Devon’s Drawer. Boy moms rejoice, for we’ve found the most stunning pieces for your little man’s wardrobe. Pair the cozy Hazel Vest and fleece Russell Turtleneck with the handsome Devon Pant and there you have a sharp looking lad ready to romp in the autumn leaves.
