As we settle nicely into the dog days of summer, a bit of adventure calls us to the coast where castles stand proud and little one’s make-believe within their ancient stone walls. Queen for a day is our motto and the girls pretend to rule over their kingdom of mermaids and garden fairies. Untamed summer play goes hand in hand with the stunningly simple, hand-tailored garments from Tortoise and the Hare.
The white linen Jane dress is a staple for summer. Its linen fabric is just as magical as our castle play and with a natural defence against dirt and stains, the Jane dress looks as beautiful as the day it arrived. Here along the shore, where queens still reign, this piece moves in the breeze with ethereal fluidity.
Mila follows the play of her older sister, uncovering rocks and peeping through fences. As our family jester, Mila’s energy and folly are unmatched. Yet, she remains cool as a cucumber in her linen and hemp blend tank and bloomers.
Make-believe kingdoms, real-life castles, and heavenly summer fabrics are what dreams are made of. A delightful brand, hailing from Lancaster County, Pensylvania, we are dazzled season after season with the heirloom quality of these artisan-produced pieces from Tortoise and the Hare.
