"Inspired by the New Year, the birth of my daughter last year and The Bean Boot Project I've recently been thinking about my own upbringing. I did have a pretty decent childhood, but because of circumstances beyond my control missed out on certain, let's say, sartorial experiences, lessons and traditions that I'd wish I'd had. As I grew up I pretty much had to figure out my own style and tastes on my own without much guidance. I knew that once I had my own family I would hope to raise them to develop their own sense of style but also learn to appreciate the quality of well made things and the tradition of craftsmanship behind some of my favorite brands and products that I grew up with or had the pleasure to own.
On a visit to one of my favorite local vintage boutiques I noticed these little darlings and instantly fell in love. Not just because of the cuteness of these little bootie's, but because of why I love certain brands and goods. They are the brands that you start with, grow up in, grow old in and maybe even pass on to those that come after you.
I hope I'll get to have these types of experiences with my own."
