You are a firm believer in complex simplicity.  Specifically, you are a sucker for a simple garment that has an undertone of complexity. “How is that even possible?” someone once asked you.  Ha! They only had to take a quick peek in your closet to see the proof. Your entire wardrobe reflects that as rows upon rows of solid colors (lots of black, lots of white, some gray) line up in formation to present your affinity for complex simplicity.  Whether it is a skirt cut at an unexpected angle, or a plain top with a strange neckline – you are completely drawn to it. You also love a good stripe here and there, because, after all who doesn’t love a stripe? 

What is good for the mama is good for the baby, so welcome the scene of complexly simple baby clothes! The Baby Striped Romper in White by Album di Famiglia.  Made in Italy, this romper is a perfect example of a minimal look with an interesting twist.  The classic romper is made chic by showcasing outside stitching all around and continuous thin black and white stripes that aren’t interrupted by leg or sleeve stitches.  This gives you a fabulous look, and great comfort for baby. Molto bello!

And speaking of comfort, you can’t go wrong with Album di Famiglia’s luxuriously soft cotton/polyethylene/elastane blend.  Softer than soft, chicer than chic – this simple rompers shows that agreeable contradictions can exist, and they can be completely gorgeous.
