Back to Basics…

Plaids, paisley, hounds tooth, polka dots and stripes.  Turquoise, mauve, citron, lavender and tangerine.  So many color combinations and patterns, so little time and yet…there are moments when you just want to relax, take a deep breath and enjoy the simple beauty that this world has to offer.  A soft gentle cloud ballet dancing above your head, a row of fluffy dandelions bending downward in the breeze, sleeping polar bear cubs cuddling together, vanilla ice cream smudged on a tiny face filled with laughter and glee.  Is it any coincidence that clouds, vanilla ice cream, polar bears and fuzzy dandelions are all white?  We think not. There’s something to be said for the color white.

Enter Album di Famiglia’s white baby tie back top.  A terrific example of what we like to call complex simplicity (it’s true!).  This elegant shirt for your baby boy takes you back to basics while still keeping its classic good looks intact.  And with spring finally here, this lightweight piece, with its notch-neck tie in the back and easy silhouette, is the perfect compliment to your baby’s wardrobe.  Made with soft cotton poplin, it effortlessly takes them through all of spring and well into summer.

So go ahead and keep shopping for zig-zags and floral patterns, they have their place and time.  Just remember, while patterns are fine and dandy sometimes you just want to get back to basics.  All white?  All right!
