I think one of the most beautiful things about this time of year, when autumn fades into winter, is the return to simple things for happiness. Without an abundance of sunshine and flowers and all the obvious pleasures that come with warmth, we have to turn to ourselves. We have to make our own light. And this light always comes from the little things: a cup of tea, a hug, a moment of sunshine flooding in low from the window, layering up to go and play outside just so you can come back in and get warm again, a fire, a candle, a book under a blanket. I love winter and the introspection that comes along with it. It balances me, it makes me whole. I remember nothing can bloom all year, and I'm glad to return to my roots. The prints and colors in this drop are dedicated to the little things that are really the big things.
