Spring Crocus Trio

by Abbey Swanson

Pushing bravely up through the cold ground and sometimes even the snow, the spring crocus is an early herald of the summer warmth and beauty on its way. A symbol of hope and new beginnings, the crocus inspires the colors and loveliness of this infant set. This trio of infant garments are imbued with the colors of a brave crocus bud on a spring morning. Clothe your little one in an itch-free, soft, and adorable set of shrug, leg warmers, and hat that are perfect for late winter or early spring excursions.
