A Gilmore Girl at heart, this color pack reminded me of so many fun themes from one of my favorite shows of all time. First off, it takes it’s name from Rory’s special tree that she finds as her “study” spot. Second, I love the bond between mother and daughter. It wouldn’t surprise me if they raided each other’s closets, so I needed a piece that could be versatile. On an adult, or teen, this makes a trendy and chic cowlette (a stylish hybrid shawl/cowl) and on a mini-me, it makes an adorable capelet, perfect for all their fairytale adventures.

One size fits most. (Shown on an adult as a Cowlette and on a 5 year old as a caplet)
