22 May Best SEASON Ever!
This weekend I got a glimpse into the future and, goodness gracious, it was adorable! The colors, the fabrications, and the girls were A+ perfection! Before I go gaga for back-to-school, I guess I should focus on all the beauty we got to share with you this Spring— Best Day Ever. A collection overflowing with everyday magic. What a beautiful whirlwind it’s been. Our first release blew in like a breath of fresh air…
Our first Best Day Ever release had the prettiest shades of blue and pink highlighted by dollops of lemon-y yellow. The feeling was “make believe” from the moment you laid your eyes on it! The patterns were bright, but soft enough for the sweet season ahead. When I look back on this release, I’ll always remember those tiny sprinkle covered donuts, the huge painterly roses on crisp Kelly green, and of course those blue-eyed bunnies! (Ah, I could go on and on about the trims, tassels, and teacups, too!)
And then Best Day Ever Release #2 sprouted from the garden just in time. This fresh cut release felt like it was plucked from the field. The colors were almost juicy! And the silhouettes were all over the place! We did a little bit of everything in this release, from playful knit tops in scattered florals to a delicious tiered dress in mixed up prints that just screamed SUMMERTIME. Oh ya, and those rainbows…how could I forget about those? Pure HAPPY, let me tell ya!
“Smooth like water” our Best Day Ever Release #3 explored new colors and new fabrications. Our poppy pinks became hazy corals, our kelly green became larkspur, and bright pool blue was replaced with cool eggshell blue. This dreamy combination of colors created the romantic, swan-lake look I was going for! I honestly don’t know what part of this magical release was my favorite — the lovely crochet details, the sweater knit bodices, or the watercolor knit fabric?! Good thing I didn’t have to choose!
And finally…the finale! Because at the end of the BEST DAY EVER, there’s gotta be fireworks! Pinatas, pennants, llamas, and beach buggies…what more could you ask for?! This release mixed some of my favorite whimsical characters with updated ‘classic’ prints like a larger scale gingham in vibrant raspberry rose! The styles were full on SUMMER — with fluttery peasant tops, twirly party skirts, and dresses for all the adventures of the season!
I can’t mention Release #4 without talking SWIM! Our first swim collection was a dream come true! Denise and I always, always wanted to do swim. Like…really, really bad. But it’s a scary endeavor! From fabrication to fit, I worked tirelessly along side Mano (our tech designer) to get these details right! Seeing the girls bring the swimsuits to life at the beach was truly something magical for me!
How do I write a recap of the season without mentioning the best part of all this creativity and cuteness? That’s you guys! Every single day I cross my heart and hope to create something special for you and your girls to enjoy. And every single day you guys make me feel like I do just that. What a gift you’ve given me—all of us! “Thank you” will never be enough, but I think I’m gonna keep on saying it until the cows come home!
Ahhh, it’s only May, but it feels like August is around the corner!! Don’t worry, I won’t start talking FALL for a little while…until then we’ve got some fun planned this summer, so stay tuned!! I swear there’s never a dull moment around here and that’s the way I like it!
