States Bound

So I'm off to Boston today, Cambridge to be exact, to celebrate little k graduating from college!  Man the time goes by so quickly... I feel like I just graduated from college, but seeing as how there's nearly a five year age difference between us, this is not the case. I'm so excited to see my her and my parents again, just wish there was an easier way to get over there instead of having to take an eight hour flight but oh well. See you all in a week!!!

Makes Me Happy

5.18.2012


This is what I was up doing until the wee hours yesterday. And it is also the way I will be spending my Friday evening... exciting I know! But honestly, I really do love it and the hours just seem to fly by. Designing, being creative, and drawing... things that make me happy! Now add say Florence + the Machine and it's my kind night!

Anchors Away, S/S 2012

5.16.2012

see my online portfolio here

With summer time just around the corner, it's hard not to find myself daydreaming of warmer climates and sand filled beaches.  With the weather in London not cooperating at all, daydreaming may be the only thing to hold on to this summer! And so in the midst of all my daydreaming, I envisioned Anchors Away. When designing this collection, I imagined little girls playing by the sea side, toes dug deep in the sand. I wanted to create a collection that had a mix of vintage inspired silhouettes combined with modern ones, focusing on comfort as well as style. The color palette was inspired by the vintage suitcases on my mood board. Something about them just seemed perfect, soothing, and just trendy enough for my girls. I decided to focus on prints instead of graphics this time, feeling that it allows for the collection to look timeless. The prints are all paired with cream and I kept the number of colors to a minimum. Details like gathers, bows, and defined collars can be be expected. Don't you just feel like escaping the rain and taking a day trip to the sea side with a little one now? Anchors Away girls, it's time for fun!

Rain Rain

5.14.2012


With all the rain that London has been getting, it's been hard not to get "inspired" by it. I mean if you can't beat it, join it right? And so instead of waiting for the rain to go away, let's embrace it in style. With so many choices, it was hard to narrow it down to just five coats. But these by far are my favorites! Whether your little one is looking for bright, vintage inspired, modern, sleek, hooded, long, or short, options are a plenty! Can you guess which one is my absolute favorite? I'll give you a hint... it's a bright one!

Caramel Baby & Child, S/S 2012

5.08.2012

images from here

Florals, and checks, and stripes oh my! Caramel Baby & Child has an array of these in their Spring/Summer 2012 collection and I am swooning over each and every piece! The collection is full of sophisticated yet functional items that any kid can feel at ease in while looking cool. Bright colors pop when grounded by peachy and neutral tones. The overall feel is one of vintage inspired details on modern day silhouettes, a match made in heaven! And lets not forget the layering of chunky knits over well structured wovens for those chilly Spring evenings. Overall I would say this is a very refreshing collection, one I wish I could fit into!
