Spring into Summer
Yippee! School’s out, and our kids are tumbling into summer.
We know what they need after months of being cooped up. It’s time to pull out the sunscreen and water bottles. Pack up the ice chests and snacks. We’ll see you out there at the beach or pool, at playgrounds and parties. Hand and toy washing, the ban on shared food? We’re on it.
You know what? These kids need to play. They need to see their friends. They need to realize, after months of disruption, that friendships have only been strengthened by absence. They will discover what they have learned from months alone with family. They will probably be considerably more patient, because they have had to wait for these moments.
Our kids are longing for freedom, and that is just another word for summer.
Juicy fruit and breezy flowers inspire the feel of this season. Vivid lemon, sunflower gold, and poppy red pop alongside sophisticated black and navy patterns.
Sherbet pink grapefruit and apricot tones sweeten pleated skorts. Look for tailoring and structure--peplums, scallops, clever trims.
White daisies and delicate floral sprays inspire cool eyelet blouses, tiny tutus, and boho tunics.
Summery blue-and-white leans toward vintage, feminine touches.
One of our favorite options for girls on the move are breathable, flowing trousers in stripey, iced cappuccino tones.
The most important accessory this season is a signature sneaker.
The collection offers a beautiful range of looks for your summer girl.
Trending tones this summer are strong on gold (as in a Caterpillar tractor, paired with navy), pink grapefruit (worn with seersucker blue), and saturated orange tones teamed with muted teals, black or navy.
Shorts are statement pieces in unexpected colors and retro patterns, often tailored with signature plaquets. Khaki remains a hardy, summer neutral. Soft, natural fibres give dress shorts relaxed elegance.
The graphic tee remains a summer staple, as do polo shirts with playful, embroidered motifs. Crisp dress shirts go retro with denim elbow patches.
Summer outfits pivot on the shoe, either a novelty sneaker, or dress loafer.
