Field Trip Lookbook

I really enjoyed putting together this collection! Every time I start designing a collection I look for inspiration from my own childhood. This time I was inspired by the textures and silhouettes of the styles I wore during my school days. I looked back even further to some of the styles my mother wore to school too. Of course, since Young Whimsy is a vintage inspired brand no collection could be complete without the influence of some vintage designs and patterns as well. (Little House on the Prairie was a very popular show in the 70/80's after all!) So that's how this collection was born! I've mixed some retro inspired designs with a touch of vintage to create this gorgeous, rich collection of pieces that are practical and wearable for today's children! I hope these sweet pieces will bring back a little nostalgia of simple childhood like they do for me!

This darling piece is called the Laura Dress. Named after Laura from Little House, which were my favorite books as a child and also my favorite TV show. The dainty print is a Young Whimsy exclusive floral that I designed and appropriately named Prairie Floral. The dress has an empire waist and little puff sleeves. Coconut shell buttons down the back. Sizes: 0/6 - 6T. Price Point: $60-64

Next we have our Jones Flares. I really wanted denim flares for this release and these turned out perfect!! The best part is they're perfect for both boys and girls! When my son Liam tried these on for me I couldn't get the thought of Fred Jones from Scooby Doo out of my head! Hence the name, the Jones Flares. These pants have a subtle flare at the bottom and a comfortable elastic waistband for ease of use. Made from 100% cotton denim. Sizes: 6/12 - 8/10. Price Point: $44-48

Liam is wearing our organic Waffle Knit Henley with his flares. I'm so excited to bring this new fabric to Young Whimsy! It's pillowy soft and so lovely! Such a wonderful layering piece! Sizes: 0/6 - 8/10. Price Point: $38-42

This darling skirt is our Cider Pleated Skirt. Made out of 100% cotton corduroy in a lovely golden/mustard color we've called Cider. It's the perfect fall piece that will transition beautifully into winter! Sizes: 12/24 - 8/10. Price Point $48-52

Sizes: 0/6 - 4T. Price Point: $54

Our Sarah Denim Jumper is probably my favorite piece from this release! The inspiration for this piece is a play on retro/vintage. I love how everything about this sweet jumper says "schoolgirl."
