Welcome To San Diego lookbook- SS21 Drop 1

Welcome To San Diego lookbook- SS21 Drop 1

Aimee and I are so excited to bring our first Young Whimsy collection to you! Our Spring '21 theme is Welcome To San Diego.

Our gorgeous city is filled with miles of beaches and trails and has a climate that lets all kinds of beautiful plants flourish. While we have wonderful weather all year long, something special happens after the winter rains and our plants go from "water me" to "look how pretty I can be!"

Our color palette is inspired by our beautiful California native plants. I started gardening for the first time two years ago when my family moved into our first house, and I've filled my yard with anything local-ish. We'll share the whole palette over the course of the season, but for now, here's Sage.

Sage sits with Sand, Cream, Chambray and Denim Dot to form a solid base for all the fun that's coming in future drops. 

We have tweaked sizing for this season to cover as many kids as we can. You'll see some pieces in 0-3 months up to size 12/13. We have a new sizing chart so you can make sure you're purchasing the best fit for your little. As always, we have built adjustability into pieces and they are generally looser fit so you can keep them in rotation for longer. See our new "Meet Our Models" page to see how your child might fit into our updated sizing.

Let's get into the goodies!

Introducing the Violet Sleeveless Shift Top in 100% cotton Denim Dot. This cute & versatile piece has a slight cap sleeve and a single button at the back neck. We are also bringing back everyone's favorite Roll-Up Pant in Chambray cotton/linen blend. This pant features front pockets, full elastic waist with functional drawcord, and reinforced buttonhole tape at inside knee so your child can wear them as shorts.

Violet Sleeveless Shift Top: sizes 12-18m through 8/9. $40/$42
Roll-Up Pant: 6-12m through 8/9. $50/$52

Our Elsie Suspender Skirt got a sweet ruffle strap for this season. It features deep side pockets for all kind of treasures, elastic back waist and three buttonholes at the strap end for maximum adjustability.

Elsie Ruffle Suspender Skirt: 6-12m through 8/9. $58/$60

Fan favorite Cottontail Blouse is in Drop 1 in Cream. This is the same beautiful triple gauze shown in Kale and Shell for SS20. This piece has two front buttons, a gathered skirt and short sleeve. It looks great on its own or underneath the Elsie Ruffle Suspender Skirt.

Cottontail Blouse: in-stock 3-6m through 8/9, made to order 0-3m, 10/11 and 12/13. $54/$56

Our Short Sleeve Henley is in Cream as well, and looks great with the Chambray Roll-Up Pants. These two tops are a great way for siblings to match just enough!

Short Sleeve Henley: in-stock 3-6m through 8/9, made to order 0-3m, 10/11 and 12/13.  $44/$46. 

Rounding off the Cream tops is our Sleeveless Henley. This is my favorite under our shortalls- coming soon!

Sleeveless Henley:  in-stock 3-6m through 8/9, made to order 0-3m, 10/11 and 12/13. $40/$42.

Introducing the Cora Beachcomber Cropped Pant in Sand and Sage. This is my dream pant- not too tight in the leg, not too long, looks great with sandals for spring and wears into fall with boots. It is made of a beautifully textured and soft linen/rayon blend that we prewashed and machine dried so you won't have any shrinkage surprises. This pant has two back patch pockets and a paperbag elastic waist.

Cora Beachcomber Cropped Pant: 12-18m through 8/9. $44/$46

We have two fun Adventure Knapsack colors this drop-  Ocean and Fog. These knapsacks are perfect for a day at the beach.

Adventure Knapsack in Canvas: one size, $60.

Even more fun is coming soon, so make sure to check back in as the weather warms up.
