I am thrilled and completely humbled to be sharing this blog post. I have been working the last few months on designing a bow collection with Wunderkin Co. I started this blog a couple years ago just wanting to share in motherhood with other moms and life’s adventures with the girls. I am incredibly grateful for the other creatives, it has brought into my life and granted me the privilege to create and be inspired. Hillary, the owner of Wunderkin, is so motivating and inspirational, that working together with her has sparked a different side of creativity for me. I am excited to see where I am led next and what doors may open!
This collection was inspired by my daughters, Adelyn & Emery. As a family, we love to travel and be outdoors, so when designing this collection I wanted it to be nature-inspired because that is where the girls are most in their element.
I can always guarantee that if we are anywhere with flowers, that Adelyn will be the first to stop and admire/smell the flowers. She likes to point out all the pink ones (her favorite color) and talk about differences in each one. This is why I named this beautiful, Liberty of London floral bow, the “Adelyn”. She is what represents a field of flowers most – dainty, cheerful, bold, and enchanting.
While Adelyn is admiring the flowers, I am usually chasing Emery trying to make sure she doesn’t pick them all… I love that my girls have such different personalities! This beautiful, dotted oversized school girl was named after her middle name, the “Jane”. I thought of her most when I saw this fabric because there isn’t a true pattern or rhythm to the dots on the bow. Emery dances to the beat of her own drum, and is such a silly, little free-spirt. She is playful, energetic, free-spirited, and joyous. Everything that this bow encompasses.
I chose a color palette that would reflect the beauty of the great outdoors while encompassing the hearts of our free little spirits. When envisioning this collection and the styled photoshoot, I knew that the blues of the “Adelyn” would stand out against the green scenery as well as the neutral colored “Jane” in the bright blue sky.
