We are thrilled to announce the launch of our new spring 2016 girl's collection! Our website is chock full of new favorites like this Chambray Aimee Frock!

For Spring 16, we give a nod towards the late 60's and early 70's, inspired by Americana pop colors intertwined with soft European hues.  Spring checks and nautical stripes in cheerful colors mix and match perfectly allowing you to pair the line easy peasy! Don’t be afraid to layer Green with Anjou Pear or top Pink with a touch of Coral. Take classic Navy and pair it with a minty hue even! 

We've found the perfect accessories and cute things to match the line! Gifts, clips and totes abound! Be sure to visit our Cute Things category!

Plant a butterfly garden!

With Earth day coming up on April 22, we thought we'd suggest a fun activity for the kiddos to do. Let's plant a butterfly garden! Did you know that butterflies and moths are indicators of a healthy environment and healthy ecosystems? They have been widely used by ecologists as model organisms to study the impact of habitat loss and fragmentation, and climate change. They are also the third most prolific pollinator behind bees/wasps and flies! 

Did you know that if you create a wildlife-friendly garden you can have it certified? Learn all about it here

Show all your friends that by creating a sanctuary for creatures big and small you are contributing to a healthy environment and a happy planet!

The Best Spring Duos for photo sessions!

We know that there will be lots of posing for pics this spring holiday, so we wanted make it very easy to dress the kiddos in the cutest coordinating outfits. Trust us, your photographer will love you for it! We put together some outfits that aren't too matchy-matchy but just the right amount of fresh, classic, and cute- like them!

First off we've paired the Pascale Sweater Dress with our Chevron Jacqueline Cardigan for her and the Cotton Bailey Top with the Birdseye Pattern Sweater Vest for him. The vest and the dress are a perfect pair!

Our second dynamic duo is perfect for the outdoors! We've paired the Gingham Pia Day Dress  with the Pointelle Clara Cardigan for her and the Cotton Bailey Top and Gingham Check Bailey Shortall for him. 

We've included a neutral palette for those that prefer a softer, fresh and simple style. For big sis, the Eyelet Lacey Top and the Gingham Spring Skirt is a lovely match to the Cotton Alyssa Top and the Gingham Bebe Bloomers

This cheery couple can only mean that they light up a room! Our vintage inspired Polo Tennis Topper with the Gingham Spring Skirt is sweet pair to the Boys Cable Crewneck and the Gingham Gibson Boys Shirt. We love the pop of color on these two outfits! 

Does your family coordinate outfits for photos sessions? We would love to see how you pair Olive Juice this spring! #olivejuice and tags us @loveolivejuice on instagram to show us your looks!

Her thoughtful writing style will have you dreaming of a simpler life surrounded with just the right amount of ups and downs. We couldn't wait to collaborate with her and her adorable daughter Bee. 

This post was about spending the afternoon writing to pen pal friends, something that many of us find little time to do. It's a good reminder to slow down and take note that something such as a letter can make someone's day just a little better. 

Doesn't little Bee look so sweet in her Tennis Topper? She also wore the lovely Ludlow Cardigan in Sea Green.

Heart Stencil DIY

We love the Color Block Essential tee and wanted to show you how to customize it with a stencil! 

We thought a heart stencil would be perfect to start with as it's really simple to cut one out. The list of DIY ingredients are as follows...

1. Essential tee in the color of your choice. We used the elephant/ cream color block one!

2. Foam pouncers- we love these.

3. Fabric Paint- try we found that these work great!

4. Freezer paper - you can get this at the grocery store. 

5. Your trusty iron.

The first step is to iron on the freezer paper wax down so that it adheres to the fabric. Once you feel that the paper is stuck on well, use your foam pouncers to gently dab the paint all over the inside of the stencil. You'll want to place a piece of cardboard inside the t-shirt so that the paint does not go through. Once the paint is dry, you can remove the freezer paper. Place a bit of fabric to cover the image and iron over it to set the paint. That's it! 

A simple DIY that you and a friend can do in an afternoon!
