When choosing clothes for my little girls, I try to buy exclusively from shops that make the effort to produce their clothing in the United States. It may mean spending a little more, but it's worth it. Kids clothes that look good and also make you feel good. The perfect excuse to buy your little girl something nice.
When we found out that Jessica Dickinson of Blake Acres is traveling across the pond with her daughter this summer, we couldn't pass up an opportunity to send them to the famed Liberty of London shop to pick out some beautiful fabric for a collaboration.
The recent launch of our 70s-inspired florals and vintage yellow Swiss dot bows left me with retro everything on the brain, so naturally, my mind went to the sort of classic adventures I could recreate for my littles. I figured I'd round up a few of my favorite retro-inspired summer activities for kids—because couldn't we all use a little inspiration to get outside? The answer is yes. Bring on the vintage.

Introducing the Jessica Garvin X Free Babes Handmade collection. The collection has a posy chambray, starfruit yellow, a flower child floral, and watermelon linen—it's bright, bold, and ready for adventures in the summer sunshine. Jessica wanted the collection to be bright and colorful, full of texture, with some pretty pinks and lavenders. Her vision for this was so spot on—we are both so thrilled with how the collection came together. Hope you enjoy the darling photos of Jessica's littles.

I am so excited to share our latest collection with you, just in time for summer adventures. As some of you may know, I’m from Denver, so naturally the mountains have a huge influence on my style. For this collection in particular, I imagined my girls on hikes through evergreen forests, running through fields, and climbing trees. All of the colors and patterns are inspired by nature—from multi-colored posy flowers to ochre fields to the deep blues and greens of the ocean.
