Let’s Go Everywhere!

Hi everyone! I can’t believe May is almost here. While last month’s release was all about the family vacation – for this release of Wish You Were Here, we are taking you on a summer road trip. This collection was really inspired by the Design Team’s collective girlhood memories — packing the up car, being in the backseat with our siblings, stopping all along the way – getting there really was so much of the fun!

This new assortment is all about easy summer styles. You are going to see lots of super-soft knits, and even the wovens have this nice soft wash. We really wanted to give everyone those effortless pieces they could just live in this summer.

We also tried to capture the free-spirited fun of summer with our new prints. There are some red, white, and blue patterns for those festive summer celebrations like Memorial Day. There’s also this really cute camera print that just screams summer. Our in-house artist, Maggie, made it even more special by using our own prints in each little camera – so sweet!

But my favorite new print has to be this little stamp print. It was designed to look like an old vintage suitcase – the ones with all the stickers of everywhere you’ve been. Ours is super special because each little stamp is a past MJC season logo. If you’ve been with the brand for any amount of time, or you’re just starting out, this is one you have to have.

In girls and baby, we have lots of sweet sister sets – dresses, tops, shorties (even a pair for baby – our first ever!) to make for easy picks and pairings all summer long.

For tween, you are going to see more athletic-inspired styles. These pieces were inspired so much by my own two girls as they are in that tween group right now, and in the summer, they have so many activities and camps – they live in easy knits and shorts. And of course, we made ours really special with some custom prints and extra-cool details.

Mom is getting lots of new options, too. It’s a mix of heritage styles we know she loves and some new introductions that she can dress up or dress down. I love the palette we’re giving her. There’s classic navy, a touch of red, a light blue gingham, and then there’s this sunny ochre that looks good on everyone and works with everything.

I can’t wait for you to see it – it all arrives May 1!

Hello, I was reading your amazing post. I have wrote a message in to Matilda Jane so I can get information on hosting a trunk show and becoming a trunk keeper. I have yet to hear back. How long does it topically take to hear back? I really think this would be an amazing career choice and journey for myself. Please please if there is anything you can do to help me. Please be in touch. I appreciate your time.

I bought my daughter a lap dress from Matilda Jane off ebay when she was 2 years old. Our love for you has only grown over the past 6 years. I am so excited for the stamp print! It will be such a memorable piece, that like that second-hand lap dress, belongs in her memory chest. Love!

I am excited to see all these prints on the new line. I am especially loving the vintage postal print!

Perfect Match!

Growing up as a kiddo, my siblings and I had the adventures of a lifetime every summer with our grandparents, or Pagra and Granny, as we called them. My parents weren’t the most outdoorsy type, but boy were our grandparents! A week or two every summer was spent with them gardening, chasing chickens, exploring the water and woods, and of course, enjoying each other’s company.

Each year when they would come to pick us up for the long drive to Kentucky, they would always have the most perfect bag of goodies, games, and treats waiting in the car for each of us to keep us busy. They were each specialized for our personality, and car games were always a staple.

So, as we were coming up with this month’s pretty printable, I couldn’t help but think of the bag of goodness that my grandparents thoughtfully picked out for us to help prevent that one question we all want to know on a road trip … are we there yet?!

So, we created this little MJ memory game – it’s just the thing for your traveling fashionista!

Who doesn’t love a little something to keep the kiddos busy while working their brain power at the same time!? Now, not only can you use this MJ game to test their memory, but it is also a great way to mix and match the current collection for those favorite everyday looks. Hello future Trunk Keepers or fashion stylists! 😉

Printing your April pretty printable is simple and easy! Simply click on the photo above to download your document. You can even print yours on a patterned card stock so the opposite side is just a sweet as the MJ piece you see above. Once you have printed your printable, cut along the lines, and you are good to go.

This sweet little game is great on your own or played with a bestie. So, when it’s time to pack your sweet ones travel bag for the next adventure, don’t forget to bring along your newest pretty little printable for a little pattern, style, and fun!

Ciao for now,
