Get ready to say hello to October! September is one of our favorite months of the year, which can make it hard to say goodbye. However, our October release is so exciting that we’re happily leaping to the next month! We sat down with Design Director, Meagan Miller, to chat all things October from where she drew inspiration to her favorite styles.
MJC: What inspired you for the October release?
Meagan Miller: “I really love texture and all things cozy. October is always the perfect month to introduce warm sweaters and textured knits like waffle and ribs. We often think about the things we are doing with our friends and family during the fall months, like apple picking, going to pumpkin patches and maybe having a bonfire on a cool night — but this October we were inspired by what takes place inside the home. What do you do after the apple farm? Bake a pie. Can some jelly. We just loved all the memories we shared amongst the team from our personal childhoods during this time. It was very inspiring.”
MJC: Tell us a little about the color palette!
MM: “I personally love this color palette so much. It’s happy and girly, with touches of earth tones that offer a bit of softness and richness at the same time. I just adore how the pink and turquoise pair with the rusty brown and ochre. It certainly reminds me of the leaves changing as we transition from summer to fall and the beauty within that.”
MJC: So pretty! Can you tell us about any extra special details incorporated into the patterns?
MM: “Yes! The Sweetie Pie Dress and Best Recipe Dress have an actual pie recipe on the skirt. Baking a pie as a child with my mom was something I loved doing. To this day, we still share that bonding moment the night before Thanksgiving every year.”
MJC: That’s so sweet — we love that! How is this October different from previous releases?
MM: “You will see an introduction of a lot of textured fabrics like waffle knits, chiffon swiss dots and crinkle gauzes. There are also a lot of cozy pieces compared to prior months as we transition into winter.”
MJC: Which girls’ style is your favorite from this release?
MM: “The Forever and Ever Dress — I can not wait to see little girls running and twirling in this one. It is super soft, has a slight texture and an incredibly full skirt for that perfect twirl moment. This dress is where pink meets the rusty brown hue in the most magical way. It doesn’t get any better!”
MJC: Lastly, which women’s style are you most excited to wear?
MM: “I love the Botanical Beauty Top for its beautiful print and color. There are so many stylish ways to wear it — with jeans or a great legging, depending on your occasion!”
