September is one of our very favorite months! At the beginning of the month, you’re still savoring those final days of summer, but by the end, it’s fully transitioned to fall weather. There’s so much to love about fall between the changing leaves, pumpkin-flavored everything and cozier, layered style. Our September line captures the essence of fall and excitement that comes with the turn of the seasons. We chatted with Design Director, Meagan Miller to get the scoop on our latest collection!
MJC: Tell us a little about the September line!
Meagan Miller: “September introduces the beautiful, vibrant, rich colors of fall. There are a lot of knit pieces for easy, comfortable and cozy outfits. A lot of great layering options, along with fun, whimsical accessories for perfect outfitting.”
MJC: When you started to create September, what were some things that inspired the designs?
MM: “Our trip to the PNW was filled with a lot inspiration, focusing on our surrounding, sights, laughs and memories. We wanted the prints to really be the focus, keeping styles simpler and adding the perfect trims and details for that magical touch.”
MJC: Tell us about the color palette! Are there any prints you just LOVE?
MM: “While we were in Seattle, we were very inspired by Pike Place Market, which offered buckets filled with fresh fall flowers. The deep plumes, purples were just the perfect colors for September. The color palette was also inspired by our surroundings: the rich, golden sun that cascaded over the mountains, the deep blue ocean and the stunning trees along the road trip.”
MJC: What is your favorite girls style for September?
MM: “It’s so hard to pick just one. The Perfect Fantasy Dress is one of my most favorites of all. I love the hand-painted technique that Maggie used in creating this gorgeous floral. The golden ground color with layers of pink and purples is perfection. This print paired with the beautiful, knit double-layer skirt is pure magic. I also love all the things that the Sweet and Pink Dress has to offer — the best twirl, the sweet button details and the softest knit makes for the most perfect bows-to-toes outfits.”
MJC: Lastly, which women’s piece is your personal favorite?
MM: “I think all of the women’s tops are great this month, but I especially love the Perfect In Purple Top. The modal fabric is so soft, the styling is very flattering, and the simple dot adds a bit a whimsy for mom. I would pair this with any of our jeans, a little bootie and either a fun necklace or earring.”
