The Happily Eva After x Masala Baby Capsule Collection!

The Happily Eva After x Masala Baby resort capsule collection is layed out on a white background with an array of patterns in blue tones and a pop of color in the bright fuschia bathing suit

I truly cannot believe that the time has FINALLY come to introduce you to our Mommy & Me capsule collection for Masala Baby! I’m beyond thrilled to show you this, since I’ve been working on it for nearly a year– and I’m so happy with it that it has been absolute TORTURE to keep it a secret from you all! Masala Baby is a brand I love, and that I’ve dressed my kids in for years. I’ve even worn some Masala Baby women’s resort wear in the past! But since becoming a Mama I’ve found it increasingly challenging to find stylish and pretty Mommy & Me options to coordinate with my kids.  Marlowe and I love dressing alike, and we thought it would be fun to bring our love for prints and color to life with a resort collection that encapsulates both of our bold personalities.  We really hope you guys love it as much as we do! I’m talking about each piece below, so read away– and don’t forget that the collection launches January 29th at 7am EST, and has limited production– so make sure to set your alarm and snag your faves!

Eva Amurri Martino and Marlowe Martino wear matching masala baby tunics in a blue floral print from their limited capsule collection for the brand.

I first just wanted to write a bit about why I love Masala Baby as a brand, and chose it to partner with on my first collection– because I think what makes the brand special is something that the mamas out there will really appreciate.  As a brand, Masala Baby is incredibly supportive of women in the workplace, and of uplifting women across the globe.  Their team works to build partnerships with women-led organizations that provide sustainable work for their artisans– empowering many women AND their communities. I LOVE this positive message, and I feel it is manifested also in the brand’s application of fun patterns, lively color choices, and cuts of clothing that flatter girls and women while also remaining age-appropriate. To me, it’s the perfect mix of playful and classic, and I love that! Their cotton pajamas are also organic, and the fabric is so amazing that I’ve managed to pass down the PJ’s through both of my kids, and then on to cousins and friends, without them ever fading or ripping. I think when buying for our kids, of course it’s nice to have those throwaway clothes that are great for everyday wear and tear– but it’s also nice to have some special pieces that we truly LOVE, appreciate the meaning behind, and can pass down from child to child and keep in a box for future grandchildren. And it’s especially special when they’re pieces YOU CAN MATCH WITH!!! Gahhh I just love this so much.  Ok, here they are!

Women’s Fringe Tunic, Mini Floral

The entire Happily Eva After x Masala Baby color scheme was inspired by two things: 1. Marlowe’s Blue Eyes and 2. The ocean and sand, which are both Marlowe and my favorite things about being in warm weather.  I love the mini floral print of this tunic that is almost like a liberty print, but so soft and subtle that it is basically a neutral.  The fabric is light and airy, and I like to wear it as a top, paired with white denim, a bright colored set of shorts, or even tucked in to a full skirt for a totally different look.  If you bring this on a trip, you essentially have three looks in one! I just adore the luxurious fringe tassel on the bottom that give the tunic that beachy vibe.  While we were in Miami shooting this lookbook, I got so many questions about this tunic daily! It comes in Women’s sizes 2-18.

Girls Fringe Tunic, Mini Floral

The girls version of the Mommy tunic is identical, just cut smaller! Marlowe loves wearing it with her denim cutoffs to go grab lunch, or thrown over a bathing suit in between cannonballs and snorkel adventures. It’s even long enough for her to wear it as a little mini dress with bike shorts underneath! I love how we can wear the same tunic and either play up the fact that it’s identical– or wear it different ways to mix it up a bit.  This tunic will be available in sizes 2-12 years! (FYI, my friend’s baby who is 1 wore this with the sleeves rolled up and it was fine)

Women’s Halter One Piece, Golden Floral

Pink and gold: my colors, baby!! Since the whole capsule was going to be a sea of blue and sand tones, I wanted to do a bright swimsuit that would make a statement in the surf! Are you surprised I chose pink? LOL.  The flower at the heart chakra is to remind ourselves of our divine feminine natures.  I love that this swimsuit is both glam and functional– and to be honest, we had to work a lot on the fit! I wanted to make sure that the fit was flattering and flirty, but not too revealing. As somebody who has had nearly every breast size under the sun, the halter shape is supportive and can be adjusted whether your top is big or smaller! We also made sure the seat of the bathing suit is cut so that it lifts up the shape of the butt, and doesn’t hug in all the wrong places.  This suit is available in sizes 2-18.

Girls Crossback One Piece, Golden Floral

The coordinating suit for Marlowe in this collection features a larger flower and a cute gold crossback.  Bows on the sides adjust the side fit of the bathing suit.  Marlowe is like a little fishy, and can stay in the water for hours!  I wanted to make sure that the cut and style of the suit would keep her comfortable , and is something she could grow in to.  Marlowe has had swimsuits from Masala Baby in the past with this cut, and she and I both love it! I like that our swimsuits are similar, but not entirely identical.

Women’s Ruffle Sundress, Vintage Floral

You guys know that mixing prints is my favorite thing ever, and I just couldn’t get enough of this mini floral mixed with a more broad and whimsical vintage floral for a sundress! The waistband is elastic and drawstring for extra comfort, and the dress falls to just above or just at the knee, depending on height.  Floor length sundresses aren’t all that practical for me while running after the kiddos in warm weather, and I wanted to make sure I offered a dress that could be dressed down (with slides and sunnies) or up (with a blazer and heels) for different styles of event. It’s even bump and nursing friendly! This dress is offered in sizes 2-18.

Fantasia Dress, Vintage Floral

I love the idea of little girls looking like little girls, and not like mini adults! For Marlowe’s coordinating dress in this collection, I wanted a silhouette that was totally classic– but made more modern by the mixing of the floral prints.  I just love how this dress turned out, and Marlowe is so comfy in it! She is not the most princessy girl in the world– and this dress is the perfect medium between pretty and functional.  It is being offered in sizes 2-12 years

Long Sleeve Organic Pajamas, Love Buggies

These pajamas just might be my fave piece (but shhhh don’t tell my other clothes children! LOL) You know, as a Mom who loves coordinating my kids to me but ALSO coordinating my son and daughter with EACH OTHER– I had to make a unisex PJ! Marlowe is a tomboy at times, and loves the outdoors.  Her latest obsession: bugs! I thought it would be super cute to make a pajama with little beetles in an array of gorge aquatic colors.  Perfect for a brother or sister.  Since these Pajamas come in baby and kid sizes, all the siblings and cousins can match! Ps- can you spot the sweet heart detailing on them? Perfect for Valentine’s day and beyond. Pajamas being offered in sizes 6-12 months, 12-18 months, 18-24 months, and sizes 2-10 years

Well, that’s all she wrote folks!! I loved doing this capsule so much that I honestly could have done about ten more pieces.  But hopefully I get the chance to do another very soon! Don’t forget that the collection launches on the Masala Baby website on January 29th at 7am EST.  We didn’t make a ton of inventory, just to warn! I appreciate all your support so much, and I can’t wait to see those of you that snag pieces wearing them! Please let me know if you like the collection in the comments below!
