This year, we have chosen a few of our favorite female-founded brands to spotlight for the holidays. We hope you will consider supporting these small, mom-owned businesses as you do your shopping. First up? Walker&Wade, a super chic brand known for bright, cheerful pieces that go “beach to table”. Founder Laurette Kittle’s styles are perfect for travel but so stylish you can (and will want to) wear them every day. They’re known for their Balinese print dresses and tunics but also have incredibly high quality blouses and other year round pieces. We spoke to Laurette for her holiday picks, family plans and more. Check out our picks for Walker & Wade’s Holiday Gift Guide.

Happy holidays! How will you be celebrating this holiday season?
With family, close friends, and lots of wine!
Sounds like a perfect plan…What is new for Walker&Wade this holiday season?
We just launched out first Fall/Winter mini capsule collection and we are so excited about it! We are also releasing a holiday gift guide featuring our curated gift boxes as well as our new weatherproof totes and other small unique treasures hand made in Bali. This year we started a new direct to consumer division—we brought on a team of incredible women stylists who are selling our collection throughout the country. We are looking forward to growing this division for the spring as well as looking forward to our new chiffon floral collection—we have been working on these fabrics for over 2 years!
Congratulations! What are your top picks for holiday gifts?
