Sea the Light

Bitty Bambu's nautical-inspired spring collection

Did you catch the season premiere of The Rachel Zoe Project this week? It was totally ba-na-nas - especially little Sky Sky's adorable outfits (WE DIE for those mini fedoras).

To be fair, his mom has access to the world's hottest designers, while you...

Well, hey! You have us. So get your little one ready, because we're about to hook her - and you - up with Bitty Bambu's spring 2013 collection "Of Land and Sea."

  Bitty Bambu's Anchor T-shirt and Twirly Circle skirt
Anchor T-shirt, $19, and Twirly Circle Skirt in Herringbone, $33.

You already love the Kula, Maui-based line for its fun, modern keiki designs and retro-cool burp cloth sets. This week, designer Taryn Gillespie debuted a refreshing spring collection: a girlish, yet contemporary spin on the classic nautical theme.

Sail through her Etsy shop and you'll find anchors, mermaids and sea creatures layered with on-trend prints in ocean-inspired blues and purples. Be on the lookout for stylish pieces like the Seaside dress, a mix of tonal lavender chevron and black and white Moroccan prints with a baby blue starfish applique, or a sleek navy herringbone anchor T-shirt with matching circle skirt (perfect for twirling).

To celebrate the collection's arrival, Gillespie offered a 15 percent discount that, for most people, expires today. But, thanks to your A-list connection, you'll coast through another week, fishing out hot spring styles for a song.

Feel free to sing our praises anytime.

Take 15 percent off everything in Bitty Bambu's Etsy's shop with the code LEICHIC15 through Friday, March 15, and check Bitty Bambu's Facebook page for updates.
