Meet the Maker

Just a mama who found a passion for designing children’s clothing after having two little girls less than a year apart, crazy right? 

Hi, hi, hello! Dakota here, owner of Leigh + Laina! You can usually find me with two coffees in either hand, my face glued to my machine, whilst conversing with my kids all at the same time. Don’t forget about dinner usually burning in the oven, too.

I sparked a love for comfy, stylish, and one of a kind clothing for my littles just after my youngest was born and boy has it been such a blessing. 

Leigh + Laina originates from my two daughters’ names. Our goal is to create a comfy yet stylish clothing line, clothes are handmade by me in my smoke free/dog, kitty friendly home in Destin, Florida.
