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! Leigh + Laina originates from my two daughters’ names and they also happen to be the spark that inspired my entire brand. I started Leigh + Laina in November of 2018 and it really does seem like it was yesterday! Time flies when you're having fun! 

I am just so thankful for all the wonderful people who choose to shop small and support handmade! Special shout out to those who have continuously supported L+L over the last 5 years! I will forever be in debt to you! This has been such an amazing experience and I'm so glad I get to share it with you! 

All clothes are handmade by me in my smoke free home. We are, however, a dog and cat friendly home. No animals are directly in contact with any product.
