About La Paloma:
The magic of childhood is so often found in the unstructured, unplanned moments. It’s eating banana pancakes on a Sunday morning at your favorite café. It’s that impromptu post-bath dance party with your sister. It’s searching for fireflies with your best mates as the sky fades to black. It’s the feeling of falling into your bed at the end of a long day of play, curious and excited as to what the next day will bring. La Paloma is for all of these moments.
About the founder:
Jen Pinkston began her career in fashion at 22, fresh out of college. After short stints working backstage at fashion week and as a buyer, Jen landed in styling at The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Jen’s styling career spanned a decade and included jobs in television, red carpet, editorial and advertising on both coasts before she eventually decided to transition full-time to digital content creation. After more than a decade in Los Angeles, Jen and her husband Aaron moved back to her hometown of Austin, Texas in 2016 where they now reside with their two young daughters, Parker and Ever.
“I remember feeling frustrated one night. I was struggling to pull a nightgown over my youngest’s head and just felt like there should be better choices for kid’s loungewear and sleepwear, something in between the very traditional pieces and the overly juvenile pieces that already existed. Neither of those options seemed to represent who they were or this incredible phase of life. A month later I was on my way to New York to start the process of creating La Paloma.”
