It’s a shell inspired summer! When I saw this smocked chocolate shell mosaic print dress, I knew it had my name all over it. I love that the chocolate color is unexpected for summer but feels like such a natural colorway for a shell print. I also really love that it feels like a departure of styles and silhouettes for the brand. Not a single person has been able to guess the brand when I’ve worn it! There’s something a bit fun about that. My boys also have the coordinating shorts (baby for Henry and toddler for Rowan), which I think are done in such a sweet summertime print for littles. (They also come in dress sizes for little girls.)
It was these shell prints and then a pop-up I visited on Nantucket for jewelry designer CCWW Designs that really put me over the edge for all things shell inspired. I’ve been swooning over a handful of CCWW Designs ever since, dreaming about adding a piece to my jewelry collection. Marisa Klass is another shell-inspired jewelry designer to have an eye on for anyone else who is having a shell inspired summer, like me. Below is a roundup of all things shells – fashion, accessories, and jewelry – so you can have a shell inspired summer too.
