WHERE THE SKY TOUCHES THE SEA

SUMMER 2019 WAS INSPIRED BY THE COASTLINES OF EUROPE. TAKING A RELAXING SEASIDE VACATION TO SOMEWHERE REMOTE HAS ALWAYS BEEN ON MY SUMMER TO-DO LIST AND THIS YEAR IS NO EXCEPTION. WE BOOKED A TRIP THIS SUMMER TO THE AMALFI COAST NEAR SORENTO WHERE I PLAN TO BASK IN THE SUN WHILE READING A GOOD BOOK WHILE MY CHILDREN PLAY ON THE BEACH. THE REALITY THOUGH IS THAT I WILL MOST LIKELY HAVE TO CHASE A TODDLER AROUND MAKING SURE HE DOESN’T EAT SAND OR GET WASHED AWAY BY A WAVE. CAMPARI AND SODA WILL BE MY APERITIF OF CHOICE AND I’M REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO VISITING SOME ABANDONED ITALIAN RUINS IN SORENTO. I ALWAYS FIND THE BEST INSPIRATION IN THE MOST UN-ASSUMING LOCATIONS.

OUR CRETE PRINT, PRODUCED IN INDIA BY ARTISANS WHO SPECIALIZE IN BATIK, WAS ACTUALLY INSPIRED BY A SNOWFLAKE DESIGN MY SON SHAUN DID ONE DAY AFTER SCHOOL. FEATURED ABOVE IN THE ODELLS MIRO BARE BACK DRESS.

BARI IS OUR BLUE TILED GEO TEXTILE, WHICH REMINDS ME OF THE VIVID AND VIBRANT MEDITERRANEAN SEA SET AGAINST CHARMING TOWNS AND TOWERING CLIFFS. FEATURED ABOVE IN THE ODELLS RUFFLE TRIM DRESS.

THE PAROS STRIPE IS LIKE A VINTAGE COTTON UMBRELLA THAT YOU SEE ROWS AND ROWS OF FROM OUTSIDE YOUR QUAINT BEDROOM WINDOW. FEATURED ABOVE IN THE ODELLS PALOMA JUMPSUIT.
