With summer and travel coming up, you need clothes to elevate your style this season. Cartolina is a brand that is made for just that! Inspired through vintage fabrics, old photographs, and the feeling of nostalgia, these clothes are beautiful and timeless. Their clothes inspire traveling, adventures and making memories. It’s no wonder their motto is “the memory you wear”!
Translated to “postcard” in Italian, Cartolina clothes are meant to take you near and far. Founded in Nantucket by Margaret Anne Nolen, the Cartolina team aims to create clothes that make you feel special. They should serve as souvenirs to enhance your life experiences, no matter where life takes you. All of her pieces are hand-crafted with a whimsical elegance that can be worn on a vacation overseas to a small dinner with friends. They are created using sustainability methods, ethically hand-sewn and produced in small batches. I also love that the brand is women owned and operated. They are dedicated to investing in today’s women and the next generation. They make it a priority to give back to organizations that support women.
One of my favorite Cartolina dresses is this white embroidered maxi dress. This is the maxi dress you need this summer! I love the feminine details such as the custom floral embroidery and the scalloped hem. It is also lined with a lightweight cotton material and has adjustable straps. This dress is perfect for a walk along the beach or dinner al fresco. It is also a great dress for a bridal shower for the bride-to-be. I am in a size S. Pair the look with sandals for a casual day or wedges for something a little dressier. You can also add a denim jacket or cardigan on a chilly evening.
