New-To-Me Brand Discoveries

Today's post is relatively simple, yet something I'm surprised to say I've never written about before.  I love finding new companies (especially small businesses) that have inspiring lines and products that speak to my sense of style, and recently I've made some amazing new brand discoveries that I wanted to share! To my knowledge, none of these brands are new to the market, but they are new to me. Two were an Instagram find, and two are lines that I spotted in local boutiques. All four have signature qualities that make me love their designs, and have quickly placed them on my list of favorite brands. 
Row Two: Priss Blouse // Georgette Floaty Float Top in Ovalicious // Cotton Shirt in Pheasantly 

I stumbled across Gretchen Scott while shopping in The Tipsy Mermaid on Block Island. As I was heading out, I saw an adorable ruffle-sleeve blouse on the hanger behind the counter and asked to see it. Although it wasn't in my size, I made a mental note of the brand and looked it up later. That blouse turned out to be the Priss Blouse (linked above!), which I still think is an absolutely adorable take on the traditional button-down. I soon discovered that Gretchen Scott's entire line lives up to the standard set by the Priss Blouse. She effortlessly combines color blocking, bright hues, and adorable patterns in her designs. Coupling these elements with classic silhouettes make for surprisingly wearable statement pieces that add instant happiness to an outfit. 

Row Two:  Claudette Linen Cotton Ruffle Top // Terry Oval Geo Jacket // Kennedy Dress 

Tyler Boe was another boutique discovery. I love this brand's attention to detail, all-season color palette (blues, pinks, and yellows can take you from summer into winter!) and fun twists on staple pieces. Most of their pieces have the simple elegance that can be dressed up or down, making them extremely versatile and a wise investment. Perhaps my favorite piece is their Terry Oval Geo Jacket; the oversized buttons and boxy fit pull from sixties style, while the adorable fluted sleeves (!!) add a modern touch. 
Row One: The Bee Flat Clutch //  No. 43 The Frame Bag Gingham // No. 19 The Mini Lady Bag in Saffiano
Row Two:  No. 22 The Beach Tote Pebble //
  No. 6 The Crossbody Soft // No. 42 The Ice Bucket Bag in Gingham

Neely and Chloe popped onto my fashion radar via one of those annoyingly-accurate Instagram ads. Obviously, Instagram's algorithm works, because I adore this line! Started by Tory Burch's daughters, Neely and Chloe Burch, the line has a lot of what I love from Tory's line - the classic, functional styles with fun colors and patterns - with a more youthful touch. The bag that drew me in was their Ice Bucket Bag. The retro shape is so unique and I love it coupled with blue gingham! They also have a collection of adorable mini bags that are exact replicas of their larger styles on a smaller scale. While those mini bags aren't particularly practical for me personally, it's such a cute concept and I love that they're stepping outside of the box as a brand! 

Row One: Jane Dress in Calypso Coral // Sleeveless Mahi Tunic Dress in Main Street Sailor Blue // Mahi Long Sleeve Tunic Top in Set Sail Sailor Blue 
Row Two: Addie T-Shirt Dress in Let's Get Knotty Chatham // Paradise Dress in Admiral Stripe Chatham // Bimini Boatneck Dress in Hydrangea Walk Camelia 

If you love Lilly Pulitzer, you'll probably love Mahi Gold. Their line functions in a similar way - a collection of signature prints are reproduced onto various mainstay items each season. However, while Lilly is by and large bright and ostentatious (not that that's a bad thing!), Mahi Gold is far more subtle and takes most of its inspiration from nautical New England. Their line is still growing; at the moment they just have dresses and some tops for women, but I can't wait to see where they take their collection as it expands. It was so hard for me to choose six favorite items to show you, but if I had to pick one out of the six above I'd say that the Bimini Boatneck Dress in Hydrangea Walk Camelia takes the cake. I'm a sucker for anything hydrangea-related, and I love that they used pink flowers as opposed to the classic blue for a new take on the quintessential New England flower.

Have you found any new brands lately, and do you have any to recommend to me? I'd love new lines to investigate!
