Sanibel Island, Florida was one of our annual vacation spots as a kid. My mom is midly completely obsessed with shells, and this Gulf-side island is a seashell capital of the world.  Our collections year over year are proudly on display in all rooms of my mom's house- and now my apartment too. 

Sanibel's sunsets and beaches are great child- & teen-hood memories of mine, so it's no wonder that I love Tory Burch's spring collection pattern "Sanibel".  The colors, so fresh & Floridian, remind me of those Sanibel waters.
