{ inspiration board } tortoise shell

I absolutely love when classic accessories make a resurgence. This year's tortoise shell trend has been an easy way to add a touch of sophistication for centuries. In its early years, tortoise accessories were made from the shell of the hawksbill turtle. Concern over the turtle's extinction in the early 20th century lead the industry to recreate the mottled black and brown pattern in celluloid. I've been reveling in the print with a chunky J.Crew necklace and even paying homage with a newly curated Pinterest board.

  2. That case is enough to make me want to switch to the iPhone.

  3. Gorgeous gorgeous photos! I've been drooling over anything tortoise shell as well. I've had my eye on these Chanel tortoise shell wayfarers for awhile now, but the price tag is pushing me further from making my purchase! :(

  4. I LOVE that print!! My old favorite headband was tortoise but sadly it broke and I haven't found the perfect replacement. But my backup sunglasses are tortoise :)

  5. I love tortoise shell too! I had a tortoise shell watch years ago that I loved until it broke. I need to get a new one :)

  6. I really like the tortoise shell iPhone case. Too bad I still have a 3GS one. Time to upgrade.

  7. That watch! It's my next buy!! (Just bought it in silver and lovvveee it!)
