Nora's mom, Megan,  is the owner and designer of Nora Sells Sea Shells. She started the shop, when Nora was just six months old, after having trouble finding small and stylish bows for her. She had always enjoyed sewing, and decided to put her craftiness to use, and design her own bows. She first started selling her pieces through word of mouth and locally, and had great success. A few months later, she opened her Very own Etsy shop and is stocked at two upscale boutiques. The shop consists of some of the CUTEST headbands, skirts, bows, and nursing/ infinity scarves. My favorites are her baby turbans, I think I need one for Stella in every color!  Here's just a small example of the goodies you can find in her shop.

Doesn't Nora look so darling in one of her mom's designs, while baking cookies?!

One of Megan's most favorite parts of the day is dressing up Nora girl.  She loves mixing and matching different styles and prints, and combining vintage with current trends. The most important thing however, is that Nora is comfortable. "She is a very active little girl, so I make sure she can run, jump, play, and be her silly little self in everything she wears, while still looking put together and cute! " 

I just adore all the different unexpected colors and prints Nora wears. This aqua and hot pink combo, is so fun, and the heart tights under her overalls... GENIUS! She sure has the casual yet cool style down pat.

Megan's mom saved a lot of dresses and rompers that belonged to her when she was Nora's age. Seeing Nora dressed up in these adorable baby doll dresses and bonnets, began a love affair for shopping vintage children's clothing. These knee socks and ruffled puff sleeve dresses make sweet Nora look like the most adorable living doll!! Is she not the sweetest ever?

Thank you so much Megan for sharing your style tips, and your beautiful little Nora with us!! 

Yours Truly,
