Save the Seals

 Jacket: Penfield c/o Sweater: Vineyard Vines (similar) Pants: J.Crew Boots: Hunter c/o  Hat:Vineyard Vines

A couple of weeks ago I was proud to be present at the release of three rehabilitated Mystic Aquarium seals (two grey seals and one harp seal) at Blue Shutters Beach in Charlestown, RI. The harp seal named Curie had spent a year at the aquarium before being deemed healthy enough to return to sea. (Curie is the seal
shown swimming in the tank. This picture was taken in late March).
Curie was rescued by the aquarium a little over a year ago due to a
respiratory infection. It was beautiful to witness not only the return
of the seals to their natural environment, but also the joy of the Stranding staff and volunteers who made their release possible. 

Mystic Aquarium recently
 offered me the position of Ambassador to the Stranding Program. I’m
not only honored but excited for this opportunity to work with the
aquarium and to raise awareness to the program. As part of
my involvement with this endeavor I will also be donating all revenue
from Classy Girls Wear Pearls to Mystic Aquarium. Mystic and the Sea
Research Foundation play a huge role in the community and all donations
go to educational programs for children, sea exploration, nature
conservation, rescuing wildlife, and training specialists. To donate or
learn more about the Stranding Program please visit the website

    Wow, you look so wonderful that I now wish we would have here in Bavaria also the Sea to enable a similar look 🙂
