A day on the Island!

C. Turtles and Co. is a hip boutique owned by Susan J. Flinn who buys the latest for her shop. She loves the Da-Nang cargo pants decorated with embroidery and studs. Or the silk cargo pants by Da-Nang that comes with with a frilly sash. Very cool. Have you ever seen silk cargos? Neither have I, but these looked very stylish and chic!
Long patio dresses are in again. I wore those when my kids were little but I must say I welcome them back, they are so comfortable and perfect for a casual cocktail party or walking on the beach at sunset. So sexy and they come in many colors. You will find many different styles of long dresses.
Also featured in this shop are back country shorts available in different colors. Susan said the Burn-out shirts are the most popular item and go flying out the door. It is a sheer Tee with prints on them. Those with the peace symbol are the most wanted. They are very soft fabrics and sell for $28. Also find the tees "Where the wild things are", soon to be a movie.
Soft fabrics are so in style in almost everything. Tie dye is hot again, you will find several lines in C. Turtles. Also very popular is the recession dress, it has a tiered skirt, you unroll the waist and wear it as a dress, so clever.
She features a lot of different styles from hot designers like Citizens of Humanity, Jams World, True Religion Jeans, Twisted Heart, Madeulook tees and many more.
The cardies with a tie front sell fast or the open front cardie in soft pima cotton. These are taking the place of the standard cardigans that button all the way up the front. No buttons. There was a whole rack of open cardigans.
I saw a great dress with a v neck, a tie at the waist and flared skirt in taupe, again in a soft, soft fabric, $149. Dress it up with some fabulous jewelry.
Also find the 4 X 1 super thin camis in all colors. Great for under tees or an open blouse.
Jeans will never go out of style and there were plenty of them here. Straight leg, mid-rise, jean shorts or skirts. Also in petites.
There were plenty of sundresses in different styles and colors to choose from. Perfect for our climate. The one size tank dresses came in yummy colors.
Find a nice selection of different belts, Yellow Box shoes and jewelry, Plus scarves, scarves and more scarves!! This is the year for scarves and they go with everything from jeans to cocktail wear.
Of course it wouldn't be Sanibel with out the staples, Sanibel Tees and hoodies!
Don't miss the accessories, you will find some unique jewelry,like the Make-a-wish bracelet that says enjoy, trust, or believe on a thin elastic. When it breaks, your wish comes true! How about the Karma bracelet, What goes around, comes around, wear the bracelet as a reminder to keep the circle positive, peaceful and loving, $46.
C. Turtles & Co. is a fun store to shop in for the unusual. It is the coolest boutique for the hottest looks!
C. Turtles & Co. is located at 1985-87 Perwinkle Way in the Tihitian Gardens on Sanibel.
