The Striped Blue Lobster

Shein striped shirt dress with Macon & Lesquoy blue lobster brooch

Did you know that bright blue lobsters actually exist ?

You’re in for a little ecology now so please skip if you’re not into that^^The usual colouring for lobsters in the Atlantic ocean is a greenish brown in American lobsters to dark blue in the European lobster species Homarus gammarus. But bright blue lobsters are a rare gift of nature! They have this particular shade due to a genetic aberration that causes them to produce more of a certain protein than others. This causes the unusual vivid blue colouring which I find absolutely beautiful! Sometimes, nature is totally unexpected, isn’t it? Therefore, when I spotted this amazing little brooch by Macon & Lesquoy I was totally taken.

Blue and White Striped Shirt Dress with Knotted Front by Shein

This is actually the first time I tried the Shein online shop. After I was contacted by them with the idea for a cooperation I got the opportunity to pick this amazing shirt dress. There were quite a few pieces I really liked in the shop but this striped dress seemed the perfect piece for both work and play. Besides, I like the avantgarde look of the tied front – it’s an unconventional and modern take on the classic shirt dress.

I was impressed that the dress is pure cotton and very well made when I received it. I think it will be a fun and welcome addition to my office wardrobe! As it’s quite short I opted for black leggings and classic peeptoes to go with it.  Do you like striped dresses as well?

    That mini lobster is too cute! :D

    Thanks for the quick mini lecture too.. as someone who’s more into physics and electrical engineering, I don’t know that much about topics such as ecology. :)

    Love the outfit too! With most of my received stuff from Shein, I was pleasantly surprised. Glad you had that experience as well! :)

    Looking lovely! I hope you have a nice summer!
