This month, we are thrilled to feature Wells McConnell, founder of Swells—home of her signature and beautifully hand-drawn scarves.

We had such a fun catch up diving into the origin of her passion and brand and how she goes about finding inspiration for her creations. 













 Enjoy our conversation below as well as a curated gift guide featuring Wells' top gift picks for summer travel!

We can't help but wonder (and ask!) what someone as stylish as Wells would gift in a handful of summer gifting scenarios. Lucky for us, she was happy to share!

Favorite hostess gifts to bring to a friend you are visiting over the summer?
A scarf of course! She can tie it on her bag in warmer temps, and wear it around her neck in cooler weather :)

Party favors for an al fresco dinner?
Cocktail napkins, fun coasters, fun cocktail picks for garnishing

Your packing list must haves for summer travel?
A comfy sandal, simple breezy dress (can make it fancy or every-day), and cat eye sunglasses.

For the birthday girl celebrating her special day during the summer months?
I've been recently tying my twillies on Rose bottles! The wine may not last but our Silk scarf will!

Specialty gifts from Charleston that always bring delight? Anything from Red Clay Hot Sauce!

Now, if we've learned anything it's that a great scarf can be a conversation starter in addition to being a vibrant accessory to complement any outfit. Visit Swells to peruse Wells incredible scarves and pick a style that suits you best!
