Bringing you a sneak preview of the oh-so-fabulous Mackenzie Horan Shop NavyBLEU capsule collection. Best of all, it’s officially LIVE starting today at 8 AM ET on NavyBLEU’s website! You won’t believe the genius collaboration behind this delightful capsule that’ll sure to be in your closet for years to come. Mackenzie teamed up with her mom, Beth, and the talented Erin of Shop NavyBLEU to create a lineup of dresses and swim pareos that’ll embrace the coastal summer vibes.

Moreover, this marks Mackenzie’s first apparel collaboration with a brand. I know she took the decision very seriously. A few weeks ago, we had dinner at CRU with her and her fabulous husband, Will. In chatting with her, I could tell how much she sincerely cares about this capsule. Friends, this wasn’t something she jumped into lightly.

Kenz, as we call her, is SO incredibly smart and talented (oh, and FUNNY). Like one of the funniest people we know. Shop NavyBLEU struck gold with working with her and her mom. Truly! Her diligent work and design sensibility are seen throughout. Every single piece shines. I’m so happy for her and Mrs. Horan. Plus, she’s been super supportive of my collections with Sail to Sable, which I’ll always be thankful for.

Who is Mackenzie Horan?

Allow me to introduce you to our sweet friend and the ever-so-brilliant Mackenzie Horan Beuttenmuller. We call her Kenz! 🙂 We met her countless years ago, and it’s been a joy to watch her as a true creative force. Her blog and Instagram highlights the people, places and things she holds dear – especially her daily life with her awesome husband Will and their three adorable boys, Teddy, Peter, and Tucker.

Back in 2009, Mackenzie launched her blog, Design Darling. Over the years, she’s embarked on exciting journeys across various cities in the U.S., and soaking in inspiration and experiences wherever she goes. From showcasing the cutest toddler boy shoes to dishing out top-notch restaurant recommendations on Nantucket, there’s a little bit of everything to indulge in. Mackenzie’s posts weave together the worlds of decorating and personal style, and as devoted mom to three vibrant boys, she navigates the joys and challenges of motherhood with grace and flair.

Her journey in designing not only her home but also her wardrobe and the life she loves is an inspiration to us all. So, if you’re looking for a delightful mix of coastal chic, family adventures, and a touch of whimsy, Mackenzie’s website is the treasure trove.
