    • Local Boutique-ing

      Hey, pretty girl!

      Recently I’ve been on a boutique binge – mostly because I hate having the exact same clothes as a million other girls. Plus, shopping at local boutiques is not only fun, but you’re supporting a local business.


      • A Bushel and a Peck
        • About
          • This store is a hidden gem! Along the downtown Rosemount strip, you can easily mistake this boutique for a classic home. The set-up of the store is open, light and features two levels. The upper level is clothing, accessorizes, bathroom scented items and shoes. The lower level consists of home decor.
        • Finds
          • Tanks
            • Cheetah Print
            • Red/White
          • Jeans
            • Flare
            • White


      • The Stash
        • About
          • This store is more of the classic boutique – a little on the smaller side but full of amazing finds. My favorite sections of their store was their wooden signs with sayings and necklaces. A lot of them contained empowering or funny sayings that would be perfect for any style.
        • Finds
          • Necklace
      • Shop Chicks
        • About
          • Shop Chicks is a spin-off of “A Bushel and a Peck.” This store had a very similar feel, but was a tad smaller. I found it much easier to find casual wear and home decor that appealed to a college level girl as opposed to their sister-store.

    • Transitioning to Fall

      Hey, pretty girl!

      When it comes to September, it can be tricky to figure out which season you are in. It’s 85 and sunny one day… and 45 and cloudy the next. With cold lecture halls and hot dorm rooms, what is the best way to transition to fall.

      1. Jean Jackets

      Jean jackets have a fall and spring vibe to them. They work perfect if you’re wearing white bottoms, a dress, a romper or a jumpsuit. While I personally am not a fan of denim on denim, if you can pull it off, it’s a statement.

      If it’s a hotter day and you’re attending class in cold classroom settings, tying the jean jacket around your waist is the best idea. If you get hot while outside, it’s just a fashion accessory. However, in the classroom, you can use it to keep warm.

      My Favorite Jean Jacket

      2. Neutral and Dark Colors

      With the vibrant colors of fall as leaves begin to change on the trees, neutral and dark burgundy colors are the way to go. Not only will these pieces be easy to mix-and-match in the future, but they keep you in style with whatever environment you’re in.

      3. Cardigans

      Layering is the key to fall, and cardigans are the coziest way to do this. Stripes and neutral tones can turn your cardigans into a fall statement piece, while grey and cream tones, specifically, can also be used into the winter months.

      Cardigans are also basically a blanket that you wear, so there is no going wrong with that 🙂
