A Day at the Fair

Mannequin Love

The first customer I saw in the boutique had this dress in her hand, and as I looked to my left the mannequin was styled in the exact look you see here-  I had to have it.

After a year of living in Fairbanks, Alaska and I finally made my way to Fireweed Boutique. I had a last minute shoot and nothing in my closet to wear for a shoot at the fair so I reached out to see if they could style me. In under thirty minutes I had three looks and was out of the door.

For those of you who love every item as much as I do and wish you could have them but aren't in Alaska, don't worry! They have something called a Style Box where you can give them a few details, pay, and receive various items from their inventory. It retails at $75 but you only pay $45- for all my shopaholics it is worth the while. No this is not sponsored, but I have to spread the word about the deals.

It's been so hard living in a place with no: Forever21, Zara, Nordstrom, etc. It was a breath of fresh air walking into this boutique to find style at a reasonable price. I don't know how many times I used the word 'soft' while trying everything on but needless to say it was a lot. Every item is quality, comfortable, stylish.

I could go on and on but I think you guys get the point...I'm obsessed! If you ever happen to be in the area-stop by. If your regular online stores start getting boring- try out their Style Box.

Happy Hump Day

Flower Power

Spring for me means that all things floral are brought out of hiding- anything from dresses to bottoms. I'm usually weary of online shopping on new sites but recently checked out Ami Clubwear and was pleasantly surprised by the quality and fit of all the items I got, like these black floral bottoms.

The floral palazzo pants which have been dubbed my butt pants; in my opinion are cute, comfortable, stylish and make my behind look like a million bucks. What's not to love? The original price is $30 however this site is always having a sale and can be found at $10. In need of some new summer clothes, or other online options- then make sure to check out amiclubwear.com.

I have a few more items that I'll be sure to share with you guys this month! xoxo
