Apricot Lane Opening











blouse: free people (available here )// pants: diy (see steps here )// jacket: the limited (old, similar here )// shoes: shoemint // sunnies: prada (available here )// watch: michael kors (available here )// bag & jewels: stella & dot

Let me start by saying that if you are ever in the North Hills area then you need to check out the new Apricot Lane Boutique that just opened this weekend. Seriously guys, I'm not saying that I'm any connoisseur on boutiques in the Triangle, oh wait I am.....but this one has it all. No need to break the bank for interesting pieces that are sure to find a welcome place in your closet because their price point is spot on with brands like Lucca Couture and Everly (which I am a big fan of). And the friendly owners and staff are more welcoming and helpful than 99% of other boutiques in the area!

I had the pleasure of attending the grand opening this past Thursday night and I was giddy with excitement ( I love finding new local boutiques in the area). I was also pretty stoked to wear my new satin heels with the pants I DIYed the night before which you can see step by step how to do on the What2Wear facebook page here.

You can also see some of my favorite items in the store right now on the What2Wear facebook page and some snapshots from the night on instagram @doodlesmom812

BTW: this is not a sponsored post...it is just my dream to one day own my own boutique and I like to give praise to those who are doing it right :)

Ps I'm linking up with Molly again for #yolo Monday's so be sure to check that out! Themollybuckley.com

And for the necklace du jour... The Stella & Dot Zoe Lariat


And some fun extras....the Stella & Dot Liz Drop Earrings

  4. Love every detail of the outfit, especially the sunglasses and earrings! These pants are a great alternative to a military ones, which are too popular right now and which I'm unbearably tired of.
