I have long dreamt about owning a boutique. Boutique Owner = dream job = pee-in-pants kinda excitement.
You know how you JUST KNOW you would be good at something? This is that thing for me.What has held me back? I need someone to handle the business side of things who would talk me down from the run-away impulse decisions I like to blame on my right brain. In fact I believe my right brain is so big it has left no room for my left brain. Yup, I've got one big right brain up in my dreamy little head full of creative ideas, intuition, and people-reading skills. The other thing stopping me? No mula...yeah, that...that is kinda a big one. Not impossible, but a big hurdle.
So, to feed my desire in the meantime I find myself searching for décor inspiration all the time. My dream setting would be: chevron floors, floor to ceiling windows at storefront, french chandeliers, over-sized french mirrors, and tufted velvet seating.
This is how I picture it: I live upstairs, I get up, take the dog out and grab a coffee and the café nearby, (okay, a Starbucks would work too). After showering I would go downstairs and get ready to open for the day as the dog lays on his bed by my side, (in my day dream he's an angel and would not bark each time someone opens the door).
Then I would set the mood for my 'friends.' I wouldn't think of them as 'clients.' My guess is that repeat customers would become friends. One of my biggest goals would be to make everyone feel welcome, that there was no pressure to buy, and that the boutique could be a happy place for people to come to and relax. Setting the mood would include: Macarons or some other delightfully edible treat on a fancy cake stand for friends to nibble on, free lemon water and coffee, vases of fresh flowers, soothing music to enhance the ambiance, candles glowing and adding scent to the space, and favor bags for all my friends who stop in. What would be in the favor bags? If my dream ever comes true you will have to visit my boutique to find out!
What do you dream about? Any left brainers out there with the same dream?
Hello, Loves. Ann Taylor just happens to be having a great sale right now. If I purchase a skirt, I try to make sure I can get at least 2 different looks minimum when I buy it. Here are 2 looks for a little inspiration to get your juices flowing. You can't tell very well in the photo, but the blouse in look #1 is striped. I love to mix patterns...how about you? Another look would be to add a cute casual blazer with a tee, a pair of wedge sandals, and a clutch for a date night out.
I buy more skirts than dresses only because they seem to fit me better. Are you more of a dress person or a skirt person? Happy shopping!
