Being a fashion blogger, personal stylist, and lover of clothes in general, I’ve come to appreciate all things fashion related. I was in North Park recently doing some shopping and I came across a couple boutiques I absolutely fell in love with; Mimi and Red, and Rae Boutique. A couple of things I look for when shopping is how versatile a piece of clothing is and how I can incorporate it into my existing wardrobe. We all see something we like, impulsively buy it, then get home and think “what do I wear this with?” That’s usually when I get a call or email asking for styling help! What was great about these two boutiques in particular is one, the staff is amazing and two, the store is set up in a way that makes it easy to shop and they had perfectly styled outfits that were ready to wear. Fall may have taken it’s time to come around this year, but these boutiques were ahead of the curve. I found a beautiful green and floral maxi dress and paired it with ankle boots and a wide brim hat that gives off a very cool girl fall vibe. Once the weather really starts to cool down, adding a jean jacket, oversized trench coat, or leather jacket will keep you on the cozy side. I always say accessories make the look so adding touches of jewelry, a hat, scarf, or a jacket can take your look from day to night. Check out Mimi and Red in North Park at 3041University ave.
