When I “grow up” I want to have my own clothing store!
About a year ago, I discovered an adorable store in Carterville, Eccentrics. They are a great example of how I envision mine to look. The interior is so adorable, there are so many great clothing options, and the employees are always so helpful and sweet. Like Philanthropy, they are a store that uses their platform to give back. They run “Give Back Beautiful” campaigns involving different charities and organizations!
I have been eyeing this coat for awhile. It is sooooooooo cute! The pale pink color is beautiful and the fabric is so soft. It is super lightweight too so it is great for this time of year. When I was walking around picking out clothes for the blog, I saw this sweater dress paired with the coat. I was originally going to style something different with it since it was already on display, but I just kept coming back to it. It is the perfect length to wear to work or school, but it could also be paired for going out (it would be great for graduation parties and events coming up too). And, I have been seeing a lot of turtlenecks this winter and spring so I think it is super on trend. I love that it is a print to go with the simplicity of the coat and the black and white stripes really work with the color of the coat.
Basically, if you haven’t been to Eccentrics, you are missing out!
