a spotlight we can all enjoy.

there’s something about shopping local. eating local. & sipping at a local coffee shop. you feel appreciated. among friends. and like you’re being let in on a secret. and as much as I love kohl’s, starbucks, & the cheesecake factory ..there’s no secret there. no mystery. very consistent, wherever you happen to be. which can be comforting. but you find the gems when you walk through new doors.

there is a quaint, locally-owned shop, called {spotlight style boutique}. just off a lively main street. in cedar falls, iowa. I was immediately drawn in by the bright, fun colors of the store. owned by a local family. who made me feel at home the second I walked in the door. pointing out new arrivals. grabbing my sizes. starting my dressing room. and helping me accessorize.

I went in to get my shop on. and I came out a verrrry happy camper.

    So fun! Love the maxi dress you ended up getting, but think you need to go back for that white cutout dress – so so so cute!
