Launching Lavendar Boutique Website

I am so excited to be launching the new Lavendar Boutique website today for owner Sherry Pollex. It is so often that I do automotive-related projects, that it is a breath of fresh air to do a girly site!

Located in Mooresville, NC, the Hollywood Glamour inspired store will make you feel like you’ve been transported to the streets of New York! Lavendar features the latest designer labels from Bella Dahl, Splendid, Sanctuary, Ella Moss, Three Dots, Tart and more and if it’s the latest denim from the runways of NY you’re looking for, Lavendar carries the largest assortment of designer denim in the area, including Hudson, Joe’s Jeans, Paige Denim, True Religion, Citizen of Humanity, MOTHER, Seven For All Mankind and more.

But let’s be honest. It’s hard to build a site for a boutique without coveting a few of their pieces… okay okay, A LOT of their pieces. I’ve already built the perfect fall outfit in my head. Military jacket, moto jeggings, gold necklace, two-tone booties… yes please! Shop it below.

After weeks of anxiety and indecision, I am proud to say I have purchased my first vehicle! Moreover, I am just elated that the whole car buying experience is behind me. It was miserable. Truth be told, I am one of those people who makes it a lot harder than it has to be. But after countless trips to countless dealerships, I was finally able to get exactly what I wanted: a 2013 Toyota Tacoma. Folks who know me well know that my first vehicle was a 1989 Chevy Silverado lovingly named Ron Burgandy, so it wasn’t a stretch for me to return to my roots. Just wanted to post a few pictures of it because I have never been so in love with a vehicle before!

On the fashion tip, I just scored these tan booties from Marshall’s. We’re venturing into that weird time of the season where it’s not quite appropriate to wear sandals anymore, but you’re not ready to retire your summer dresses just yet. Throw on a pair of tan booties and a denim jacket and problem solved!

I can’t believe I have lived a whopping five minutes away from downtown Davidson for the past two years and have never explored it until today! It’s like stepping into a time machine with its little soda shop, barber shop, and a pizza parlor. And it’s given me wanderlust for my own backyard. Growing up in Atlanta, I have always felt that North Carolina is so tiny. But I honestly don’t give this state enough credit. So I have begun compiling a to-do list for the fall; what better season?

  • Topping the list is a camping trip. Off of 321 in the mountains is Watauga Lake, which would make the perfect backdrop to a relaxing weekend.
  • I have never been to the Outer Banks but I hear it’s beautiful! Many lighthouses to explore and even the drive looks beautiful.
  • Only a couple hours away is Asheville and I’m thinking the perfect place to see the leaves change colors is at the Biltmore Estate.
  • On October 20th, the 40th anniversary of the Carolina Hot Air BalloonFest is happening in Statesville. How fun?!
  • I haven’t been to the Renaissance Festival since I was ten, but I’m ready to go again!
  • And as Halloween approaches, I am looking forward to sampling pumpkin ale at the local breweries and visiting haunted houses.

Any other suggestions of fun things to do in North Carolina?
