Getting To Know Richmond + Sweetest Stitch Collaboration

Happy August to you!  A new month and a fresh start for new opportunities, experiences, and also...exploring!  I'm always really excited to take on a new city and now that I've gotten a little more settled on the home front, I've been getting around Richmond more to explore all the restaurants, coffee shops, and other small businesses as I enjoy doing.  So far, what I love about Richmond is the food and the small boutiques!  Food and fashion will always go hand in hand for me, lol.  Local boutiques are quickly becoming my favorite because of the more one-of-a-kind options.  I like the fact that I can shop a boutique and have more unique options and really make an item my own and not have to feel like there are a thousand other dresses out there just like mine.   I also love supporting local vendors and let me tell you, this city definitely has some of the best.  

I had the opportunity to visit a chic local boutique called Sweetest Stitch.  The store offers chic contemporary apparel, shoes, and accessories and I completely fell in love with everything it has to offer.  Not only that, but the shopping experience was amazing.  I love how bright, organized, and beautiful the store was.  The dress options were so pretty and I ended up picking out this beautiful floral Maxi wrap dress!

This dress is so easy and breezy, which is definitely the style I go for during this time of the year.  Also the perfect outfit to wear when dining around town.  I really love the wrap detail as well as the leg action that you can make as subtle or as noticeable as you want!  The color is also so flattering against my more melaninated sun kissed skin tone. 

On this day I went to have something sweet at a dessert only restaurant and spend the rest of the afternoon site seeing.   I thought styling this dress with a sort of Cognac colored bucket bag and caged blocked heels would be great for a day time look.  Plus the maxi dress is pretty long so I like the fact that I can wear heels and the length of the dress isn't compromised.

My summer style has been pretty minimal because most of my items are still in boxes. However, I am meticulously working on my closet to get everything hung the way I like.  I didn't mention before that I'm working with a bigger closet space so it's really exciting to plan out how I want my items to be organized.  I've already purchased new hangers and such to make things more uniform and color coordinated cause you OCD is real when it comes to visuals, lol.  Anyway, I will be sharing more with you all as I make my way around town.  If you aren't in the area to shop Sweetest Stitch in person, you can shop online as well!
