Today I’m sharing some of my favorite’s from my hometown: Greenville, NC. It is a smaller city (it’s growing though!) located in the Eastern part of NC. Known for the East Carolina Pirates, cheese biscuits, and little league baseball; Greenville is a place that I will always call “home”.
As a girl who loves fashion, it was a little tough growing up in such a small town. I found my happy place though and that was Monkee’s of Greenville. This store allowed me to get my fashion fix without having to travel to the larger cities. To this day, it is still one of my most favorite places to shop!
The inventory that Monkee’s carries is a good variety of the latest trends and classic pieces. It is also a place where you can easily be outfitted from head to toe. The store offers apparel, shoes, jewelry, handbags, and tons of other fun accessories.
I think every woman has their go-to shopping partner. Mine is my mom :). What I love most about Monkee’s is that it is the perfect place for mother-daughter shopping. We both can always find something we love here!
Speaking of love… let’s just talk about this outfit for a minute. My most favorite thing to wear in the summer is light, flowy dresses. This dress is just that! Wearing it I feel comfortable and ready to take on the heat of summer. Plus, I really like how it’s on trend with the off the shoulder neckline. This trend pairs perfectly with larger earrings like the T Marie tassel ones that I’m wearing. I’m all about statement jewelry so the size of these is right up my alley. If you’d like a little bit more subtle jewelry, then check out these earrings in the short version. The bag I’m carrying is a great one for versatility. It can be worn as a crossbody or even without the strap as a clutch. It isn’t on Monkee’s website but you can call the store to order it (252-758-7463) and have it shipped for free! Now, for the shoes… dun, dun, dunnnnn. Always save the best for last, right? These Joie sandals are sure to make anyone have happy feet. I promise if you step into these babies, then you’ll never want to take them off this summer. They’re very lightweight, the straps are made of a soft denim, and they’re embellished with tassels on the straps. What more could you ask for in a summer sandal?!
I had the pleasure of shooting this outfit with another Greenville native, Marie Manning. We had a horrible time working together, as you can tell by my faces in the photos ;). Obviously I’m kidding! She was so great to work with. Her easy-going personality made for a relaxed setting to take photos. As her photography business grows, I can see her doing very well with her clients by making them feel comfortable in front of the camera.
