Pleasant Surprise

If you've been around for any amount of time, you know I have a huge aversion to the mall.  Seriously, I hate going to the mall.  It's not the crowd that gets me (I Black Friday shop every year).  It's the noise/over-stimulation/loiterers that bother me.

Thrift stores, department stores, and boutiques are more my speed.  

Sunday I was attempting to get all of my Christmas shopping done for my husband (Totally didn't realize how old I am before deciding to shop alllll day.  Ouch) and needed to go to the mall for one of his gifts.  I made it my absolutely last stop for many reasons, but ended up having to wait around for an hour and a half to pick up something I purchased.

Long story short, the mall pleasantly surprised me.  As I was wandering aimlessly (knowing I still needed to hit up Bed, Bath, and Beyond and Wally World) to waste the time, I came across a new boutique in the mall, Pink and Blue.


I've never seen a boutique of this caliber in a mall before.  In fact, I was so flabbergasted, I even asked the young lady waiting on me if they were considered a "boutique."  Her response, "You could say that."  I felt really silly after that question.

I would compare this boutique to Daisy Rae, Kiki LaRue, or Clothes Hound.  

Anyway, even though I was Christmas shopping, I decided to pick up a few items there that I fell in love with.  Actually, I can't call it a decision...more an impulse...but who's keeping track?  Unfortunately the owner doesn't currently have a website, but I left her with my business information in case she was interested in doing a giveaway or advertising.  I'll keep you posted.
Blouse: Everly c/o Pink & Blue, Jeans: Rockstar (Old Navy), Flats: Goody's (old), Necklace: eBay

I tell you all this because it was so refreshing to see something new, innovative, and stylish come to our mall.  I'm telling you, this was my first time being there in at least a year.  
VERY Pleasant surprise.
