Shop Small Business Saturday With Local Stores I’m Obsessed With

current obsessions Small Business Saturday

Small boutiques are my favorite places to shop. I love the unique clothes different stores have and that you can’t buy them at bigger, National chain stores. Clothing from small boutiques feels like wearing something special. Not only are their pieces cute, but they won’t be worn by everyone. So when someone asks when you got a dress or a skirt or a pair of shoes, you tell them and it’s like sharing a little secret. I’ve always been drawn to these kinds of stores so when I’m traveling, I often like finding one to take a couple pieces back with me. It’s like taking a little bit of the city with me back home. These boutiques are also often locally owned, shopping in them helps the owners and their business and helps to keep money following in the community rather than to some faceless CEO across the country. Keeping the local community thriving by shopping small is the whole reason behind Small Business Saturday. And to honor that (and some of my favorite places to shop), here are four boutiques I’ve found and love. And you can buy from every single one of them (even if you aren’t local!).

So here’s a little secret, I don’t like pumpkin pie. It’s nothing against pumpkin pie, I don’t really like pie all that much. I know, I know. Kind of unAmerican right? Well, for all you other pie-dislikers (I know I can’t be the only one out there), who don’t want to be left out on Thanksgiving, here’s a pumpkin cupcake recipe that will (almost) take the place of a pumpkin pie. Or for someone who wants to shake things up or for someone who wants impress their new in-laws at Thanksgiving dinner. Or maybe you got stuck doing dessert for Friendsgiving or maybe you just love cupcakes. Whatever the reason, these cute and delicious little treats are perfect for whatever Thanksgiving celebration you’re on your way to. I made these for the first time a couple years ago for a Friendsgiving and they were a hit so I’ve been making them every year since. And this whipped cream icing recipe has been my go-to for practically every baked good. It’s just the perfect amount of sweet and perfectly fluffy. Plus, it’s so easy to make (I’m talking three-ingredients-easy!) Trust me, after trying this, you’ll never want whipped cream from a can again.

Classic and Cozy

IMG_4693

I cannot believe Thanksgiving is less than a week away! My mouth is watering from the anticipated food and I’m so excited to spend time with my family. This look is perfect for a cozy Thanksgiving dinner. The chenille sweater is so soft and warm, perfect for staying in all day. And this skirt is classic and bound to get you compliments from your whole family before dinner. These boots are one of my favorite pair; they may look high, but they’re super comfy to walk around in. Plus, being over the knee, they keep your legs warm. Bonus, right? And I love this stunning red color. It’s a pop that’s perfect for fall! If you need me, I’ll be cozied up on the couch with my dog and a pumpkin cupcake!
