If you have been following my blog for a little while now, you know that I have loved to share different shops, boutiques, or places that are small businesses! I have shared a few different small shops that I have purchased items for Carter’s wardrobe, and now I have one to share on Payton’s behalf! I love looking for unique and cost effective clothing items for both kids. Now that we have a girl, it was time to build up her closet with some good stuff too! I would love to introduce you to Darling Little Ruffles clothing boutique. CLICK HERE to head right to their website!
So a little back story of course of how I found this adorable boutique. The owner of the shop Sarah, is a gal pal that I went to college with! We both majored in Therapeutic Recreation and had several classes together over the years. We actually ended up interning at the same place as well! Since then we have both gotten married and had babies. She has the sweetest little girl Evelyn, who is right around Payton’s age actually! We also use the same nutrition system each day. It has been so much fun re-connecting through all of this! Here is a little more about her and her family:
My name is Sarah (the lady behind the screen doing a little happy dance when you place an order), I am a wife and a mother of one! We are from the gorgeous state of Michigan. My hubby and I spent the last six years living in other states but Michigan kept calling for me…. there truly is no place like home.
I have a Masters Degree in Administration in Parks and Recreation, which I used at my previous position at a senior center; planning activities and trips all over the country/world for seniors. I started Darling Little Ruffles Boutique because I loved buying unique clothes from other boutiques and I wanted the opportunity to be a stay-at-home mom, but still help provide for my family. I love the uniqueness of these boutique style clothes because when I would take our daughter to daycare in Carter’s brand clothes, sometimes we would show up and another baby would have on the same outfit as her. Now with these cute and unique clothes she most likely won’t be wearing the same outfit as another little girl! Plus when we go out people are always complimenting her clothing. I hope that everyone else will love these clothes as much as I do.
If you ask me, I’m all about finding unique times for my kids too like I said above! I love that Sarah was able to start this boutique up with SO many cute items already, especially during quite an odd time for our country. Online shopping is growing, and this is the perfect way to get some goodies for your sweet babes too! There are so many amazing seasonal options, and more. Here are a few photos of Payton in some of the adorable clothes! And did I mention, the MOMMY AND ME SECTION!
Don’t forget that when you shop small, no matter what item it may be, you’re supporting SO much more than you might think. That could be paying for extra groceries, dance classes, sports, and more. I personally love connecting with the owners as well. So many of them are stay-at-home-mamas or are even using their small shops as a second income for their families. We can all relate to wanting to provide as much as we can for our kids and family. So why not support some others that feel the same way?!
I know there are tons of amazing small shops out there. Feel free to reach out to me, and we can collaborate together! Message me and follow me on my Instagram: CLICK HERE. I’m all about supporting mamas and others who have them. Now head over to Darling Little Ruffles, to get some shopping in!
Lots of love & God Bless,
