Happy Thursday Everyone! Hope everyone is having a wonderful morning so far. I have my coffee & coco-roons ready to go at the computer, and I am off to a go productive start this morning. Garden has been watered, Layla has been on her first stroll of the day, and I have answered multiple emails already! Yay I love me some Thursday!
You may have seen earlier this week I stated in one of my posts I was meeting up with a local boutique owner to pick up something to show on blog. I met with Katie the owner of Hammer and Heart Boutique for some Coffee downtown Raleigh. It is always so enjoyable to meet up with the people you are collaborating with. This way you get to know them better and can form more of a relationship. We talked for a while about our different stories and background on blogging. She is a super sweet girl! We both had a few things in common: we both are passionate about supporting local businesses / designers, and we both are trying to market the more affordable apparel #budgetblogging. I learned she only sells clothing made in America and is planning to have some pieces from a local designer very soon! Exciting stuff 🙂 cannot wait to check that out!
There is a site online you can shop, or follow the events page on her site: Click Here to see where you can find her stuff!
–> This weekend Hammer and Heart is having a fashion show at the BBQ Festival in Apex. This will be going on all day! It is free to the public. Go grab some BBQ and check out her current styles!

This is the Primrose Mini Dress I picked from her site! I love the rose pattern, and how it can be either casual or dressed up! I paired this dress with my coral mules from Target & new hat! (both in prior posts – with links to shop) I wore it both belted and unbelted. I also would pair this with my pink converse sneakers to dress it down!
