Date Night – Shop Small

(Dress / Clutch / Earrings: Sage and Sparrow)

We’re continuing our #shopsmall theme on the blog with this uh-mazing dress!  While I’ve styled it for a date night, it could easily be appropriate for a wedding, holiday party, or just a day when you’re really feeling yourself!  

It’s a common thought that to get a more formal dress, you have to spend big bucks at a large store.  Well this dress is a major reason to spend less and shop local! I love a balloon sleeve 8 days a week but combining that with a flowy wrap and a satin finish?! Dead. 

(Thank you Grits Cafe for location – make sure to visit when you’re passing through! The fritters are always A+)

I paired this plum dress with a snake print clutch (perfect for date night) and these FABulous leopard print pave hoop earrings.  Believe me when I tell you that these earrings catch allllll the light. For those special occasions, it’s okay to add a little shine.  If we can’t dress up for date night, shows, weddings, or the holidays, when can we?! 

*SN: I also love the name of this brand: “Mustard Seed”!  

And a little birdie told me that this dress also comes in a gorgeous marigold color and I.Cant.Wait.

I don’t know about y’all but I’m one of those people that sees a small town square and envisions boutiques and restaurants and mom-and-pop stores (think Stars Hollow for my GG ladies).  So when Sage and Sparrow popped up, I was thrilled to find that a total lady-boss was not only following her entrepreneurial dreams, but helping the ladies of middle Georgia dress well.   

So consider this your friendly reminder that there’s more to life than the convenience of Amazon prime (I know, I know… blasphemy!).  Make sure to shop SMALL and shop home for the holidays! 

Happy Small Shopping, Y’all!
