With small businesses all over taking hits from COVID19, I decided that one of the best ways I could help was to put a small business spotlight on those I love, am a customer of, or just really like their products. As most people work from home, online shopping has become a primary outlet for panic buying or de-stressing in general.
For full disclosure, this is a friend of mine’s boutique. She is not paying me to do this and I’m not receiving any gifted items. This is something Emmi has zero clue I’m doing, as I’m doing it purely from a place of support and love of fashion.
Laurel E. is a female owned, small business with their storefront located in Sherman, Texas. This boutique has been meticulously and exquisitely curated by Emmi Wilson, the owner, operator, and namesake of Laurel E. Emmi is not only one of, if not, THE kindest and sweetest soul I’ve ever known, but extremely fashionable and knowledgeable on the market and what she brings to the bustling boutique scene.
With all of this being said, I’ve decided to highlight some of my favorite looks from Laurel E. This was a hard feat, because I could easily have profiled the entire catalog, but I’ve picked some looks that I’m obsessed with and I know you will too!
**Laurel E. ships nationwide (free shipping for orders over $100) & has a current discount code for 10% off your order using SOCIALDISTANCE - all items are linked, just click the name!**
Let’s get to it!
Patriot Stripe Crew Neck $108
This is a year round item, especially when you’re from Texas. This is a great option for cook-outs, days at the lake or river, Memorial Day, Labor Day, Fourth of July - quite literally anything goes. For colder weather, you can layer a button down shirt underneath for extra warmth. I could see where the price may cause some doubts, but with the option to wear this year round and style it many different ways, you’re going to get more than your money’s worth out of this item.
Pesaro Romper $79
THIS !!!!!! THIS IS IT !!!! THIS IS THEEEEE PIECE !!!! Vertical stripes and color tones that are friendly to everyone and I mean everyone. This is going to be slimming and very chic. I actually have the heels that are paired in the product picture down the list a little but this is THE ‘FIT. There are so many ways to style this and honestly, I’m dubbing this THE Brunch ‘Fit of 2020. Get it while you can and then thank me later.
Warm Taupe Heels $42
I know I ~said~ these heels were lower on the list, but I’ll just make buying the whole outfit easier for you and include them right after. These are cute, comfy, on trend, and chic. They will transcend any event or attire type and remain trendy forever. These are a great buy.
Emma Boyfriend Jacket $89
Everyone needs a good denim jacket in their closet, and this one gets my full stamp of approval. It’s got a great fit and great wash that’ll look great whether you dress it up or dress it down.
That’s The Spot $59
Where can’t you wear this? This is the cutest top that’s great for literally anything. It’s always going to be in style and this green looks great on everybody. This is another great staple piece to include in your closet, because you will ABSOLUTELY get your wear out of it.
Magical Sandra Dress $90
This is a BuddyLove (manufacturer) item that I CANNOT get over. The print is new off their Spring 2020 line, and the dress style looks great on everyone. Church, brunch, work, dates, baby shower, weddings, wedding shower, bachelorette parties and more can be a great place for this dress.
Doing Great Tee $23
I absolutely had to end my highlight here, because Emmi Wilson is DOING GREAT with how she continues to curate Laurel E.’s catalog. This iconic quote tee is a must have, especially at its price point. In this day and age, we all need the reminder that we’re doing great.
I feel like a broken record in some of these descriptions, but it just goes to show you the overall theme in mind while curating the catalog: looks great on everybody, is something that can be worn to many different events in the majority of every season, and something that will be on trend for ages.
While I’m only highlighting these pieces, the entire store is truly phenomenal. This is a boutique that is here to stay and will be relevant in fashion for all ages throughout the years. With the website recently launched and giving the world access to Laurel E., I do not see how this boutique does not become a major contender within the next decade or less.
