If you know me, then you know that working with local business owners is one of my favorite things about being a stylist. Over the past couple of years, I have had the chance to meet and become friends with some pretty amazing boutique owners in Kansas City. Two of my faves? Meagan Doyle, owner of AddieRose and Sarah Jabbour, owner of Scoobie. Meagan and Sarah hand-pick special and unique trends for the women of Kansas City and they both have pretttttttty great taste. These girls offer a selection of styles that range from edgy to feminine. If I pop in to either location, I know that I will find something special (and at a friendly price too!)

As my business has grown, I have had the opportunity to partner with Meagan and Sarah on projects, events and client shopping. Building community relationships within the KC fashion industry is extremely important to me and I am so happy to have these gals as friends and colleagues.

So…..when I heard they were both getting ready to celebrate some pretty big business birthdays, I couldn’t wait to help spread the word of ALL THE FUN THAT IS TO COME! Meagan and Sarah want to say a big HUGE thank you to KC for keeping their doors open! How you ask?? The next 10 weeks (that’s right I said 10…pretty much the whole summer) will be filled with giveaways and promos just for you! Then, there is going to be a big summer birthday bash on Saturday, August 5th! And you guys are of course all invited.

To kick off their 10 weeks of fun, they are hosting an event on Saturday, June 3rd! Scoobie will be popping up at AddieRose all day long with sips and discounts for all! Hope you can make it!


Now….About this look. I thought it would be fun to see how my flatlays come to life. This is exactly what I do for my clients to help them remember certain looks and to help inspire them to play with their style!

The Look


IRL Look

I love to balance my normally modern minimalist style with some feminine details. A pairing I can also find from AddieRose and Scoobie. Something else I love? Styling unexpected color combos…..just like this! Grey and orange is not something I would normally do, but it totally works. I balanced the edginess and muted tone of these grey deconstructed jeans with this feminine orange top with (gasp) ruffles. There is something about rips and ruffles that make me happy. I pulled the look all together with some silver jewels and my new watercolor clutch!

Outfit deets:

Denim: Flying Monkey Grey Rippies/AddieRose
