Summer is the hardest season for me to dress for – We all spend so much time in air conditioned offices at work that when it comes to a “fun Saturday outside” I feel out of my element. It’s sweltering outside but any “lightweight” shirt is inevitably see through, and any t-shirt is well… a t-shirt. Which is great but not when you’re trying to wear something other than a t-shirt. The struggle is real. This shirt is my answer.
I recently discovered Mynt Boutique in Durham (which is where this shirt is from). They are right across from my favorite restaurant in the area, Nana Taco – man that place has the best margaritas. Ok, it’s Monday morning so maybe I should stop thinking about a mucho marg.
Anyway, the boutique is one of those “not crowded / not junky” boutiques where everything is streamlined and separated. Insert praise hands emoji and thank you. It had me flashing back to the days when I worked at Max Studio in California and would space the racks at the end of the day. Translation: “space the racks” means making all the hangers the exact same space apart at the end of the day.
Without fail I would finish and there would be one last customer to come in, not try ANYTHING on, but push all the clothes to one side and she was looking through. hahaha So if you are a customer going in at the last 5 minutes of the day, would you mind leaving the racks spaced for the workers? Man I have ALWAYS wanted to make that public service announcement haha.
I’m so excited about revisiting my old stomping grounds in California this week 🙂 I leave tomorrow so I’m off to start packing! This tank is comin’ with.. If you want one just call Mynt – they ship everywhere!
Have a wonderful start to your week and thank you SO MUCH for reading!
