Today I’m going to introduce you to Skipper Belle Boutique for Day 2 of Boutique Week! Skipper Belle is actually owned by my sister-in-law, Shawn. I love that she has a selection of pieces that are comfortable, easy-to-wear and really well priced. I find myself looking there when I need something colorful to punch up my wardrobe a bit – like the purple top in today’s post and this dress that I just ordered last week! I think she also does a really great job picking pieces that give you a sort of effortlessly put together look – read on for a couple of the outfits she’s styled recently (and that I may now have to add to my cart after writing this post!).
Meet the Owner
Shawn lives in Dallas and is the mom of two beautiful girls and she started Skipper Belle back in January 2016 selling to friends and family. She would Email out an OOTD and people would reply with their size and she’d deliver to them the next day, then went live with the online version of the store in November 2017.
What inspired you to start Skipper Belle?
I love, love, love clothes! It’s truly my happy place and I’ve always dreamed of owning my own boutique. Friends would ask me to style outfits for them and would always comment on my outfits so with a ton of encouragement from family and friends I finally decided to start Skipper Belle.
How would you describe the Skipper Belle style in 3 words?
Fashion-forward, chic, and affordable .
What is your favorite thing in your shop right now?
That’s like asking me to pick a favorite child- it’s impossible! I have so many items that I love and I just got back from market and I’m so excited for all the pre-fall and fall items that are coming soon to Skipper Belle!! It’s all soooo good!
Right now, I love our Summertime Soirée Dress. It’s perfect for all summer occasions! I’m short and this dress makes me look tall! I also love our Sunkissed Ruffle Dress. It’s a piece that I can wear now and in the fall just by changing accessories. In the summer I pair it with turquoise and I’m obsessed with this color combo! In the fall I’ll pair it with brown or leopard print and a cute denim jacket. I am always grabbing our Lipstick Jungle Leopard Print Cardigan out of my closet!!! I actually wore it today with our Sweet And Simple Sleeves Top in Pink and High Waisted Vintage Denim Shorts in white. In the fall I’ll switch the shorts out for our Black Distressed Jeans-these jeans are the best jeans ever! They have the perfect amount of stretch and distressing. I wear these year round! If anything, these are a must have! And last but not least I love, love, love our Clare Espadrille Wedges! The quality is amazing and they are super comfy. I can wear them all day long. They run big so size down.
What would you say are the keys for bringing happiness, success and style into your life?
- Happiness – Wake up each day with a grateful heart
- Success – Stay true to who you are
- Style – Have fun, try something new
What I’m Wearing
I don’t really have anything like this purple top so I was excited to feature it. It seemed to fit pretty well with white jeans but I think you could also do it with distressed denim shorts to make it more casual. But it’s super soft and I really like the asymmetric hemline and the booty coverage that comes with it!
They’ve got a lot of cute summery things in the shop right now too, and a few other things I’ve picked up here recently include:
- These Golden Goose sneaker dupes
- This orange dress – so cute for summer and into fall!
- These leopard shorts with this black top (a super versatile one that goes with so much!)
- These black scalloped shorts
