My husband and I spent the weekend in Blowing Rock, North Carolina.  The area is known for its showy fall leaves, waterfalls, and breathtaking views.  The little town, which is nestled into the Blue Ridge Mountains, features several family owned restaurants and boutiques. 

My favorite store in Blowing Rock is Monkee’s, which is owned and run by the sweetest couple, Jess and Kenneth Wehrmann.  Monkee’s has shops all across the South and markets itself as an upscale girly boutique that provides the “ultimate shopping experience.”  You will absolutely find this to be true at Monkee’s of Blowing Rock!  When you step into the store that is located right on downtown’s main strip, you will find enough inventory to rival the contemporary section at Neiman Marcus in Charlotte.  They sell everything you need to make a complete outfit from clothing, to shoes, to accessories.

Most importantly though, you won’t find better customer service anywhere else!  The store is fully staffed with friendly and knowledgeable fashionistas who are more than happy to help you put together any look.  Jess, Kenneth, Madison, and Leighann all make on-point suggestions for every outfit and I completely trust their opinions.  I wish I could have the four of them dress me every day.  Even some of the other shoppers in the store may chime in to help as well! 

The staff at Monkee’s helped me pick out several outfits and I will be sharing all of them soon.  For today’s post I am wearing a gorgeous fisherman’s sweater that Kenneth picked out for me.  I love the honeycomb weave and the longer hem in the back.  The sweater is classic and can take you anywhere from a quick run to the grocery store to Après-ski in Vail.  Jess selected the adorable jeans with light distressing on the knees and on-trend raw hems.  They fit like a glove and are very comfortable.  Jess also suggested the stunning gold feather-like earrings which I plan to wear on repeat.  Like the beautiful Louis Vuitton bag?  It is sold in their store too!

Shopping online is convenient but if you want a fun and tailored experience then you need to head straight to Monkee’s in Blowing Rock… What they say is true … “You might need a bigger closet!”

xoxo, Liz

    How cute! I love your style. I wish I lived closer to the north to check out that store. But it sounds fun! I’m glad you had a great time there.
