Adore Boutique: Traverse City, MI

Last week I stopped by the new Adore Boutique in Traverse City and found cozy sweaters, leggings, and some gorgeous beauty products! The remodeled and rebranded shop is filled with women’s brands that we all love including my personal favorite yoga brand: Beyond Yoga! I was SO excited to see this brand carried locally at a Traverse City boutique! Their super-soft fabric and amazing fit makes them my go-to legging year round. A couple other great brands Adore carries are Cosabella and Lollia. In addition to seasonal items the store is stocked with high-end fashion basics, think stretchy tank tops and leggings that you wear practically everyday. Check out my pictures below to see some of the items they have in stock November 2020- Just in time for holiday shopping! Remember to support local as much as possible this time of year (and always), the money you spend goes directly back into our community!

A few of our favorite beauty items as discussed in our zoom happy hour… 

A few days ago my girlfriends and I hosted a zoom happy hour  (because we are stuck in our homes right now due to Covid-19- Stay safe ladies). Instead of talking about being cooped up, we all decided to present on a beauty product or two that we LOVE. So we all poured ourselves a glass of wine and talked about beauty products. Below you will find a few of the highlights along with links just in case you wanted to try them out yourself! If you like what you see or have another beauty suggestion, please leave it in the comments below. Stay safe and healthy. xoxo Kristy & Friends
