My Street Style features are never planned. I’ll be walking around, see someone wearing something interesting and ask if I can take their photo.
This week’s photo of Caroline was a first.
I was just about to tell her what I always do (“I love your outfit. Can I take your photo for Prairie Style File?”) when she turned sideways and checked out her reflection in a mirror, doing a move we’ve all done a thousand times.
She was shopping.
I stopped. And instead of my usual line, I blurted out “You have to buy that!”
Once I convinced her that my nosy little self didn’t work for the store, the LaMoure, ND resident told me she was thinking about it.
I told her she should snap up the emerald cardigan and bold, graphic print dress asap. Black and white is going strong into fall and I love the unexpected pop of the bright green sweater.
And the dress is so versatile. The way she’s styled it here works for a day look, but it would be simple to dress it up for night — a pair of strappy heels and a little evening bag and she’s good to go.
Thanks, Caroline, for telling me about three local shops I hadn’t heard about. I’m excited to check them out on my next road trip. Way to shop local and spread the word!
