I am so excited to introduce y'all to one of my new favorite online obsessions – Gypsy Girl Boutique.  First of all, they are out of Jacksonville, NC which is literally a hop skip and a jump from me here in Wilmington.  I have a special place in my heart for local businesses so when I discovered these girls were from NC, I had to check out their shop!  And I’m so glad I did.  I love when I find a shop that has pieces I can take from day to night while also not breaking the bank.  And then discovering that the owners have hearts of gold?!?  Double bonus! 

Gypsy girl was founded by two best friends, Melissa (who shares my alma mater – GO PACK!) and Brooks.  Both share a love for fashion and style while also respecting a budget, if ya know what I mean.  Brooks is also a youth minister and regularly goes to Jamaica with her husband for mission trips!  When I heard that, well I kinda got all teary-eyed.  Jamaica is totally where my hubby and I fell in loveeeee on a mission trip so long ago (you can read more about that here) and I love that Brooks, her hubby and their church are still serving those people and that community.  Her husband, Sam, even founded a youth ministry dedicated to missions in Jamaica called Walk The Line Ministries.  Anyway, the connections I have with these girls are insane.  Did I mention that Melissa used to babysit one of my best friends?!?!  We were meant to be friends - Brooks, Melissa and I! - and I’m certain they are changing this world in other ways than fashion J  You can read more about their stories HERE.

Hey!  But I am so very glad they started this online boutique because these girls know fashion!  I received this dress last week and basically haven’t taken it off.  I’ve worn it out and about running errands with G and then out for a date night a few nights later.  It’s so comfortable and if I had to sum up my style in one piece it would be this dress.  I also love my new tee.  I’ve worn it with shorts during the day and even wore it to yoga (ok fine!  I didn’t actually go to yoga, but I did dress like I was going to yoga so that counts for something right?).  It’s tissue thin which is perfect for the summer heat.  I’m also dying over this dress and this one.  I love how Gypsy Girl has something for everyone.  I’m also going to need this comfy-looking top to pair with my cutoffs for the remainder of the summer, and there is something oh-so-cool about this top.   Yep, I'm gonna need that too

So anyway!  Go check them out and because my readers are so wonderful use the code GRATEFUL at checkout to receive 20% off!  Hurry Hurry!!  What are your favorite pieces from their shop?
