Edna & Milly Boutique

Sometimes it can be so fun to step outside of your comfort zone and wear something a little different. Just like it can be so fun to wear your hair in a new style or order something you’ve never had before at a coffee shop, sometimes ya just need to change it up a little. When shopping with Edna & Milly Boutique, there’s something for every occasion and the prices are just right. And the best part? They’re local (right here in Mount Holly, North Carolina)!

Edna & Milly Boutique is named after the owner, Kayla’s great grandmothers, Edna and Mildred. She says, “They are no longer with me, but so close to my heart and I wanted a way to honor them. I honestly had a  tough time finding a name for the boutique, I prayed and prayed and prayed 200 more times until one Sunday morning our pastor asked “What is weighing on your heart most right now? What is something that you have been struggling to find answers to?” and instantly – those two precious ladies crossed my mind and I knew! I couldn’t have thought of a more unique names if I tried – I am so proud to have their love intertwined with my business.”

The dress I’m wearing here, the Layla Dress, is so versatile and can be paired with any top you choose (it does not come with the blush colored top shown on the website, just FYI). It looks great with solids or patterns underneath and if it’s chilly, you can pair it with tights like I tend to do in the winter months (although the length is perfectly long enough that I don’t need tights except for temperature control). I love the vintage feel of this jumper style dress and the fact that it has pockets and a ruffled hem makes it even better!
