As a mom, it can be hard to spend money on yourself: especially on clothing. Sometimes it’s just easier to grab a pair of leggings at Target and a t-shirt that may or may not fit on your way through the store. After having three kids, through struggling to lose the baby weight, I know I have a hard time getting the nerve to spend money on myself to feel glamorous again. Luckily, though, beauty + grace makes it a possibility. Located at Carmel’s City Center, it’s easy to get to, parking is ample, and the clothes are hand-picked by the shop’s local owner.
I love beauty + grace because the options are wide: from semi-formal to casual, the clothes are beautifully made, comfortable, and on the cutting edge of fashion. Perfect for a night out, on the sidelines of a basketball game, at the gym, or chasing toddlers at the park: cashmere, dresses, sweatshirt, t-shirts, handbags and shoes, beauty + grace is seriously a one stop shop for luxury clothes.
I definitely consider myself a t-shirt and jeans (…yoga pants) kind of girl, and always have been, but what’s nice about springing for well-made brands you can wear every day is that they fit and feel better than discount staples. I got the sweatshirt I’m wearing below at beauty + grace and not only get a ton of compliments wearing it, I feel comfortable, yet put together, in just a sweatshirt and jeans.
If you don’t quite consider yourself a fashionista, but would like to visit the shop and get some information on one of the brands Beauty + Grace carries, just go! The shop is hosting events almost every week for the month of March!
