sweet lola b.

I just returned from a trip to St. Charles, Illinois with my daughter, Ella. It’s about a 40 minute drive from our house…through some pretty serious countryside. We were invited to an open house for an adorable shop called Lola B’s Boutique. The owner, Kasey, is a fellow California native {she hates the Illinois winters as much as I do!}. She has a fantastic 100 year old home {photos here}, which is the perfect setting for her anthropologie-ish goodies! Until her next open house, or if you’re not in the area, you can find her things at her online shop, or check out her really lovely blog!
