EIGHT YEARS! How is this even possible??? Seriously, we can't believe our little 308 is turning eight. Sometimes it feels like it was just yesterday when we opened our 308 Boutique doors to the world, but it is true when they say time flies when you're having fun! And to say we have fun would be understatement because we love dressing YOU. Honestly, nothing makes us happier and assured that we're right where we need to be when we see you smile in a 308 piece.
We here at The 308 Boutique in Elkhorn and Holdrege strive not just for fantastic fashion and trendy outfits, but seek to instill confidence and bring out every woman's inner beauty, as well. When you look good, you feel good and vice versa. We are rooted in the belief of “Pretty Things Inside” which comes from 1 Peter 3:3-4: “Do not let your adornment be merely outward – such as elaborate hairstyles, wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel, but rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God.” The 308 was created to remind you of that inner beauty that you all have, while outfitting you in fun, fashionable pieces that you feel confident in.
So to celebrate eight great years in true 308 fashion, because you know your girls love a fun photo shoot, we played models for the day and have some beautiful spring pieces to share with you!
Spring Must-Have Item #1 - Blazer
Spring is the best time of year to wear blazers inside and out of the office! We can now ditch the winter coats and jackets and opt for a blazer for that ideal extra layer for cooler mornings when you're headed out the door. Blazers are an obvious choice for any office or business setting, but we suggest having a little fun with them for play! Reach for a bold color or fun printed option and layer it over a graphic tee for a twist and pair with high-waisted jeans with a white sneaker. You could also keep it simple with a white or black tank and rock cutoff jeans shorts with a gladiator sandal. There are so many fun ways to style a blazer this Spring!
Spring Must-Have Item #2 - White Tennis Shoes
If you are a fellow midwesterner, then you are fully aware that even though it's Spring, that doesn't always mean warm weather is here yet. So for those days when it's a bit too chilly for open-toe sandals but not cold enough for booties, a pair of white tennis shoes will do just the trick! The crisp bright white keeps your look light and effortless. Plus white literally goes with anything, so they are beyond versatile!
Spring Must-Have Item #3 - Pleated Maxi Dress
A maxi dress is a must for warm weather because they can be easily dressed up or down and can be worn for a million different occasions and activities! To keep it casual, layer it with a jean jacket and simple tan sandals and keep the jewelry to a minimum. And if you want to take it up a notch, rock that beautiful mermaid hair, swap the simple for statement earrings, and opt for a stunning heeled sandal or wedge. We love this version because it comes in three different gorgeous color choices!
