South Moon Under comes to CT

Last week I attended the grand opening of South Moon Under's 22nd store in Westport, CT. The location in the downtown area, just steps away from the river, seems perfect for the surf shop turned high street retailer.

The ribbon cutting was performed by the First Selectman, refreshments were served, and I had the pleasure of meeting, chatting, and shopping with all the passionate members of South Moon Under's team.

I loved the aesthetic and flow of the store, with areas partitioned off in a way that made them feel like a store within a store. I was very tempted by some of the gorgeous swimwear, I even tried on the chevron suit. Ultimately it was the stunning jewelry counter that drew me in. I decided to take advantage of the 30% off coupon and purchase the House of Harlow Abalone Starburst Pendant - I loved the suit, but in terms of cost per wear the necklace will win.

If you are in the area, I would definitely encourage you to pay a visit to South Moon Under - I'm sure I will be back again soon!

  17. Sounds like a fun store! I think the flow of a store is VERY important. If you can't navigate it easily or it feels crowded, you probably won't likely go in there if you have a choice. I love the white and black today Lydia!

  18. I am just loving that gorgeous skirt paired with your jacket! The necklace you got is so pretty! I would definitely get more wear from a necklace, too. You rarely get me in a swimsuit!

  25. You are a blogger whose closet I would seriously love to raid. I don't think I have ever seen you wear something I didn't seriously wish I had.

  30. That necklace! I've had my heart set on a House of Harlow starbust pendant for the longest time - albeit the black version - and seeing it on you just reinforces how much I love it and need it in my life. I love everything about this look - black, white, leopard, or in other words, everything I love, plus the pendant... Words cannot desribe. Just beautiful!

  31. I love that pendant! What a great purchase. It's too bad the chevron swimsuit wasn't perfect enough to take home. It looks pretty in the Instagram.
