Thank you to FOLIO Apparel for sponsoring this post! All content and opinions are 100% my own.
Quick show of hands…how many of you find boutique shopping intimidating? It’s actually pretty common and I’ve occasionally experienced those feelings myself. Will the staff be critiquing how I’m dressed? Can I afford anything?
Well, today I’m here to share a local gem where I can guarantee that you’ll have a relaxed and enjoyable experience! When you stop in at FOLIO Apparel, you’ll end up feeling like you’re shopping with your bestie!
FOLIO is a contemporary women’s boutique located in Northfield Center, Ohio. They carry both apparel and gift items that range from “that’s all?” to “worth the investment”. Their brand assortment includes leisure wear to career pieces and is curated based on style, versatility and quality. Notable labels include Comfy USA, 209, Bobeau, JAG Jeans, Elliot Lauren and Isle with sizing running from 2-16 or XS-XL.
My FOLIO Experience
When I recently visited FOLIO, there were a number pieces that I tried on but this pair of silver snakeskin pants really caught my eye! They fit like a legging but the scuba fabric ensures that you’ll have plenty of coverage and that you won’t end up with bags in your knees after a few hours wear.
In need of a special occasion look, owner Sharon Anderson suggested combining the pants with a textured white sleeveless turtleneck top and a very light pink-sand moto jacket. I finished the styling by pairing the pieces with silver sandals and a blush envelope clutch. And I’ve gotta say – I feel fantastic in this outfit!
As an alternate styling option, Sharon suggested coral, the Pantone Spring pick for 2019, as an accent color and I agree that it would lend an incredible pop! The staff at FOLIO are very committed to ensuring their customers look good in their purchases and know how to style them for maximum versatility.
With that in mind, the white top is a wardrobe essential! There’s not much that wouldn’t work with this piece and I love how the light popcorn texture in the fabric adds visual interest. This incredible INSIGHT NY moto jacket is going to be my night out “go-to” for the foreseeable future. It pairs really well with both dresses and jean/top combos. The weight is just perfect for Cleveland spring/summer evenings!
I even have styling alternatives in mind for the snakeskin bottoms! While the print is a bit wild, the palette is quite neutral. How about pairing them with black Vans sneakers, a chambray button down and black waterfall cardigan for a chic but comfortable street-style look? Or come holiday with a silver metallic tunic or sweater and tonal heeled booties?
Below are a few other great styles currently available at the shop!
And gift ideas? WOW, there were a number of things I had my eye on! Remember, Mother’s Day is May 12th and quickly approaching. As an extra incentive to stop in, FOLIO is offering Natty Gal readers a 15% discount on original price purchases through May 11, 2019. One time use per customer. Just mention seeing FOLIO on Natty Gal at checkout!
