Yes, it’s true! This past Saturday, Dominic and I ventured into South Park yet again. Can you tell I love that neighborhood? This time, I got some great pictures of The Grove at Juniper & 30th, which we visited during the South Park Wild West Walkabout (posts here and here). I really went back to The Grove to buy an adorable bird print blouse by Everly, similar to a blouse that I bought from ModCloth recently. I didn’t quite understand the concept of the store when I first went during the Walkabout because it was full of people and I couldn’t get around like I would have liked. But because we went during a regular non-event weekend, I got more of a sense of this fantastic space. It’s much bigger than I remember and there is quite a bit going on at The Grove: it’s a book nook, clothing boutique, kitchen shop and creative space all in one. They even have sewing and knitting classes. I picked up the blouse that I wanted, and a couple of things for Dominic as well (a story book and a cute little toy dump truck).
The clothing area. The blouse I bought is just past the mirror (outfit post to come!).
The bathroom/fitting room, way cute!
Afterwards, we had a delicious dish of ice cream at The Daily Scoop, then we walked around a bit more, of course heading back over to Bad Madge, Make Good and Junc Life & Style. I want to send a big thank you to Jeffrey, owner of Junc Life & Style for your kind words on your Facebook page about my post (I wore my hat when I went in on Saturday)! We didn’t have dinner planned, so we picked up a pepperoni, sausage and mushroom pizza at Mazara Trattoria. My husband has fallen for said pizza and we are now in plans to have a sit down meal there soon. We devoured that pizza before I remembered to take picture of it for the blog. All the more reason to go back!
What a deal: $22 for these beauties at Bad Madge (the Everly blouse from The Grove is underneath)!
Dominic has been an excellent little boy this week (he’s already such a great kid, he’s just been extraordinary this week), so we rewarded him with a superhero outfit from So Childish. He wore the cape and mask for the rest of our walk and posed next to the yarn bombed bike in front of Graffiti Beach. Heads were turning as we walked around South Park and Dominic asked, “Mama, why is everyone looking at me?” I explained, “It’s not everyday they see a superhero walking around!”
