Looking Chic with Plum Palmetto Boutique

Looking Chic with Plum Palmetto Boutique

I recently came across an adorable online boutique, based in South Carolina, and I just HAD to share. The owners went to CSU, which is a local Christian college in Charleston, SC. One of them still lives in the Charleston area and the other lives just outside of my city, Columbia! I always love supporting mom and boss babes, but even ore so when they’re local!

These mama’s are on a mission. They are both teachers and wanted to start a side hustle so they could spend more time at home with their children. I’m a stay at home mom, and I know how much I value spending that time with my littles. Any way I can help and support other moms do the same, I am all for it!


They’re also shopping on a teacher’s salary, so they know all about sticking to a budget looking, but still trying to slay. I know all about that too, since we’re a single income family. Regardless, I think I’ll always be a bargain shopper. There is just something so satisfying about getting a great deal on something you love.

Plum Palmetto has such a great variety of inventory that it’s literally a one stop shop. For real, you can get your entire wardrobe, from top to bottom (accessories and shoes included) at an affordable price. THAT is my favorite kind of online store! And the real gem? You don’t have to worry about not being local to SC because they ship… and it’s FREE. With no strings attached! I don’t know about you but in this online shopping world we live in, where stores are always trying to trick you with free shipping* (*if you spend $___) THAT is a pretty killer deal!


Here are some of the looks I featured with some of Plum Palmetto’s pieces. And let me tell you, it was hard to just pick a few items. I wanted everything. Everything.

Another thing I really appreciate about Plum Palmetto is that they describe the fit (or measurements) of each item and post it in the description. I don’t know how many times I have looked at an item online and been like, “ But how will that fit ME?” Thanks to their thoughtfulness, I can take the guesswork out of ordering and chose the pieces that would look best.
