Wandering Uptown Whittier

Some days are just meant for wondering, don't you think so too? I don't have the luxury of dropping my full time job and traveling the world so instead I randomly go on what you might call day trips, er more like a couple hour trips to get my mind and body away from the norm of daily life. To me one of the most fun things is to find something new even if its a shop I found on Instagram  that is a 25 min drive away. I think it all goes back to our animal instincts of Hunter & Gatherer. 

I have been following this store Local Fixture on Instagram for quite some time. All of their pictures are so cute and the products they carry are some of my favorite brands! They have a great online presence and I was so pleased when I walked into the store to see that it is just as inviting to curious minds and the ambiance is inviting! Their entry table features Frasier Fir candles that smell like Christmas! 

If you love Voluspa candles they have every scent and their reasonably priced. My favorites are sake lemon flower and Santiago huckleberry but honestly I could smell all of them and be in heaven. 

The center of the store features children and baby clothing, accessories, books and toys. You will be saying that's cute like a million times. Trust me, I did! 

One thing I really liked about this store is there is a built in coffee shop! They serve Stumptown roasters which is always a smooth coffee in my opinion. Anthony was my Barista, he was so knowledgeable and friendly and he made me a killer latte! 

Oh look, there's my latte! Check out Local Fixture for the cute gifts and goodies and stay for the coffee! 

I walked by this window front and was attracted to the simplicity of it so I of course had to go in and look at Haute Mess.

Haute Mess is two boutiques in one and features a boho luxe side as well as a more casual everyday side. Love the space how light and airy it feels. 

The colors in this rug are like a tequila sunset. I need this rug in my life! 

Here is the more casual side of Haute Mess featuring baseball caps, bomber jackets and basics. 

This concludes my wandering of uptown Whittier! I hope you enjoyed, and please go support local small businesses and tell them I sent you! 

Btw I saw this Psychic Hut on the way home and thought it was the cutest thing ever! I want to live in it!
