My family and I moved from a big city in Europe to a very small town of Waseca, Minnesota almost twenty years ago and boy was it a shock (read about our experience here)! There was one little grocery store, no clothing stores and only a couple restaurants. I’ll be honest, I couldn’t wait to get out and move to a big city. 

It’s been six years since I left Waseca and now I love nothing more then going back to visit my parents. It’s just so quiet, you don’t feel like you constantly have to do something and the town has blossomed! The town of Waseca got a flavor of the big city when the cutest boutique opened called, Zinnia’s. It has on-trend pieces ranging from clothing to home decor and everything in between. My mama is good friends with the owner, Tamie, and never seems to leave empty handed when she goes to visit. Her last visit she picked me up these adorable evergreen scalloped shorts that are total must-have this summer! You can dress them up with a pair of heels and blouse for a date night or for every day wear, throw on a pair of sneakers and a simple tee.


I’m sure you know, boutique clothing tends to run on the spendy side, but throughout the years, the clothing I’ve purchased from boutiques are always my favorite pieces in my closet. They’re made of good quality, are fashion forward and can be worn in so many different ways. I highly suggest investing your money in shopping boutique clothing, they’re pieces you’ll have forever!

If you’re ever feeling a road trip to Waseca, MN, definitely stop at Zinnia’s and say hi!
