LOCAL CHIC FILES: A Day N June

For a few years, Lindsey Brown has been honestly my top Instagram friend. It was beyond cool to finally meet in person in 2015 at Christopher Schafer’s 5 Year anniversary party. Ms. Brown is the fabulous curator behind the boutique, A Day N June. Today marks this boutique’s first anniversary!

When choosing items for A Day N June boutique, what fashion icons are you inspired by? Why? 
The buying process for me is the hardest because I see a vision with every piece and I just want to buy it all! My inspiration comes from everyone everyday really. Sometimes it’s just a girl in a coffee shop that inspires a new look I want to display. Although Solange and Ciara have been giving me life lately!

How would you describe the Baltimore fashion scene? What is something you like to see improved in the Baltimore fashion scene? 
The Baltimore fashion scene to me is conscious.  I’d like to see more freedom in the Baltimore fashion scene. I’d like to see more thoughtless looks , sometimes people think to much and it shows , instead of just going off of what you feel and creating a look that represents you that day in that moment.

What are your plans for your brand in Summer 2016? 
I plan on expanding the brand , doing more pop up shops , and start looking for maybe even a small retail space to call home! I am excited for this summer!
