Southern Detour? + Exciting News

Where did you come up with Southern Detour?  I’ve been asked this question a few times, okay maybe a zillion – I promise I’ll get to that!  There are so many exciting things happening behind the scenes at Southern Detour.  I feel it’s the perfect opportunity to share those things with you and tell you how Southern Detour came about all in one post!

Last year, I went with my husband, parents and sister to the big ol’state of Texas for her Extreme Mustang Makeover Competition {if only I’d been blogging then…what an adventure}!!  By the way, her and her horse, Mister Twister, won and took home the check!  Isn’t he a cutie?

On the way back to South Carolina, we were throwing names around for a possible shop in the future.  I’ve always loved clothes, especially boutique clothes!  I am very southern, born + bred.  I am so proud of my southern roots.  We were definitely drawn to having ‘southern’ a part of the name and brand.  On our 22 hour drive, we passed a sign that said DETOUR just as I was thinking SOUTHERN and it clicked.  Southern Detour.  It was perfect!!  We all loved it.  You’re always on detours, whether you’re on an adventure, navigating through your day, or just traveling through this crazy thing we call life.  Shortly after, I had thought about blogging {because our lives are just so darn interesting} and the name could not have suited me better.

Simple little story, but I’ve been blogging here for a year and never looked back since!

Just recently, my parents have taken the name further and opened a shop full of cute clothes, antiques, jewelry, art, and all kinds of trinkets in our hometown!  They have carried the name Southern Detour because it represents everything the shop is about.  It has a southern flair and they are always on a detour looking for new pieces to add to their place.  So very exciting!!

Southern Detour is now a place where you can locally shop unique pieces you can’t find anywhere else, follow along with our life’s journey on the blog, and gather to make new friends + find encouragement.  We are merging the two on the same Facebook page so there will be less confusion and you can find everything all in one simple stop!  If you’re local, come visit my mom and find the perfect piece {or two, or six} for you to take home.

  7. How neat! It really is the perfect name for both a shop and a blog. Sometime I’m going to have to take a day trip and come see your mom’s shop – because the clothes you show on Instagram from there are just too cute!
