Finding the Good in Quarantine May 18, 2020 17:36
It’s been hard. That’s the gist of it. These past few months have been trying for all of us. I mean come on, all I’m asking is to be able to go on a coffee date with my friend, do a little (or a lot) of shopping, and be able to attend church on Sundays. It will happen, in time. I think many of us have been focusing on the countless things that appear to be wrong. It’s only natural, we’re living through a global pandemic after all and many of us don’t like change. I know I don’t. Have you taken the time to stop and think: Where is the good? The ladies at Noble Woman decided to dig a little deeper, and scrounged up raw feelings, real feelings to share with you about finding the good in quarantine. We want to be available to you in any way we can, and sharing our experiences seemed to be a sincere, heartfelt way.
“The good for me is that I don’t have to be so rushed in the mornings. I get to calmly drink my coffee, do devotions, and plan out my zoom meetings and videos for teaching throughout the day. And all of my family is home and safe...that is a blessing!” -Mindi
“I have to admit at first I could only focus on the negative. I was anxious all the time and kept worrying about things I could not control. Was I going to get sick? Was I going to lose my business? What if people I love get sick? What if I lose my mind???
I know it is natural to feel some anxiety during a global pandemic, but my fear was taking over my life. As the days and weeks went on, my focus began to shift. I started asking myself what can I control? What is important TODAY? I began to give my anxiety to God, and reminded myself that He is ultimately in control. His peace washed over me.
The last few weeks have actually been pretty special. I have been able to focus on the good. I have learned to appreciate every conversation I have. I began doing things that fill me up and bring me joy. I have let myself feel a sense of accomplishment instead of beating myself up for not achieving more in a day. I have begun to see myself through my Heavenly Father’s eyes instead of focusing on how I think the world sees me. I have felt a love from this community that I will forever be grateful for. I have learned to slow down and not fill my days with busyness. I have hope in the future. In addition, I quit Diet Coke and even learned a few TikTok dances!” -Courtney
“I think the biggest thing for me during quarantine has just been taking time to self reflect. It’s so easy to get caught up in the busyness of life that often times we forget that slowing down is necessary. I’ve really just taken this time to re-evaluate what I spend time on and what makes me better and helps me grow. I’d be lying if I said quarantine has been easy. I’m an over-thinker so alone time isn’t always good, but processing those thoughts into what’s worth my time has been a growing experience for me and helped me focus my time on things I value more clearly.” -Skylar
“I am so grateful to have all my children under my roof again! I love seeing and connecting with them regularly and I really love feeding them! I love that all of us have been given a breather from our very full and blessed but often stressful lives and that we can have this breather together!” -Erin
“I have found that slowing down has made me enjoy the little things that I usually don’t have time for. Baking, reading, walking, and gardening! I have definitely found joy in getting to do those hobbies again. I’ve been re-evaluating who and what is important in my life. Also the amount of time spent with my dog and Taylor has been fantastic.” -Hannah
“Quarantine has honestly been the best thing that can happen for my relationships, my house and my pets! My closest family lives over 5 hours away, so I normally only get about a 20 minute window to FaceTime them. Since nobody has anywhere to go, I’ve gotten to FaceTime them a lot more than normal, which I LOVE. I also feel like I’ve been in contact with more people now than I ever was before. I’ve had long and meaningful conversations with friends via social media and phone calls and texts.
As for my house, we are renovating and updating something new each weekend. Being home this much has brought on so many ideas and a lot of discussions about what we can do to modernize our little old house. We’ve done a lot of painting, taken carpet out, and we are redoing the flooring and our kitchen soon!
I honestly don’t think my pets will ever let me go back to traveling to work every day. They LOVE having me around to cuddle them while I’m working from home and let them outside all the time throughout the day. They’re getting so much love and attention, I don’t know how they’ll ever adjust back to me not working from home.” -Julia
“I’ve been going on rollerblade rides! Being outside helps me stay positive and makes me feel free. I have also been doing a lot of online shopping.” -Lauren
“It was really difficult coming home from college, especially since we left for spring break thinking we would still have a few weeks of the semester left. I think being home has helped me realize how thankful I am for Dordt and how much I appreciate my friends! Quarantine definitely makes us focus more on our relationships with others instead of all the other things that usually distract us.” -Lexi
“I was quite the Debbie downer at the start of all of this. These new terms like “social distancing” and “stay at home order” were now a part of our everyday life and vocabulary, and it was weird. I didn’t like it. I was not a fan of not being able to see my grandparents or even hug my friends. But I realized, although I may be stuck in my house for weeks on end, I shouldn’t be complaining. I’m healthy and my family and friends are healthy. Even though I might not get to visit those that I love in person, this separation has made me love them all the more. Waiting makes the heart grow fonder.
With the extra time I’ve had, I’ve gotten to do many things I hadn’t really been able to do much before. I’ve read lots of books, taken walks with my mom, tested my green thumb by planting some flowers, binge watched The Chosen (a must watch!), and practiced piano. And that makes my heart happy.
I find comfort in the fact that God is in control and He knows what’s going on. There’s no use worrying...He’s got it all figured out. He will never social distance Himself from me. That is good news. I cannot wait to get back to church!
Quarantine has made me appreciate everything in my life much much more. As challenging as this time has been, in a way I am grateful for it. I think it is a wake up call for everyone, a time to re-evaluate life.” -Meredith
We all have the time on our hands these days. Give it a thought. Where is the good?
Keep your heart up.

Fall Trend - Over The Knee Boots October 16, 2016 20:06Hello Lovelies! Today on the blog we are featuring one of our favorite trends this season: over-the-knee (OTK) boots. Nothing says Fall better than a great pair of boots, and we currently three different styles in the boutique. These boots will keep you warm and looking stylish this fall and into the winter.
Not sure how to wear tall boots? We've got you covered! Here's some of our favorite looks:
Wear them with your favorite sweater or jacket and skinny jeans. For a classic fall look, add a blanket scarf to the mix. When wearing a tunic or flowy blouse with leggings, adding OTK boots is a great way to complete your look.
Another of our favorite looks is to wear over-the-knee boots with any dress. I have to admit that as the cool fall air arrives I tend to avoid dresses all together because I know I will be cold (I sit by a space heater 9 months of the year). The best thing about OTK boots is that they keep me warm while looking fabulous! So don't pack your dresses away just yet, you can always add a blanket scarf or a moto jacket if your still chilly :)
If your on shorter side like me (5'4" with shoes on) don't lose your boots under a long dress, which will make you look shorter. Leave plenty of space between the boots and the hemline so you don't overwhelm your frame. The Neely boots can be folded over to regular tall boot height if your dress is little longer or if you just want a different look.
Here's the styles we have in store now:
Stop in and try on a pair of over-the-knee boots or order online, they will be your go to for almost every season!
Until next time, Happy Shopping ;-)

We are ready for fall here at Noble Woman Boutique and this week we have decided to spotlight all of our amazing moto jackets. The moto jacket is a fall and winter essential that will never go out of style, which is why we are seeing them year after year. They are so versatile that you can add them to almost any outfit. Plus, when you live in Minnesota, you need layers to stay warm!
One trend we are seeing this season is faux suede and we are loving it! These faux suede jackets are super soft and comfortable and will easily become your go-to jacket.
Of course, we never get tired of the classic faux leather look ;) We have a variety of colors in the boutique right now with more to arrive this season! One of our favorite looks is a moto jacket over a basic top with skinny jeans and heels.
You can also wear a moto jacket with almost any dress. When heading to the office in your favorite pencil skirt and blouse, a leather jacket is the perfect way to complete your look. Add it to plaid or wear it over a sweater. Seriously, moto jackets look great with everything!
In addition to these gorgeous moto jackets, we have a variety of coats to keep you warm and on trend this fall. Here's a little preview for you!
More fabulous fall coats and jackets will be arriving soon! Stay tuned to Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat to see all our new arrivals!
Until next time, Happy Shopping ;)

Because you can never have too many pairs of shoes... August 26, 2016 08:34
Hello Lovlies! Exciting news here at NWB...fall boots and booties have arrived! If you have shopped with us before, you may know that we have a love for great shoes. This spring we went to market in Chicago and fell in love with so many pairs of boots and booties, so we ordered them all! Here's a look at some of the great styles we have in the boutique now, but stay tuned because more fabulous footwear is coming soon!
Lucky Brand is one of our favorite clothing lines and their shoes never disappoint. The Basal Bootie is inspired by a vintage ankle boot, featuring a timeless shape and subtle worn-in detailing. These leather booties have a 1.2 inch heel height, so they are easy to wear day and night.
Next, we have the Sutton Bootie from Dolce Vita. These booties are nothing short of amazing. The Sutton is a laid back, lived in bootie. They are 100% suede, have a 2 inch heel height and are available in both taupe and anthracite (charcoal). I absolutely love them. You will too.
One trend we are seeing this fall is over-the-knee boots, and we are obsessed! We have 2 styles of OTK boots here at Noble Woman from Dolce Vita and they are adorable. They can be worn over leggings or jeans or throw them on with a dress for a perfect fall look.
The Kitt has a rugged romantic look with the ideal balance between comfort and chic. They are the perfect shade of taupe to pair with any look. They are 100% suede and have a 2 inch heel height.
The Neely is another over-the-knee boot from Dolce Vita. They are 100% suede and have a 1 inch heel height. The Neely boot also features a tie closure on the back so they can be adjusted for a comfortable fit. They are so incredibly soft and will stretch without stretching out. Pretty sure these need to be in my closet ;)
Add a little leopard to you life! These Leopard heels from Vince Camuto are a must have for any season of the year, but they are a great way to transition your look from summer to fall. These heels can be worn with basically any color and are adorable with stripes and other prints. Seriously though, leopard heels are as essential as a great pair of jeans!
We also have a variety of great summer sandals and wedges all 30% off. Check out our Sale Items page for fabulous shoes at an unbeatable price!
Happy shopping! See you soon <3

Denim Addiction! August 11, 2016 16:42
This week on the Blog--DENIM ADDICTION!
Fall is upon us here at Noble Woman Boutique and we are super excited about all of the fabulous fashion that is arriving daily! But what we are most excited about is...Denim! If you know any of us that work here, then you may know that we have a slight addiction to great jeans. Because of this, we have just filled the boutique with amazing denim in a variety of styles.
Here's a little peek at what is in our store now!
One of our all time favorite denim lines is Joe's Jeans. We currently have 11 different styles of Joe's including boot cuts, skinnies, petites and distressed jeans, so there's something for everyone!
Joe's Flawless jeans are just that...flawless! This gravity defying fabric is soft to the touch while lifting, smoothing and retaining its shape. You won't be able to stop looking at yourself in these jeans! We are definitely addicted!
Another popular style of Joe's is the Japanese denim. Let's just say they are amazing! This Artisanal denim is meticulously crafted for a superior quality that pairs age-old techniques and unrivaled technology making them undeniably soft and comfortable.
KUT From the Kloth
If you have bought jeans here at Noble Woman before then you have probably tried on our most popular KUT's. These jeans are a great fit with a mid rise in a variety of styles. KUT's are soft and lightweight with the perfect amount of stretch.
The Diana Skinny is slimming and flattering. Made of medium weight, stretch denim, with a relaxed fit.
The Mia toothpick skinny is crafted in an incredibly soft Cotton / Poly / Lyocell blend.
Just arrived today are the Mia Ponte Slim Fit Skinny. They are a flattering fit, crafted in a soft and subtle rayon blend. Easy to dress up or down, featuring tonal stitching and matte black hardware details. I am pretty sure that I wore these at least twice a week last fall ;)
HENRY & BELLE
One trend that we are loving this fall is flared jeans. Our Mini Micro Flare from Henry & Belle is a must have for your fall wardrobe. These flares are a maximum stretch jean that are form-fitting from the waist to the knee with a flare from the calf down. This style is a subtle, softer take on the flare jean. The perfect amount of stretch which provides a form-fitting, yet flattering look.
SANCTUARY OLIVE UTILITY PANTS
So these aren't exactly jeans, but they are too cute not to mention! The Olive Ace Utility Pants from Sanctuary are another must have for fall. These stretch twill pants feature denim styling and front exposed zippers, horizontal zip detail at hip, and utility pocket detail with a mid-rise skinny fit from hips to ankle. They are nothing short of awesome.
BIG STAR JEANS
Last but not least we have my personal favorite, Big Stars. Big Star uses Eco-Friendly dye and ozone wash technology to help "save the planet one pair of jeans at a time." Our Big Star Alex distressed skinny has a classic mid-rise skinny fit with subtle distressing.
The Alex also comes in olive and white.
We also have the New Hazel regular boot cut that delivers an elongated silhouette and effortless laid-back style.
Hope you enjoyed this sneak peek--Stop on in and check out our denim selection, we currently have over 25 different styles of jeans to choose from!

The jumpsuit makes a return this summer and we couldn't be more excited! These new jumpsuits from Bobi are a versatile addition to any wardrobe and they are not just for summer…you can wear them every season and for almost any occasion.
For vacations, this jumpsuit can be worn over swimwear. Pair it with sunglasses and a fun hat for a day at the beach. It is also super comfortable so it is great to wear while traveling.
If you prefer a more casual look, just add a pair of flip-flops and a cute necklace. You can wear these jumpsuits with your favorite plaid shirt tied around your waist with a pair of boat shoes or ballet flats. Throw on a slouchy sweater and you are ready for a cool summer evening. Switch up the look with heels or wedges and a clutch for an elegant wedding or for a night out on the town. Necklaces, bracelets and belts can take the jumpsuit from casual to glam.
These jumpsuits are also a great look for fall. Wear a moto jacket and booties for an edgy look that is perfect for cool fall days. Or simply add a blazer or a vest. Jumpsuits are a trend that is easy to pull off with the right accessories to fit your style.

Hi there beautiful people!
It's almost Mother's Day and we have an amazing selection of gifts for that special mama in your life. We have some outstanding candles, jewels, purses, sunglasses, and shoes that are perfect gift ideas! We all know that Moms deserve their own private island or trip to Paris but that sadly isn't in the cards for all of us! ;) Hopefully these gift ideas are the next best thing -- We certainly think so!
One fun note on these candles is that once you fully burn these candles out, you can reuse the base to hold your cotton balls or small jewelry! Plus-- These candles smell absolutely wonderful. It is a pretty rare thing when you can smell your burning candle from rooms away. It'll be hard not to buy every. single. scent. I know that I am struggling with that! ;)
Accessories are also a great go-to for gift ideas this Mother's Day. These new totes are perfect for that mama in your life who throws everything but the kitchen sink in her purse! ;) They are incredibly functional and versatile to fit every style. And don't forget about all the great jewels in store! We have a range of jewels from simple to more bold pieces. That one special necklace or pair of earrings can really pull an outfit together!
I hope some of these ideas can help you shop this Mother's Day! Check out the pictures below of all the products in store!

We love you, Courtney! March 14, 2016 21:38
For anyone who has shopped with us here at Noble Woman Boutique, chances are... you've met Courtney.
It's hard to even begin to describe how amazing she truly is. I can speak for all of us at Noble when I say, there is no one more qualified to become a co-owner! "Look Good, Feel Good, Do Good" This is something that Courtney completely embodies. Working at Noble Woman is more than just a job to her. It's a chance for her to offer hope and bring joy into the lives of others. It just so happens that she gets to do all of this while working with clothes. "There really is nothing quite like helping a client find something that she feels beautiful in." We want to take care of our clients in every possible way and Courtney does everything in her power to make sure our clients leave feeling better than when they walked in. "It's all about people. It's all about relationships. It's all about sharing Christ's love with others." So we want to take this blog post to congratulate her on becoming a co-owner and be sure to congratulate her if you see her in store! We are so blessed to have her!
Here's a few of Courtney's favorite memories from her time at NWB!
<< Goodbye scarves, hello jewels >> February 20, 2016 19:32
With this fabulous warm weather we have been having, it is time to pack away those thick scarves and cowls and replace them with some statement jewelry! We recently received a HUGE shipment of jewelry including statement necklaces/bracelets, layering pieces, and simple earrings. Check out these images of all the new pieces! If you can't make it in to the store, check out the new jewels online!
