South Moon Under – Some Random Selfies

South Moon Under is a favorite, and hugely popular, East coast boutique that originated out of Maryland’s eastern shore, in Ocean City, Maryland, many years ago. Thankfully, one of the original outposts of the store besides the beach  location is nearby to where I live, located in Bethesda, MD. For many years now it’s been a favorite boutique of mine, and many others, to shop at for its large variety of clothing styles at various price points, accessories, and shoes. I particularly love going there when I don’t know what I feel like buying but I know I’m in the mood to buy something (this “mood” strikes all of us at one point, right?!). Or, I have an event coming up but can’t quite find the right top yet and need to look in person. Sometimes when I stop in and try on a few pieces, I takes pictures because I want to see how it looks on. Or, if I can’t decide whether to buy the item that day, I have time to think about it and can refer back to a picture to remind me of how it looked.

Now that I realized I have a bunch of random selfies on my phone from various stops in at the store, I figured I’d gather them up in a quick post to share.


The tops below I tried on back in the Spring/early June when I was thinking ahead to having a few good tops around for upcoming events and evenings out. These were my favorites. And guess what – some of these are now on sale – yeah!

Mid Summer

When I was at the beach on our family vacation, I stopped in at the store in Rehobeth Beach. I have found that each stores carries different pieces so it’s fun to check out what the store there carries vs. what’s in the store closer to home. I barely had time this specific day to try much on but was in love with a lot of the jackets and particularly the necklace I tried on. I saw enough good pieces that I plan to go back later in August (or after kids are back in school) and try on more jackets.

Wearing Madewell shorts, Free People tank and Jack Rogers sandals and the bracelet is actually from South Moon Under, too!


I had a belated birthday dinner with girlfriends planned and wanted a new top to wear for the occasion. So I stopped in to the store again, focusing only on tops that would work for this birthday dinner. However, I often get distracted by jeans so no surprise that this day that I grabbed a pair to try on with the to. I was drawn to this particular pair by Hudson that are a darker wash because after deciding to return the rag & bone pair from the Nordstrom sale (see me trying them on here), I was still on the hunt for a new darker wash pair. Turns out the Hudson pair is perfect in every way! Soft, unfinished hem, and a good mid rise.

Note: Sorry the pictures look funky but the lighting in the dressing room was so bright it was making them come out this way and can’t figure out how to fix it! ?

Abbeline tank Hudson jeans

Tank – LOVED. The straps laid well, the material was comfortable, the pattern wasn’t too much for my taste and I’m a big fan of blue. Sold! Wearing XS| Jeans | Shoes  (Tkees Duos)

Chloe oliver tank

This tank was really pretty with beads and is fitted at the waistband. The fit was also comfortable and I liked the higher neck but the sides are very low and open so I’m not even sure what the right bra is to wear with it. A strapless bra would still show on the side. I am wearing an XS for reference.

abbeline tank pinkThe color of this Abbeline tank is a pretty pink and the material is light. There’s a bit of slight detail on the armholes and it crosses in the front. However, it gapes open quite a bit! Had to pass on this one, just not right for me. Wearing an XS. Note: The link is actually to this tank in blue because I can’t find the version pink online.

I plan to do a more specific round up of Fall clothes from South Moon Under in the next few weeks. Keep you posted!
