Denver Weekend Guide: Highlands Square

If you are looking for something to do with the remaining summer weekends, try heading over to the Highlands for a small weekend outing. Highlands Square is full of unique boutiques, cafes, and restaurants that are fit for just about any style or taste.

Here's my list of "must-see" places:

1.  Kismet

3640 W 32nd Ave
Denver, CO 80211

Kismet is a growing "hot-spot" and Denver destination. The "the easy wear, no fuss" clothing boutique opened seven years ago and has expanded to the streets of Southglen and the Lowry Town Center. The shop carries an array of brands, including my favorite Johnny Was, which are comfortable yet fashionable. Located inside Kismet is what they call a "Pop-Up-Shop." Each season, Kismet offers a wide selection of the season's most popular clothing item. This summer, the Pop-Up-Shop carried a wide variety of dresses, but with fall right around the corner, the Pop-Up-Shop is now featuring tops from August 10th - August 31st.

Kismet's cute affordable style isn't the only reason to frequent the shop, each month Kismet donates to a different charity with their 12 Months of Giving campaign. This month you are given the opportunity to round up your bill to the nearest dollar in order to support Heifer International, a global non profit dedicated to ending poverty and hunger in a sustainable fashion. At the end of the month, all three Kismet stores pull their earnings together and match whatever amount of money is made.

2. Wordshop

Right next door to Kismet is the Wordshop Paperie, a local paper shop featuring eco friendly goods. They feature custom invitations, announcements, and unique Denver oriented graphic design prints. As an avid writer and sucker for fine paper and stationary, I appreciate their goal to revive the written word.

3. The Perfect Petal

3600 West 32nd Avenue,
Ste B, Denver, CO. 80211-3193

My next stop is The Perfect Petal, a flower shop and boutique that features a little of everything, books, perfumes, accessories, home decor, and more. They even carry my newest obsession, Library of Flowers, an American Perfumery. Their products feature garden inspired scents like true vanilla, willow and water, and my favorite, forget me not.

4. Dragonfly
3615 W. 32nd Ave
Denver, CO. 80211

Last but not least, I'd recommend popping into Dragonfly, an independent women's clothing and accessory boutique that caries designer denim and contemporary brands like BB DakotaJ Brand Jeans, Splendid, and more. The trendy store is attached to Strut, a shoe store that carries Swedish Hasbeens (I've been wanting a pair of their clogs).
