Abby & Jay Boutique is a cozy, relaxed, happy place year-round. Owner Abigail Kennedy opened the women’s boutique in 2019 by pulling from her time living in southern France and Miami Beach to customize a collection of breezy, easygoing dresses, blouses, shoes, candles and more.
“I pretty much keep everything to what I wear every day and hope people love my style,” she says.Kennedy mixes designer brands such as Kayla’s Armoir and Hailey & Co., as well as vintage pieces from Gucci, Christian Louboutin and J. Crew to keep the store’s inventory laidback and casual.
While the merchandise helps Kennedy thrive in her Parma boutique, it’s more than just the style that keeps customers coming back for more. Kennedy loves to help each customer find a personalized style that suits them. By doing this, she finds a valuable connection with each person that walks through the door. “It feels like family, in a sense,” she says.
An Item We Love: A bestseller, the Kendall wild flower top ($49.50) has puff sleeves that can be worn on or off the shoulder and a dreamy cream color that will cover you from late summer into early fall.
