Learn about a local and independently owned online boutique with a boho-chic style.
Kayla Moreland has always had a love for fashion but never knew how to incorporate that into her life. Once she knew that opening her own shop was where she wanted to take this dream, the rest was easy. She knew the vibe she wanted to go along with her store as well as the style, now all she needed was a name.
“The hardest part was picking a name,” says Moreland. “I knew it had to be something real and something that had meaning.”
Moreland has been asked several times where she came up with the name Acoustic Living, and she wishes that she had a crazy story behind it, but the truth is, it just hit her. “I was driving to work, stuck in traffic, and listening to Bob Marley, and that’s when it just popped in my head, Acoustic Living,” says Moreland. “It’s raw and stripped just like the acoustic version of a song.”
Moreland is passionate about life and her work. She is a full-time fur mama to two pitbulls and shares her life with the man of her dreams. She also works full-time as the marketing coordinator for a local plastic surgeon’s office.
“I’m not quite sure how I keep it all together, or if I really am, but this is my life,” she laughs. “No one is ever going to care about my dreams more than I will. Everyday, I try to be the best person I can be and live a life I am truly proud of.”
Moreland says that Acoustic Living Boutique is unique because it is just owned by one person: A 26-year-old, ambitious woman chasing her dreams and giving it her all to make sure that they come true.
Moreland hand-picks everything that goes up on the site, does all of the photography, shipping, and website maintenance. “I’m not a franchise or someone who bought into the next ‘trendy’ protein shake to sell,” says Moreland. “This is my dream, my vision and my hard-work.”
Moreland is currently working on some new t-shirt designs to bring into the shop, and her goal is to give a portion of proceeds to a local animal rescue. As someone who is very passionate about breed recognition, Moreland wants to contribute to giving dogs second chances and help them find their happily ever after.
