To start off, Uptown Normal is one of my favorite locations near Illinois State’s campus. It has a small town traditional look, yet some aspects of it happen to be very modern and updated. So it was not a surprise when I loved all of the window displays I photographed. I will begin with one of my favorites-Apricot Lane. As any other college gal on campus, I adore Apricot Lane. It has the perfect little boutique touch. The name itself sounds soft and sweet. The window displays for this season made me forget that school was back in session and made me crave fall even more. The displays were a traditional American fall setting. The only downfall about these window displays was the lighting was not working in its favor. Although, they most definitely did catch my eye (no surprise here) and were very warm and inviting; the sun seem to cause a shadow and making it difficult to catch all of the details in the window display.
However, one special aspect about the exterior of this boutique was that they had some side windows that had impeccable lighting. Although they were on the side, I could spot every detail. Overall, Apricot Lane had flawless window displays.
