We were excited to get her take on retail and her five favorite stores from around the country. Check out Kaleigh's Sunday Safari below!

"This pop-up shop was visually really interesting and represents the brand in a stimulating, multi-sensory way. I like that they used this short-term retail space to test out new product, to gather feedback, and to spur social mentions by providing an environment that screams "I GOTTA POST ABOUT THIS PLACE." 




Seattle | Website



"I love that this store has elements of nature that are incorporated with raw wooden beams, indoor plants, floor-to-ceiling birch tree posts, and imagery shot in the PNW region. There's a massive Kånken Wall (their signature backpack) and an in-store tailor where customers can walk in and get on-site alterations--at no extra charge (amazing.) It's also a great community hub for outdoor enthusiasts in the area, and they have guides and events that help empower people to get outdoors."



Los Angeles | Website



"This retail location on Melrose is a great place to get hands-on with the product, but what I liked most was the canyon room installation. You step into a room that looks like the Antelope Canyon in Arizona and hear nature sounds, which is a nice break from the chaos of the city and a really immersive, unique experience."

"I love the idea of an immersive testing experience--and who doesn't want to go schedule a 45-minute nap in a nice, comfy setting? I do, for sure. Sign me up."

"This is like walking into a childhood dream/Willy Wonka masterpiece. You can smell the sugar as soon as you open the door, and it's so colorful and whimsical--you instantly feel like a little kid again."
