|Boho Free|

Hey guys!

I have just loved sharing these last 2 looks from Gypsy Soul Collective and here is another one! This loose fitting dress can be worn many ways. It can be used as a beach cover up or like I did with or without a kimono, and booties. Or you can even throw on gladiator sandals, flats… I mean it can be a look that is changed up easily. I do have a white tube top worn as a skirt under since it is so sheer and a bralette from FP. If you have been following along, you may have heard me brag about this sucker!! It is a true essential for your closet…. but anyways lovin this look.

And how fab is this guitar that was borrowed from #thebrains Lauren Pollard . Yes, it totally completed the look.

Thanks guys for the love!

xoxo,

Brooke

|Romper|

I just love rompers but every gosh darn time I try one on, it is so cute but I can’t bend over without my bootie hanging out! Can I get a raise of hands or a head nod if yes.. that’s your romper dilemma too.

Well when I tried on this cutie from Gypsy Soul Collective I loved everything about but not my butt literally hanging out. Soooo as I’m standing in my closet thinking that I don’t want to send this back!… how can I make this work?… And then I found some black little lace shorts from Diva NY that totalllly worked with it. It was a perfect match! Problem romper dilemma solved. Throw some shorts under it (well not jean shorts) I think you know what I mean… And. call. it. a day.

|Tie-Dye DIY|

 I’m finally getting around to posting about this fun little DIY project I did with Caprice this summer!

We had a Summer Bucket List that was so great and I felt like we got a bunch done on it! Super fun! It kept me organized and I felt like this summer I spent good quality time making some great memories with the girls, and one thing on the list was to make Tie-dye shirts. I have always wanted to do this! I got the kits at Michaels and bought white shirts there too. Everything came in the kit and was great. I don’t remember the name of which one I got, but any basic kit will do the job. It shows you three different ways to do it which was perfect for us so we decided to try each way. For mine though I did end up cutting the top after because I really wasn’t loving how it fit…

She had so much fun making them! I hope Caprice will always keep hers and remember us in the backyard all messy making these together.

The girls are also wearing the cutest healing bracelets from Baltic Mermaid. These suckers are great. They are made out of Jade and other healing stones that are great for teething and more!

My good friend Alex from Alexandra Heckaman came by recently and shot some quick last minute photos of us playing at home. I just adore these pictures. I’m the one always taking the girls’ photos and it’s so nice to be captured lightheartedly playing with them….. This summer was great and I’m blessed to have been off with my girls. And. Just. Play.

Xoxo,
Brooke

|Vintage Pieces Mixed In|

Today’s look is one of my favs for many reasons! This dress is so rad from Gyspy Soul Collective. I love the back. I wore it with this to die for bralette from Free People. It is so cute and edgy with all of the lines. Girls, don’t stress about falling in love with a piece and then not wanting to get it because you can’t wear a bra with it or that your ugly bra with show! YOU HAVE to get some of Free People‘s bralettes. They are like $30 bucks and the best $30 you’ll spend. You’ll be able to wear them with so much, especially that outfit you thought you couldn’t wear. Trust me!!!

I recently was going through my jewelry drawers and found some amaze vintage pieces from my great-great grandmother, nana, and my mom that I fell in love with all over again and have been wearing ever since that day. Having pieces such as these in the family mean so much and are such a reminder of love every time you look down on them and I’m a hugeeeeeee fan of vintage…. totally a must with any outfit. The purse, the small gold watch, and the diamond and emerald ring are the pieces I wanted to share with you!

If you know me, you may know I love mixing patterns. A white dress is so cute with a color pop on your shoes, bag, and or jewelry. Don’t be afraid to take chances with your style. That is what makes you, you!

XOXO,

Brooke

|Coco Chanel|

Hey loves! It’s been awhile since I blogged some looks… I so thought since it’s summer tjaI’ll have more time but honestly summer is FLYING by! 1 more week left and I’ll be back at work. Tear…. But I’ll be doing some posts over the next few weeks for ya. Hope you love!!

Ok this little number…. I just have always been a huge fan of Style Lately ever since I’ve started insta a few years ago. They have the cutest pieces for such great prices and not to mention the most sweetest owner ever. This tee is so fun! I wore it with some ummm pattern high wasisted… Trousers not sure the appropriate wording for these pants but I love them. Got them awhile back at Forever21 and with the one and only fedora which i just love from my friend at The Minted Exchange. Yes, I wear glasses. I am SO blind without them, but these ones I found at Clarie’s on a family vacation for the 4th at my family’s cabin. I know totally random, but there are some good finds there! I just love a graphic tee paired with really anything, especially printed pants , super edgy.  And, you all need to stock up your accessory drawer with a pair a fake glasses. It adds just the right cool vibe to your outfit!

XOXO
