Black on Black and 2 Hats 

  
Hey loves!

Black and black is fab but I always always add color to it somehow and I seriously don’t plan it. My hands just gravitate to choosing color.. the tan hat is some sort of color not sure how much color that really counts but… yeah if you notice the shoes. I have nothing wrong with all all black but I seriously have a thing for color. My brain must be wired that way. hahhah (insert emoji)

Feed Me or Fight Me

  
I am just going to say hashtag hangry.  Don’t you just hate this feeling?!!! I am the worst.. could you imagine feeling like this constantly?Well Feed Me or Fight Me is a company in San Diego started by a veteran that donates $1 from every tee bought to help feed the homeless veterans. I just love this lifestyle brand. Check them out!

|Spread Bliss|



I am so happy to share with you guys about this gem of a shop Braided Bliss  the owner Ansley is seriously an angel. The sweetest thing ever. She started the company in hopes of spreading bliss and  good vibes to others.

/// ABOUT BRAIDED BLISS ///

Spreading bliss is more than an action. It’s a way of life. It’s about embracing the strength of the smallest act of kindness and knowing that it can make a large impact. It’s about loving freely and radically. It’s about knowing that you have the power, anywhere and anytime, to create a beautiful ripple effect in the world and can brighten even the darkest of days. Leave a trail of light wherever you go.    You are light. You are bliss. —– Ansley Braided Bliss Owner

The best thing about this tee is the mini message in a bottle that comes with each tee, handwritten by Ansley. I was so excited to open it and see what message I got and I just loved it so much… it totally spoke to me. //  you have as much  p o w e r  over your d r e a m s  as you do with your fears. So why let your fears take the lead. Go forth, fly FREE!

Oh, heyyyyyy…

So, I just was apart of an awesome collaboration to help kick off the raddest new t-shirt line called Black Salt Clothing Company. And I am a fan. Just saying.
The eyes behind this shop are just the sweetest and they are genius. They reached out to some of their favorite artists on Instagram who are amaze by the way, to help in some of the designs for their tees. Pretty cool right! I just love all of them and I know you will too! The tee that I am wearing for this look is designed by Black Salt, but stay put for the rest of the series and check out the art on these tees.  I have some more fun looks coming your way! Oh,  and I can not forget to mention my blogger friend See.Dani.Style that I finally got to meet at the shoot! It was so fun to chat with her in person and to snap some pictures, instead of having a virtual friendship over the past year in little boxes…. loved this so.

For this look, I am just loving these fun little flamingo socks by Woven Pear.  You must check out all the cuteness they’ve got going on over there.  Go support these two shops. They both don’t disappoint… oh and the best news you can grab a tee for 10% off with code BROOKE10…

|Workout cuteeee|

So I am that girl who wears my old clothes and never buys new cute workout clothes much… I hate spending money on that, I’d rather buy clothes but my thoughts on that have totally changed once I came across Albion Fit, their workout clothes ARE clothes! 🙂  Seriously. These leggings. you guys. are really everything….I have been living in them lately. They are made from a premium fabric and are SO comfy and so cute and can be worn to the gym or out! I have dressed them up and I have also dressed them down to lounge in to be comfy but still wanting to be kinda cute.. you know those days?? This baseball tee is perfect for the gym too as well as part of an outfit. I totally get buying cute workout clothes that you can use for workout and also for a day outfit!! So many ways to wear their clothes!

Check them out guys. They have the cutest stuff and have so much to choose from! I want it all!!!

xoxo,

Brooke

Meet Ashley. She is the winner from the giveaway I hosted on my Instagram a few weeks ago where she won 2 style boards. One her look, a #Uboard with my twist on it and then one board of my picks, #BrookePicks. I had so much fun doing this for Ashley! After asking her some questions I definelty had a good vision of where I wanted to go with this. I made sure to include pieces that could be mismatched into many different looks that are edgy, yet practical for everyday. She is a hairdresser, so I wanted to give her some looks that are still stylish, but professional for her career! I really hope she likes it! Ashley was so easy to style. I mean c’mon look at her!
1. What is your style in your words?

If you could blend relaxed/beachy/boho/biker chic.. I feel like you would get my dream closet.. im working at it! so random.. but I’m okay with the randomness.

2. What kind of outfits are you looking for?

I need more outfits for work! any color/style.. as long as I can move my arms, while I do hair.

3. Where do you shop? 

I typically shop at F21, Royalie (boutique in Oceanside), Surf Ride, Captain’s Helm (consignment store in Oside), sometimes nordies/rack/brass plum..there are a few boutiques in Carlsbad Village that I love.. The Beat/ Blues&Shoes.. but I’ve always got my eyes open, anywhere I go. (I’ve found a lot of good stuff at Target, The Closet, Marshall’s/TJmaxx🙈)..

4. What is your spending limit for each board? 

Part time mama, on a budget; would love to keep it under a $100 (if possible!!)

5. What are things you won’t wear? 

I don’t like to wear anything that is uncomfortable or clingy.

6. What are pieces you find yourself always wearing? 

I always have on at least one of the following: cut off shorts, kimono, ankle booties, loose/off the shoulder tops, flannels, pleather leggings, baseball tees. I found a pair of the leopard slip ons, that I love🙌 .. Converse/Vans shoes. pieces that can be dressed up/down and/or can be worn with anything.

7. Are you risky with your style?

Not so risky.. but open to options! I need help! I want a fun style!

8. Is there something you really want to see on your boards? 

I wanna see stuff I like, with your fun twist on it!

9. Anything else you’d love for me to know??

I typically stick with solid colors (because it’s safe); and because of all my tattoos, I don’t want to feel like I have “too much going on”.. too busy. although, I love simple floral (mixed with something edgy, so it’s not too “soft/pretty/girly”), leopard print, and (most) thin stripes! I’m looking to go a little outta my comfort zone here! I’m trying to break away from being too plain. I feel like I just need a few fun pieces to spruce up my existing items.
I’m the type that needs a friend to be like “TRY THIS ON!” and I don’t think it looks good, even on a hanger.. but then end up falling in love with it in the dressing room.

So with Ashley, I felt she can totally rock the mismatch wear that I love. I also know that she likes solid tops so I made sure to include that and also add a little bit more color into her wardrobe. I am also a HUGE fan of color! Like she said she likes to play it safe, but I soooooo think she does NOT need to! 🙂

I also wanted to try to keep each board under $100 each and I wanted to find some stuff at some of her favorite shops as well. With these boards, Ashley has the options to buy some or buy all, but the items can be made into different looks when put together. My best advice…. Don’t be afraid to mix patterns together. It adds so much to an outfit and can give it that edgy fun look!

P.S.… As  I am working on this post, Caprice is pointing to everything and saying, “Oh cute! That looks like you Mom!”….. I think that’s a good sign if my 4 year old likes it!!!!

I’d love to style you too…. Contact me so we can chat!

Muahhhh…..

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

Brooke
