So I have to admit, I suck big time.. I mentioned a few posts back that I was going to REALLY try and post more especially weekly.. well as you can clearly see.. um I failed. MAN it is hardddd. I honestly thought being on summer break I’d make more time.. nope, we have been so busy! I have checked off a lot of my summer to do list actually which is amazing in itself… one big one was getting a better personalized blog.. and I AM working on that. So hopefully soon there will be a much prettier one to look at. Oh, and another huge to do of mine was cleaning out my closet and selling it on Instagram. I created a new account, follow me to see when I post over on @brooklynninspired_closet to get some of my clothes!
Ok ,so on to this look. I am seriously a fan of overalls. I only own 2 pairs of the shortalls but I am itching for some cute pant ones. They are so cute with booties, gladiators, converse slash vans…

So here are some pictures from my day with the sweetest duo The Blogger Collaborative. If you read the first post from this shoot, you will get the jist behind this shoot.
Like I had mentioned before, I was so happy that they reached out to me to be apart of this experience. Having a blog opens up so many doors and friendships that I never really thought would come from having a little blog such as mine, I am really such an amateur at it and am still learning how it all works and I think I have been blogging for almost 2 years???? hmmmmmm, well I should know this.. kinda of like how I don’t really know my very beloved dog Dynasty’s birthday.. I estimate.. he was adopted and they told us he was possibly 3 months old at the time.. and yeah, I know it was December butttttt I still need to do the math on what year that was many moons ago!!!
Sorry totally off track, I know.. insert apology here….
This day was one of those experiences for sure where I found myself grateful for having thrown myself out there into the instagram/blogging world because of all the relationships that I have formed… I was so scared starting out my blog not knowing what real good could come from sharing just little old me to others and who the heck could really give a lick, but something as fun as this being around like minded strangers who quickly turned into new friends was very refreshing… so if you are in the market for trying something new… I’d say well duhhh put your darn self out there women and goooooo…
peace out.. xxxx Brooke

Je Suis Prete : I Am Ready
Are you ready? For what?…. you maybe thinking or wondering….. well these words can mean so much to so many of us. It can mean something different depending on how you think or feel when you read this…. Be Still Clothing Company printed this phrase on their tees to remind others of how we can be ready for it all.
To me it’s a reminder to always be ready for new experiences, any new obstacles that God puts in front of me, being ready to learn and ready to grow….. Je Suis Prete…

SO…… like I said in my last post which was the other day… wink wink are you proud… that I wanted to get better at weekly posting. I also want to work on sharing more about me on my blog.
If you follow along on Instagram, where I have my own personal account @brooklynnbrum which is just basically Caprice and Stella and then @brooklynninspired where I share quick and quite more frequent fashion and my life as well. I am committing today to also show more of this here on the blog diggity blog!
I’ll start by sharing about this amazing opportunity I had to attend an event hosted by The Blogger Collaborative this weekend. Jacqueline and Jake are a husband and wife ninja duo with a photography business JakeFabrucius where they created this new company to bring brands, vendors, and bloggers for editorial photo shoots. Super rad idea for so many reasons.
I was asked along with 13 other LA/SD/OC fashion bloggers to come hang for the day in a studio in OC, Great Over Good (which ohhhh my is the cutest place) to have a super fun day getting glammed up by Swell Beauty, which by the way they are the sweetest things, (oh heyyyy Dee) to shoot a Vogue inspired photo shoot! The Stylist LA dressed us and omg you guys this is a rental dress company that seriously has the BESTTTTTTT selection. You will die and our shoes and jewelry was sponsored by Nina Shoes.
It was so nice to meet other bloggers and have a chance to get to know the real them. I also loved getting advice and sharing funny blogging stories with this girls! I’ll be posting more pics when I get them. These are just some that took there.
Oh, and The Blogger Collaborative sure knows how to throw an event, from the donuts and coffee right down to the Swag bags…. I was alllllll like…. this is legit!
to be continued…
So I am making a commitment today to try to be better at posting more through out the week. So here’s to trying to stay organized and follow through. If I had a cocktail in hand I’d cheers you. Wish me luck 😁😁 #theresnotenoughhoursinaday
Oh… and this tee is from my girl at Enjoy Essential. I remember blogging about one of her first tees a year or so ago and it’s crazy to see how much this little shop has become!! So proud of all you hard working shop owners chasing down your dream… You go girls. Or boys too I might add❤️
Have a great week!
