Beachy Keen dos.

  
Hey!! So as you know I love me some Printed Palette and my friends over there sure do rock. Obviously had to have this packed when we went beach camping this summer. Stay tuned for another Beachy Keen dress that I’ll be shooting soon…. School starts Monday and that also means my baby starts kinder… seriously how did this happen. I hate it…… life with kids is so amazing and yet so sad at the exact same time. Literally can’t describe just.how.fast.it all goes……

Pink & Lace


so so incredibly sad about this lace kimono that I’ve had forever from Nordstrom. Before this shoot I wore it the week before at my sister’s party and had a little too much fun drinking wine and busting a hump on the dance floor of you know what I mean 😂😂 which equals for what you ask… Well the obvious red wine spillage on my beauty. And the absolute worst is I left it sitting on the washer to TAKE to the dry cleaners and Ryan being the helpful husband he is.. well what do you think he did?? Yep. Washed that shit. And came out destroyed. I almost cried. I think the worst is I was just talking about this little number at the party and how I love it so and how it was a gem to find. Yes I’m sick over a piece of clothing. Am I normal? Let’s hope so.

Overalls

  
Hey!

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…

Chat soon,

The Blogger Collaborative Part 2


Hey lovessss…..

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

The Blogger Collaborative

  
Hiiiiiiii……

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…

Hey guys!

It’s been some time, I know. I seriously have not taken time to do any blog posts… Uhhhhhh. Work and life always seem to get in the way, but I am counting down the days until summer…. 5 weeks. 24 days to be exact.

Here is another look from Be Still’s  new spring line. If your a wifey, do your hubby a favor and pick one up.. He’ll be proud for sure.

Be Still Clothing Company has always been one of my favorite shops once I began following them on Instagram forever ago.  I’m in love with the reason behind the tees that Marissa, owner of the shop has started and not to mention she has to be the sweetest thing. I have yet to meet her, but I see that soon in our future… When she asked Lauren and I to shoot her new Spring line, I was totally excited! Here is one look from her Spring line. I love. Check them out!

“Be Still Clothing Company was started in December 2013 as a means to bring hope to the hopeless, strength to the weak, and comfort to those in pain. Exodus 14:14 says “The Lord will fight for you; you need only to BE STILL,” and Psalm 46:10 says “BE STILL and know that I am God.” These verses have been a source of strength to so many in their time of need. Be Still Clothing Company wants to share this truth with others through our clothing in a fashionable and comfortable way.”- Be Still Clothing
