Who doesn’t love a skirt that you can twirl around in?! This skirt is so fun and representative of its designer, Betsey Johnson. Betsey Johnson was one of my favorite designers when I was younger because everything she makes is so crazy fun and unique, and I was in my wear anything but the ordinary stage – haha! I still love how bold her pieces are, so when I found this gem while thrifting I definitely scored. To finish the look I paired it with a simple black wrap top and some strappy heels.
I’ve been loving all these 90s trends, especially since I saved a lot of my favorite 90s pieces from my childhood and I have my Mother’s closet to raid! This lilac silk tank top was a piece from my Mom’s wardrobe and it paired perfectly with a simple white tee underneath. This tank also has the most amazing straps in the back which gives it a fun and unique touch.
We’ve been loving the “jungalow” style of decorating lately, so when we saw this plant wall at Stacks Espresso Bar, we knew we had to share it with our fellow plant lovers. Not much is better than sipping a latte under a dreamy wall of hanging plants.
I have been really into long vests lately, so when I found this really cool denim Tommy Hilfiger one at the thrift store – I scored big time! I tap out at 5’1″ so these long vests add an illusion of height and give a simple outfit a sophisticated twist. I wanted the vest to shine in this outfit so I wore all black everythang and paired it with a pair of mules (I think I got from Target) that I’ve had for forever.
Loose button downs are my favorite thing to wear for a casual weekend look. This one I actually took from my Mom’s closet. I’ve talked about my Mom’s wardrobe before and all the 90’s treasures it holds. This top was definitely one of those treasures. I love the vibrant magenta color it has and the embroidered flower detailing makes it even more perfect to wear during the first days of spring.
We’re all about the laid back sporty look for running around doing errands. We also just like to get away with essentially wearing baggy tees and sweatpants in public. My look consists of an extra baggy athletic tee, a vintage jean jacket, leggings, wedge sneaks and a white baseball cap. I got the tee out thrifting and the jacket is from my lovely sis’s closet. If you’re looking to be a little more intentional with your shopping habits we’d definitely recommend thrift, consignment and vintage shops. We always come across the best finds for a fraction of the cost, you’re reducing waste and most use their profits to benefit amazing causes.
This post features two items I’ve had my eyes on for awhile, this Walk in Love long sleeve tee and my Jack Rogers booties. I just loved the saying on this tee because I think it is so important to go after your crazy dreams and believe you are walking and living in them every day. It also reminds me to stay grateful for the love I have around me and the things we’re so blessed to call basics like shelter, food, clothes and safety. If we’re given the opportunity and are able to alleviate other’s burdens in this manner, I’d say we’re living the dream!

: Tell us a little about yourself.
: My name is Olivia Broom and I live in a little beach town on the East Coast of Florida. I work full time as a graphics designer, and my entire life revolves around being creative. I love to play guitar, paint, travel in my tiny camper and come up with new designs for my AubbieRoe ankle cuffs and leather bracelets.
: You make beautiful ankle cuffs and bracelets through your business Aubbie Roe. How did you get started?
: I am a big fan of Emonk Ibiza’s boots and sandals. I saw them on Instagram, and instantly wanted a pair, but they were way out of my price range. I thought I could probably make something similar myself, so I went out and bought a sewing machine and made a couple pair of what has become the AubbieRoe ankle cuffs. I really enjoyed making them, and everyone loved them, so I started selling them at local markets, craft fairs and online through Etsy, Facebook and Instagram.
While in the 12South area of Nashville, (travel posts coming soon!) I found this great chunky sweater for $10! The boutique I got it from, Vinnie Louise, had literally just put up the sale sign as we were walking by, so we got first dibs on all their unique merchandise. This sweater was actually from their girl’s line. If you’re petite you can sometimes get away with purchasing from the larger girl’s sizes, so the sleeves were a little short, but I like quarter length sleeves anyway!
There is nothing better than a cozy slouchy sweater in the fall! If you’re searching for that perfectly loose fall shirt, you don’t have to look so far. I usually just find a style of shirt I like and then go up two or three sizes! I did just that with this shirt. I liked the style, but the only size left was a few sizes up than what I typically wear. I bought it anyways and now it’s one of my go-to shirts for a lazy weekend or when you’re going out to eat, haha!
