summer trends

I have a of love-hate relationship with this summer kimono trend (already documented here). Part of me shakes my head when I google kimono and the first thing that comes up is a link to shop at Forever21 rather than any article about the Japanese garment. But the other part of me loves how light and perfect they are for summer and how easily they can be dressed up or down. I guess I just have to fully own that I have fallen victim to this summer trend.  *shrugs shoulders*

Let's move on. Note: somewhere my 8th grade English teachers is falling over dead after reading my transitions. 

One of the things I love about blogging is discovering new shops and of course, the bloggers behind them. Brooke and her shop Linbrooke Designs is no exception. Brooke loves what she does and pours her heart into her shop which is so clear after spending just 5 minutes reading her blog. Isn't that the type of small business you want to shop with? I'm wearing this turquoise bracelet in these pictures and I've been wearing it almost daily to add a little pop of color to my normal bracelet stack. I can't wait to see her make more state bracelets (fingers crossed for California!) and I love me some chunky stacking bracelets like this white and gold magnesite bracelet.  Brooke's bracelets are already super reasonably priced but she is offering readers 10% off with the code DASHGOLD10! Get to shopping, friends!
