I love dresses, but it’s very difficult to find dresses that I like. My usual go to stores to hunt for a dress are Alice and Olivia, Club Monaco, Nordstrom, and Anthropologie. Today, I decided to check out http://www.freepeople.com and found dress heaven! They have so many beautiful dresses and it took me close to an hour to get through them all. I picked my 9 favorite dresses above which would all be perfect for Valentine’s day. The fact that I had to limit myself to 9 favorites speaks volumes for their selection, because it is rare for me to find just 1 that I like. Happy Valentine’s day shopping!
Around this time every winter I begin to heavily fantasize about summer. While browsing through my photo roll searching for anything summer related I came across this gem! My Nanna is one of the most amazing people I have ever known. Her ability to always be so positive, poised and full of wisdom surpasses my understanding. I love this picture because I feel all of these qualities of hers coming through the photo, but what I also notice is how fabulous and timeless her style is. All of these items I would wear today. If only she still has those shoes! I love you Nanna, today you are the inspiration for my blog, but you are inspiration in my life everyday and have shaped me in to the woman I am today.

Browsing through some blogs today and came across Krystalschlegel.com – which I’m now in love with by the way, but most importantly, I saw this coat and instantaneously fell in love. Ironically, when I looked to see who the designer was, it was my draping professor from FIT, George Simonton! I have known since I have met him that he is a trend setter in the coat industry, but this coat is perfection. I was blessed to be able to learn the art of draping from him and hope to be able to apply those skills in the future, but for now, I MUST find this coat in black. Thank you for the find Krystal Schlegel and thank you for making this beauty professor Simonton. I will most likely dream about this coat every night until I find one to purchase in black!

I started following showmeyourmumu.com on Instagram a while back. I discovered this clothing line through following Ali Fedotowsky, who was wearing a beautiful dress of theirs on the beach. Their clothes represent everything I love about summer. This look is beautiful! I can’t wait until the weather warms enough for me to show my legs outside again.
I am an avid Pinterest user. I turn to it for inspiration in all aspects of my life, whether it be needing to plan an outfit, the next paleo meal, or just to redirect my energy on positive thoughts. You can visit my pinterest site from the home page of this blog, or via this link http://www.pinterest.com/brooklynheitz. You can learn much about my personality just from browsing these boards. I have created a board just for this site, by no other name than Brooklyn Heitz. This board is where the images above can be found, with links to the sites they originated from. This board is my pure inspiration for this blog, and the future endeavors that will spin from it.
