6 new (to me) brands i’m loving

Happy Monday, friends! I don’t know about anyone else, but last week was quite the doozy, topped off by a full weekend of call for Andrew. Womp womp.

One very happy and fun moment did occur, though. My second Instagram account, Would Rather Be Wearing, hit 10,000+ followers!

I’ve had so much fun putting these daily outfit collages together, and in the process have stumbled across some awesome new-to-me brands. Today, I thought it would be fun to share these finds with you!


Ink + Alloy


I have always loved bold, colorful beaded accessories, and came across Ink + Alloy while looking for some turquoise bracelets to compliment this look. Jackpot, y’all! This accessory line carries a fabulous assortment of colorful creations, from beaded bangles to vibrant earrings to unique hair accessories, all at accessible price points. I just saw they’re having a summer sale, too! Use code SUMMER20 for 20% off site-wide.





Instagram ads work again! I’ve been seeing quite a few ads for Olivela over the past few weeks, and finally decided to swipe up and check it out. Wow, y’all. Talk about an incredible destination for stunning, high-end pieces! While I personally prefer wallet-friendly buys to more exclusive price points, I do love scrolling through to glean inspiration. I think you’ll enjoy this lovely assortment, too! P.S. If you sign up for their mailing and text list, you’ll receive a 20% off code.




Pure Greek Sandals


Who knew Etsy had such an incredible assortment of shoes? I came across Pure Greek Sandals this past weekend and was instantly wow’d at the beautiful, simplistic, unique designs. This brand is based in Athens, Greece and uses genuine leather to construct their beautiful sandals. For the handmade quality, I think the pricepoint (~$100) is reasonable. I’m especially in love with this pair!




Lenok Linen


I saw this darling linen pajama set on the feed of @Kathleen_Barnes, and you can bet I swiped up. What I found? A gorgeous assortment of all things linen! The perfect mix of chic and casual, this collection of custom-made linen wear is so cute and so well priced. I have my eye on this set, after seeing it on Kathleen, and this dress! Check out the expansive array of home goods as well.






While searching for the perfect sunhat, I came across Artesano… a Miami-based line of beautifully handmade hats crafted by artisans in Ecuador. I instantly fell in love with the chic, timeless and colorful designs and ended up ordering the Ibiza Wide Brim style during a mid-summer sale! It just arrived and I am thrilled. While these pieces are a splurge, the handmade and timeless quality make them items I think will never go out of style. You can take 30% off site-wide with the code EOS!

Classic Prep Monograms


All the sparkle, please! These gorgeous custom beaded clutches are giving me so much glam-spiration in this season of endless loungewear. I love all of the color, font and monogram options this etsy shop offers. The question is, which would you choose? Also, how adorable would this be for a bride?!




As I sit here typing in my sweaty workout clothes, this fun list is giving me just the Monday inspiration I need. I hope it does the same for you! And as always, I would love to hear about any new brands you’re loving!

Love from the Sunshine State,
