Inspiration | May 10th, 2015

Hello, folks! I hope y'all have had a wonderful beginning to June. A lot has happened recently at GARB - we have just begun to fill store orders around the nation! I'll keep you posted on when and where you might be getting GARB in your 'hood!

That being said, when things begin to get busy, I find it is most important to reflect a little on where things started. This past week I had the opportunity to partner with The Impeccable Pig for Spoleto USA. This precious boutique just so happens to be the first place I EVER worked in retail, so it is especially near and dear to my heart. I had a wonderful time hanging out with the staff and talking to visitors about the brand. Ladies, thank you so much for having me! 

I've put together a little photo essay of some highlights of the week. As always, feel free to reach out to me over email (garb.by.gumbo@gmail.com) if you would like to work together on a project or do a trunk show! I would love to talk to you!

Have a wonderful week, people! Let's make it really "rock"!

One of my favorite quotes of all time (with the backdrop of a GARB pattern of course!) If you are a creative and aren't feeling the creativity currently flowing, pull this quote out and repeat it to yourself. You got this. Take a nap and reboot. You won't ever run out of creativity!

A little fuzzy, but took this image while babysitting in downtown last week. Beyond adoring this color combo for June! Talk about inspiration... I mean! Good Lord!

Great time grabbing drinks at CHS 492 King. Such a neat outdoor space, and I'm majorly crushing on these twinkle lights.

When running a small business, organization is UBER important. So excited to find this awesome tortoise shell file folder from, you guess it, Target! Target seriously is my weakness in terms of office supplies. Pointed toe flats are from Target as well.
