My Fave Summer Outfit // Butterfly Tank & Mom Jeans

Long time no blog post! (especially not an outfit post - I haven't done one of those since March haha). I haven't been doing much because of the pandemic, but the other day my friend Eleanor and I took some fun pictures on top of a parking garage so I thought I'd share those with y'all!

Depop Vs. Poshmark: Which Clothing Resale Platform Is Better?

During the past few months of quarantine, I've been taking advantage of all this free time and working hard to sell my clothes. I've made quite a good bit of cash from selling my old clothes, and I think all my hard work has paid off! I've had Poshmark for a couple years, but I just downloaded Depop at the beginning of April, so I thought it would be interesting to compare the two clothing resale apps and share my pros and cons for each one.


ALSO!! Don't forget to follow me on Poshmark @brookebutler9 and Depop @brookekbutler... and you can use the code BROOKEBUTLER9 for $10 off your first Poshmark purchase!

&&& don't forget to check out my blog post on the best Poshmark tips + tricks (most of these apply for Depop too!)

I think the biggest factor in determining which platform to join is the type of clothes you're selling. I've observed that Depop is more for trendy and vintage items (think a Princess Polly top or a unique vintage t-shirt) while Poshmark is a better place to sell preppier clothes (think Lilly Pulitzer dresses or Lauren James t-shirts). I'm selling a mix of both styles and I've definitely had more luck with the trendier things on Depop and the preppier things on Poshmark. That's not to say you can't find cute, trendy clothes on Poshmark, because let's be real--I spend wayyyy too much money on there haha.

Currently Vol. 27

Happy Saturday! Today I'm sharing some of the things I've been loving during quarantine... grab a cup of coffee and enjoy!

I am officially done with junior year, which is crazy. Time goes by so fast and I can't believe my third year of high school is already over. I'm nervous that this pandemic is going to disrupt my senior year, but that's a long way away so I'm just going to focus on having a fun summer even though it's going to look pretty different!


Eating... my family got Chick-Fil-A the other night, which was the first takeout meal we've gotten since March! I've also been baking so much... stay tuned for an Eats Lately post soon!

Recreating Pinterest Outfits Vol. 1

Fran Acciardo is one of my favorite bloggers and I was recently inspired by this post she made where she recreated popular Pinterest outfits! I thought this would be so fun to do so I picked some pictures I've pinned recently and decided to find some similar pieces! Happy shopping!




10 Podcasts I Love

Every morning, the first thing I do when I wake up is grab my AirPods and put on a podcast. Even before I get my coffee, I'm listening to a podcast! Today I'm sharing 10 podcasts I listen to regularly... enjoy!


Call Me Candid // Hosted by influencer Haley Pham and business owner Lilly Ann, this podcast dives into a lot of behind-the-scenes of being an influencer and business owner. I think this topic is so interesting to learn about, and I love starting my Monday with a new Call Me Candid episode!

Gen Z Girl // In this podcast, college YouTuber Abby Asselin covers all aspects of college life: study tips, productive habits, finances, time management, social life, and much more! I love how raw and authentic she is.

Life Lately Vol. 61

It's been a WHILE since I've shared one of these posts, because for obvious reasons, I haven't been doing much of anything. The days go by so fast but I don't know how that's even possible because it feels like I never do anything besides study for my upcoming AP exams, go on runs, bake food, watch TV, and sleep. 

 One of the highlights of the past couple weeks is when my friend Eleanor took me for a ride in her Jeep with the doors down! We've both been quarantining so our parents let us see each other and it was so good to see her! You truly haven't lived until you've driven through your city in a Jeep with no doors while blaring 2000's throwback music!

The BEST Swimsuits For Summer 2020 (All Under $30!)

It's crazy to me that in a few short weeks summer will be here. Obviously, this summer is going to look a lot different than we were expecting, but I figured everyone could still use a couple new swimsuits so today I'm sharing some of my favorite swimwear picks. As always, all of these swimsuits are super affordable :)



Which one is your favorite? I'm head over heels for the butterfly one and the lilac one!
