Street Style: Brooke Lombardi

If you know Brooke Lombardi, there’s no doubt you adore her. And if you don’t know her, there is a very good chance you recognize her as the super cute woman leading a dog (or a few!) on strolls through Old Town as part of her popular dog-walking business. A soulful and wise mommy, Brooke is super dedicated to her two young boys. The boys are avid swimmers, which is great for Brooke, who has recently taken up Masters swimming herself!

Brooke is wearing a t-shirt, Insider Crop Step Chew jeans by Mother, and earrings by Lizzie Fortunato, all from The Hive,
and Golden Goose sneakers, available at The Shoe Hive.
