​A new gem has popped up on the east side to help you spruce up for spring. Austin-based online boutique Aro has expanded its presence with a pop-up storefront in Miranda Bennett Studio (the former Rosewood Collective).
 
Taking over the space formerly inhabited by Olive (which has moved to 1200 E. 11th St.), Aro features jewelry and lifestyle pieces from a badass lineup of designers from around the country — and the world.
 
Owner Leslie Hernandez's favorite lines include Gillan Stenhard (look for the fist bracelets), Lumo (think California free-spirit style), and Karen Hsang (New York-based designer who originally hails from Austin). 
 
When it comes to spring trends, be on the lookout for jacket earrings and clusters of mixed stones, says Hernandez.
 
The Aro pop-up shop runs through the end of April at 1223 Rosewood Ave. Take a peek at this little gem in our slideshow.
