Fashion Food Travel

The same, but different.

Weekends are gold to me, and that's what this blog showcases. How I spend my weekends, where I eat, and most importantly, what I wear. Fashion has always been a dear friend of mine, and I can't wait to share my love with you!

When I asked my husband, if you could describe me in one word, what would it be? He answered, "Persistent.".

I guess probably the biggest thing that differentiates me from other bloggers is that I'm an electrical engineer by degree. Most people are surprised to learn that. I graduated from Purdue University in 2013. Getting through engineering school was the hardest thing I have ever done. Point blank. But knowing that I got through it, even when I felt like it was impossible, taught me that I can literally do anything I want if I put my mind to it. Anything. And I 100% believe in that. So that was my day job until I decided I couldn't take it anymore. Being a female engineer in a male-dominated industrial environment is not exactly breeding grounds for good style. But that's not why I left my job; I was incredibly unhappy and kind of felt like I was wasting away. I learned that a solid paycheck does not equate to happiness. So now I work as a stylist at J.Crew and blog in my free time. I'm making a tiny fraction of what I was, but I am much, much happier. Now I just have to see where the future, and a whole lot of hustle, takes me.

The Fun Stuff

You know when you put on a really good outfit and you have a couple glasses of wine and you're just like.....hell yeah, I got this. 

That feeling right there is why I love clothes...and wine! An outfit has the ability to influence your attitude, demeanor, and your feelings toward yourself and others. That's an amazing thing to me. Ultimately, I would die to be a stylist for the twenty to thirty-somethings out there. Men or women. That's my dream. I don't know if/when I'll get there, or if I'll change courses along the way. But if I can help others have that, "hell yeah, I can take on the world" feeling from the outfit they're wearing, then I'll be happy.  

More About Me

I'm newly married to a wonderful man, named Gregory, who takes most of the photos of me on here. He is currently getting his MBA at Purdue, which is why we are still located in this area for now.

I played soccer in college, and it was probably my first love before clothes. I am ultra-competitive and love athletics and being fit!! I currently help coach a high school girls team, and also coach an area club team. I love coaching. It has really helped me define what kind of leader I want to be...and the girls keep me young. They are some of my biggest Instagram supporters, I swear!

Food is my friend. Home girl likes to eat. Greg knows if he can keep me full, he can keep me happy. Smart guy, that one.

Traveling is a passion. I wish I could be one of those bloggers/photographers that just travel the world. Unfortunately, I'm not there yet. Greg and I try to take 3 trips to new cities a year. I think it's a learning thing for us. We are life-long learners and both think it's important to see all that the world has to offer.
