Hi, (blog) World. Introducing…me!
Bonjour, bijou! This is it. The little kick-off to my blogging journey. Honestly, I’ve been dreaming up this little blog baby on and off for many years, but those who have followed me on Instagram over the last year are truly responsible for inspiring me to just go for it. I’m not gonna lie. It’s a bit of an intimidating blogging world out there with so many truly creative people expressing unique and beautiful words, ideas and photos every day. Am I right?! So, here’s what I have promised myself and will offer to you as a reader: I promise to be true to my personality and who I am at my core, and in the end, I hope my thoughts pique your interest just enough for you to continue to tune in as I serve up my take on style, from fashion and beauty to home décor and super cute kids’ stuff. Here’s why I can passionately and confidently speak to these topics. Yours truly loves to shop. Window shopping, online shopping, watching someone else shop…I don’t discriminate. That said, I rarely pay full price for anything so I’ll be sharing my go-to sales and shopping tips, as well as thrifting finds (both here and abroad for all you wanderlust’s), subscription box reviews and some glam giveaways sprinkled in.
So in a nutshell, that’s an idea of what you can expect to read on The Style Du Jour. And, for those of you just stumbling across this blog, here’s a little bit more about me and what influences my personal take on style today.
Day Job: I’m a registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN). Translation = I was a science nerd in college AND (most importantly) I LOVE FOOD. For eight years I worked in PR helping food companies, but for the last year I’ve focused on my two most important clients full-time, Teddy (3) and Sloane (1).
How I Describe My Style: Casual-Chic, Minimal, European-Flare.
Current Fashion Trend Obsession: High-waisted culotte fringe jeans. Wow. That kind of sounds like a lot going on in one pair of pants, but I predict I’ll be living in these pants this fall.
Recent Thrifting Treasure: Pierre Balmain silk scarf. Picked it up at a vintage shop in Florence while on vacation with my hubby. I have a growing collection of neck scarfs (inherited and purchased) which have become my go-to accessory to quickly give some polish to a simple t-shirt with jeans, hide a bad hair day or accessorize a handbag. You can never have enough!
On-Repeat: My navy bandana from the Dollar Store. It’s been my favorite spring and summer accessory. I love how the simple bandana has been elevated to a glam statement piece this season.
Style Inspiration: My mom. 🙂 She’s got the eye and she knows how to pull it all together, popped collar and all.
That’s all for now. Thanks so much for reading! ‘Til next time!
