What inspired you to start blogging?
I have a degree in English Language and Literature, I’ve always had a passion for writing. Another love of mine is style and fashion. My inspiration were my passions, blogging was a way of tying them together.
On your site it is written that your blog is a style guide for the modern mom. How so? Can you tell us more about why moms?
I talk a lot about, “the modern mom” or “the woman on the go” but who is she?
It’s the woman that does it all! She goes to the sports games, takes the kids apple picking, she’s a party planner, a side hustler, works a job (or two), keeps a social, romantic and exercise life!
What does she need? She needs to look and feel good but she has to do it as fast as grabbing a Big-Mac at the McDonald’s drive thru window.
Moms are so busy, and so many times I see mothers with kids not looking great. They wear leggings and oversized t shirts, they don’t put any makeup on and they look tired. They don’t know how easy it to look polished. I wanted to help those moms, I wanted them to have a place where they can find easy style tips to look polished on the fly.
What style do moms look for?
The modern mom will keep her closet staples but will add trends for an updated look.

Who inspires your style the most?
I don’t turn to one person for an inspiration, I am inspired daily by different people but If I had to pick one person I would say it’s my fiancé. His style is effortless and always on point. He’s helped my style evolve into something a lot edgier than it used to be, and I love it.
