Where I’m based: Gainesville, Fla.
How long I’ve been blogging: I started blogging almost two years ago, as a way to channel some of the creative energy that was building up after I transitioned into stay-at-home mommy-hood. Although I’ve been blogging the whole time, I’ve only been posting consistently (every week day) since January. It’s become somewhat of a full-time job and I’m loving every moment!
Blog/business basics: Chelsea & The City is my little corner of the internet in which I share everything that strikes my fancy. You can expect a few personal style posts, some interior inspiration and a whole lot of shopping sources!
What do you enjoy most about blogging? The freedom to explore my creative side. I love the process of finding inspiration, getting immersed in an idea and seeing it come to life on the blog! I also adore the community of stylish ladies (and a few gentlemen) that I’ve found.
Guilty pleasure: My two year old, Lorelai, has the most delicious and infectious laugh! I could listen to her giggle all day.
Last thing I bought: A pair of Hunter rain boots. We’re in the middle of a three-week-long thunderstorm and my cute boots are the perfect excuse to go puddle jumping!
How would you define your style? Southern preppy with a downtown edge.
What does every girl have to have in her closet? The perfect striped tee, lots of chambray and a statement heel.
If you could only wear one outfit for the rest of your life what would it be? I could live in a soft striped pencil skirt, a denim button-up and my favorite mirrored heels as long as I could switch up my arm party every day!
What does the tattoo on your arm say? It says, “A prayer for the wild at heart kept in cages”. It’s from the Tennessee Williams play, Stairs to the Roof, and reminds me that life is more than work, sleep, repeat. Whenever I glance down at it, I’m inspired to find the wonderful wild in each day.
