My Casual Style + 10 Things You Didn’t Know About Me

Hi new and faithful readers! Happy Monday! There’s been a ton of new activity on the blog lately so I thought it’d be the perfect time to re-introduce myself by sharing my everyday casual style and 10 things you probably didn’t know about me.

On a day to day basis my casual style includes jeans, a T-shirt and sneakers (these and these have been on rotation lately). I stick to a pretty neutral palette because I know if I’m in a rush I can mix and match without thinking about it too much. If I’m feeling fancy I’ll add a cute jacket and statement shoes. But really I’m all about comfort these days and love putting together effortless looks.

And now for 10 Things You Didn’t Know About Me..

10. I am terrified of centipedes. Just the thought of all those legs creeping and crawling makes me shutter. Ugh!

9. I can recite all the states in alphabetical order. When I was in elementary school I learned a song (if you know the one, high five!) and I never forgot it.

8. Asking me to ride a bike is like asking me to jump off a cliff. Are you crazy?! That has danger written all over it lol.

7. I’m a little hood, I’m a little classy. Self-explanatory.

6. I’m a sap. I’ll cry during a sad commercial at the drop of a dime. And don’t even get me started on movies and T.V. shows! I’m talking to you This Is Us!

5. When I grow up I want to be a dancer. I secretly choreograph routines to songs while I’m driving or taking a shower.

4. I’m a listener not a talker. Tell me all your problems. We’ll figure out a solution together.

3.  I try not to judge a book by its cover.  I really learned that working in retail. Wow can a cover be wrong!

2. I’m drawn to strong, intelligent, successful women. I guess it’s because I was raised by a pretty amazing one. May we know them, may we be them, may we raise them amiright?

1. I started LiveLearnLuxeIt after reading countless blog posts and watching tons of Youtube videos and finally saying, “I can do that too!” I realized I had something to say and wanted to reach like-minded people through writing. I challenge you to go for whatever you’ve been scared to start 😉
