Hey there! I’m Brandi, a style-loving, adventure-seeking, 30-something working girl, always scouting the best buys.
My intention for my blog is a place to come to find style inspiration and trendy, affordable pieces for the everyday girl that isn’t looking to spend their entire paycheck on the newest trend-save that for another bottle of wine or a fun trip! I focus on key staple items and how to style those with some of the trendier, less expensive options that quickly and constantly are changing. I would describe my style as feminine with a little edge.
Shopping and getting dressed is so fun for me, especially when it’s for an event, but even when it’s for something as simple as dinner or a concert or sitting on a patio sipping wine with friends. Any excuse to put on something you feel good in, ya know This is truly my personal, passionate, creative outlet to showcase who I am and always have been, as well as doing what I’ve always done—helping friends and family make better style choices. I hope that at least one person a day that visits my blog can resonate with me and that I can help YOU take the guesswork out about throwing outfits together each day. I want to have every gal feeling confident and in style!
A little more about who I am: I was born and raised in Louisiana, went to college at LSU, but graduated from McNeese State University with a degree in Fashion Merchandising in 2008 (so fitting!). I’ve lived in the South for most of my life (Alabama, Florida, SW Louisiana, and SE Louisiana), and also a short stint in Colorado (Northern and Southeastern which is in fact not Colorado-ish at all) where I met my boyfriend of over 5 years.
We packed up from Colorado (not the pretty part) in the fall of 2012 and moved back home for about 6 months or so before moving to Houston, TX for a couple of years. We are still in the South.
I remember being as young as elementary school age obsessing over clothes, and being very conscious of being the cutest 4th grader at my school. Let’s just say that’s never stopped. I often joke with my Mom and sisters that they all got the creative genes when it comes to things like interior design and decorating, drawing, handwriting, literally every realm of being creative! And I did not get any of that, but instead, the knack for throwing outfits together and helping to dress those around me. For that, I am A-ok with it!
My favorite place to be is at the beach-all day, everyday. I also have a deep desire to see new places. I truly believe it enhances our lives. I only drink red wine–Napa Valley Cabernet from 2012, or champagne (not sweet), or rosé! I am in love with my pup, Tuck, that is a Morkie, and would love to own a million fluffy white dogs, under 5 lbs. It’s an obsession. I have a sweet tooth, but buckle down with my food choices 6 days a week, while allowing an all-out cheat day on Sundays. I’ve been doing this for years, and I don’t see it stopping anytime soon!
I hope that you feel you’ve gotten to know me better here, and I’m excited to share a piece of me and my passionate spirit with you!
