Hi! I’m Andrea, wife to one, mother to 3, and one lover of style. Nice to meet you.
They say you’re supposed to write about what you know, and so began this blog. I’ve spent all of my professional life working in the fashion industry, carving out a successful career for myself at several high end clothing companies. But after years of traveling and long hours, I decided to leave that world behind for a while and focus my energy on another passion, my family. While I sorely miss that other life, I know my kids won’t be this young for long.
I share the things I love most about fashion and style here on this blog; daily outfits, DIY projects, things that inspire me, and people in the industry that I find interesting and influential. My family who are my world make an appearance here every now and then too. I believe fashion should be approachable and fun, not complicated and intimidating. I believe nail polish is an important part of any look, and a great pair of shoes goes a long way. I also believe in the power of french fries, wine and good music. Oh, and of course a good sense of humor, which my husband has in spades.
I recently started a clean eating journey for no other reason than to feel better and feed my family more nutritious meals. It all started with Gwyneth’s book, which led to the creation of the Gwyneth Made Me Do It Instagram account, which then led to my Babble column with the same title, where I share inspiration and a realistic look at clean eating as a family of 5. You can read all the Gwyneth related posts on my blog here, and read my Babble column here.
Thanks for reading. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it.
