About Me and This Blog

I am a new Seattleite, by way of Los Angeles, who is still trying to define her style. This is my personal style journal – please join me for this daily adventure!

Why is this blog named Design & Style?
I will blog about two main things: my craft projects (design) and my outfits (style). Along the way, I hope to teach you some things and teach myself things too!

How would you define your style?
My style isĀ feminine and classic. I like trends, but only in modern. I’m a lover of bright colors, polka dota and most things striped.

Where do you usually shop?
My favorite stores are Anthropologie, J.Crew and Zara, though I also shop at other stores as well. I love shopping in stores and watching for deals online.

Who are you?
I blog anonymously, just as I do on my food blog. I am an almost 30-something woman living in Seattle, with an ah-maz-ing husband, Dub-C and wonderful support friends and family.

How can I contact you?
Yes, please! I love hearing from my readers. You can comment to a specific post, email me at or follow me on Twitter.

Happy Reading!

    I just googled “hi-low skirt” this morning to find out how to style a new skirt I just got from Target….up popped your blog–and a picture of the SAME coral high low skirt from target, it’s fate! Love your blog and your style. I am originally from Seattle and also struggle with the whole casual thing most people have going on. But it’s a wonderful city and I’m glad to see someone contributing to Seattle city fashion! I’m adding this site to my bookmarks right away :)

      Thanks so much Shaina for your support! I’m so glad you understand my pain – it’s so easy to settle into being comfy, but I’m hoping this blog helps me be creative and share it with you. Happy reading and hope to hear from you again soon!
