“Style is something each of us already has, all we need to do is find it.” —Diane von Furstenberg
Hello and welcome to my style blogger/instagrammer journey!
My name is Jamie and I’m an 33-year old wife and mama living in Hoboken, New Jersey.
I have a full-time marketing job in New York City and am the mommy to a V. busy one-and-a-half year old little girl, Juliana.
While I feel the idea of “free time” is laughable these these days, starting this space and sharing a part of my life around fashion and lifestyle is a desire I just can’t seem to shake lately.
If you’ve followed me before, you’ll know that this is also not my first foray into blogging. A few years ago I started the blog Pushups, Pasta, & Pinot Grigio where I posted content around food, workouts, my life in general. And I loved it. I LOVED blogging and connecting with you all. Unfortunately, I was at a point in my life where my real job was extremely overwhelming and stressful…and then I got pregnant. And I needed a break.
Okay…so why a style blog now?
My Instagram is filled with style influencers that I use as constant resources when I’m planning my own outfits to upcoming occasions and just day-to-day outfit inspo. I greatly admire their dedication to their brand and the content they share. But I keep coming back to the thought… I THINK I can do this, too!
So here I am.
To be honest, I’m not sure I feel qualified to be in this space. These women that I find myself following have some serious hustle, beauty, and not to mention photography skills that I am envious of. But it’s motivating and exciting to me, and I look forward to learning and having this creative outlet again.
What can I expect from Simply Styled?
I titled my little space on the internet Simply Styled for a few reasons. First, I am all about simplicity in my life. It keeps me sane and I hope that reflects in my tone and the content I choose to share with you. “Simple” also reflects my personal clothing style. It’s probably a byproduct of living in NYC for so many years, but I gravitate towards those neutral tones most days, but I can’t help infusing a pop of color or some fun flare when I can.
My goal here is to act as a service to you – I want to share where I purchased my recent outfits, and how I style the pieces I have in my closet, and if I’m lucky maybe provide a little style inspiration to you when you’re staring into the abyss of your closet thinking you have nothing to wear. (Been there, girl. Still there.)
I’ll also be sharing deals that I come across at my favorite retailers. As I find my groove here, I’ll be posting consistently, but please also follow me on Instagram (@simply_styled_blog) where I’ll be able to more easily keep up with quick posts and stories.
I look forward to connecting with you!
