My name is Amy and I’m a 30 something city girl now living in downtown Brooklyn. I grew up in Las Cruces, New Mexico, then spent 10 years living in Seattle before making the move to the bigger city with my husband, Michael, and our 3 kitty kids named Lola, Coco, and Oliver. Yes, we are the crazy cat people. I have a full-time work from home job as an Executive Assistant. Sometimes it is hard to find motivation to get dressed when you work from home, so this blog helps keep me going, because style is fun! Oh, and in case you hadn’t guessed, I love denim and polka-dots!
I have always loved fashion, and have a Bachelor’s degree in Clothing, Textiles, and Fashion Merchandising from New Mexico State University. I believe that taking pride in your appearance is important to show you have respect for yourself and for those around you. This doesn’t mean you have to be a supermodel – it means developing a style that showcases who you are, and that makes you feel confident! It also doesn’t mean you have to be rich, I’m a huge bargain shopper! My favorite quote from Rachel Zoe pretty much sums it up I think – “Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak.”
I will also post the occasional recipe and foodie things on here, and you can always check out my recipe index. My husband and I follow a “Primal” or “Paleo” eating lifetyle. Basically we are all about food quality and want to eat foods as close to nature as we possibly can, grass fed beef, pastured chicken/eggs and organic veggies/fruit as often as we can with what is available and we are not afraid of eating lots of natural fats (aka grass fed butter, coconut oil, olive oil, lard etc.). We avoid grains (especially those with wheat & gluten), legumes, sugar, and processed and partially hydrogenated oils (aka vegetable oil, soybean oil, canola oil, margarine) as much as possible. As for excercise, we are Crossfitters!
Thanks for visiting and I always love comments! : )
