I am a wife, mom and the lifestyle blogger behind The Southern Style Guide, an online destination for stylish living & livable style. The Southern Style Guide started as an outlet for me to share my recent shopping finds and style inspiration with others. It has since evolved to my own little corner of the internet where I help my readers know where to shop, what to buy and how to style everything from their wardrobe to their next dinner party. As a busy working mom who also enjoys having a social life I am all about having maximum style with minimum effort. My readers appreciate my honesty, no-nonsense approach and desire to live stylishly without wasting time or breaking the bank. If it can't be thrown in the dishwasher, I don't want it. If it takes 3 months to see a noticeable difference in my pore size, I'm not going to use it. If I can't wear it chasing my kids around and on a date with my husband, I'm more than likely not buying it. After, I have too much life to live hanging out with my little family and traveling, eating and shopping my way around this lovely corner of the world I call home.
