Behind the Blogger – Personal Style meets Decor

Do you think about how your personal style meets decor choices? I’ve realized a few things as I settled into my adulthood and left the teeny-bopper land behind. I seemed to have some rules that float between worlds… I like a good classic. Cost-to-wear ratio should always be considered. Punch it up with a great accessory. And, […]

This was followed by trips down the garden aisle in various home improvement stores on at least 3 different […]
