“Playing dress up begins at age five and never really ends."
This blog is my favorite hobby. I'm a full-time elementary teacher by day and I love spending my downtime working on my low-key hobbies. I"m a pretty introverted person, so when I'm not teaching I need to do things that recharge my batteries. Shopping, writing and reading are all things that can help me recenter myself. I am a big believer in spending our lives doing what we love to do.
Sunsets and Stilettos is meant to be a mix of my depth vs. my whimsy. That's how this blog got its name.
It's my take on style, beauty, and life. I appreciate you being here with me and hope you enjoy your stay.
Fashion is very cerebral to me. I'd love to tell you I throw my outfits together and walk out the door but I don't. Putting together a great outfit is like putting together a jigsaw puzzle. It takes thought and concentration. Shopping is the same way. There are always things I fall in love with, but there are a series of questions I ask myself before I buy anything. I even tend to picture my wardrobe to figure out what that piece would go with.
My Instagram and my blog are my outfit planning sessions on display. I love spending some time on the weekends planning different outfits to wear during the week. Doing this has helped my morning routine immensely. I scan through my photos and pick the outfits I plan to wear for the week. Every post might not be what I'm wearing on that exact day, but it's definitely an outfit I'm wearing that week or ones that I've tweaked for work or the weather.
In addition to loving clothes and all things girly, I absolutely love words. I've been writing my whole life. It has been an outlet for a brain that is always spinning its wheels. I love to write poetry about what inspires me; and chances are if you're in my life, that will be you.
I am so captured by the beauty in the world and I am constantly trying to capture moments and memories. There is so much to appreciate and to be thankful for. There is wonder in the world if we are open enough to see it.
Sunsets always seem to help me write. I love watching sunset and capture every photo I can of the good ones. My friends know me for snapping tons of pictures of the sky at any given moment. In fact, if I miss a good sunset, they have been known to send me the skies that I miss. There is so much wonder in the sky changing its' colors. I tend to be a pretty analytical, deep thinker, and having the word sunsets in my blog title just makes sense for who I am.
