A Letter from the Editor

Hi Babes!  Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog. I can't wait to connect with you! 

I never thought what I started, as a hobby, almost 10 years ago would turn into a career.   I chose the name for my blog, not to be a contradiction of my love of fashion, but more of a nod to a mantra I live by: To live your best life, no matter the cost. 

Over the past 10 years a beautiful community of women have come to me for help with style, beauty, and home interior advice and I love helping others any chance I can get.  I hope you stay a while,  get to know me and my style a bit better,  and if there's ever anything I can do to make this space more inspiring or valuable for you, just let me know.  I always love to hear from you! 

Talk soon and sending love to wherever you are from the beautiful Outer Banks.



1. To be “fashionably broke” means to be “broke” in the most desirable way.

Frequntly Asked Questions



How did you start your blog?

I really did just that - Woke up one day and started blogging. Granted I started my blog 10+ years ago with no intention that anyone would even read it, but more so out of my passion for fashion and photography. You can read more about my blogging journey - Type "blogging" into the search bar.


Where are your favorite places to shop?

I've been a Nordstrom girl for as long as I can remember. I also search Shopbop, Net-a-Porter and Revolve weekly for inspo. I also love discovering smaller labels on Instagram as well as shopping vintage.


Why did you move to the Outer Banks?

Wes and I feel so fortunate to now call the Outer Banks home. It's where we fell in love and just feels right that our journey led us back here together. Life is short and we believe making the life you want for yourself. It's easy to get stuck in your comfort zone, but the real growth happens outside of it.
