Price and Style

For those somewhat new to my site, you may not know where the name Style Every Day came from. When I was in college, I was surrounded by a lot of girls who looked to high priced items for fashion. They equated price tag with style, when in reality they were just buying $200 sweatpants. Sorry, not sorry Juicy Couture ala 2006.

I decided then and there that regardless of how much money I made or whether or not I could pay my rent, I would choose to show my style every day. No sweatpants. No t-shirts.

While I may spend a bit more on some special pieces now and then (hello, lovely Kate Spade watch!), I still spend a very small amount on clothes.

This outfit really reflects that. All of these items were bought from discount stores. It doesn’t get much better than that.

City Walk

I say this a lot but I love my city. Saint Louis has truly become our home over the last two years and I can’t imagine living anywhere else at this point in my life.

I love that I live in a walkable neighborhood. Situated in Fox Park, our home is just over a mile from Tower Grove Park, blocks from Lafayette Square and our grocery store and just a short five minute drive to church.

It makes it so convenient to come downtown anytime we like for work or for play.

The Perfect City Pool

Cortona at Forest Park

As a city girl, you all know how much I love the concrete jungle of downtown, streetscapes of urban neighborhoods and lush greenery of Tower Grove and Forest Parks. But what’s a city girl to do when the temps hit the upper 90s and all you want is a pool day? Well, it turns out […]

Drinking My Way Through Portland In The Rain

One of my favorite parts of Portland was all of the beer. Yes, beer. There are so many fantastic breweries in and around downtown Portland, all well set up for sampling your way through their wares. We went to Hair of the Dog (pictured above), Lucky Labrador (great for sitting around, drinking beer and playing […]
