A Little Background Info:

I graduated from Mississippi State University in 2014 with a degree in Apparel, Textiles, and Merchandising. I have a background in styling, social media, website management, SEO, and the list goes on. I feel like I’ve seen so many sides of the industry at a relatively young age, and I love them all! My path has been anything but normal, but I wouldn’t change it for a second, because I truly believe that it brought me to my true love — my husband, Kevin. We talk all the time about how if I hadn’t had the job that I did at the time (you guessed it, in the fashion industry), we would have never met.  Kevin is an Air Force pilot, and I still can’t believe it sometimes when I tell people we met in my home town. I NEVER thought I would find someone in that tiny town that I’d lived in for forever… I mean, afterall, I knew EVERYONE in it. But God has a funny way of showing you who’s actually in charge of your path. Kevin and I met while he was in pilot training in my hometown. And he is why I’m where I’m at today. His first assignment was Little Rock, which was a blessing in itself. It was literally the closest we could have been to each other out of all of his possible first assignments. Fast forward almost 2 years later, and here we are! We got engaged New Years Eve 2016 and were married September 2017.

My Purpose

I always told myself I could not and would not be a military spouse, but again, God has a funny way of showing you who’s boss. Yall, let me tell you, military life is HARD.  There has been a serious learning curve. I’m learning to be independent in a different kind of way (I thought I had that part of my life mastered), and I’m dealing with being away from all of my family and friends for the first time ever. I have a full time job, I have two little pups to take care of, and I’m making all new friends. That’s alot for one introvert to handle. So, I say all of that to say this: It’s hard. But it’s worth it. And I refuse to let the hard days and the long deployments take my joy or my passion.

This is where Style Worthy comes in. It’s two-fold, really.  I want this to be somewhere I can come when I need an outlet, creative or otherwise, especially when Kevin is gone. I want it to be a place where you can come to be inspired. Inspired to be yourself, to find your style, and to embrace it. Because you are worth it, and I truly believe that the perfect outfit can turn your day around. Finally, I want it to be a place for military spouses to come and feel like they aren’t alone, because every deployment is a beast of its own, no matter how many you have to go through.  So I hope you join me on this crazy adventure, and I hope you feel inspired, encouraged, and beautiful when you leave here.
