I’m a Minnesota girl who loves the Lord, my husband, and my darling kids. I’ve also loved fashion and pretty things since I was a little girl dressing up in my mother’s clothes.
I began this blog with the dream of opening my own boutique featuring handmade/locally made items, and over time that dream has grown and evolved into something new and exciting. While I may still open that ‘someday boutique,’ I’m loving planning shopping and fashion events, creating jewelry, promoting small businesses, and sharing my passion with all of you.
For me, the most exciting thing about fashion is that you’re able to be an individual amidst a sea of sameness. My goal is to encourage women to find their own style within the constantly changing trends, whether it’s in the fashion realm, beauty, home decor, or by DIYing.

Ever since I was a little girl sitting in the church pew, I would sketch dresses, shirt and pant combos – any form of fashion illustration that I could think of. Fashion is most certainly my passion (though my view of what that means has changed over the years!). Pinstriped Chic jeans, Monchichi cotton tee, UnderRoos, faux pearls, and bare feet (so my jellys wouldn’t get dirty), traipsing through a pig lot enjoying life… yep, that was me as a child.
As I grew, I majored in Fashion Merchandising and marketing at the University of Nebraska, and went on to hold just about every position available in retail, from manager to buyer, visual display manager and a role in merchandise distribution. 15 years of industry experience has brought me here – to join the Wild Ruffle team. But 11 years of motherhood has given me the experience to know the need for affordability and comfort without losing your sense of style.
I find great joy in the art of scoring a deal, and I’m excited to share that joy with all of you, in addition to passing along my love for finding the balance in family and fashion.
