Style has always been a difficult concept for me. As a girl who struggled with being confident in her own skin, let alone clothing to display the body I was born with, in the past I have hidden in my clothes. As I’ve grown, I’ve had to come to terms with how I look, and the reality that style isn’t simply a surface level description of who are. Style is and has become my outward expression of who God made me to be.

I’ve never been a frilly girl; I like clean lines, neutral colors, and stripes. I wear little jewelry and I like natural make up with pops of color on my lips. I have piercings and tattoos that subtly point to who I believe God has shaped me into. A cross adorns my right wrist, “worthy” is on my left. I have the Hebrew word “selah” on my foot, reminding me to be still and reflect on what God has done. 

I want my style to point people to Jesus. I want them to know by looking at me that my heart is for what troubles theirs, that I’m creative and open to what the Holy Spirit can do, and that I value my body enough to continually work towards health. I want them to know that while I like looking good, helping people work through the crap that brings them down makes me feel better. 

I believe that style is confidence, grace, understanding, self-worth, and the ability to sit with people in their messy. It’s not the perfect contour, the best vibrant lip color, or the biggest and smoothest hair. Style is looking good, but reflecting the good of the Creator who has made us, shaped us, and molded us.

About The Author

I’m the owner and editor of Stellar Day Blog! I started blogging back in 2009 right after I had my first son and I often say that blogging saved my life. I didn’t realize I had so much I wanted and needed to say, and blogging gave me a creative outlet to do it. It turned from figuring out how to be a mom into wanting to encourage and inspire others in a lot of avenues that inspire ME daily. I love Jesus, people, coffee, starting businesses and encouraging others to succeed. I’m the owner and CEO of Jay & Jess Photography, which I own with my husband. We live in Scottsdale, AZ and don’t plan to leave anytime soon UNLESS we have the chance to move to the mountains. Just kidding. Not really. Sort of. I love to travel, get coffee with friends, take rad photos and build relationships with our clients. After all is said and done, it’s my goal with this blog to lift your spirits a little, and for you to leave a little happier than when you came. Because everyone knows that we could all use a little more happy in our days. I’m just a girl who’s inspired by life, people, details, words, art, love and who seeks any opportunity possible to spark a little inspiration into others. So I hope you find just that!
