Hi! I’m Lisa, and I’m so happy to have you here! Something Pretty is a life and style blog where I love to share, reflect on, and dream up ways to never let something pretty pass me by. I believe that with a grateful heart, a joyful attitude, and an outfit that makes you smile, every day can become a special occasion. My hope is that you’ll join me in trying to go that extra mile to make even the little things in life really wonderful. Let’s do it together and encourage each other!
I’m a wedding magazine editor by day, which means I get to share beautiful celebrations and really amazing love stories with the sweetest brides. The rest of the time, I love creating a life with my new husband (we were married on May 2, 2015!), spending time in our new home, reliving my childhood abroad by indulging in my passion for travel, doing my best to lead a healthy and balanced lifestyle, and searching for the best iced coffee in Raleigh (so far, it’s from lucettegrace). We’re also joyfully preparing for the arrival of our baby boy, due in September 2016!
In 2016, I began posting outfits based on my three core beliefs about style:
1. Fashion is fun, but it’s far from the most important thing in the world.
2. Wearing something that is trendy is not important. Wearing something that makes me feel comfortable, confident, and true to my identity as a daughter of God is.
3. Going to my closet can be a joyful part of every day!
With these principles at heart, I love sharing my favorite outfits that I hope might inspire you to get dressed up or try something new.
Thanks so much for reading–I can’t wait to get to know you!
