About this Blog
I first started blogging in 2010 on the blog Work Wear Style. I had recently become a mother for the first time and was struggling to find my style as a working professional. It became a fun outlet for my wardrobe experiments and I soon realized that there were many new moms struggling with the same things:
- finding stylish clothes that are good quality for a great price
- finding new ways to wear the things you already have
- finding the time and money to spend on yourself
One of the hardest things I’ve found as a mom is to find balance in a hectic life where there never seems enough time or money for everything and you’re always being asked for something by somebody.
That’s when I decided to start Pennies to Polka Dots.
I realized that building a fun wardrobe is one way of holding onto who you are as an individual when it’s so easy to get lost in just being a wife, mother, sister, worker, or grandmother. However, it made me curious about other things that help keep women stay in touch with who I they are now and explore how they might want their life to look and feel in the future.
That’s why in this blog you’ll find all the very best tips and ideas for the things that will inspire you to create the life you want… all in the same place:
- Fitting in health and fitness into your busy schedule
- Organizing your wardrobe, beauty supplies and home
- Career advice and inspiration
- Easy outfit ideas & style tips
- Great reads
- Amazing places to travel
- and… Staying Money Smart (so you can afford to do the things that bring you joy)
I hope you love it!
