styled out west

Welcome to Styled Out West! A life and style blog for the everyday woman. I want this blog to be someplace you can come to get style inspiration, mom advice, and just follow along with my day to day life. A lot of people have told me that when they came across my Instagram page that it's relatable and real. I love hearing that and that's exactly my mission with this new blog.

You may be wondering where Nicole + Jenna went. Well, after Nicole and I both had babies it became more difficult to try and coordinate our busy schedules. While Nicole is still really invested in styling and the creative process, she also has a full-time job. Since I made the decision to stay home full-time with Tayler, I decided that blogging was something I really missed and wanted to start doing again. With that being said, our paths no longer seemed to cross in terms of business, but don't worry, we are still the best of friends and I'm sure you'll see her sneak up in the feed here and there! In case you are new to the site and haven't read any of my previous posts, or just don't really know much about me, you can check out the about section to find out more. 

 I feel so lucky to be able to do what I love every day and still have the chance to be home with Tayler to experience all her firsts. But being a Mom and having your own business is hard work. And no, I don't always look this put together {on most days I'm in yoga pants with no make-up}. But I do also love to dress up and look put together and yes, it's possible to be a Mom and still look stylish. It just takes more time - like me trying to get organized to get to this photo shoot with Bailey Makaimoku Photos and being an hour late because I was looking at the clock I forgot to move forward. And yes, sometimes she comes with me to photo shoots and business meetings on days I can't find childcare because I don't have any family that lives nearby. This is real life and this is me, so don't be intimidated by all the beautiful pictures you see on my Instagram account, and please know I'm a hot mess of a person 95% of the time. If you're lucky enough to catch my insta-stories you'll probably catch a few of these moments! Thanks for following along, I love you all!
