About Me


Hey, y'all! Thanks for stopping by.

My name is Whitney and I'm the one behind Pretty Meets Practical, a place filled with inspiration for bringing the finer things in life into your daily schedule & budget.

I've always loved that combination of quality and practicality  – like discovering an exact replica of a designer item, a killer sale, or a delicious recipe that only takes thirty minutes to make. (If you stick around here for any length of time you'll learn that weeknight dinners are my nemesis – but we're working through it.)

My goal for this blog is to help you (and me) find  those "finer" things, while keeping things practical. If you love cute & comfortable style, simple yet delicious meals, productivity & time-saving tips, and finding a little excitement in everyday life, I'm sure you’ll feel right at home here.

A little more about me:

I was born and raised in East Texas and currently live in a suburb just outside of Dallas with my husband, Ryan. We started dating during my Senior year of high school, and we've been laughing together ever since.

My day job is in marketing and I'm lucky enough to get to work from home. That means lots of quality time with my favorite co-worker, Memphis. He's a 20-pound mini-Aussie and my favorite sidekick.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
