Welcome to Pretty Meets Practical!

Everyday Life + Classic Style

The Awkward First Post + A Little Background Info

The Awkward First Post + A Little Background Info

After years of writing for other people—teachers in school, clients at work, and even the wedding website that shared my wedding—it's time to change things up a bit. It's time for a place where I can write what I want, when I want.

The idea of Pretty Meets Practical has been floating around in my head for quite a while. At times I've envisioned a budget-friendly fashion blog with daily outfit inspiration. Other times I've considered sharing delicious yet easy-to-make recipes. But I've finally decided there's no reason I have to make a decision when both of those topics—and many more!—fit the mold I'm looking for. 

So to put it simply, my goal for this blog is to create a space where all of the finer things in life meet daily, practical living. 

Where elaborate, time-consuming recipes become do-able, weeknight meals.

Where you can find resources for organizing, simplifying, and systemizing your home – without losing comfort and style.

Where cute fashion trends meet daily comfort and a reasonable budget.

And just for good measure, where I get to share the occasional random story,  glimpses into day-to-day life, and a little travel here and there.

Who says you can't have it all?

This is where Pretty Meets Practical.
