Welcome to Smart Southern Style

Hello everyone!  I am so excited to launch my new fashion and lifestyle blog, Smart Southern Style!  My name is Laura, and I am a wife, mama and fashion addict from Charlotte, NC.  I've had a love for fashion ever since I was a teenager and have always been interested in the latest trends, dressing for my body type and finding a great sale!   I started following fashion bloggers a year or so ago, and noticed quickly that there were not many bloggers in the age range of me and my friends. There were lots of super cute girls in their 20s and early 30s, and even some lovely ladies in their 50s and above.  But, I did not see many bloggers in their mid to late 30s and 40s.  I created this blog as a way to provide fashion inspiration to women my age (and any other age too!) who want to live a fashionable life without breaking the bank.

On my blog, you can expect to find my must have pieces for each season, great sale finds, different ways to style one clothing item and everything in between!  With every post, I will include links to what I am wearing under each photo so you can easily shop my looks.  I will post a new blog entry every week - on Tuesday, Thursday or both time permitting.  To have my posts delivered directly to your inbox, be sure to enter your email address to the right of this post under “Subscribe”.  Any fashion related posts will be found under the “Fashion” tab at the top of the blog. 

Fashion is my main passion (I’m a poet too apparently!), but I also have a love for home decor and will occasionally post about my latest decor finds, ideas and trends.  I enjoy travel as well, so when I visit a place I think you all would like to know more about, I will write a post about my trip.  Any posts like these that are not fashion related can be found under the “Lifestyle” tab at the top of this page.  

If you don’t already follow me on Instagram, you can find me by clicking here as I post on IG at least once a day.  You can shop any of my Instagram looks from the “Shop” tab at the top of this page.  I will also repost those looks on my Facebook page, so you can follow along here.  You can follow me here if you are on Pinterest to easily access any of my latest blogs posts as well.  

I want this to be a place where like-minded ladies can come together to have fun, get some fashion ideas and build each other up!  I would love to hear from you about anything you would like to see on the blog, so feel free to comment below or send me an email.  I’m so grateful you stopped by Smart Southern Style and I am looking forward to this new adventure!
