My Story

The story behind starting Lonestar Southern is an unexpected one. As a public relations major at the University of Texas at Austin, I was required to take a course called “Writing for Public Relations” during the spring semester of my sophomore year. One of the assignments in this class was to create a blog, any type of blog, and to create four blog posts for it.

At that point, fashion blogging was just barely beginning to emerge. In fact, I had no idea fashion blogging was even a “thing,” and initially started this blog as one focused on Texas culture and southern style. (If you want a laugh, go back through my first four posts!)

Needless to say, that was one school assignment I ended up loving. So much so, in fact, that I kept up with it all summer. It wasn’t long before Lonestar Southern had become my full-time hobby!
After a lot of thought and prayer, I decided to take Lonestar Southern full-time upon graduation. Needless to say, it has been one of the best decisions of my life! There is nothing I love more than sharing what I’m loving and learning with you all.

I now live in Dallas, Texas, and couldn’t love it more. When I’m not blogging, you can find me horseback riding, hanging out with my church small group of 7th grade girls, cooking with my mama or spending time with friends. I so appreciate you taking the time to visit my little space on the internet. I hope it brings you joy!
