About Me

Hey everyone! I'm Shilo! I started my blog in 2013 for anyone interested in the preppy, classic style and what my *glamorous* life as a teenager is like. Five years later and my blog has been the most exciting journey ever! My blog has helped me to become a more confident person and has helped me to come out of my shell. I've met so many sweet bloggers and have had the opportunity to work with the most amazing people and I'm truly blessed with this opportunity!

You probably came here so you could get to know me a little bit better so now that you know a little about my blog lets talk about me. I am an eighteen year old girl livin' it up in the fabulous state of Texas! God is a huge part of my life and I am very active in my church group. Whether it's traveling or fun events, I am always busy with something and love to share about my adventures on the blog. I am a  senior in high school and will be attending Dallas Baptist University in the fall. I take all advanced classes and want to go to college to teach second grade. I look forward to back to school season more than I do summer and I have an unhealthy addiction to stationary and office supplies-- if I like it I'll buy it.

When I'm not busy I enjoy drawing and painting and have even had a few of my pieces in a local art gallery. I enjoy photography and wish I had more time for it. I read absolutely love to read and my summer nights are spent staying up until two in the morning reading. I also like to spend every spare minute I have with my best friend McCray who has been a huge help with my blog. She brainstorms post ideas with me, takes most of my pictures for me, and isn't afraid to look crazy while doing things for the blog in public.

My style can be described mostly by scallops, stripes, navy and pink, pearls, and anything Lilly Pulitzer. I love the classic style, and love that each clothing item is an investment that is timeless and can be worn for years to come. As much as I love all of those things listed above, I don't think I could put my style only in the "preppy" category. My style can be all over the place at times and I buy what I like regardless of the category it fits into. I am definitely that girl in school who gets dressed up every day. On my worst day I show up to school in an ironed t shirt, jeans cuffed at the ankle, pearls, and Jack Rogers. As much as I love my Jack Rogers and Lilly Pulitzer it's always good to own a trusty pair of Vans and a concert  t shirt or two.

What else should you know about me? I have had quite a few animals over the years including pigs, turtles, a llama, cows, chickens, hermit crabs, fish, dogs, and rabbits. My favorite animals are monkeys and llamas. I have an older sister, a younger sister, and a younger brother. My favorite colors are pink, navy blue, and red.

Why did you wear sun glasses in your older posts?
I wore sunglasses for safety reasons, originally I wasn't allowed to show my face at all so my mom and I came to a compromise.
What camera do you take pictures with?
I use a Canon Rebel T5 and I love it.

Luv Ya!
