Childhood Dreams Defered

What do you want to be when you grow up?

This common question inundates us throughout our childhood.  When we are presented with this question our minds become a flurry of dreams and aspirations.  Although we may never become the astronaut, the superhero, or the guy that cooks the french fries at McDonalds, the idea of those careers excite us.

As we grow older, we begin to see that those childhood dreams quickly fade away and are replaced by more attainable goals that will pay us well, give our life purpose, and hopefully provide us with health insurance.  As we journey through life we oftentimes embark on side roads that allow us to explore our creativity and deep seeded passions.  The Stylish Steed has been one of those side roads.

After watching my great friend, Rebekah A. Faulk at Some Kinda Good, seek to satisfy her lust for life through her writing, I was inspired to pursue avenues that I once thought were silly for me to even think about.  Creating this blog was never something I thought I would do.  Over the past seven months, I have ventured out of my restricted mind and allowed myself to share my thoughts and ideas in regards to fashion, entertaining, and DIY decor.  Although I may never host The Chew  like Clinton Kelly, or provide articles for a major media publication, I have found happiness in creating my little corner of the internet.

With a desire to explore more of my “unknown dreams,” I am thrilled to announce the opening of my online store.  In a pursuit to clothe the world in stylish and timeless fashion, I am launching THE STYLISH STEED online boutique.

Focusing on women’s clothing and accessories, The Stylish Steed will offer quality products that will blend classic southern style with a modern feel and rustic details.  The selections reflect this American Prep aesthetic with clean lines, exciting colors and prints, and causal pieces that are timeless.

I not only hope that you will find items of interest in my store, but that you would also be inspired to pursue dreams that you never thought would be possible for you.  I have often been told that if your dreams don’t make you nervous, they aren’t big enough…so dream big.  I am so excited that you have joined me on my journey.  I absolutely love all the comments and encouragements that I have received from you all.  So put on your comfortable shoes and walk a little further with me down this side road of dreams.  You never know what paths you may find on that journey.

You will notice that a new header has been added to the top of the page labeled “STORE.”  By clicking that link, you will be directed to The Stylish Steed on-line boutique.  You can also visit the site at

  1. You make me proud, friend. I’ve always been a firm believer that when you do the things you love, success comes. I have no doubt this will be true for you. We’re already seeing evidence of that! In the words of the legendary Julia Child and what has become my personal mantra, “Find something you’re passionate about and keep tremendously interested in it.” Can’t wait to see where this journey takes you Boo! #DreamBig #DoWork

    • You are definitely a testament to success coming when you do what you love. You have been such an inspiration for me! You’re always spot on! Ha! Thanks for having the courage of your convictions.
