Hi, I’m Tamara! I am so happy you are here!

I live in Michigan with the love of my life, Aaron, and two of the sweetest little white dogs – aka: my children, Brutus & Diesel.  We’ve been married 7 years and it has been an adventure ever since! I am a Believer who strives (and often fails) to be more like Jesus and am so thankful for God’s grace that allows me to pick myself up and try again when I fall. My faith and family are the most important things in the world to me and I don’t know what I would do or who I would be without them.

Since I was a little girl, I’ve been in love with fashion.  I remember putting outfits together the night before school and being so excited to wear them the next day.  I never cared what anyone thought as long as I loved what I was wearing.  Styling an outfit is an artistic expression for me, and I definitely don’t stick with one type of style.  I follow trends, but I also love vintage.  I have no fashion rules other than being 100% true to who I am and what I love. Helping women feel good in their own skin and love the body that God gave them (which, to be honest, is something I’m still working on everyday) is a passion of mine. I love styling and encouraging women to step out of their comfort zones and try something new. It’s amazing how clothes can transform your mood and make you feel beautiful inside and out.

My other loves include photography, flea markets, all things vintage, animals, Netflix, wine, lazy Sundays, and date nights with my husband. My hope for this blog is to inspire you to live a beautiful life, while staying true to yourself and your personal style.  I’m excited to share fashion advice, things that inspire me, and the ups & downs of everyday life.  All of the things that make me Truly, Tamara.
