Married to Benson, mother to Addie. Planted in San Diego, but home grown in the Bay Area. Obsessed with all things Target, addicted to boba, and hopelessly dependent on chocolate ice cream. (With cavities to show for it.) Singer, musician, songwriter. Survives on good food, good belly laughs, and loving friends. And above all, in love with Jesus.
I work full time for a non-profit organization mentoring and pastoring college students, helping them grow in their faith in a meaningful and authentic way, and empowering them to live for something greater than themselves. It's pretty fun, and it's a privilege to be part of.
About the Blog
I've always loved shopping and style, and after discovering style blogs in April 2011 all of that inspiration gave me an itch to rework my closet and let my style evolve. To what, exactly? I didn't know, so I started this blog in June 2011 to help me figure it out.
While Putting Me Together started out as a fun outlet to grow my style, along the way it has grown into a resource for other women to do the same. I've seen a lot of women overwhelmed and distressed about clothes and disheartened about their bodies, and my hope is that this blog relieves some of that. I believe every person deserves to feel great about themselves. Whether you already think style is fun or whether you feel "style challenged," this blog aims to make style accessible to everyone.

If you have a question about how to style a certain item, please understand that I may not be able to get to it. I try my best, but I only get to about 75% of them. Life is pretty full now with a newborn, work, and keeping up with the blog. Instead, ask for advice from ladies on the Go Chic or Go Home or catch me for a quick word of advice on Twitter.
I read every single email and am extremely appreciative and encouraged by them. I do my best to respond to what I can, but due to the busyness of managing life, I may not be able to respond to each of your emails. Thanks for understanding. :)
