Welcome to Stripes & Whimsy!

While serving as an Active Duty Army Captain at the Pentagon in 2013, I decided to start my blog as a creative outlet. Seven years, five moves, three babies and one blog name change later, my blog about decorating has morphed into a place where I share my classic yet affordable style, the occasional furniture DIY project, my candid experience with motherhood, and health and fitness tips for the busy woman trying to juggle it all. I have a passion for stripes, the ocean, running, clean beauty, a good pair of yoga pants and an affordable glass of wine, and I think that life is best lived when you add a little dash of whimsy to everything. I’m married to my husband Tom, and we have three children named Jackson, Caroline and Tate. We moved from Hawaii to the DC area in mid-2020 after Tom retired from the Army, and we just purchased our first home in Arlington, Virginia.

Thanks for stopping by!
