All about Mary Grace:
I was born and raised in the small town of Greenwich, CT. With the exception of college (Southern Methodist and Hobart) and a short stint in China, I’ve lived here all my life. During college I had numerous fashion internships doing everything from packing boxes in warehouses to assisting with the planning and execution of major marketing campaigns. After college and some serious soul searching I decided to go another route and pursue a nursing degree all the while still maintaining my love of fashion and styling. I started volunteering at an ambulance service and fell in love with it. There is something to be said for the adrenaline rush you get when those lights and sirens go on. It’s a feeling like nothing else, but it’s more about the fact that in their most vulnerable moments these people entrust us with their lives and I take great pride in that. But when you wear scrubs or an EMS uniform everyday you long for the nights you get to dress up and the days you don’t have to wear work boots (I will never get used to them).
Fast forward a few years and here we are: I am finally taking the plunge and starting a blog. I’ve thought about it for a long time, but putting yourself out there can be really intimidating especially in today’s world of social media. But at the urging of family and friends I am putting my creative instincts and ideas out there for everyone to see and I couldn’t be more excited about it. I am a firm believer that when you look good, you feel good. Giving people a sense of confidence goes a long way. So if I can do that for just one person it will be worth all the nights I spent figuring out how to work square space ( and that's WAY more that I want to admit).
I do not claim to be an expert on anything! This blog is merely just a compilation of my personal style and ideas. I hope you all enjoy it and I look forward to hearing from you.
