Born and raised on the intercostal waterways of Stuart, Florida, I was by nature a water baby. The influence of growing up in what is now named Coastal Living's 2016 Happiest Seaside Town in America guided much more than my hobbies and happiness, my hometown influenced my lifestyle as a whole.

I started Seaside Styled during my senior year of college at Florida Atlantic University, but my desire to start a blog came many years before that. I remember taking my lunch breaks while working at an accountant's office and reading blogs and obsessing over where so-and-so got this top, and how well those jeans fit that girl because she told us she was 5'3" and didn't have to hem them. The concept consumed me, and I loved that I was no longer solely influenced by print and web media but now someone's genuine opinion of things. I knew someday I was destined to have my little corner of the internet to call my own.

Behind each post on Seaside Styled is a lot of love, trial and error, laughs with my photographer Kristy, purchases and returns, and inspiration. I hope that this blog turns out to be a place you can come when you're going on a date with your new boyfriend and can't figure out just what to wear with those red espadrilles you had to have. I hope when you're visiting Savannah in a few months and need a restaurant recommendation, that you find it here (I'm a true foodie at heart, I will seek out the underground hole-in-the-wall with the best baked oysters if it's the last thing I do). I hope that my coastal, beachy girl at heart twist on style inspires you! 

I started Seaside Styled as an outlet for my love of writing and shopping. My wish is that you follow along on the chronicles of Sam, because when I tell you the next few years are going to bring excitement, change, travels, outrageous yet somehow seemingly justified (in my eyes) purchases, and style, I mean it. Best part is... I can't wait to share all of it with you.

Theres a plethora of ways you can keep up with me! You can keep up with my daily finds and outfits that may not always make the blog on Instagram, stay up to date by following me on Twitter, and see what inspires me on Pinterest.

If you're ever stuck with a question you're dying to ask, need help with an outfit for something special, or just want to chat, please feel free to email me!

xox, Sam
