Dresses And Denim Fashion Blog

Welcome to Dresses And Denim fashion blog!  I’m Carly, a full time mommy to a sweet toddler boy, wife of almost ten years, and a part-time young professional living in the southwestern United States.

The Origins of Dresses And Denim Fashion Blog:

As far back as I can remember I was a t-shirt, jeans, and ponytail kind of girl.  I always had an appreciation for a stylish outfit, but was too focused on my education to put effort into the way I looked.  I promised myself that once I had “made it”, I would do a complete wardrobe make-over.  Years later, I was finally done with graduate school and had my dream family and career, so I contacted a personal stylist to re-do my closet.  She turned me down because she was too busy with her blog.

I was disappointed, but decided to teach myself about outfits.  I dedicated a year to re-doing my closet and developing my personal style.  Eventually I realized that seeing pictures of my outfits was a helpful tool for editing my wardrobe, so I started Dresses And Denim fashion blog in the fall of 2014.

As I began styling outfits for myself and featuring them on the blog, I soon realized that good clothes aren’t the only thing necessary for a fashionable look.  A cute hairstyle and make-up are also needed, so I started learning how to do my hair and came up with a make-up routine that worked well for me.  I started getting questions about my hairstyles and make-up, so I decided to add some hair and make-up tutorials to the blog, and thus Dresses And Denim fashion blog became a beauty and hair blog too.

Commonly asked questions:

Who takes your pictures and what camera do you use?
My husband takes all of my pictures. He has really became a fantastic photographer over the years and enjoys doing it.  We use a Canon 3D and a 55 mm portrait lens.

Where do you live and take your pictures?
I live in New Mexico and have been blessed with a scenic yard, which is where we take the majority of the blog pictures.

How do you have time to be a mom, work, and blog?
I stick to a very set routine. Two days a week are set aside for my career and the other days I spend with my little one. Every afternoon we have quiet time and he will take a nap or read books for an hour or two, during that time I do the majority of my blogging.

How tall are you?
Five foot nine.

Here’s a little video I made of my favorite blog posts from the first year.
