Created in 2016 as a community that brings creative, fashionable, on-the-go women together, Poised Avenue, as featured on LaurenConrad.com and AOL, is quickly growing and continuously inspiring trend setters everywhere. Poised Avenue is, well, just that (see definition 😉 ). It’s your own personal portal to inspiration you’re seeking in topics such as fashion, recipes, DIY, travel, even how to start a blog. You will: learn the ins and outs of my everyday, affordable style; learn how you can vamp up your own wardrobe; find the most trendy recipes and DIYs; follow along on my travel adventures; even learn how to set up your own blog and read up on my best blogging tips (if you’re into that!). Be sure to subscribe so you don’t miss a beat!

After years of dreaming of one day having a blog, I created Poised Avenue. Even though I am sort of a newbie, I threw myself into this blog full force, and I spend the majority of my time researching how I can better it (just ask my boyfriend – he will not hesitate to tell you 😉 ). It’s my favorite thing to do. I have always been passionate about creating, no matter what it was. Poised Avenue now serves as a creative outlet where I can share all of my passions with my even more passionate readers.

A Letter to my followers, 

I am a firm believer that personal style can and should be attained by all types of women in all aspects of her life. It should be fun, creative, inspiring, and can always be affordable! I hope this blog motivates you to create a sense of style that is true to you and makes you feel like the chic little lady that you know you are! It is such a dream come true for me to even have this website up and running and I can not wait to see where it goes! I want to thank each and every one of you for being a reader and supporting me in this journey.
