Hi ladies! My name is Joanne. I’m a fifth grade bilingual teacher, wife, and mom to two amazing boys, Colter and Rowan. I am a soccer mom with a love for fashion, and I absolutely refuse to wear "mom" jeans. Like many moms, I continue to struggle to lose my "baby" weight. The only problem is that my boys are now 15 and 12. I feel that curvy girls should not have to give up on fashion even though we do not meet society's standards of the "perfect body." My closet is color coordinated, and when I find great outfits, I print them out and post them on my closet wall. My husband thinks that’s a little crazy!! This helps me to coordinate my outfits daily.
My sister-in-law and I created the blog, joandjessfashionblog.com. We decided to launch a website where we could share our fashion inspirations, shopping suggestions, personal reviews, and to show you creative, budget friendly ways of recreating outfits that we see in magazines, on celebrities, or in websites. We hope to reach out to real women of all ages and sizes that experience fashion and budget dilemmas just like us!
I am obsessed with animal prints, boyfriend jeans, colored denim, and scarfs. My favorite places to shop are Forever 21 and Ebay. Forever 21 is a super affordable store where I purchase most of my tops, sweaters/cardigans, and blazers. I typically shop on Ebay for items that are no longer available, sold out, or not affordable in stores.
I really appreciate Jamie for allowing me to be part of her amazing blog!
