Hi friends, I’m Erin and I’m so happy to have you here! I am 25 years old and currently live in Lexington, Kentucky, but I grew up in Illinois and Wisconsin. I moved here for college in 2011 and don’t plan on leaving anytime soon! I now work for the University as a transportation research engineer. My job involves studying current transportation methods and evaluating new ones with regard to efficiency, safety, and environmental impacts. When I’m not working, I get to embrace my other passions! I am an outdoor enthusiast; Kentucky has some great hiking and climbing destinations and has lots of great weather for it. I love spending downtime with my pets; I have two cats and take care of my mom’s dog whenever she travels. I also enjoy baking and I often bring treats into the office- so my coworkers either love me or blame me for ruining their diet, haha! Lastly, I am a pianist. I have been playing since I was 6 and it is my main creative outlet. I bought my first piano at 21 and wedged it into my tiny apartment bedroom at the foot of my bed.
This blog is my second creative outlet and I love it just as much! Started in April 2017, the idea was born out of a love for putting together outfits. I value well-fitting clothes and timeless pieces, as well as the occasional fun trend. I’ve found that dressing well makes me more confident and able to take on all that life throws at me! Overall, I want to feel and look good. When friends and coworkers started asking for fashion advice, I realized how much I love helping others feel and look good too! So here at Rosewood Runway, I want to do just that.
- If you’re looking for outfit inspiration, check out the Outfits tab. I’ve shared outfits for various seasons and types of events, from casual to business professional. I post a lot of new buys, but I also put emphasis on reusing pieces of clothing you already have, so I try to keep my outfits accessible for everyone!
- If you’re looking for specific fashion tips, head over to Style Guides. Here you’ll find everything from general fashion formulas to secret tricks I use. This is my favorite section of the blog and the one that I put the most work into! It offers the most value to you too! These guides help you dissect the world of fashion and figure out what works for you.
- The Shopping tab includes the latest sales. I also usually share some of my favorite finds from the sale. I love hearing about what you’ve purchased during these sales. I get to vicariously shop through you all! 😉
- The most recent addition is a Lifestyle section of my blog. As I develop this category, I will share more about myself, my hair/skincare routines, my fitness tips, and favorite recipes. It’s sort of a catch-all for everything not fashion, and I think it will be fun!
My hope is that this blog can serve as a source of inspiration, helpful tips, and fun reading. I want to help you rock your own runway every day!
