Hi, everyone! I'm Zelle, the blogger behind Southern Style. Southern Style was founded in 2012 on a whim, while sitting in front of my computer one day during a Christmas break from college.

I graduated from Meredith College, moved from one side of the state to the other, and finally get to call the coast of North Carolina home. I'm engaged to the sweetest guy (you can read more about that here) and we have what I think could potentially be the cutest pup out there, Sophie. 

Southern Style is a life + style blog that focuses on fashion, beauty, design, travel and more. With a passion for writing and all things style, I created this place to showcase my love for a perfect clutch, sky-high heel, and lowback sundress, a delicious brunch recipe or perfectly designed living room, and maybe even a few wedding plans or two. I like to blend my Southern taste with city style and love mixing budget pieces with high end items.
