It all started when we met at age 6 in ballet class, but it wasn’t until middle school where we realized we were destined to be life long best friends. From dance recitals, to junior high dances, through high school drama and even rooming together in college…one thing remained constant, our friendship. And it’s that rare kind of friendship that is like honey to your soul…the kind of laugh so hard together you almost pee your pants kind of friendship.

Now with MILES between us geographically, our friendship remains steadfast and our common love for fashion, home design and everyday beauty binds us in constant text messages, late night phone calls debating special event outfits, consulting on updates to our respective homes and sharing our latest sources of inspiration. This shared passion for style has birthed our newest passion, our blog Miles2Style.

A little more about us:

I married my high school sweetheart and we are the proud parents of Breaker, the most spoiled dog on the planet, who has been known to wear bow ties. I am an interior designer and personal stylist by trade, so my work and my free time is spent shopping and styling and I wouldn’t have it any other way! I may live in Scottsdale, Arizona...but I will always be a midwest girl at heart.

A self-proclaimed perfectionist and sweetaholic, so much so that you will find me using a ruler when I hand write to make sure my lines are straight and indulge in too many sweets, whenever I am given the chance.

My family and friends are what keep me going, I never miss a friend’s birthday and a chance to serenade them with my very own rendition of Happy Birthday.

Colette married her high school sweetheart and I married my college sweetheart. While I don't have any pets, I keep busy spoiling my nieces and nephews...they bring such joy to my life and I can't help but spoil them. I call Minneapolis, Minnesota my home and live for the summers!

By day, you will find me at Restoration Hardware where I am a Residential Design/Trade Specialist and help customers decorating dreams come true. By night, you will find me working on my latest DIY project or re-designing my home. I love my friends and family more than anything and am a chronic host of parties and get-togethers of every size.

My love for style extends from home design to fashion…a self proclaimed shopaholic, I can’t get enough and indulge in every fashion magazine I can get my hands on. And I typically enjoy reading them as well as my collection of coffee table books, over a nice glass of vino.  

And for the record, Colette is not the only one who can sing, I am known for my rendition of Dolly Parton’s 9-5.
