I am a 20 - something newlywed living in Eastern North Carolina with a stubborn Springer Spaniel and a spoiled 10 lb. Shih Tzu. By day I am part of corporate America working in personal finance and trying to make 9-5 a little more fashionable. After graduating with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology from Salem College, I moved to the beach and met my husband in of all places, a bar.
I started Moda & the Mar to share my love of fashion and my personal style journey in a small coastal town. I have been "dressing" myself since Pre-K. Frequently coming home with ruffles and bows permanently removed from clothing, or dressed in the spare outfit I hid in my bookbag since my parents wouldn't let me wear it. My personal style has definitely evolved with age, but I hope to inspire you with a modern style which blurs the lines between preppy, boho and edgy. You are never too old to play dress up.
