About Leanne

Welcome to The Styled Suburbian!

Hi! I’m Leanne. I’ve always been interested in fashion – specifically, affordable fashion.  Over the last year or so I found myself following many fashion bloggers but would be disappointed when I could not afford the clothing many of them were wearing.  Many of us don’t live in a city or travel the world multiple times a year. If you’re like me, you aim to look stylish within a budget. You live outside the city – the suburbs -, have a full time job and a ‘To Do’ list a mile long. I live just outside of Boston but commute into the city for work as we moved to the suburbs in July of 2015.

I have a great full time job but have always felt like I needed to do something more. I wanted to find a hobby I was really passionate about as I thrive on challenges and am not one to sit still on the weekends.  During the summer of 2016 I had heard about Sophia Amoruso’s #Girlboss and downloaded it to my Kindle as a beach read.  As she says,

“learn to create your own opportunities. Know that there is no finish line; fortune favors action. Race balls-out toward the extraordinary life you’ve always dreamed of, or still haven’t had time to dream up. And prepare to have a hell of a lot of fun along the way!”

The day after I finished the book I turned to my husband Sam and said, “I think I want to start a blog”.  He immediately loved the idea, became the camera man (a new hobby for him) and now here we are!

I hope to inspire you with realistic, affordable fashion choices (I’ll always provide the coupon codes).  I’m so glad you’ve joined me!

P.S. I’d love to hear from you! You can reach me at leanne@thestyledsuburbian.com or on the contact page. Thank you so much for following along!
