We dig her style and her adorable family. Meet Linh.
How does a day in your life look like?
I like to describe it as organized chaos. Isn’t that usually how it is when you’re a WAHM? On the days when both girls are in school, I’m either running errands, attending business meetings, working on my blog, or working out. I try to get as much done when they’re at school so I can be fully present when I’m with them. I try to do something extra fun for them once a week, which as of late have been long bike rides to the park and spending our days at the beach. In my spare time, I love spending time with my family, getting my sweat on, and indulging in sweets + coffee.
If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you be?
Hmm…this is hard! I’d have to say somewhere tropical or exploring Europe – Greece or Italy to be specific - because those 2 places are on my bucket list.
If you could go back in time, what would you be?
Myself 10 years ago. I’d tell myself to take more risks, not sweat the small stuff, and be more confident in my skin.
How has your style evolved from your early years?
When I was younger, I experimented with a ton of styles. Hopefully, some of those photos won’t ever surface (ha!). Half of the time, I was just going along with what everyone else was wearing. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve learned that you can still be trendy while staying true to your own style. Now I gravitate more towards those staple pieces that I can incorporate into my wardrobe for years to come. I’m all about effortless street style, but every once in a while, I like to glam it up a bit.
How do you express yourself through jewelry?
It depends on the occasion and where I’m going. If I’m getting glammed up for the night, I might pick more dramatic pieces. If it’s for a fun GNO, I may opt for something flirty and colorful. However, I love keeping classic pieces that I can mix into my casual + dressy wardrobe. THOSE are the staples that will never go out of style.
Did your mother influence your sense of style, growing up?
My mom was always so classy. Growing up, we were poor and couldn’t afford any name brand clothes, but gosh, she always looked like a million bucks. I think my biggest takeaway from her style is to be confident in your own skin, dress like a lady, and you can still look fab without spending a fortune.
How will you be celebrating Mother's Day?
The only way I know how – with my babes! I love that my hubby treats me to a home cooked meal and I’m looking forward to the sweet handmade cards I get from my girls this year. And my Mother’s Day wouldn’t be complete without visiting my own momma. I seriously can’t go a day without seeing or talking to her.
What is on your wish list from Veatge?
Everything! If I had to narrow it down to 3 things, I’d say the Abstract Wire Hoop Earrings, Modern Cross Pendant, and Crossover Bangle.
