I’ll slowly be updating my “about” page but for now here is my first blog post *with some tweaks* to get to know me a little better!  -Kat

UPDATE: I was featured on @liketoknow.it !!!

Hey there!

My name is Kathryn Claire Jessogne and I’m new to the blog world.  I’ve always wanted to start a style/fashion blog but never took the time to do it. I’m finally taking advantage of the fact that I’m a stay at home mommy now to stop procrastinating and to just do it already!

cue: “Don’t Stop Believing”

Let me give you a little history on myself first though… 

I was going to school at the University of Central Oklahoma when I first fell in love with exploring my personal style/fashion and started working for a cute fashion boutique in Oklahoma City called Lucca. I realized I was wanting to follow my career path into the fashion world, so I moved back to Tulsa to go to school at Oklahoma State University Tulsa campus to work towards my degree in Apparel Merchandising. I also worked at Forever 21 where I learned a lot of my merchandising skills and to just have fun with style and to not take it so seriously! 

While working at Lucca in Tulsa I helped rename the boutique to Dolce Vita and became the buyer. One of the perks of the job was that I got to go to market in Dallas, Los Angeles and Las Vegas.  I knew for sure then that I was obsessed with fashion styling and helping others find their style to make themselves feel good in the clothes they are wearing! I left Dolce Vita to work for Dillard’s to learn more of the retail biz on a bigger scale but for now I’m staying home with my little babe.  

So, I have this goal for myself of one day opening my own brick & mortar boutique.  Hopefully this blog will be an inspirational fashion journal that can lead me down that path in following my dreams! Of course along the way I will be posting about my personal life being a new wifey, a new mommy and new home owner! 

My husband and I have been married for just a little over two years now and we have one kiddo, a boy named Julian Guy.  We just built (now living in) our new home!

(See some more family pics & glimpses of our new home from my post here)

Looking forward to becoming a part of the fashion blogging community and hope you enjoy and feel inspired.  Please feel free to leave comments or contact me at aroundtownbabe@gmail.com 

Thanks for reading and following along.

Later Babes!
