Jen believes you can “be stylish without being superficial, on trend without being a slave to fashion, and look good without looking down on others.”

A new mom to Harrison, Ally Gradley is Gumboot Glam, which she says is a metaphor for her personal style: “glam can be anything from red lips to high heels, and even jeans and a t-shirt.

Join her nearly 50,000 Instagram followers and follow along Ally’s fashion journey.
Bree chose the name The Urban Umbrella because she thought her blog would include an umbrella of topics.

She publishes honest product reviews and beauty looks for people on a budget and recently posted a comprehensive article on building a capsule wardrobe too, which is a must for people looking to declutter their closet.
