Why I Started Modestly Maddie

In 2014, I launched Modestly Maddie for the first time as a platform to share my love of fashion. It was a way to showcase what I was wearing, where I was shopping, and how to piece together trendy items. While fashion has been and always will be a passion of mine, my outlook on clothing has since shifted.

I began to lose interest in continuously buying new clothes just to keep up with the demand. What was the point? There was no need and I found myself always going back to my classic favorites. After spending my college years stocking up on clothes, my move to a small apartment in the city had me reflecting. I decided to overhaul the things I never wore and with every item I picked up, I asked myself “does this bring me joy?” If the answer was no, then there it went. What was left was a minimalistic, structured closet of my favorite, most trusted items and a new direction for my blog.

Instead of writing about clothes, I wanted to evolve Modestly Maddie into a holistic look at lifestyle and maybe someday, a business. Slowly, I’ve begun to share not only my style but my organizational tips, my thoughts and my adventures.

Through this evolution, I’ve identified my passions and my strengths. I make a mean packing list: I have a special ability to foresee any outfit one would need on a big trip no matter what the destination. I love refining a closet: Not only was I able to overhaul my own closet, but I’m devoted to refining others’ and helping them shop what they already have. I’m committed to helping people feel their best: I can help people create looks for themselves that make them feel confident in their own skin.

So in 2018, I launch Modestly Maddie for the second time. For those of you who have been here since the beginning, I thank you. For new followers, welcome to my journey. There will still be plenty of coffee shops and brunches with friends but I hope to engage, inspire, and reach people in new ways.

Here’s to new adventures!
