I’m Veronika the blogger behind this space, and I’m so glad you’re here.
I live on the west coast with my husband, our eskipoo pup, and adopted cat Sunshine. I work as a portrait & fashion photographer by day, and love to run this blog in my spare time. Most days you’ll find me exploring nearby historic towns, grabbing coffee with my husband & friends, taking our pup to the pier, or entertaining in our home. I love creating memories and traditions, and believe life is best lived surrounded by the people you love.
I started blogging in the spring of 2010 as Girl & Closet as a way to reconnect with my love of fashion and continue to evolve my style. Then earlier in 2018 I rebranded under my name as way to refresh & rebrand my space, and I’m so happy I did. I still love to feature personal style, adventures, and daily life. Thanks for reading! xo

Frequently Asked Questions
Where are you from?
I'm originally from the Czech Republic but moved to Vancouver, BC when I was 7 and absolutely love it here. The west coast is an amazing place to live and I can't imagine life anywhere else.
What made you start your blog?
I had just spent a year working from home on my own business (aka, long nights & yoga pants) and was in desperate need of some fashion insp. Luckily, I stumbled on a few style blogs and was instantly hooked. If you're considering starting your own? Do it! It's honeslty such a fun community to be a part of!
What camera do you use and how do you edit your photos?
I use a Canon 6D full frame DSLR and a 50mm fixed portrait lens. As for editing? I love Rad Lab for actions & presets, plus swear by Lightroom.
What are your tips for creating new outfits?
I love to cruise the internet or peek through my Madewell or J.Crew catalogues for inspiration. Plus, there's nothing like a fantastic hat, scarf or pretty flat to help elevate any simple outfit.
What do you use on your hair?
I use moroccan oil and a ceramic curling wand for my beachy waves, and my stylist adds Olaplex to my hair colour treatments. If you haven't tried it? Run, it's honestly a life saver!
Are you a vegetarian and how do you stay fit?
No, I'm not a strict vegetarian, but I favour vegetarian dishes and rarely eat meat. For protein? I love to eat lentils, quinoa, split peas, oatmeal, brown rice and I add greens+ to my smoothies. As for staying fit? I love to do yoga and going on weekend hikes.
How long have you been married?
I've been with my husband for 20 years and absolutely adore married life!
