How to Dress Up Denim Shorts for SPring // the modern savvy, a life & style blog

Hi! Welcome to The Modern Savvy!

Since its inception in 2010, Florida lifestyle blogger Alyson at The Modern Savvy has focused on sharing style, home, family, career and wellness content for the everyday woman in a relatable, inspiring way.

I started this site based on what I would randomly discuss and ponder with my girlfriends. I want you to be here with the same feeling…. like you just had coffee, wine or a dance party with one of your besties.

I also believe we deserve to seek out our own joy, and success. And, I also know that each of us are brave, smart, kind, badass, significant, worthy, gorgeous, awesome and capable of all the things.

You’ll find a little bit of everything here (minus recipes — totally where I slack!), with my content content being our real conversations, dubbed VENT SESH. 

I want us to be more open honest with each other, so I’ll start: I talk about seeing a therapist, body issues, some significant health issues, adopting our son (and our failed adoption), and my father’s death, for example. They’re not easy topics, but they’re important ones that I hope we can journey through together.

So, read below to get to know me, and hope you’ll browse around The Modern Savvy!
