Man are you in for a treat today. This month's stylish mama is the inspirational and stunning Sarah Jenks. Sarah has been featured in Redbook Magazine, Huffington Post, Life and Style, Martha Stewart, Mind Body Green aaaand more. Sarah is one of those ladies who manages to make creating an influential lifestyle movement and being a mama look effortless and stylish. She also has this way of influencing and pushing you without even trying. I can speak first hand to this since Sarah and I are close friends. We also happen to be completely aligned in our mission to help women. As Sarah's personal stylist for events, video and photo shoots, and anything fabulous that comes her way, I love working with her to accentuate what a fantastic style she has. I feel equally grateful for our professional relationship, but even more so our personal one. This makes me extra extra excited to share this interview with her today because I KNOW you are going to love it.
One of my favorite things about Sarah is her ability to reinvent herself. She'll say to me "I have been feeling more 'sophistacted mama' lately and want my style to reflect that. " Boom now her style is more 'sophisticated mama'. She always makes it seem so easy. She is completely confident, completey truthful and completely brilliant at making women love themselves.
Sarah recently put out an incredible video series called Real Talk: Women and Our Bodies. In it, a dozen women, of all ages, sizes and situations, get real about what’s it’s like have a body they hate, what they did about it, and where they are now. The rawness, vulnerability and honesty of these women blew me away. I feel like this conversation needs to be happening WAY more often. Not only are these videos beautiful but completely necessary in order to change the way we talk about our bodies. You can see them by clicking here. And if you are moved to, please share them with a woman you care about. The more we talk about this stuff and heal our own body image issues, the more likely it is for the next generation to grow up without this challenge.
Furthermore, Sarah’s created an incredible Lifestyle Video Program to help you get out of the diet/binge cycle by creating a fun, meaningful and romantic life so you can finally reach your ideal weight. And she’s offered it to you for free. You can click here to get instant access to her free training. I’m so excited for you to be a part of this training, because Sarah is all about putting down our obsession with weight and getting back to what really matters, like our relationships, our purpose and having a ton of fun. The icing on the cake is that focusing on these areas helps us to naturally shed that extra weight. Bonus.
Now to our fantastic interview where Sarah opens up about her style favs, challenging mama reflections and what has been influencing her look. I feel like we also need to talk about her effortlessly incredible hair. For reals... Also.. how adorable is it when she talks about her son Marshall's style? Of COURSE he wears flannels like dad! The cutest!
Introduce yourself and your business:
So funny, I don't really have any! In general, I try to go for a timeless look that I feel great in.
Since my husband is a surgery resident he works late, and I am alone with Marshall every night from 5-7:30 when I get him to bed. Although part of me loves that time together, being solo for bedtime is hard. I have to try really really hard to be patient with him.
Clean, Cool, Comfortable
