Carrie Sims is a Southern girl who brings to fashion what her current home, Memphis, brings to music…diversity. This freelance hairstylist, wife, and mother of two explains, “My style is like my life. It’s a lot of different things, but it’s all me. I like to think that I am able to take the best parts from all that fashion has to offer whether it be earthy or chic, soulful or playful, trendy or classic.”

Purple swing top and gold necklace from Forever21. Skinny jeans from BP at Nordstrom. Athena Alexander wedge sandals from Nordstom. Brown tee by Shade. Diesel cuff bracelet purchased at Down East Outfitters.

Carrie’s individual style is just that: individual. She is not afraid to experiment and let her personality show in the clothes she wears. “I wear what I like for no other reason than I just like it. I love the confidence I feel when I’m rocking a look that I really love.”

And what is Carrie’s advice to anyone who loves an outfit, but feels like they can’t pull it off? With encouragement she exclaims, ”You get that outfit and you rock it!”

Carrie was one of my sister’s best friends in high school. I haven’t seen her in years so this was so fun to see her in *Jen* Magazine! Carrie has always rocked her own personality from her hair to her attire. She has always been true to herself and her smile reflects that of someone who is honest, caring, passionate and truly soulful. I’m not surprised in the least that she is featured here.
PS. I love those white Nine Wests!

Carrie was in the same married student ward as my husband and I and we love her little son Jaxon- she dresses him just as well as herself! Hey Carrie- It’s Emily Lewis- fun to see you! I’d love to see your kids now! I have one too-
