Hi everyone!  I’m Kristina, the writer of the blog MissStinaXO and its coordinating Instagram page.  I love to post about all things fashion, preppy and girlie!  I would love for you all to check it out and send me a message; I love to chat with my readers and followers.  Blogging has been such an amazing outlet and a great way to meet some amazing people!  I feel truly blessed in life.

Let me start by telling you a little bit about myself.  First off, I’m not Southern; I was born in Southwestern Connecticut and moved to Southeastern Massachusetts when I was 10.  I was a Psychology major in college and then went on to law school.  I recently became a lawyer…officially!  I am now 27 years old and am getting married in less than two months… crazy!  I am a beach bum and shopaholic but my loved ones are my life.

Even though I’m not Southern by birth, I have always appreciated the Southern lifestyle.  I love God, preppy fashion, dressing up, family, the outdoors (I’m not afraid to get dirty) and my fiancé’s Jeep Wrangler.  There is nothing better than a summer day with friends and family, the top down in the Jeep just cruising!  I am lucky to live near Cape Cod and the beautiful beaches that come with living in this area of the country.  Being that the ocean and the Jeep make up my favorite pass times, I have learned to combine them.

In my town, we have a beach which spans for miles.  There are portions of the beach that can be driven on so you can choose your very own spot in the sand that is secluded from the rest of the world.  There is nothing better to me than taking the Jeep out onto the dunes and parking for the day!  It doesn’t matter what is going on in life, spending that time on the beach with friends and family makes the world right for that moment.  To me, that’s the essence of being a Southern Doe, being true to what you love and living that life!

Thanks for chatting with me!
