Hi I’m Veronika!I started Girl & Closet in the spring of 2011 as a way to connect with other fashion loving gals as well as discover my own personal style, little did I know, it would become my career just a year later. My background includes visual presentation, fashion photography and styling. So clearly, this is the perfect fit!
While in the early days, Girl & Closet was strictly centered around style. Now I love to share a little more on lifestyle, home and beauty. My hubby & I (he’s a film & TV actor) live on the west coast with our Eskipoo pup and a too sweet rescue kitty named Sunshine.
When I’m not blogging, you’ll find me dreaming up new adventures, scouring my fave shops, taking our pup to the pier, or grabbing coffee with my husband & friends in our little heritage town. I’m passionate about creating meaningful moments, supporting others in their dreams and believe life is best when lived to the fullest!

Frequently Asked Questions
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 inspiration. Luckily, I stumbled on a few personal style blogs, and that was that, I was instantly hooked. If you’re considering starting your own? Do it! It’s 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 statement shoe 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!
