Hi, and thanks for dropping by!! My name is Jillian, but I typically go by Jill. I’m a Long Island native, currently living in Hoboken, New Jersey. I do however frequent NYC for my full-time 9-5 job in software operations. Being from such a creative and inspiring city has always encouraged me to follow my dreams.
In 2015, Pink and Polka Dots was born as a hobby/side passion project of mine. The blogging world was intimidating at first. However, over the past few years, I’ve had so much fun connecting with other bloggers in not only my metropolitan area, but in other places too. Some of which have become favorite cities to visit, and good friends! Since 2015, Pink and Polka Dots has evolved from a side project, to part of my every day life, and I couldn’t be more excited to see where it takes me next!
I’ve always had a passion for fashion and beauty. Most of my friends and family would describe me as a fashionista and shopping addict. More times than I can keep track of, family, friends, co-workers and even complete strangers would compliment me on something I was wearing. They always wanted to know “where did you get that?!”
Here on PAPD, you’ll find most content is fashion and beauty related, but I also like to incorporate lifestyle, men’s fashion, DIY, and wedding. I try to post on a consistent once a week basis, and daily via Instagram.
My main focus on PAPD is to showcase what I actually buy and wear, season to season. My goal is to provide fashion inspiration that can effortlessly and affordably translate into your own closet. Content requests are always welcome.
Thank you so much for following along with me on this journey, your support means the world to me!
