Hi there! I'm Brooke Williams, a certified wardrobe stylist-turned lifestyle blogger and mother. I moved back to my hometown of Asheville, NC in late 2015 and started The Tony Townie as a way to marry my passion (fashion & style) with my purpose (motherhood). This blog is all about "life in balance": marrying the interests of today's busy woman/mom with her resources and abilities. I believe it's important that all of our identities -- woman, wife, mother, careerist -- exist together as part of a whole without one bulldozing the rest. To me, that is when we're able to truly "have it all!" Through honest conversation and creative imagery, I aim to connect with the modern woman whose pursuit to "have it all" is met with humor and realism...because we're all running on coffee, wine, and dry shampoo!
When it comes to fashion, I love creating wearable outfit ideas from affordable fashion mixed with forever pieces. My outfit posts are rooted in realism to reflect the way we move through our day-to-day lives. I'm constantly inspired by anything that makes living life in balance that much easier: quick and easy recipes, shopping steals and deals, budget buys, and new adventures to take with your family! You can find many of my favorite sources of inspiration on my Pinterest page, or get to know my family and me on a daily basis on Facebook or (my personal fave) Instagram.
I adore partnering both with large brands and small businesses, as well as with local designers and creatives. If you would like to collaborate, or partner on a styled shoot, please send me an email at email@example.com.
As a professional wardrobe and bridal stylist, I've worked closely with my clients on everything from engagement photos and bridal portraits, to shopping trips and total wardrobe makeovers. I've acted as style director on commercial campaigns for Alesya Bags, NHL Shop & Fanatics, and Medifast Dream Makeovers. My work has been featured in popular digital wedding publications such as Ruffled, Borrowed & Blue, and Southern Weddings, as well as on Shutterfly's holiday card interactive and in print.

Thanks for stopping by! 💗 Brooke
