Meet Jess


Hey there! Happy to have you here on my blog. I'm Jess, the writer behind Silex in the City. I'm a Midwest gal with small-town roots, so grab an iced coffee and read along to learn more about me and my happenings as I balance life in the city along with life in the country.

I started this blog because I've been the journaling type since I was a young gal. So, this blog has been my online extension of that for a few years now. It's nothing swanky, but it's my little piece of web space where I catalog memories & bits of inspiration.

Why Silex In The City?

It seemed fitting for me as I grew up in the small town of Silex (population of 200) and now reside just outside the city of St. Louis (which is big to me) with a population of 300,000+. I'm a small town girl at heart and am immersing myself in all that this city has to offer {for now}.

What inspires me?

Home decor (new-ish homeowner here!) /  plants / local businesses & events /  party details & decor / craft beer & artisan cocktails / branding / the outdoors / thrifting /

What can you expect?

Posts surrounding >> my lifestyle /  happenings here in STL / adventures (locally, back on the farm, and all around) / lists (I'm addicted) / bits about my Etsy shop I run with my mom / celebrations of life's little moments

Oh, and the boy on my arm is my boyfriend..lovingly referred to here as the Cattleman. You can learn a bit more about him in this post.
