Meet Shell, a down-to-earth, Washington DC-based fashion blogger with a relatable and effortless style. She started her fashion blog, A Courageous Beauty, to encourage women to be true to themselves and confident in who they are. Shell’s serves modern, flawless, and economical looks on her Instagram page (@acourageousbeauty).

She aims to inspire her readers to repurpose items they already own, helping them to create a new, bold, and statement-making look for themselves. She believes that style is self-expression and should be explored and experimented without self-imposed boundaries.


Shell should absolutely be on your style radar for mastering the art of casual chic and elegant simplicity. She is seamlessly able to pair together classic and laid back outfits, with unique and on-trend details that help to consistently deliver a polished look. 

Her outfits are versatile enough to be worn from the office to after-work cocktails, to date night, and everywhere in between. As a mother to a young daughter, her outfits also prove to be functional and non-restrictive.


With a white cozy, teddy-bear coat, Shell manages to combine two of winter’s current outerwear trends in one distinctive look, proving you can be warm and stylish at the same time.

Styling a vintage t-shirt with ankle boots, and a moto jacket, casually thrown over her shoulder, Shell provides the blueprint for quintessential cool-girl style in this super chill outfit.

Shell demonstrates how skilled she is at striking a balance between being chic and still “slaying” with a casual outfit. While her long cardigan and jeans are low key, this look is instantly elevated with these unique velvet over-the-knee boots.
