Name: Audrey Leary (@homerunballerina)
Where you live: Northwest Corner of Connecticut
Your job: I’m a professionally trained pastry chef, and my husband and I run a tiny dinner restaurant, but I’ve also started doing some interior design work part-time.
Q.Tell me a little about your journey sharing your style on instagram.
A. I really started posting on a semi-regular basis when the pandemic started. Before March 2020 we had two restaurants, and one was a bakery/breakfast/lunch place where I worked probably 50 or so hours a week, so I just didn’t have time for much social media. When the pandemic hit I found myself at home with lots of creative energy and nowhere to put it, so I started posting outfits, mostly to keep myself from just being bummed out in sweatpants every day. I found a great slow fashion community on instagram and it really helped my sanity in the last couple of years.
