I am always honored to present to you, my friends, our She’s Got Style global fashionistas. However, today’s stylish beauty holds a special place in my heart. As a card carrying proud military mama, the opportunity to feature a brave, strong, military veteran gives me goosebumps and a heart filled with gratitude.

You see, Tonja is not your ordinary stylish fashionista. In her military career, Tonja never had to give a thought to her OOTD, guaranteed it would be camo and include the color green. Flash forward to Tonja’s post-military career as a blogger and certified glamorous fashionista.

Now, I proudly turn it over to our interview with Tonja.

FCO50: We love that your style choices range from elegant, to casual chic and everything in between. What’s the secret to your signature style?

TONJA: Thank you. The secret of my signature style is simplicity. I wear a lot of dresses and jumpsuits. I love “one stop shop” outfits. I adore a simple piece with an interesting embellishment. I accessorize my outfits with a pair of earrings, wedding ring, fitbit, and a smile! My motto is simple chic and effortless style.

FCO50: What is the one outfit combination that always works for you?

TONJA: One combination that ALWAYS works for me (that’s not a dress or jumpsuit) is a wide legged pair of slacks, a turtleneck, and a killer pair of heels.

FCO50: If you had to give fashion advice to other women with your beautiful shape, what would it be?

TONJA: Tailor, tailor, tailor…it is difficult to find clothing off the rack to fit both my waist and hips, also I am somewhat vertically challenged. 🙂 So I frequently have my trousers altered. Another important tip is to invest in some great shapewear and undergarments.

FCO50: What are your go-to make up and anti aging products?

TONJA: My go-to for makeup and anti aging product is MAC and good old fashion Witch Hazel as an astringent. Not only does MAC have phenomenal makeup, but they carry a green gel cleanser and oil free moisturizer that works extremely well for me. I am also beginning a love affair with Maybelline and Fenty Beauty.

My motto is simple chic and effortless style ~ Tonja


I hail originally from the great state of Texas. I am the mother of two, a beautiful daughter and an evenly handsome Shih Tzu. I am married to the greatest man in the world, who sometimes serves as my photographer.

My life’s work is being an educator. I absolutely love being a teacher! However, my desire is to be known as a proud and unapologetically woman of faith.

A fun fact, my husband, daughter, and I are all veterans of the United States Military.

In my spare time, I love to read, shop, exercise, travel, share laughs with friends, and of course, blog. I have never met a camera that I did not like!
