My name is Kayley Heeringa and I am the founder and primary writer of Sidewalk Ready.
After a friend proposed the idea of fashion blogging to me, I was intrigued. I was already fulfilling several of my passions through my three jobs as a hair stylist, photographer, and retail store employee, but I thought it would be fun to begin a hobby that incorporated all of these interests … enter Sidewalk Ready.
Throughout the archives of SWR, you will find hundred of affordable outfits suitable for everyday women, hair and makeup tutorials, home decorating ideas, and the occasional peek into my life.
As I mentioned before, I am a hairstylist, and work from a detached studio located at my home. My husband and I also own a photography business, Kai Heeringa Photography. Between those two jobs and Sidewalk Ready, I have the perfect amount of time committed to work and to play.
Kai and I were married in 2007 and are currently living in our dream house in Grand Rapids, MI, where we were both born and raised. We have a dog, Shanty, and a cat, Epworth, who I lovingly refer to as “The Muppets”.
I am glad that you found Sidewalk Ready! If I can inspire you to find joy and confidence in what you choose to wear, how you style your hair, and the space you live in, then I have achieved my goal.
Welcome. Enjoy. Stay awhile.
