Jeanette Johnson on Fashion and Faith

By Kelsey Ogletree, July 25, 2017

Jeanette Johnson J.'s Everyday Fashion bookWhen her first book, “J’s Everyday Fashion and Faith: Personal Style with Purpose,” comes out Oct. 3, it will symbolize one part of Jeanette Johnson’s purpose fulfilled. “I think everything up to this point was leading me to write a book,” remarks the blogger, who started her site, J’s Everyday Fashion, in 2010, focused on stylish, colorful and affordable looks for everyday women.

But the blog almost didn’t happen. Originally from Kansas, Johnson was raised in a very conservative Christian household. “Fashion wasn’t something you spent time or money on,” she says. “The message almost became, ‘fashion is bad.’”

Like creative passions do, however, fashion kept calling, and Johnson has been fortunate to run her blog as a full-time gig since 2012. Now she hosts style seminars around the country and also speaks at conferences and events. Johnson shares how she got to this point.

How did your book deal come to be?

I was scheduled to do a style seminar at a church in Orlando as a favor to a friend. I do seminars all over the country, but I was so nervous for this one. To help sort through those feelings, I wrote a blog post called, “Fashion and Faith – Can They Coexist?” I got a call from a publisher a week later.
