About Me

I began this blog in a desperate need to have a place to be completely girly. You see, I travel the country with NASCAR as the Director of Marketing and Communication for an XFINITY Series team. Additionally, my spare time is typically spent taking in the local racing at small tracks in the area. Heels at a racetrack = “pit lizard”, “waffle belly”, “racer-chaser”… you get the point. I hated seeing my closet full of nice clothes sitting unworn. And the web developer in me was yearning to design something girly… I’m talking stripes, sparkles, leopard-print, the whole nine! It terrified me to put my style, thoughts, and suggestions out on the interwebs but, as Sylvia Plath said, “the worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt”.

I’ve always felt that the older we get the more comfortable we are being ourselves. My style emerged as an outward expression of that in recent years. I had spent years combing through blogs, growing a deeper appreciation for the risks they take and how the paradoxical pieces seemed to work. I felt that Cort In Session could challenge me and ground me as a navigate my twenties. I also focus on making the most out of my style on a budget. Rarely does anything on the blog exceed $100.

Beyond that, I’m hoping to inspire other girls who are considering starting their own blogs. I’ve dedicated this section to teaching you all that I have learned by trial and error in hopes of saving you the same grief. Cort In Session has brought me so much joy and I know your own site will do the same. Thank you for following along and I hope you enjoy!

  1. Hello Cortney,
    Loved your pic wearing J Crew colorful stripe dress. I’m trying to order that dress but need your help with size. For ur reference I’m 5’5″ and 105 lb, should i order xxs to have the fit like you? or xs would be okay? Don’t want it to be too tight. Pls advise, Thank you! =D

    • Minji,
