Sweater and shorts outfit for spring.

I’m Ivana– a Birmingham native who’s still here, 25 years later. The Southern Style Diaries strives to showcase my love of all things southern. Find out how to throw the perfect back porch party, how to wear overalls without looking like your cousin Ed, and the best way to rock a red lip.

I’m a news reporter by day, where I cover crime and local court for AL.com and The Birmingham News. See my professional work here.

My favorite things are my dogs (all dogs, actually), tacos, and a good T.J. Maxx.

Connect with me on social media to keep up with my day-to-day life—sometimes you’ll even catch some breaking news tweeted there from the Magic City, as we call it! Please check back weekly for new posts! Make a request for posts on social media or in the comment section, and I will be happy to look into it.

Drop me a line for any questions, or just to say hi!
