Meet Wesley Day


Let’s get right to it. What’s with the name?

My blog’s title, “Have A Wesley Day” comes from my full name, which is Wesley Day Shaw. (You’ll come to learn that I’m a pretty big fan of a good pun.) Let’s be honest here, that blog name practically wrote itself. I didn’t have a choice! With a traditionally male name, my name has become a popular topic of conversation over the years and one of my favorite things that I feel makes me most unique.

So, hi! It’s nice to meet you.

Instead of laying out my entire resume for you, I’ll give you the abridged version so we can get to know each other a little better! I’m a recent graduate of The University of Alabama (can I get a Roll Tide?) who majored in Advertising. An ambitious little 16 year old me started her own photography business in high school, which would lead to a passion to last a lifetime. This love for photography is what eventually stemmed into what you’re reading right now, which is a synthesis of my passions in photography, fashion, and telling a story through creative direction. Have A Wesley Day focuses a lot on fashion, but more importantly, the movers and shakers who are making a difference in the world while looking fabulous.

I believe in eating well and traveling often.

I believe in rocking white after Labor Day.

I believe in choosing joy every day, no matter the circumstance.

I believe in transparency, not perfection.

I believe in high heels and college degrees.

I believe in dressing for the job you want, not the one you have.

I also believe in getting off of your butt and going out to get that job you want.

Work hard. Stay humble. Have a Wesley Day.
