Why I am Here

Thanks for joining me!

Welcome to The Financial (Fashion) Planner! I’ve had the itch to create a blog for the past few years but until recently, I  didn’t feel like I had much to say.

Let’s start with introductions, my name is Maureen and I am a financial planner with a firm in Chicago, IL, and I will start out by saying that I love my job! I am a finance nerd through and through and love talking with clients, friends and family members about personal finances, staying organized with finances, budgeting…you get the idea.

The theme of this blog is to combine two of my favorite things; finance and fashion but with an emphasis on finance. My goal with this blog is to find a happy compromise between staying fashionable and up on trends while not breaking the bank. If we are being honest, this is an area I struggle with all the time, lusting after some bloggers designer bag but also wanting to make sure my future is funded. It is my objective to help my follows build a professional wardrobe and 401(k) balance that they can be proud of.
