Welcome, friends!

I’m Dayna – a passionate, silly, & sassy Austinite currently living in Chicago! Writing and photography have always been loves of mine, so I started Days By Day a few years ago as a creative outlet to pursue them better.

Now, I’ve totally fallen in love with blogging and the community it brings!

I like to dabble in posting about a variety of things – travels, style, good eats…the list goes on. This little ol’ space is one I’m proud of, where I can collect the things that interest and inspire me.

A few more tidbits –

graduated from The University of Texas in 2015 (hook ’em), and moved to Chicago for my first big girl job in advertising.

I got engaged to my best friend, Eric, in Paris when I visited Europe for the first time. We got married just over two years ago, it was the best!

Eric is also an amazing photographer – you can check out his stuff here!

about days by day

I’m obsessed with traveling, books, brunch, and coffee shops. I’m a lover of dance floors, photo booths, football, and Jesus. I make a mean grilled cheese and won’t ever complain about a cozy movie night in.

Take me out for Mexican food, surround me with pups, or make me laugh until I cry, and you’re on the way to my heart! Life goals include seeing the world and improving my cooking skills.

Please say hello in the comments of any post, follow along on Instagram, or reach out at daysbyday@gmail.com. Glad you are here!



A quick note – on the blog, you might come across affiliate links. In including these, I’m aiming to connect you with brands and products I love! I want you to feel like you’re getting the scoop from a real girlfriend.  All opinions are my own and come with no cost at all to you.
