Jenna Lyons is just the best. I love everything about her. Her fearlessness to be herself. Her unique style. Her dedication to her work. Can we say… #girlcrush?
Sometimes when I’m having a bad day or feeling uninspired to to do great work, I read an article or watch an interview she has done. There’s simply never enough.
I gathered some of my favorite Jenna Lyons’ quotations to share!
“I eat a lot of ice cream, chocolate, and cookies, and I drink rosé champagne.” Yep, a girl after my own heart.
“Amazing things happen when you’re having fun and doing something you love.” Amen, sister… A-men.
“There’s this idea that everybody has to have everything right away… I wasn’t the superstar. I had to work for it. Really long hours.” Did you know that Jenna has worked at J. Crew for her entire professional life? Starting as an assistant and consistently working her way up from there. Now that is dedication!
A few more favorite quotations:
“You can’t fix yesterday. And don’t beat yourself up over it– the only reason to beat yourself up is if you don’t learn from it.”
“In the end, it goes back to just wanting to change things and do a little better. It’s a constant process of always asking, ‘How can we be better? How can we be better? How can we be better?’”
“I am so not an insider, and that is O.K. I might feel like one in very particular moments. But I don’t feel the same pressure I did.”
Who is your girl crush? Anyone else love Jenna Lyons too?
