Hi there! Welcome to Rhyme & Reason! Based in Charleston, South Carolina, Rhyme & Reason is a place to spark inspiration, encourage creativity, and share a love of fashion. Named for two characters from my favorite childhood book, The Phantom Tollbooth, my site is a place where I share everything from reading guides to my personal style to my travel musings.

about jillian

Hi there, I’m Jillian Eversole! I am the creator of Rhyme & Reason and am overjoyed you stopped by! I grew up in Phoenix, Arizona but I have called a few different places home. I attended the University of Colorado (Go Buffs!) during which time I lived in Boulder, Colorado for four years. In the summer of 2010, while interning in Los Angeles, my best friend introduced me to her college friend, Edwin. I thought he was the cutest summer fling in the world!

After the summer, we couldn’t quit each other so we dated long distance for the remainder of our college years. I graduated in 2012 and moved to Los Angeles where I received my teaching credential and a Masters in Teaching before working as a Kindergarten teacher. Edwin and I dated while we lived in Los Angeles and got engaged in May 2016. In September 2017, we moved to Charleston, South Carolina together and were married in Charleston in October 2017 under a beautiful live oak tree cloaked in Spanish moss. We bought our first house in 2018 and happily live there with our sweet pup, Maybelle.

Edwin and I love to travel to see the world and to get to know different cities, cultures, and sceneries. A few favorite destinations: New York City, Nantucket, Jackson Hole, Vermont, and Harbour Island. Fuel your wanderlust with my Travel Guides!
The One
I’m the happiest girl in the world because I get to share my life with Edwin! In that spirit, I spilled 10 reasons why I knew he was the one.
Charleston
Edwin and I moved from Los Angeles to Charleston in September 2017. We feel so fortunate to call this little southern seaside city our home! We bought our first house in 2018 and restored/remodeled it in 2019 before moving in summer 2019! Discover our Charleston favorites!
Wedding
Edwin and I were married in Charleston, South Carolina in October 2017. We said ‘I Do!’ surrounded by all our loved ones under the most beautiful live oak tree! It was everything I dreamed of and more!

R&R Start
Rhyme & Reason started in 2011 as a fun project in college. I shared things like music playlists and my favorite magazine editorials. I took a little break from blogging in grad school but picked Rhyme & Reason back up in 2014.
