Lindsay Veremis

Welcome to the blog! 

I’m Lindsay Veremis, a TV journalist turned communicator and new mom. Anchored In Elegance is a mix of my favorite things—fashion, home decorating, travel and storytelling. At first glance, you might be thinking this is a nautical-inspired site. While I certainly love boats, the color navy and the Great Lakes… Anchored In Elegance is actually a play on words. Literally, it speaks to my firm belief that true style is grounded in classic elegance (and that timeless looks can be affordable). “Anchored” also refers to my time as a morning news anchor.

As a new mom, I’ve stepped away from TV—at least temporarily—to raise my little guy. Mommy life is awesome, but I found my creative spark was dying. I certainly don’t miss waking up at 2:00 a.m. to get to work. However, I longed for the challenge of news, the ability to interact with an online community, and a platform to write about the things that intrigue me. Anchored In Elegance fills that void. In fact, it allows me to get more personal than ever and delve into topics I couldn’t cover before.

You’ll find a bit of everything here—design ideas, style inspiration, home projects, journalistic musings and lessons gleaned from the crazy TV industry. Thanks for checking it out!

—FAQs—

Family life?

I’ve been happily married for 5 years and have a beautiful little boy, Hudson. He is one-year-old now. We also have a super chill cat, Bela. I joke that he’s been in my life longer than my husband. Yes, Bela is a boy.

How tall are you?

I’ve been waiting to hit 5′ since middle school. Being a shorty was great when I was a cheerleader for the Wisconsin Badgers in college, but it can make sizing difficult when shopping. My quest for great petite fashion is one of the reasons I started this blog.

Tell us about your TV career?

I’ve worked as an anchor or reporter at stations in Eau Claire, Green Bay and Madison, Wisconsin, as well as in Lansing, Michigan. My last three jobs were anchoring mornings, meaning my alarm went off at 2 a.m. Our shows started at 4:30 a.m. You can learn more about my TV work here.

Where does your interest in design come from?

I got it from my momma! No seriously, my mother holds an interior design degree and my father has a landscape architecture degree. I grew up “vacationing” by going to home tours and open houses. Architectural Digest and Traditional Home were always on the coffee table.

Can you tell us more about your current decorating project?

I am fixing up a 1912 home that has both Victorian and American Foursquare influences. Thankfully, when we moved in the previous owner had done most of the heavy lifting (repairing crumbling walls, plumbing, electrical. We are just doing the fun stuff, personalizing/modernizing the interior and fixing up the outside. Although purchasing 23 new windows (none of them standard size) was not so fun, lol.

Hobbies?

Running and ballroom dance. Dancing has always made me smile. I dance the international latin styles (cha cha, rumba, samba, paso & jive).

Any other fun facts?

I can walk on my hands. It’s a great party trick left over from my years of gymnastics training and time as a collegiate cheerleader for the Wisconsin Badgers.
