Show Notes-

Today on Cultivating the Lovely, MacKenzie Koppa has a conversation with Jennifer L. Scott, author of the Madame Chic book series. Jennifer is also a wife and homeschooling mother to four children. Together she and MacKenzie discuss all things cultivating loveliness and living with intention at home, including:

  • The fun, unique connection Jennifer and MacKenzie have across the miles
  • A little background on how Lessons from Madame Chic came about
  • America’s culture of bucking tradition and tendency to be too casual
  • The difference between Madame Chic and Madame Bohemienne
  • How Jennifer is trying to keep living by her principles while “in the trenches” of motherhood


  • Remembering to dress for the way you want to feel instead of just being in survival mode
  • Our children notice the way we dress and take care of ourselves
  • The change in levels of professionalism in dress
  • Being intentional about making mealtimes beautiful and relaxing as much as possible

I just try my best to work with what I have. -Jennifer L. Scott
