I'm Kelssey, the blonde behind the blog! I'm a Marine wife, mom of a 2 year old, middle school teacher and lover of all things style-related. I currently live in sunny Southern California! Our military family has moved several times in recent years calling many states [Missouri, Oklahoma, Virginia & California] all home at one point! My blog, Styled Blonde, is a platform created to share my love of fashion, beauty, and travel. It is an extension of my primary platform, Instagram [@kelsslayt], that I created to share outfits on in 2012. My goal is to inspire women to try a new trend or re-mix an old, classic closet favorite all while sticking to a budget! Styled Blonde is for the everyday girl who wants to put together an outfit where fashionable meets functional and trendy meets affordable. I consider my audience as friends [& often chat with them in comments & DM's like I've known them for years! And some of them- I have!] and love to intentionally share new brands and styles I think they will love!
