I'm Kelsey! The writer,  photographer and travel lover behind this lifestyle blog. Here we celebrate the beauty of  balance in everyday life, without the requirement of real pants.  And cheese plates. Always cheese plates.

All my summer posts are quite late to game.  Though I would like to blame the move to Montana, career switch, and multiple vacations for the lack of proper timing over here.  Truth be told I would write about summer style and to-do’s all year long if I could manage it.  Including of course, summer […]


It feels so good to be back here clacking away. I completely meant to blog while we were on vacation in Mexico but the move to a new state threw me for quite a loop!  We didn’t have a dishwasher or stove in our apartment in Montana and were living in a sea of boxes, […]


Well we are officially in Montana! And while I already am little impressed with our new state’s beauty, I’ve been missing my finished closet back in Laramie.  L finished this brick + copper beauty one weekend before we moved and I so wish I had more time with the new set up… but I also […]


With the terms ‘curated’ and ‘capsule’ in everyone’s clothing vocabulary now, an ‘essential’ surely is as well.  And I seem to be adding to the long list of ways to describe your closet including my own (and favorite 😉 ) – well loved.  I’ve already talked about my well loved wardrobe essentials, but I don’t […]


With my year of less last year, I feel a bit ahead of the curve (for once) as I have been practicing living for what I truly value for some time now. (Though I know I can always use a refresher and have been loving Chasing Slow!)  My only worry with minimalism becoming so mainstream […]


I have quite a bit of style posts saved up and realized that maybe I should just share them before I forget about them!  Plus you are getting another peek at my closet that is almost done 🙂 L has been working on it for a while and it’s coming together so gorgeously that I can’t […]


I’ve never really considered myself to be very fashionable.  I’m much more content saying I know my own style.  Simplicity and classic feminine lines have always dominated my closet.  Plus, for years “statement” pieces never seemed to be something my closet needed, as my go to uniform was jeans and an unique shirt.  But slowly I’ve realized […]


A couple of times people have commented on my traveling style and it always makes me smile.  Not necessarily because I consider myself to be super fashionable, but more because my main goal for travel is comfort + convenience and if that happens to come across as stylish I’m more than happy to embrace that description. I […]
