Off Duty / On Style

I am one of those crazy people that likes to have a book in their hands.

Hi, I’m Kelsey Knepler. A born and raised Wisconsin native with a passion for fashion, beauty, and soaking up as much life as I can.

Currently, I am a junior at the University of Wisconsin-Madison majoring in Communication Arts and Theatre and Drama. I am also a Style Guru and Editorial intern for CollegeFashionista, brand ambassador for Intern Queen, fashion writer for Moda magazine at UW-Madison, and a staff writer for Her Campus-Wisconsin Chapter. When I’m not writing, I love to read magazines as well as online content as I scroll through my social media platforms. I also love getting out in the world and embrace as many opportunities as possible. I am always trying to get out of my comfort zone and you will rarely find me at home on a Friday night. Adventures are just around the corner, all you have to do is get them (or make them)!

Plenty of fashion and life inspiration ideas are to come, but for now, follow me on my social media platforms!
