The Kelli Chronicles is a lifestyle blog produced by Kelli Bussan, an ever-changing, outspoken Texan living in the too perfect New England town of New Canaan, Connecticut. Part fashion blog, part cookbook, part everyday life stories, it’s the ultimate destination for city ladies and suburbanites looking to book their calendars and discover something new.

Follow us for funny stories of raising two teenage girls, getting better with age (and gray hairs everywhere), healthy and cheat day recipes, fitness trends, and most importantly: what to wear to it all. With a focus on dressing appropriately (think too short skirts, or how to get the legs for them) we find what to wear whether you’re heading to a black tie affair or just grabbing dinner with your girl squad (or chaperoning teenage girls) – we’ve got you covered!

And always remember, life only gets better with a little seasoning…

Kelli Bussan: Creative director, wife, mom, driver to two teenage girls, home chef, lover of music, bold jewelry and finding what makes you feel good!!! Motto: If it makes you happy then how can it be bad?

I am happiest when I’m surrounded by my family around the holidays or vacationing in the caribbean or Aspen.

Style: Wearing pieces that make you feel good

Live: travel is good for the soul. Even the shortest trips with can get you recharged and create the best memories 

Nourish: cooking is either a source of fun and experimentation or stress and last-minute hustle; depending on the day and the mood of my two teenage girls

Play: fitness to me is an on-going adventure. I love finding new classes, meeting new instructors and learning about strength, conditioning and being healthier. Currently I am working out with a trainer and learning how to box. I freakin’ love it!!! Strong is the new skinny

The key to life is good music and knowing which restaurants have the nicest bathrooms
