About Me


The Traveling BlondeThe Traveling Blonde is a page you visit when you need to see something pretty or if you want to be inspired to dress up, travel, and dream.  I have been so blessed in this life and want to share with you what I love: fashion! On The Traveling Blonde, fashion doesn’t just end with your outfit. It extends to your home, your workspace and your mind. Feeling good is 100% just as important as looking good and I hope you find that to be true as you peruse this site.

Who is The Traveling Blonde?

Hello, I’m Emily, a short time blogger and long time dreamer. I grew up in a one stoplight town in Colorado. We used the mountains to tell our directions and spent our weekends playing outside. I attended the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, CO. I was a collegiate track athlete and earned my B.S. in Management. Upon graduating I was selected to attend pilot training in Enid, OK and earned my dream assignment: flying the C-17. I now live in Tacoma, WA with my husband and two adorable dogs who I lovingly refer to as “The Girls.” Jared and I are lucky enough to have the same job and find ourselves chasing each other around the globe quite often. Through my travels I have visited 31 countries and chased countless sunsets. I’ve enjoyed my fair share of interesting wines and cultural cuisines and I absolutely love my job.

About MeI want to share my love of fashion and travel with more than just myself, so here I am starting my blog more motivated than ever.  My favorite pastimes include decorating our home, girls nights, playing in the kitchen and staying fit. So, here’s to hoping you will take this journey with me as I help you fill your closet with items that make you FEEL great and look nice too. If you want to get to know a little more about me, head on over to my 10 Things You Don’t Know About Me post.

Happy reading and thanks for stopping by!
