About Me


Hi! I’m Kelly, and welcome to my blog!

Novellus et Penicullus translates to “The Young and Stylish”, and my goal is to provide life, classy and preppy style, and travel tips and guides for the young professional. My blog also will feature past DIY craft projects and recipes, as well as my new projects!

I am currently a doctoral student at Florida State University pursuing my Ph.D. in Human Development and Family Sciences. I started this blog because I am surrounded by colleagues and future professionals in the college setting who love style, or aren’t really sure how to style themselves in this day in age, and I wanted to provide insight, shed light, and start a conversation around how to dress classy and trendy for young professionals in the work environment.

I am happily married to my handsome husband, Mike who is finishing law school (it’s a race to the finish!). He may be a guy, but he does have a great sense of fashion, so I will also be sharing life and style posts for gentlemen, too!

When we are not busy with school, we share a wonderful life of adventures in the South with our absolutely crazy and loving German Shorthaired Pointer, Cotton (You’ll be reading about him quite frequently, I’m sure!). Cotton is more famous than I could ever hope to be, so I also have to manage his Instagram daily (@cotton_gsp). I also am co-owner of a dog accessory company, Prep on Point, that carries bows for the classy ladies and bow ties for the dapper gentlemen, be sure to check it out!

Not only am I busy with finishing school, teaching, being a wife, keeping up with Cotton, blogging, and running a small business, I absolutely love crafting, organizing, music, and traveling. I plan on sharing my projects and travels on my blog, too!
