Welcome to AYLEN.S, a personal style, health and life blog written by Karlie Stroup.  This blog was created to showcase inspiration in fashion, fitness, travel & last but certainly not least, REAL-LIFE stuff.  Stuff about motherhood, the good, the bad and the ugly yet honest truth.  Fashion and fitness have been a passion of Karlie’s since…well forever.  Posts are published three times a week, on average.  AYLEN.S, named after Karlie’s two daughters Ayla and Ayden, has allowed her to follow her fashion passion and re-create some of the best trends for the everyday gal in a fun, light-hearted way.  Followers will receive style inspiration and advice with some humor and stories along the way.


Karlie Stroup worked in the fashion industry throughout college and has always had a love for textiles, prints, fabrics and trends.  Neutral and classy is the perfect look for any occasion and that style will be showcased throughout the blog.  AYLEN.S was created as an outlet for Karlie’s love of fashion and life balance.  Karlie lives in Kansas City with her husband, Nate and their two girls, Ayla (6 going on 40) and Ayden, aka Bean.
