Meet Kaylee McCullough, everyone! She is a 26 year old fashion blogger in the Middle Georgia area. While Macon is not exactly one of the fashion capitals of the world, this stylish Georgia peach is sure to put this southern city on the map. You might remember Kaylee and her husband Bobby from the Take A Chance on Romance video series from earlier this year. I have enjoyed getting to know this beautiful couple over the past few years and wanted to give you all a chance to do the same. Kaylee answered some questions about her fashion blog below but you can get to know the McCullough family even better by visiting her blog: Kaylee Daily.

kdd1. What motivated you to take your personal style and turn it into a fashion blog for all to see?

I have always been a huge fan of Kendi Everyday. I really enjoyed seeing her share new outfits throughout the week and thought to myself ‘I could do this’ and then ‘I should do this.’ My friends and family were super supportive and before I knew it Kaylee Daily had become a very fun and extremely colorful part of my life.

I think that my love for sequins, bright colors, and ban.do really sets me and my blog a part. It has always been important to me that my style reflects who I am. I never want to conform to the styles of others or blindly follow trends. Kaylee Daily is not like any other fashion blog out there right now because it is 100% me.

1403533856.667764.IMG_2883-682x10243. Do you have a style icon? Who inspires you the most?

That’s easy. Jen Gotch, the founder and creative director of ban.do, is everything I could ever hope to be. Seriously, I want to be her when I grow up. I haven’t loved something as much as ban.do since I got my first My Little Pony as a young girl.

cover4. What is your fashion motto?

“Forget the rules. If you like it, wear it.”

1395414737.583085.IMG_2098-682x10245. What are three essential elements for a Kaylee Daily original outfit?

At least one pom-pom from ban.do (duh!) + prints, prints, and more prints + lots of color!

Processed with VSCOcam with k2 preset6. What season do you enjoy dressing for the most?

I absolutely love cold weather! I have so much fun in the fall and winter finding new ways to create layers that are as cute as they are warm. Hats and scarves are also a plus!

kd67. How would you give this gardener a look that is garden chic?

Floral prints + rain boots + a ban.do twist scarf to dazzle up your do!

kd38. What advice would you give to someone looking to start a fashion blog of their own?

Have fun! I have wasted too much time worried about whether or not everyone would like what I do. I have learned that to be yourself and to love what you do are the two most important things.

Take A Chance With Romance.Still019Like any holiday or special occasion, what makes Valentine’s Day so exciting is all the anticipation leading up to it. It is those little moments of unexpected sweetness that make your loved-ones all ooey-gooey inside. With only a few days left before February 14th makes its grand entrance, putting all you lovers on display, it is time to start busting out the big guns.

Ladies, show your handsome fellow that all of his hard work has not gone unnoticed by packing him a special Pre-Valentine’s Day lunch with all of his favorite eats. But don’t just let the food do all the talking—put your appreciation onto paper with a handwritten love letter that is sweeter than any dessert.

Take A Chance With Romance.Still000

You are probably familiar with the old saying that suggests the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. While I do believe this to be of some truth, what about us women? We like to eat too! Don’t get me wrong, diamonds and pearls are much appreciated, but a girl has got to eat. Am I right, ladies? And breakfast in bed—that might just be our favorite way to get our fuel for the day. So, there you have it, gentlemen: the best way to reserve a special spot in your ladies heart—start at the stomach. But don’t forget the flowers! Flowers come in at a very close second in the race for your woman’s heart; especially, for yours truly.

I am thrilled to be sharing our very first giveaway with all of you—a brand-spanking-new pair of Hunter Rain Boots.

Carmen in Red Hunter Boots

It is no secret that, as a gardener, I absolutely adore my pair. They are perfect for quality time spent in the garden. They are also a great friend to have—and a great splash of color—on those grey, rainy days. However, these beauties are just as much of an accessory as they are a necessity. Women all over are finding fun, fashion-forward ways of incorporating Hunter rain boots into their daily style.
