A little bit about Kaylee…
Let’s get to know each other! I currently reside in Fort Wayne, Indiana with my wonderful boyfriend, Brian, new puppy Autumn and sassy cat Luna. I grew up in Iowa and always knew I wanted to work in fashion. Seriously, ask my parents — they had an ambitious 7th grader on their hands who had already picked her college and major. I graduated with an Apparel Merchandising and Journalism degree and headed to Madison, Wisconsin to work as a merchandiser. As much as I love Madison (I could talk about it for days), I found that merchandising wasn’t the right fit and ended up moving to Indiana for a job opportunity in Social Media. I currently work on the Social Media team for a fashion brand in Fort Wayne and absolutely love it!
What do I do when I’m not living and breathing Instagram and Pinterest? I love hot yoga, road trips and hole-in-the-wall Mexican restaurants. Also, ice cream. All of the ice cream.
