Hello Darlings, My name is Hannay Yoder and I am the writer/luxury stylist of the Fashion Blog at www.hannayyoder.com I am a cat lover, coffee obsesser, vintage squirreler and social butterfly amongst many, many things! I wouldn’t have it any other way.
What inspired you to start your blog? How long have you been blogging?
I was inspired to start my blog by Lauren Conrad and Cara Loren and I’ve been blogging for 2 years. Growing up I had THE WORST sense of style and these ladies gave me hope! *laughs* Once I discovered that dressing does take effort and it’s an art, I fell completely in love with it. There is nothing more delightful than inspiring people through something as tasteful as clothing.
Describe your style? Where do you find your style inspiration?
My style is one word would definitely be “Luxurious” I love anything with a princess style, tulle skirt, high heels, fur coat, you name it. If it’s luxurious, you’ll find it on my person. I glean most of my style inspiration from Lauren Conrad. She amazes me with how she mixes the perfect amount of girly with practical and chic!
What is a timeless fashion piece you can’t live without?
That’s a tough question! My goodness. It is a perfect toss-up between my string of pearls and my classic black pumps. It doesn’t matter what you’re wearing, a dress or a pair of casual jeans, a pair of pumps can take you from frumpy to fabulous in an instant! If you don’t have a pair of classic black pumps… you can sneak away for a bit to get some as long as you come back.
What are some of your favorite Fall 2016 Trends?
Ah, my favorite fall trend of them all has to be the off-the-shoulders (bardot) look. I love how effortlessly sexy and feminine the style is. I don’t care if it’s freezing outside, I like my bardot tops and I probably style them a bit too often. Haha! i also adore, adore, adore the OTK (ove the knee) boot style. It’s more dynamic when it comes to a statement, but I do adore a good statement.
One piece of advice you would give to any start up bloggers?
I know they say, “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery” but do not let that allow you to lose yourself. If you have a “wacky” sense of style, go for it! If you have a “hippie” sense of style go with that! Be you, be unapologetically you! Don’t pay a piece of attention to the negativity, focus on shining and being confident in who you are!
Favorite place to work on your blog? Creative Space?
My favorite place to work on my blog is in my cozy hole (my bedroom) I am constantly updating it or rearranging it to fit my mood/style so I never run out of inspiration. My bedroom is my favorite place in the entire world and that’s ok!
