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!

People are always asking me about my story. The truth is my story began as a young girl laying on my mom’s bed flipping through the pages of Vogue. I envisioned a life of fashion, design and expression — I grew up but my dreams didn’t. I moved to South Florida, opened the boutique and struggled through the obstacles of owning a business. The early days were hard, but I took a deep breathe, swallowed my fears, and woke up the next day to do it all over again. I had to dig deep and eventually the store started gaining traction. There was and still is this constant competition within myself to be better than I was yesterday. Some people live for the day they don’t have to do anything; I live for the day when I can wake up and realize everything I’m doing matters.

​There are plenty of highs and lows being an entrepreneur. And I’ll be proudly sharing them as a guest speaker at the screening of Dream, Girl, Thursday, December 8th at The Classic Gateway Theatre. Join me and other female entrepreneurs for a night of networking and the film screening of Dream, Girl featuring extraordinary individuals that live life intentionally, create great social impact, and bring inspiration to others.

How did you get to where you are today?
Lots of hard work and sleepless nights!! Fortunately, I love what I do. My passion is what drives me to never give up. It’s the reason I wake up everyday grateful to be able to live out my dream of owning a fashion company.

What is your elevator pitch on what you do?
I make women feel pretty. Love dressing them in colorful prints they can dress up or down and take with them on their life travels.

How do you define success? Do you consider yourself successful?
Success is being able to do what you love. I consider myself blessed.

What have been the most rewarding things in your career thus far?
Seeing women wearing my designs. It stills wows me every time I see a woman in one of my pieces. It’s that pinch me I’m dreaming moment, she’s wearing YK!

What have been some of your mistakes? What have you learned from them?
Not trusting my gut. It’s there for a reason and you should always follow it.

img_3760

 

What do you still want to achieve personally and/or professionally?
So much! I learn something new every day and incorporate it into my life. I’m loving all of the new technologies in social media and online shopping. Anything that lets me talk directly to my customer like Snapchat and Instagram Stories.

What has been your greatest inspiration?
My mother. She is the strongest woman I know and she’s taught me how to be strong, loving, and the best role model to those around me.

When was the last time you cried from something provoked by work?
I cry over spilled milk. I’m a softie! I cry when I see sweet comments left on my Instagram.

How has your career affected your personal life/relationships?
It has taught me how to be a professional multi-tasker. I’ve learned how to balance work and play.
Most importantly, it’s taught me the value of time. I don’t have much time in my day, so if I am having dinner, happy hour, or family time, I like to make sure it’s quality time with the people I love.

Have you ever thought about giving up? What provokes these thoughts?
Never! It would make me completely depressed. I’ve worked way too hard to make women happy in the clothes they’re wearing to give up. I would feel like I’m letting the whole world down.

What causes you anxiety/sleepness nights?
In the past it was late shipments and random company issues. Now, I’ve learned to just LET GO. Embrace the storms and rainbows. If it’s meant for you, it will be yours. The universe has a way of bringing it all together.
