We’re still on cloud nine since announcing our Style Team | Season 1, but can you blame us?! We can’t wait to see what fashions and #BoutiqueStyle stories these women bring to the table! But before these fashionistas start in on collaborating with our member boutiques and brands, we wanted to make sure you got to know each of our Style Team | Season 1 members on a more personal level!
Tonight, we’re going to start by introducing you to Hannah Hogner, a southern fashionista, with a heart bigger than the state of Texas!
Hey, Hannah! Tell us a little bit about where you’re from, if you have a job other than influencing, your family, etc.!
I love to inspire people in many ways including in my style! I grew up in Colorado but could always hear Texas calling my name and that is where I have been the last 13 years. I am a woman of many hats but I love to stay busy, travel, take pictures, sing and share my heart! One of my main jobs is working for my family’s traveling Cowboy Ministry which is where I get to meet so many wonderful people. I have an amazing big family and when we are all together the fun never stops!
How would you describe your personal style?
I love wearing different styles and trying new trends. I would say my style could be described as experimental. I love adding new styles and trends to my wardrobe it keeps me from getting in a style rut. I see fashion as a way to be your own kind of creative; edgy, quirky, bold, elegant or even sporty. The choice is yours you just have to wake up and decide what style you are feeling and go for it!
What’s your favorite aspect of fashion?
That you can be and dress any way you want to! There are no rules!
What’s currently your favorite piece in your closet?
Probably my mineral washed colored bell bottom pants from Lil’ Bee’s Bohemian. Not only are they comfortable but can be worn for a casual look or a dressed up look that is more modern chic!
Who is your biggest style inspiration, or style icon?
Oh my, there are a few, it’s honestly hard to choose just one! My best friend Bobbie is constantly inspiring me, she has this polished and chic style that can still come off as cutting edge and always on point. Next, Blake Lively she has this timeless and effortless style that makes me just want to be her, being married to Ryan Reynolds doesn’t hurt either! I also don’t think you can get more classy and lady like than Audrey Hepburn. I would love to walk around in the perfect little black dress, fabulous sunnies with a splash of amazing accessories! Yes, I love Breakfast at Tiffany’s!
More importantly, dark or milk chocolate?
Dark Chocolate, hands down!
What’s your favorite way to unwind?
A cup of coffee with either a good book or a movie. I also love just hanging with family and friends because being surrounded by those you love, well there is just nothing better.
What’s your favorite fashion season?
I love fall into winter! I am a huge lover of hats, fun sweaters, and fabulous booties! Which are all so much easier to rock in the cooler seasons. It’s also the beginning of award season and I love Red Carpet fashion!
What is your favorite social network and why?
Instagram! I have had the opportunity to meet and connect with some pretty phenomenal people from all walks of life. Which has turned into lasting friendships and I am so grateful! Plus it is chalk full of so much style inspiration!
If you could give advice to a young person, interested in fashion, and maybe one day hoping to become a blogger or influencer – what would you tell them?
I would tell them you can do anything you set your mind to, you just have to start! Try to stay positive and never ever give up! Remember it is not always about the numbers but about doing what you love and making a positive impact! Find and start following those who inspire you and see what stands out to you then try to put your own spin on things. Also be sure to use good quality images and always keep your word when collaborating!
How long have you been a blogger or fashion influencer?
A little over 2 years
How did your blog get started? Any fun stories behind your name?
It had always been something I had wanted to do, I just had not been brave enough to put myself out there sooner. I had tried once and failed in my eyes a few years before that, but honestly, I just wasn’t ready quite yet. January 2015 I decided to just go for it and I haven’t looked back! I am so glad I did it! When trying to pick my blog name, I wanted to blend 2 of my favorite things that best describe me, my faith and my style. So it came to me, Living in Grace & Style!
What are your favorite trends at the moment?
Right now one of my favorite trends is off-the-shoulder tops with ruffles! I am also loving what RobertoCavallii has out right now! It is a floral bohemian style but it is a free-spirited look that is perfect for spring and summer!
If you styled a celebrity– who would it be?
I would love to style Blake Lively. Being as she is one of my style icons it would be really amazing to get the chance to style her.
Which boutiques do you like to shop with, and why boutiques?
I love shopping with boutiques that carry a curvy line. When you shop at boutiques you get such a more personal experience and they really help take care of you. I love meeting boutique owners and seeing their passion for what they do, it is truly inspiring! Plus you can find pieces that you can’t obviously get at just any department stores! I love shopping at, Lil’ Bee’s Bohemian, The Whistilin’ Willow, Redford Ranch, Ritzy Gypsy and honestly the list could just go on and on!
“I would not be where I am today without my faith and all of the love and support from my friends and family! I am completely humbled and excited for this new journey and can not wait to see what all lays ahead. Remember today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive that’s you’er than you!” – Xo Hannah Leigh
