Hailie and I have a unique story of meeting! We were friends via Instagram and we had never met. We both work 9-5’s and I posted a photo on my story of the Christmas tree in my building. Hailie knew where it was and we met up for coffee on our lunch break because she literally works across the street! What I love most about this girlie is that she’s real and genuine. She’s always the life of the party even if she has to wake up early the next morning for a workout. Hailie gives 100% into everything and I love her for it!

When/Why did you decide to become an influencer? 
I was in college and for one of my assignments was the create a blog and  I was talking to my friends and they convinced me to actually do it for real. I’ve always had a huge love for fashion so I kind of took that assignment and turned into what I have today!

What is your favorite part of being an influencer? 
My favorite part would be when people tell me that they bought this because of me or something I said helped them personally. When you can personally impact whether its 5 people or 5000 it’s one of the greatest feelings.

What are some unexpected downsides to being an influencer?
You are constantly being judged. More from your personal friends too, mainly because they don’t understand it. You are constantly working. It never stops if you want to grow you have to do it yourself and keep going, there are no downtimes in social media.
I don’t think people realize how much work you have to put into it. It’s just not taking a pretty picture. I could probably list more!

What three accounts on Instagram do you follow that inspire you?
https://www.instagram.com/haileebobailee/  Her personality and no f**ks attitude is what inspires me. She is always herself!
https://www.instagram.com/marianna_hewitt/  I mean come on, this girl is all grace and style.
https://www.instagram.com/emilyrosehannon/  HAIR GOALS. She is just perfection!

How do you deal with comparison on Instagram?
At first, it was really hard being like why does this person get more likes or followers than me. My content is just as good, but to be honest, you just need to stop giving a fuck and when I stopped worrying and I started being more of myself that is when everything changed for me.
.
.
How do you balance your job, personal life, and being an influencer? 
I am actually writing a blog post about this soon! But it is for sure hard, long story short I have to dedicate specific time to people and things that are most important to me. I have lost a lot of opportunities but it all comes down to what matters to you most.
.
.
What are three brands that would be your dream partnerships?
Revolve is like one of my major goals! Free People for sure but I don’t think they do any collabs. If I could also get any huge designer like Gucci or something luxury I think I would die.
.
.
What piece of advice would you give yourself when you started to become an influencer?
STOP GIVING A F**K WHAT PEOPLE THINK. I am so mad at myself for caring for the longest time what people thought about me. I would probably be in a different place right now if I stopped earlier.
.
.
What is the craziest fashion trend you’re into right now?
Underboob all the way.
