STYLE GURU BIO: Katie Hattabaugh

Hey Fashionistas! My name is Katie and I am a sophomore at Saddleback College in Orange County, California. I am 19 years old and have been loving fashion ever since I was old enough to dress myself. My style changes everyday, but in sum: I love boho, classic and casual looks.

For my outfit, I paired a dark blue tie-dye asymmetrical dress with a classic denim jacket that I truly believe goes with anything. To complete the look, I added a chunky statement necklace and strappy sandals. The red lips add the perfect pop of color so that nobody gets lost in all that blue!

At Saddleback, I am a business administration and management major, and am considering minoring in English. I’m an honors student and am also a member of the Saddleback Business Club.

Apart from being a Style Guru and student, I am a receptionist at BMW in Newport Beach and I own my own bikini company. I will be releasing a line of handmade swimsuits in June! I named my company “The Brightest Color” because my friend told me once that my personality is “the brightest color in the crayon box.” Entrepreneurship and fashion are my two biggest passions and I am ecstatic to be able to use them both. It’s only the beginning for me and my company!

When I’m not in school or working, I love to garden, sew and drink tea. I am certainly an old lady at heart, but a vivacious and stylish old lady at that.

Summer 16, here we go! I am ecstatic to be a Style Guru this semester, and I am even more excited to share the style of my fellow fashionable students. Southern California is truly a fashion-lover’s heaven! Check out my posts for a sneak peek into the fashion of Orange County students!
