Talk about a beautiful girl inside and out, with a vision for a wonderful future, a passion for fashion and sheer determination to live her dream. Kudos to Elizabeth Lockhart, Southern Hippie has a great future ahead!
1. Growing up, what did you want to be?
EL: Neonatal Specialist, fashion designer, therapist, professional barrel racer, and the list continues to grow… I have changed careers several times, but always take bits and pieces from the previous in order to be better at the next! I love people and have always known that I was not put on this earth to sit still!
TSD: What a great ability to transform!
2. What college did you go to and what is your degree in?
EL: I have a B.S. from Texas Tech University in Human Development and Family Studies and a M.S. from the University of North Texas in Educational Psychology.
TSD: You have a lot going for you, great fundamental subjects for life!
3. Dream Car?
EL: Old- 1970’s Restored Wood Panel Jeep Wagoneer : ) New- I love the G Wagon!
4. Celebrity Style Icon?
EL: I love Kate Hudson’s effortless style. I also love the way she approaches fashion and what I view as her personal sense of style. In my mind I think that Kate wakes up each day, looks in the mirror, and asks the reflection, “How do I feel today and what outfit will allow me to express those feelings.” Kate is chic, edgy, and feminine all at the same time!
5. If you could trade places with anyone for the day (past or present) who would it be?
EL: June Carter Cash
TSD: Very interesting… :)
6. Cali or NY?
EL: This is hard for me to say… I have actually never been to NYC and for a lady that loves fashion I know what a sin that is! So, for now I have to say so Cali.
TSD: You’ll like both in completely different ways!
