Lillian Hardy - PORTLAND, OR

Age: 23 

Occupation: Art Director for Editorial Studio / Option Model / Screenprinter

Bedtime: My partner is trying to convince me that going to bed by 9:30 or 10 PM is "best for me.” The night owl in me doesn't like to agree.

Wake up: Some time between 5 and 7 AM.

How would you describe your morning routine?
My morning routine can never be defined by one thing. Some mornings I wake up, hop on the motorcycle with my partner and ride to our favorite coffee shop. Other mornings I take it easy, take my dog for a long walk, maybe squeeze in a run. Most of the time we both wake up and head straight to our studio.

I want to feel and look effortless, so that the rest of my day can potentially feel that way too.
— Lillian Hardy

How long does it take you to get ready?
I really enjoy my time in the bathroom, however I like to keep it short and sweet. I want to feel and look effortless, so that the rest of my day can potentially feel that way too.

What is the one thing in your morning you can't do without? 
A glass of water and an Americano to follow.

What gets you motivated to start your day?
I usually keep a handwritten list of things I should do the coming day next to my bed to reference in the morning. I also indulge in a bit of Instagram to keep up with women I admire. For me it's easy to see a post and feel a desire to be more powerful or capable of a goal. 

Do you plan out your outfits the night before or are you more of a spontaneous morning dresser?
I’m a spontaneous morning dresser. I like dressing to my immediate morning mood and to a scene I may encounter later that day. 

If you had 15 more minutes in the morning, what would you squeeze in?
An every morning jaunt to Courier Coffee via Ducati with the boyfriend.
