Hello! Welcome to Our Style Stories.

My name is Hilary Walker and I am a prop stylist and blogger based in Dallas/Fort Worth. This is where I write stories about people with unique personal style, distinct points of view, and creative pursuits.

I am endlessly curious about the type of person who knows themselves so well that it shows up in every expression of their life – In their home, through their wardrobe, by way of their career choices and art interests, in the way they speak and the thoughts they carry. This blog is an attempt to gather insights into fostering authentic personal style and meaningful creative work through the stories of such people.

First, a few brief words about me – I am the daughter of two quirky, loving, deeply thoughtful Christian hippies. I am a former ballet, modern, and ballroom dancer who received her degree in interior design. I was raised in the beautiful city of Nashville, TN and currently reside in Fort Worth, TX with my percussionist and music educator husband, David, and our two rescue puppy dogs, Marlo and Ives. Our cozy household became a lively family of five with the addition of our sweet baby boy, Gabriel, this past March. He is taking over my Instagram.

In my short time on this Earth, my path has taken me down many roads and I’ve learned something useful and self-informing from each one. Along the way, I’ve condensed my “why” down to a handful of thoughts.

So, why do I write this blog? Simple. I believe in beauty and its uplifting power. I cherish home environments and their nurturing properties. I appreciate a good wardrobe and the opportunity for expression that our clothing provides. I value authenticity and its ability to empower. I seek role models and a community of kindred spirits.
