A Hawaii Style Blog

Easy Days

Last post I said that I am celebrating where I am to keep it real with you. February has been a productive month for me. Reading and writing a lot for graduate school and taking the time to get healthy again.

In the beginning of my blog and up until my long blog hiatus, I use to put a lot of thought in the clothes that I put up on my blog. I love to dress up but in all honesty, dressing up everyday does not always work for Hawaii weather. It’s warm here and while more famous bloggers in Hawaii wear surfer clothing, wear bathing suits and summer dresses. That is simply not my style. On days when I am out and about to read, write and study, my favorite outfit is a denim bottom and a soft cotton top and a tote in hand to carry my books. In Hawaii, flip flops seem to go with everything. Jo Koy said it best that Hawaii people love to wear flip flops or slippers.

To be honest, on a daily basis being comfortable is important in our weather. Like in a previous post, we have our own perspective, it does not necessarily fit the perspective of the rest of the world but it is ours. Who ever said that Fashion has rules anyway. Fashion is what you make of it, how you create outfits with what you have and how you carry yourself. You’re style is your style, no one else’s.

What is favorite outfit? Thanks again for reading.

XOXO,

Tulle and Tee Shirts

Hey All,

There is something completely whimsical about tulle skirts. I love the airiness and flow of the fabric. I adore the fact that they can be worn casual or formal depending on the pairing. The tulle skirt I am wearing in this picture took me a year to make. It’s not because it was hard to make. It took a year because I put it off while I made different styles of tulle skirts in between. This was the first tulle skirt I attempted to make but I made it a little little different from the others. I took it apart several times before I settled on hand pleating each layer and then finishing it.

Today, I decided to wear my tulle skirt with my favorite simple fitted tee, it reminds me of a ballerina’s outfit, simple and romantic.  I decided to pull it all together with an obi belt and a pair of nude pumps to lengthen my frame.

Thanks again for reading.

XOXO,

Elle
