hello there! my name is leigh and i pen a little island style blog called hapa | hale. it is such a delight to meet you all and have the chance to guest post on lovely clusters. my days typically dwell in scouting modern hawaii design but my sweet escapes to rachel's romantic world of charming compilations and dreamy photoscapes is always a happy diversion.
our little archipelago in the pacific is home to a mix of people from the islands and far beyond who restyle vintage mu'umu'us into fetching new looks, harvest seashells from the shore to transform into ravishing adornment, and carefully construct pretties to complement life in the tropics.
i hope you enjoy this peek of a few recent favorites gathered from local designers who always make me smile with their refreshing, handcrafted spin on island style, plus glimpses of island life as seen through the looking glass of local photographers who capture the most swoon-worthy imagery.
happy camping rachel! and thank you again for the chance to share a hint of modern day island loveliness with your 'ohana (hawaiian for family).
