My First Post

Hello and Hafa Adai (how you say hello in Chamorro, my native language)!!!  Welcome to my site! I am ecstatic to be sharing my first post with you guys.  This was a long time in the making and after so many months of ups and downs, I'm finally ready to dive deep into this blogging thing and have another creative outlet where I can share my passion.  I started this blog project back in October and there were so many things that kept me from launching it in a timely manner.  I'm not going to pretend that this process was at all easy or fun.  It definitely was emotional because I felt like I failed myself in going with my gut and finding the right people to work with.  Essentially, this is my second time working with people in the web design industry, and what I have learned through this process is that you have to do what feels right.  Intuition is a miraculous thing.  I was not going to launch a site just to launch it.  I wanted all my own visions to come to life, not what anyone else thought I should do.  After so much back and forth and going through the motions, I now feel like I am delivering a product with pride and purpose.  I am actually going into this a little backwards.  Most bloggers start a blog and progress onto YouTube.  I did the exact opposite. I started my YouTube channel because I liked watching videos and realized that if they can do it, so can I.  So expanding from videos to blogging was natural and kind of necessary.  I named the site Style Staycation because I wanted fashion lovers to have a place where they can getaway... to be inspired, to find outfit ideas or to go somewhere even if it's just on their spare time.  I hope you'll continue to tag along with me on this fun, fashion adventure, but most of all, I hope you'll re-create/duplicate some of these looks and feel your best!         

Gone are the days where tulle was widely known as the material used on the infamous toddler's birthday tutu.  Tulle is making a major comeback and is showing it's face in every retail space these days. This tulle top features floral embroidery, tiered ruffles, and a dobby spot detail.  These "Insider Crop Step Fray" jeans by Mother paired perfectly with this tulle top.  It even had a dirty off-white tint to it. For accessories, I went with my Gorjana bangles, hoops and Gucci Marmont purse.  The shoes are my new favorite purchase.  They are the Lisana heels by Schuts.  They seem a little complicated, but the colors on these heels work its way into so many aspects of a woman's closet.  Best part, they are super light weight and comfortable.
