LYLIF’s Current Crush

While this spring season has been bringing us our latest obsessions in accessories, we also have been fixated on one special blogger.

We delightfully bring to you our latest edition of “LYLIF’s Current Crush” featuring the lovely Jessica of the fashion and style blog, Hapa Time. Jessica’s effortlessly chic style caught our attention along with her cool California girl look.  We love her take on style and seeing her bring all the new fashion trends to her fans and readers.

We had a small Q&A session with Jessica to get to know her and Hapa Time personally and to pick at her thoughts regarding style and blogging.  Learn more about the girl behind Hapa Time down below!

How would you describe your style?
My style is classy… understated sexy, trendy and quite the opposite of extreme.

Here at LYLIF we are huge fans of your blog- what first inspired you to start?
I started fashion blogging because on a normal day I don’t have that many places to dress up for. I also love beautiful photos, and this was my chance to both create beautiful photos and have a reason to dress well. It’s worked out well too, because it helps me get out and about more too!

How did you come up with the name of your blog, Hapatime?
Well, I am hapa. And I really wasn’t sure if I was going to create a fashion blog from the start. I thought it would be about photography, healthy recipes, fitness, my artwork and more. So since I felt those things represent me and who I am – it just made sense that when people came to my blog, it was my time, aka Hapa Time.

Where do you go to get inspired?
I am inspired by everything and everyone. Mostly I check out store look books, lookbook.nu and other blogs though.

As your readers know, you have a background in art and design- How has this impacted your blog?
I use my eye for art and design to make my blog and photos as aesthetically pleasing as possible. It helps me make the right decisions when directing our (albeit amateur) photo shoots, choosing the right photos, arranging them in the best order, layout— everything. Without my skills in art and design, I can assure you, my blog would be nowhere where it is today!

What do you love most about blogging?
I love the excitement it brings to everyday! It motivates me to get creative, and every post is like an art project that I have to ace – I miss that from college. It is what gets me going every morning. New comments, emails, followers, inspiration, appreciation, love, friends – blogging has really opened up a whole new world to me. One in which I feel like I belong and it is truly wonderful!

What is your favorite accessory to wear?
My favorite accessory would be a perfect pair of sunglasses.

Are there any specific fashion icons or designers that have influenced you and your style?
I generally don’t go run out and buy something or try to emulate a look exactly just because my favorite fashion icon is wearing/created it. (And I don’t really have a favorite designer, I like too many!) But I do think fashion icons such as Miranda Kerr, Shea from Cheyenne meets Chanel, Kasia from Jestem Kasia, Carlinn from Superficial Girls and Annabelle from Vivaluxury constantly influence me.

If you could go back to any era what would it be and why?
I love the 60’s! The cuts are so flattering, feminine and elegant. I would always feel beautiful, poised and confident if I were dressed like they were :)

What is a must-have trend you have been following recently?
High low skirts. They are truly fabulous. I was never a huge fan of maxi skirts, as they get too easily tangled up or caught between the legs. And mini skirts are fun but not exactly original. I feel like high-low skirts, or mullet skirts, are the perfect balance of the two, and not only that but right on trend, romantic, whimsical and sweet.

We want to thank Jessica for her time, and make sure to check out her blog, Hapatime! We’re looking forward to seeing what she comes up with next for her future trendsetting looks!
