Hi! I’m Rachel. Thanks for stopping by.
I’m a twenty-something Hawaii-grown Los Angeles transplant, lifestyle + fashion blogger, marketing know-it-all, and self-proclaimed foodie. I was born and raised on the island of Oahu, left for college in Southern California when I was 17, and never looked back. Okay, that’s not entirely true. I still visit the islands, but California is where my heart is.
My entire childhood was spent dreaming of being a model or an actor, until I decided that that sounded like entirely too much unrealistic work. I did, however, gain an irrefutable love for style and creativity thanks to all of my daydreaming. And here we are.
I spent years interning, working, and writing in the fashion space. Rachel Off Duty is decidedly more laid back than the things I’ve written for my 9-to-5 (or else I’d go crazy). I continue, however, to believe in and perpetuate the idea that having fun with your persona and letting that shine through in your style and your attitude is what it’s all about. It’s important to be comfortable in your own skin, no matter what you’re facing–and that’s something I try to remind myself of that each and every day.
Rachel Off Duty is not just another personal style blog. It’s a study of what it means to be a 20-something coming into his or her own. And along the way, it’s a curation of little things that define and inspire my everyday when I’m not sitting at a desk. From style, to relationships, to work, to lifestyle, to travel, come along on my journey with me. Maybe we’ll learn something from each other along the way.
All photos and looks on my blog are curated from brands or things that I own, love, and believe in. Anything gifted will be indicated as such. If you would like to use any of my images, great! Please just link back to this site, if you do (and maybe let me know/say hi? I won’t bite).
