New Year, New Beginning

Happy New Year!

I’m a little late on this New Year’s post but better late than never. Life has been very busy the last couple of months and I cannot thank you enough for your patience. The blog unfortunately had to take a back seat to everything else that was happening; graduate school, work, and wedding planning.

With every new year, there is a promise of new beginnings and a renewed outlook on life. I cannot wait for what is in store for 2016 and I hope you join me in this journey.

Nothing says celebration like a little bit of red, bling, and some fringe to liven things up.

XOXO,

Leopard and Floral

Hey All,

I’m back from my short hiatus. April and May were really busy months for me but I’m glad to inform you that while I was away, I was working on a couple of projects that I can not wait to share with you.

I’ve seen leopard with floral combined before but I have not gotten myself into putting that combination together for an outfit. When I saw this blouse a couple of months ago, I instantly fell in love with the pop of neon peaking through the darker colors of the shirt. I wanted to pair it with shoes that was neutral but accented the print on the shirt. I decided the leopard and floral pairing was worth a shot. What do you think? Let me know.

XOXO,

Elle

Detail Oriented: Textures and Accessories

Hey Everyone,

It doesn’t get that cold in Hawaii but I love to layer when the temperature drops just a little. We might not have the cold chilly winters of the continent but the trade winds more than make up for that. It is definitely not sunshine all year round here, so I have my share of light sweaters and jackets.

When the weather gets cooler, I like to layer my outfits and play with different fabrics. Right now, I’m really loving the look of satin juxtaposed with a light knit  sweater or the fine woven finish of a button down.  It gives an outfit more dimension and character, playing up the different textures harmoniously.

In addition to texture play, I’m currently obsessed with working with accessories to accent and finish my outfits. I love accenting the collar with a pop of sparkle and color or picking up bracelets and rings that have subtle but interesting details.

Smiles and Rainbows: Printed Dress and Gold Details

Halfmoonsandslices6

Happy Friday everyone! Hope you are having an amazing and good Friday! It’s been raining a lot lately here the past couple of days. When in rains in Hawaii, there are always rainbows, gleams of hope on rainy days, that brighten up the gloomy sky. I love the way the half moon print of the dress reminds me of rainbows and smiling faces.

Spring is Here: Monet meets a Little Sparkle

SpringPants1

Hey Everyone! Monday is here. I hope you had an amazing weekend.

SpringPants2

When I think of Spring, I think of sunshine, the chirping of birds (and they are definitely chirping outside of my window as I type this), beautiful blossoms everywhere, and a peaceful and hopeful day at the park. This is a feeling that I get everytime I look at the the paintings of Monet. Today, I wanted to wear a piece that reminded me of the hopefulness, renewal, and growth often associated with Spring.

Button Downs and Interesting Prints


I love button down shirts because they are so versatile for any wardrobe. Besides the classic colors, I like ones that have interesting prints to spice up the the wardrobe. They can be worn with skirts, slacks, or a pair of jeans, and even a pair if shorts.

The particular button down shirt in this outfit has the rich colors that are popular in the fall: reds, beiges, oranges, and touches of teal.

XOXO,
Elle
