Spring is Here: Shirt and Stripes

Hello Everyone,

I hope you are having a great first day of Spring.  One of the major Spring trends that I’m loving right now are shirt dresses. I’m a huge fan of button down shirts and shirt dresses have the same appeal for me. Shirt dresses are easy to put on and embellish. You can definitely dressed them up or down and accessorize how ever you want.  It is a versatile piece you can definitely wear on its own or wear over a pair of skinny jeans or even tuck under a pencil skirt.  It’s a piece that is a great addition to any wardrobe. Ideally, I would recommend finding one that is plain colored or pinstriped if you want to give it staying power in your wardrobe.

I picked this up on sale a couple of years ago while shopping at a local Hawaii boutique called Eden in Love. I instantly fell in love with the colorful stripes and the soft feel and drape of the fabric. Here I finished the look up with a leather obi belt and some nude pumps to give my legs some length.

Tulle and Tee Shirts

Hey All,

There is something completely whimsical about tulle skirts. I love the airiness and flow of the fabric. I adore the fact that they can be worn casual or formal depending on the pairing. The tulle skirt I am wearing in this picture took me a year to make. It’s not because it was hard to make. It took a year because I put it off while I made different styles of tulle skirts in between. This was the first tulle skirt I attempted to make but I made it a little little different from the others. I took it apart several times before I settled on hand pleating each layer and then finishing it.

Today, I decided to wear my tulle skirt with my favorite simple fitted tee, it reminds me of a ballerina’s outfit, simple and romantic.  I decided to pull it all together with an obi belt and a pair of nude pumps to lengthen my frame.

Thanks again for reading.

XOXO,

Elle
