Feeling Blue

Happy Wednesday.

While the rest of the continental U.S. is cooling down. I still feel like it’s summer here, the humidity as of late has been a friendly remainder of tropical island weather. Truthfully, I’m missing the cooler weather and the ability to layer and wear cute sweaters. I’m really hoping for a colder winter in Hawaii sans torrential downpours. While we wait for sweater weather, I’m satisfied having more time to wear some of my summer favorites.

The gemstone blue of this dress screams Summer. I adore the shift silhouette with the asymmetric flounce detail of the hemline, a modern take on a classic cut. It adds a soft touch to a very structured neoprene. To break up the bold color, I added black and gray accessories to give it more shape and personality.

Thanks for reading. Let me know what you think.

With Love and Thanks,

Sunday Brunch: Oxblood Skirt and Linked Details

I hope you are having an amazing Sunday spent with your love ones. We spent a part of  Sunday at brunch in Downtown Honolulu. It was such beautiful warm day to be out.

I have been searching for a neoprene skirt for a very long time and recently found this front pleated a-line skirt that I absolutely adore. Neoprene can sometimes look very bulky depending on the way the fabric is cut because it does not drape and tends to sustain a stiffer shape.  I was excited to find this skirt and welcomed it’s simple silhouette.

I paired the skirt with a striped shirt and finished the outfit with my favorite quilted clutch, a pair of my favorite oxblood pumps and some chain linked accessories.

Hello all,

Happy Thursday everyone, this past month and a half, I have been busy planning my brother’s wedding. I’m relieved that it is finally over. It was a lot of work but well worth it. I learned a lot in the process of planning and putting it all together.

It was held at the Utopian Estate in Pupukea, Hawaii. I loved the estate’s organic architecture and beautifully designed rooms. Every room and piece of furniture was purposely chosen. It was in a word, GORGEOUS. I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to stay at the estate.

For my brother’s wedding, I wore a BCBG Runway dress. I loved the silky texture of the dress juxtaposed with the lace overlay. The dress exuded a vintage feel a la “The Grate Gatsby.” I loved the lace mixed with the silky fabric taupe, nude, and the pop of orange as well the the soft pleating on the bust and skirt of the dress. I also love the unexpected asymmetric hemline.

XOXO,

Elle

Pretty in Pink

Hello all,
I wanted to stop by and say hello. I went thrifting yesterday with a good friend and spotted these pretty pink shoes on the shoe racks. It’s a barely worn BCBG pink bow heels. It was definite a great find. Just a little TLC and they’ll be better than new. 🙂 Hope you are having an amazing day. Take care.

XOXO

Autumn Stripes

Hi All,
Hope you are having a great Wednesday! Fall is here and although Hawaii does not get as cold as the continent, the weather definitely gets cooler with a bit of rain. For us, it is a season for rainbows. Speaking of rainbows, I love the way the stripes of this dress with its pale blue, beige, black, and burnt orange remind me of fall.

Thank you so much for reading. Please let me know what you think. Take care.

XOXO,
Elle
