Hello all,

Happy Aloha Friday everyone! I love saying that. It has a ring to it that makes you enjoy the weekend just a tad bit more. As a kid, I enjoyed my summers away from school spending time at friends houses, having sleepovers, and enjoying the beach on sunnier days. I remember going to this place, Sand Island, and playing on the rocks with my brother whenever my family had a beach day.  Ashley, my photographer, and I had fun taking this shoot on the rocks with the backdrop of Downtown Honolulu. I love the juxtaposition of the relaxing beach atmosphere to the concrete jungle. I enjoyed skipping on the rocks, can you tell?

In my culture, wearing polka dots on New Years Eve suggests that the coming year will be full of wealth, joy, and prosperity  and since Summer for me marks the ending of a year and the beginning of a new one, I decided to wear polka dots to celebrate a more amazing year for my career, this blog, as well as other plans I have in store.

Hope you are Having a Great Friday! I am about to start mine. Follow my blog or check me out on Instagram at ellelovesshoes.

Green Bows and Sunny Skies


Hello Everyone,
The weather in Hawaii has been a little unstable. Sunny, Rainy, Humid, Hot, and Cold. You name it, we had it and yes, we even have snow, but that’s on another island. It’s been hard to shoot outside with the weather we have been having. This outfit was shot last week when there was some sun in the morning.

I absolutely love the bow details on this pair of pants and the green is just the right amount of color. I try to find a reason to wear them often. I have to admit though that the women’s version of these pants were a little long for me so I opted to get the crewcuts version.




Hope you are having an amazing day!
