Maroons and Browns

Hi Everyone,

Hope you are having a great start of the week. I have always loved Fighting Eel dresses. They are dresses that are very versatile and wearable for any occasion. I picked up this Fighting Eel dress last year at a sample sale. I love the deep maroon color. Here, I paired this Fighting Eel Dress with a beige blazer, pumped up the neckline with a cluster bib fushia necklace I borrowed from my bestie. I finished the outfit with a brown pleated front peep toe pump from Aldo.   Hope you like it. Take care.

XOXO,

Elle

Romantic Highs and Lows

Hi Everyone,

Hope your Saturday is going well. Today is a really nice Saturday outside, the birds are chirping and it feels very Spring. It is definitely different from yesterday’s showers. Spring time reminds me of blooms, bright and pastel colors as well as romance. While shopping at Brandy <3’s Melville last fall I spotted this high low hemline lavender dress. I really liked the movement of the dress when I walked in them. The dress is fun for a date in the park, a romantic night out with the beau, or tea with the girlfriends.

Have a great Saturday.

XOXO,

Elle

Deep Corals with a touch of Turquoise

Hello Everyone! Hope you are having a great Friday. I wanted to thank everyone who viewed and gave great comments on the blog, I greatly appreciated it. A few people have approached me about doing blogs on accessories and color combinations, so I can’t wait to share those with you.

I just love the way coral and turquoise go together so nicely. I picked up this dress from H & M last winter. I was instantly drawn to the deep coral color. I accented the dress with taupe accessories like the obi belt, tassel clutch, and my sky high wedges. My favorite accessory to use with this dress is this multi-strand faux turquoise necklace I picked up at Forever21 last summer.

I wanted to thank everyone again for your support. If you have suggestions and comments please comment below. Take care.

XOXO,

Elle

Grecian Inspired with a Modern Twist

There is something so clean about white on white. On my photo shoot with Sharon and Will,  Sharon spotted this amazing backdrop of  white stairs. It instantly inspired the outfit that I am wearing here. I love the high-low feature of this dress. The back, not pictured plunges to a V and the bottom of the skirt splits.  The dress is a little sheer but the perfect solution is adding a mini nude color dress underneath so that the slip does not take away from the clean crispy white.  I paired the dress with wedge heels and brass details. The necklace feature below plays up the neckline.

I would like to take the time to thank everyone that has been supporting this blog for the past 2 and half months now. None of this would be possible if it weren’t for your kind word and likes, believe me even the likes have made my day. You are all making part of my dreams come true.  Yesterday, my blog finally made 500 views. It isn’t a lot yet but hopefully it will not be too long before we get to 1000 and beyond. Please comment below or like this post and if you would like to see anything or have any suggestions feel free to comment and let me know. Hope to hear from you and get some feedback. Take care.

XOXO,

Elle

Rockin’ Accessories

Hi Everyone,

Hope you are having a great week so far. A plain dress might have a little personality but it’s the accessories that take it from plain to great. I spotted this dress one day while going through the racks at Nordstrom Rack. The small details of the dress caught by eye, like the cowlneck, the cinches at the shoulder and at the hip, a realitively simple cut with a small twist. I added a little rock and roll to this dress with  my chainmaile watch, a pleated detailed bag from Steve Madden and pumped up the look with a caged heel. I hope you are all doing well, take care and please comment or like the outfit.

XOXO,

Elle

Peach Polka Dots and Pearls

Hi Everyone,

Hope you are having a great start of the week. This weekend, I picked up a fun polkadot skirt from Forever 21. Polka dots is always a fun and whimsical print that is also very classic.  Here, I paired my polka dot skirt with a simple three quarter sleeve tee, some classic pearls and finished it with an obi belt. How do you wear your polka dots? Let me know and comment with your response below. Take care.

XOXO,

Elle

Purple Paisleys and Brown Tones

Hello Everyone! I know it’s been awhile again but I assure you that I am definitely going to be changing somethings with my blog posts. Today,  I had the pleasure of working with photographer friends of mine, Will and Sharon, and I am excited to say that this blog is going have a mini-makeover. In the past couple of months, many of the pictures that I have used for my blog has been taken with my phone and while that suffices, I know that better quality pictures would really boost the look of my blog. So I asked a couple of friends of mine if they could help me with this mini-makeover. Here are the first results of a great collaboration. Today, was definitely a great day for photos. Hope you enjoy. Tell me what you think and take care.

XOXO,

Elle
