Origami and Gemstones

Lately, I’ve been inspired to play with the pieces that are in my closet and use them in unexpected ways. This top was a end of summer purchase that is perfect year round.

The blouse reminds me of origami that  you can fold  and transform it into something beautiful. It’s a versatile piece that can be thrown over a shift dress, a pair of pants or skirt. I like that it’s great for layering for cooler weather but perfect for spring and the summer.

I like the way it looks backwards with the high neckline and the cinch at the waist to create a structured kimono look over a gemstone colored skirt.

Polka Dots

Hello All,

Polka dots are always classic. The skirt gives the print a softer look by using it on a sheer layer for this A line cut. I decided to bring out the color of the dots by using a similar color top and continuing the circle theme onto the necklace and the cutout of the shoes.

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,

Coordinated Stripes

Hello All,

I hope you are having a great weekend. Nothing gets old about black and white. It is a definite go to combination with so many possibilities.

The moment I saw this skirt, I fell in love with the unexpected take on stripes and the tulip construction. I really wanted to play up the stripes so I paired it with this striped raglan to create a coordinated look. I’m really like the results.  Let me know what you think.

Have a great weekend and let me know what you think.

Jumpsuits and Tea

Jumpsuit4

During the summer I was in search for a great  jumpsuit to change up my wardrobe. I was set in finding one that had a culotte bottom.

I kept this outfit simple but wanted to break up the jumpsuit with a obi belt tied at the waist to separate the top and the bottom.

This is a perfect outfit for lunch dates and afternoon tea. Thanks again for reading. Let me know how you wear your jumpsuits.

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,

Tweed, Pearls, and Channeling Coco

Hello All,
Just stopping in to say hello. I hope you started your weekend with something amazing. One of my favorite fashion icons is Coco Chanel. Her style and taste is timeless. One iconic piece that reminds me of her is the Tweed Blazer. I love to wear tweed on cooler days in Hawaii. I like to layer it over button down shirts and multiple strands of pearls. It is definitely a piece that is worth investing in because it’s not only timeless but also a great way to pull together an outfit and make it dressier. How do you wear tweed? I would love to hear from you.

Thank you again for reading. Please like, comment, or follow my blog. Take care.

XOXO,
Elle

Pearls and Pleats!

Hi Everyone,
I hope you are all having a wonderful Friday. I am looking forward to an amazing weekend filled with the company of friends and family.

This week, I had the pleasure of working with two amazing photographers who helped me out with my blog.  Ashley of Taryn Reid Photography and Ronalyn. Two amazing women with so much talent and knowledge about photography. I learned so much from the both of them when it come to photography, posing, as well as understanding the human body in photography. I am truly honored to have work with the both of them. You will have a chance to see some of their work in the proceeding posts.

I just love the way pleats go so well with a basic white button down shirt. I pulled this outfit together with a vest, layered pearl necklaces and a classic pair of black pumps. A great outfit for work or hanging out with friends.

I hope you have an amazing Friday. Thank you so much for reading. Please comment, follow, and like. I would love to hear from you.

XOXO,
Elle
