Leopard in the Desert

Amazing Saturday Everyone!

This is my second installment of my collaboration with Kris from KM2 Creative in Las Vegas. When we first discussed the collaboration, Kris mentioned doing the shoot at the dry lake bed. I really did not know what to expect but I figured I’d put together an outfit that really celebrates the unique desert features of the area.

While out shopping in Las Vegas, I spotted (no pun intended) this gorgeous leopard print trousers, the unique rosette pattern definitely called out to me. Usually, leopard print is so bold that in the past I gravitated to only accessorize with it. But after falling in love with these pants, I could not help but step out of my comfort zone a little.

The leopard print trousers was perfect for the shoot. It complimented the backdrop that we were working with perfectly. Because the print from the pants is bold, I decided to wear a simple white blouse  and nude pumps.

Good Friends, Great Times: Lace and Pleats

 laceandpleats

Hello All,

This past Spring break, I flew up to Las Vegas to celebrate my best friend’s wedding as well as spend some time with great friends. While visiting, I got a chance to do a photo shoot with my good friend Kris from KM2 Creative. It was so much fun shooting on location as well as learning so much about fashion photography. I have to say, I’m super proud of him for following his dreams as a artist. He is truly an inspiration.

While on my mini vacation in Las Vegas. I like to shop at places that we do not have in Hawaii.  One of my favorite places to frequent is Zara. I love their selection of pieces. They are always on trend and runway inspired. When I first saw this skirt on their website, I instantly fell in love with the colors of the lace. I loved it more when I saw the skirt in person at their Las Vegas store. It is a such a beautiful piece that I wanted to really highlight the skirt in this outfit by choosing pieces that were more subtle.

Sunday Brew and Soft Pastels

IMG_4128Hello Everyone,

Our trip to New England was amazing. I hope you loved the beautiful pictures that The Photographer shot. He is definitely getting a lot of practice in fashion and landscape photography. Please feel free to let us know what you think.  We are always open to suggestions and new ideas.

One of my favorite things to do on Sunday mornings is to drink a nice cup of coffee or warm tea and sit  and chat with friends.  I don’t get a chance to do it often but when I do get a chance it’s nice to be able to take some time and catch up with friends that I haven’t seen in ages.
Just like coffee and great conversations, classic pieces like a gathered skirt, a button down, and a pair of nude pumps never go out of style. Whatever the combination is, it’s a pairing that can be worn in different color combinations and it still works. Hope you enjoyed your Sunday as well as enjoy the start of a new week. Take care always.

XOXO,

Elle
