Black and White Polka Dots with a Touch of Red

Hi All!
Hope you are having an amazing Wednesday. I love polka dots. It is such a classic print. I love the way black and white polka dots go so well with red or other bold colors. Here, I styled the print with an oversized white shirt.

The photos for this particular blog post got me thinking about finding the perfect white button down shirt, a closet staple. In the recent past, I was okay with just purchasing any white button down shirt but as of late, I am particularly in search for one that fits well. I have gone to several places and tried on several. Now, I need to decide on the perfect white button down shirt for me.

Thank you so much for reading. I do ask you that if you do read this blog, please leave me a comment or like my page. I would love to hear from you.

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

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
