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.

Blue and Brass: Ocean Blue Midi with Brass Details

Hey All,

I hope you had an amazing couple of weeks. School and work is tapering down for me and I’m looking forward to a long awaited trip. Before I step into the cold winters of the mid-west, I’m going to enjoy the next couple of weeks of cool days and sunny skies.

Shades of blue are in this season and when I saw this midi skirt it reminded me of the cool ocean blues that surround Hawaii.  I choose this brass necklace to compliment the brass studs in the shoes. I love how the gold tone of the brass brings out the richness of the blue.

White Shirts are Easy

Hello Everyone,

White shirts make the world go round. I have a ton of them in my closet, in different fabrics, cuts, and fits. I found this easy pullover from Rumi Murikami’s Summer Collection last month at the Made in Hawaii festival and I’ve already worn in several times. It’s an easy piece that goes with everything. I can dress it up or dress it down and the cut is perfect for those extra warm Hawaiian afternoons. I paired this shirt with a set of DIY necklaces and a pair of patented red ballet flats to give it a polished tribal look. How do you wear your white shirts? Let me know.

XOXO,

Elle
