Creative Spring

image

Spring is here and the weather is warming up everywhere. On days when the sun is out and we are running around exploring or running errands, there’s nothing like denim cut offs and a lace crochet top to celebrate the weather.

We decided to visit our favorite shops today, look into photography supplies at Treehouse, get inspired by plants at Paiko, and test out some sewing machines. Not bad for the first Tuesday of Spring for an inspired creative.

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.

Crispy White Summer

Hey all,

Happy Tuesday to everyone. Warmer summer weather is definitely here. It’s been so humid out that wearing layers and jeans is out of the question. I’ve been keeping cool with lighter airy fabrics that make this humid weather more bearable. During the summer months, I live in dresses and sandals to keep cool and comfortable during warmer weather.

Lately, I’ve really been loving this white apron dress that I picked up last summer from Rumi Murakami, a local designer here in Hawaii. I love the crispy white fabric and the deconstructed lines of this dress. It’s the perfect dress to battle the warm summer months.

And the perfect pair of mainstay sandals are a great pair of gladiator sandals.

So how do you keep cool during the warm summer months? Let me know. Take care.

XOXO,

Elle

Vintage Gingham

Hi Everyone,

I hope everyone is doing well. Summer is almost here and I have been very busy finishing up  work. I definitely welcome the summer months.  I just adore the opportunity in enjoying the beach, barbecue with friends, and just enjoying the nature of Hawaii. Summer brings back a lot of nostalgia for me especially because of all the great times spent with friends.

A print that’s very current this season and is a summer mainstay is gingham. I have to admit, it’s one of my favorite prints to wear on its own and to mismatch.  I found this gingham romper at Barrio Vintage in Downtown Honolulu. I love the fact that this romper looks so much like a dress that it’s hard to notice that it is a romper. One thing I like about  vintage shopping is that most vintage pieces have the tendency to run smaller, so they are very petite friendly.

So what is your favorite summer piece in your wardrobe? Comment below and Let me know.

XOXO,
