La vie Boheme

Hello gorgeous babes! The temperature has been rising a little more each day and I am extremely excited!! This means I’ll be getting those magical, warm summer nights I love so much! *major squeal. I just hate wearing something fresh during the day and having to change because the temperature went down, along with the sun. Now that the nights are also beginning to warm up I can stay in my summer day attire all day long. Being the bohemian flower child I am I could probably live in maxi dresses, ever since I was a little girl I loved dresses and hated wearing jeans. If it got cold I still wore dresses with some tights underneath, but this gal was not putting on jeans! Dresses were my thing and I gotta say they definitely still are especially if they are flowy with some open back details for the summer like this one. I linked a few adorable dresses down below but there are literally a million, thousand dresses out there that are amazing!

Love Elle.❤️

Summer Stunners

Helloo❤️. Hope everyone is having an amazing week! Today I wanted to share my current obsession, these culottes! I went into Norstrom looking for some anniversary sale items and found these as well. I was so excited to buy them on sale so I had to hurry up with this little blog post so they would still be available. They are the perfect summer piece especially during the summer because the fabric is so breezy and any movement in them creates air flow all around which is always good. I was also excited they were bright red 🙊 because I have been on the wanting some red pieces to add to my wardrobe. My other obsession has to be these shoes 😍😍 you guys have no idea how much I wanted the designer Aquazzura shoes but then Steve Madden came out with these crazy affordable ones  that look basically identical, I purchased without thinking twice! (Shopping addiction going strong!) Unfortunately they are a bit uncomfortable and I will probably only wear these to eat or to places I know I’ll be sitting majority of the time. Paired my two pops of red with as simple white crop top and my black beaded fringe bag!

Details below!

Love, Elle❤️

Sidewalk Secrets 

I always love spending time with my bestie and we always somehow try to coordinate in some way… It’s like I don’t want to be wearing flats when she’s wearing heels or vice versa. 👯 This day we hung out we wanted to go for a very casual bohemian look with turquoise accents and I loved how it came out! The pop of silver and turquoise against our clothing was just amazing!

Now for if you’re looking for some fun things to do during the summer with your best friend we’ve got you covered! Below are 10 fun ideas!

  1. Go for a walk, run, or jog! If you’re wearing little heels then probably make it a little walk around your neighborhood park! I am so lucky to live only 10 minutes away from my best friend so that’s a little more doable for us but if you don’t then just plan it out!
  2. Brunch it up! Go to cute little outdoor seating cafes and doll yourselves up! Maddie and I have a mini list of places we need to try!
  3. OC fair! During the month of July and August we have a fair with amazing food of all sorts and fun rides! Personally I don’t trust the rides all that much but they have good food and shows to entertain us so that’s enough for me!
  4. Roller skating/ Ice skating!! I love roller skating in the skating rinks but I also own a pair of roller blades that I use every now and then. Ice skating would just be an amazing thing to do during the day when the sun is way too hot to enjoy.
  5. Make it a pool day! I’m so happy my parents have an amazing pool we could enjoy stalked with fun floaties every summer, this year it’s gummy bears! Grab some ice cold beverages and blast your favorite tunes and just enjoy the day together!
  6. Beach day!! My bestie is all about exploring and has been telling me about snorkeling every time we hang out, she has all the gear and is always so excited about it. It’s made it onto my to do list with her but we still haven’t gotten around to doing.
  7. Shopping!! Shop! Duh! That’s a simple one!
  8. Sweet Treat! Go for a fun sweet treat of your choice! Ice cream, cake, smoothie, acai bowl, anything!!
  9. Theme Park Day! California has so many fun theme parks and I’m sure you have one near you!!
  10. Road Trip!! Choose the most gas efficient car and drive out to big sur or even San Diego! Doesn’t matter just go explore!!

Hope you enjoyed!

 

Love, Elle.

Embroidered Spanish Dress

One of my favorite things to do is BRUNCH and this dress is the perfect dress for a cute weekend brunch. The simplicity and details of this dress are beyond anything my little heart could ask for. 😍 When I woke up this morning I wanted a very classic look so I grabbed this dress immediately. It reminds me of Spain mostly because I would always see fabulous women wearing all white walking their dogs or shopping. It’s always so hot during the summer in Spain so wearing all white just makes sense!🤗  Every women in Spain also had some sort of small wedge making their outfit very casual but dressy all at the same time! That is what I was reminiscing of so this was my version of the everyday gal in Spain strolling through the city to grab some ice cream, iced coffee,brunch or simply strolling through the city for some fresh air and live entertainment of all sorts. The bag I picked up was this brown leather Tory Burch bag that fits a million things!

Love, Elle. 💋

Teen Vogue: Summer Edition

This outfit was inspired by Teen Vogue, when I think of Teen Vogue I think of lively colors of all sorts and new fashion trends one must experiment with especially during the summer. My outfit had to be work appropriate but I was able to incorporate some radiant colors into my outfit such as my hot pink bag you’ve seen a few times before and this dazzling yellow tweed blazer with a surprise of zipper detailing. I paired my two pops of color altogether with a simple striped linen dress and some simple nude heels. As for my hair I made this absolutely beautiful crown braid which actually makes me feel like a modern day bohemian summer princess Frida Kahlo (yes..that’s all together). That sums up my Teen Vogue: Summer Edition outfit. Happy Monday! Deets at the end.

Love, Elle.💋

Pretty little thing 

How amazing is it when you have the most beautiful sun kissed golden looking skin and throw on something white😍! I seriously felt like a tan goddess with this white pretty little open back romper. Unfortunately I don’t tan very easily I burn and peel immediately after, it’s always been so annoying but every year I bust out my self tanner. It’s seriously my number one beauty secret during the summer. A few years ago I discovered Victoria’s Secret bronzing lotion that only lasts for that day. I love the smell and the golden color it gives me that ends up looking quite natural, even after two or three coats🙈! Once I get that golden summer skin throwing on something white will definitely encentuate that tan! One of the reasons I love this romper has to be the open back detail, it simply screams summer! I paired it with my all time favorite Tory Burch gladiator sandals, she makes the most amazing sandals, as well as this classic denim jacket. Accessories were kept minimal by only wearing earring studs and one dainty bracelet. You can’t ever go wrong with the color white and especially not during the summer☀️! Details below!

Dreaming of Monaco 🇵🇱

First off I must welcome this little fur ball in my arms, Monaco Rafael! He is named after a country near the French Riviera! If you’ve seen Monte Carlo starring Selena Gomez… that’s the place! 😍 If you haven’t seen it… it is probably one of the girliest must see chick flicks ever! As for my outfit, I’m wearing this striped bodysuit🙊!! I’m slightly fixated on bodysuits right now because they stay tucked in at all times while I’m wearing any kind of bottoms! I feel like I’m collecting all sorts of colors and patterns and I am quite alright with that! ❤️I wore my bodysuit with some denim flares and you can’t see my shoes but I wore some brown chunky heels. I also wore some fun earrings and my hair pulled back in a messy little bun with a few pieces pulled out around my face. This outfit is so simple but these denim flares make it a little more exciting!

Love, Elle💋

Fourth of July Outfit!

Fourth of July is only two days away and I’m sharing the perfect go to outfit🙊! If you have a family full of kids and will most likely have to be running around some shorts rather than dresses would be more suitable for you. This top is so breezy and fresh, it feels amazing on hot days. The favorite thing about my outfit are these adorable shoes from Soludos. Although they are not very patriotic they seem to flow perfectly with my outfit. Lastly a cute little hat to complete the outfit , to make it even more patriotic just add some bright red lipstick because after all….it wouldn’t be Fourth of July if we didn’t coordinate with The American Flag🇺🇸! Hope everyone has a safe Fourth of July full of excitement! Let me know what your ideal outfit would be!? Dress? Shorts? Romper?

Love, Elle💋
