December Wishes 

When I think of December I think of perfect white snow, hot cocoa with mini marshmallows, sitting by the fire with a ridiculously soft blanket and of course all the pretty lights everywhere you go make this month even more magical. Ever since I was a little girl I always secretly wished that I could be born in December (Definitely not on Christmas though) maybe because every year as a little girl rehearsing for the Nutcracker in ballet I saw the story took place during December and there was snow falling outside of the windows and there were magical lights and a handsome little Nutcracker protecting the house. It just seemed like such a magical month. I also think that is where my infatuation with Nutcrackers began. 🤔I just adored everything during December, it’s simply always been a magical month for me. I put together this adorable little outfit that I believe is perfect for December with all the holiday festivities, perfect for baking little gingerbread cookies or having a gingerbread house contest or cuddling up with your family to watch movies all day long. An open back bodysuit and checkered midi skirt with some nude pumps, simple but still a little dressed up. That’s all for today, thank you for reading everyone, happy holidays! 

Love, Elle  💋

Top 10 Secret Santa Christmas List Suggestions.

Okay, tonight I was feeling extra inspired by my pinterest and thought I would make a list of my top 10 items to purchase for someone for a secret Santa present. I personally never participate in secret Santa, only because I don’t celebrate Christmas but for those around me that do including my boyfriend, some friends and some family this list is for you! Simply click on the picture to get to the item!

  1. Everyone needs one of these amazing bottles, everything hot stays hot and everything cold remains cold! It’s seriously the best thing I’ve ever discovered and you can’t go wrong with giving this as a gift ever.

2. Okay, who wouldn’t love this phone case, like really?! Especially for that girl who is obsessed with the French and those gold star sparkles floating around are just adorable!

3. HB card holders are perfect for the girl who only carries around a little purse and has no space inside her bag..like me! You could also personalize it with her initials making extra special.

4. This book is beyond the cutest book ever created and perfect for that girl who loves party planning. It will give you the best tips ever!

5. Kate Spade seriously needs to stawwwp with the adorable things they make! How cute is this beanie, perfect for that casual everyday outfit. I envision this beanie being worn with some black denim jeans, nikes or flats, a white tee, some loose curls, and denim jacket.

7. Every girl uses lipstick or lipgloss, my favorite lipstick color for MAC is hands down the color ‘hug me’ because it’s so natural.

8. Okay my greatest obsession is sleeping masks to get a good night rest, never fails me.

9. Candles are the perfect gift but could be tricky since it’s a scent but for those candle lovers, this scent from voluspa is my FAVVVVVV!!!

Bell Sleeve Sweater 

Hello gals! Today I’m sharing another adorable sweater I’ve found. Lately I’ve been all about sweaters, mostly because I’ll be moving to San Francisco and I know it will be colder there.( Major squeal of excitement 🙊) I just had to have this one because it’s so unique with the wider bell sleeves, I think it might be some sort of a trend right now but I haven’t seen too many of these type so I had to get this sweater. Not to mention this sweater is pretty thick it will keep you nice and toasty all day. I paired my sweater with some wax jeans I love wearing because it always makes any look instantly edgy👌🏻 without trying too hard. I love tucking in baggy sweaters or shirts only a bit because it also gives any outfit a more effortlessly casual look. Now my booties are seriously my favorite, they have studs or rhinestones on the back of the heel. I love different pieces like these boots because it’s rare you’ll see anyone else with them and you’ll feel like you have a unique piece. I also love these hoop earrings I’m wearing, they are so dainty and simple. Sometimes I feel like they blend in or hide in my hair which is why I’d rather wear them when my hair is in a bun. Lastly my bag I picked up was my gift with purchase hobo Henri bendel bag I adore! Since it was free I usually use it for my little pup’s things but today I had a few things I needed to carry so I grabbed this hobo bag and ran out my door. Well that’s all for my outfit hope everyone has an amazing weekend! ❤️ 

Love, Elle.

Off The Shoulder Sweater

Hello everyone today I am sharing this gorgeous sweater. I loved the off the shoulder trend during the summer and it makes me so happy seeing this trend roll over into the fall season. I was a little skeptical about this idea during fall because I didn’t think I would stay warm but…. yup I was wrong. This sweater is so warm, soft and comfy I’m in love 😍!! Now that I’ll be moving to San Francisco I have to start adding more sweaters to my closet too so it’s perfect for what I need. I think this sweater can easily be dressed up or down! I’m already planning to wear it with a white pencil skirt so maybe I’ll style it for you guys too. Another one of my fabulous finds are these hoop earrings I discovered at Nordstrom they are such a good price and I’ve been wearing them nonstop but they look especially cute with my hair up in a messy bun. Well that’s basically it for my outfit talk to you all soon. 💕 

Love, Elle. 💗
