Online Shop Obsession. 

Hi, hi! 👋🏼 I have a fun style post to share with a fun online shop called Shop Maxwell. I’m sure you’ve seen them on Instagram or Pinterest and have probably even repinned some of their clothing items! 🙃 Well I definitely have and so I decided it was time to do some shopping! I’m so busy I don’t have time and definitely don’t want to make time to go into any store to go shopping. Therefore online shops have become my best friend. 👯 This shop has so many different pieces for every occasion and that’s when you know you found a good one! 😉 I found dresses I could wear to church, cocktail dresses, trendy pieces, simple tshirts, they have it all! Lately I’ve stopped shopping for anything tight and restricting because I need the movement at work so when I found this blouse I thought it was so perfect for my life! Not only could I wear it to work but I’d wear it on a casual day out with shorts! Completely versatile. One of the reasons I chose this top is because I adore the eyelet fabric and the detail on the sleeve I feel so put together and pretty in this top! 💁🏼 I especially love the color, I love pairing light colors with other light colors so I went with white denim and nude wrap heels! It’s so comfortable but still very everyday girl cute!  Happy Monday guys! 

Love, Elle.

Five Habits Of A Confident Woman 

It’s almost the end of this year and if there’s something I’ve learned it’s how to be a more confidant woman. I thought I’d share five habits that can help you be more confident too. As well as some inspo for a transition Fall look! Well let’s get right into the habits! 

1. Seek Challenges. Not everything you do will be a piece of cake, and that’s OK, so don’t let challenges stop you. If there’s something you want to do, like maybe start up that blog you’ve been thinking about or change your career path, start that new workout class, it’s never too late! I’ve found if that’s where your passion is you’re most likely to succeed and be happy while doing it. If it’s not what you thought it would be, don’t give up, keep going and learn from your mistakes to eventually get where you want to be. 

2. Do NOT compare yourselves to others. This can be such a toxic habit to have and these days it can be so easy to fall in this habit. Instead of comparing and feeling jealous of what other girls have you can make the choice of supporting women, networking with them. You might even spark a brand new friendship. Getting inspired by other women is a much better habit to have! I love finding gorgeous girls who have similar styles as I do and following along in their life I always get inspired to try a new look or visit a new place!  

3. Make Goals. Making goals is so important but simply deciding you want a new car can seem so impossible, you have to have steps in achieving that goal. So you can start with saving a certain amount each month until you get the amount you need for that new car. Trust me! Once you mark that first check mark in the very first step to a new car or whatever it is you want, you gain a bar of confidence in your life! 

4. Respect others and yourself. Okay, this is so important in every women’s life. I think respecting others should be a part of everyone’s life and if done, it would stop so many fights in our world but I suppose it’s easier said then done. 

I’ve never been one to say anything negative about another girl or person in general. Maybe it’s the Jesus living in me or the desire to be a righteous women in the eyes of God, like Noah, being right with God and right with man he found favor in the eyes of God because of his righteousness. Who am I to push down another person for any reason at all even behind their backs. I will always respect others upfront and behind their back. 

Then there is respecting yourself, be confident in who you are, what you believe in and always think twice about making decisions. One simple way of respecting yourself is by elliminating cuss words from your vocabulary I’ve never been one to use them and I’ve found that it’s keeps me positive in my everyday life which has led to confidence. 

5. Fake it and you’ll make it. Oh my goodness, this is definitely something to live by! Recently I went from working in an office, sitting on a desk, in front of a computer almost ALL day, being basically all to my self besides meetings to all of a sudden, working with children! I’m pretty good with kids but I’m not great so I was so nervous! I had a week of intensive training to prepare but still felt totally unprepared! Lol Receiving my very first patient was the scariest thing of my life but I knew the parents didn’t know their child was my first patient so what did I do? You guessed it. I faked it and I’ve made it, so cheesey but it’s true. I went in feeling so nervous but with practice and time, I’m confident in what I’m doing. Never go in doubting yourself because your mind is so powerful and can bring you down. Instead go in telling yourself “you can” and you’ll do great in whatever you do. 
Habits 1, 3, and 5 are ones I’ve experienced this year intensely and the others are just a part of my everyday life. My list of habits can go on so I’ll have to share more later but for now you can try these out and let me know how they work for you! 😉 

As always, thank you for stopping by and I hope you follow along to get more inspo in life and style! 😘 Love, Elle.

3 Trends You Can Mix Together. 

Hi everyone, happy August! August for me is all about taking risks and getting out of my comfort zone, trying out new things in my life! With that being said, Im not sure what it is about this outfit but it’s just one of those “cool girl” outfits and I’m all about it! It’s almost a trend overboard, but I’m trying something new out and I think it all works together perfectly. I’ve seriously only worn this hat a few times but I love it so much, I always try to incorporate it in an outfit but I end up changing my mind last minute. This time I’m glad I just went for it and I actually got a few compliments so I suppose it turned out good! 👍🏻 Big ruffled sleeves are trending this season a lot too and it’s such a fun detail. Now my jeans are so fun, I love the fit and style. I’m not sure what the statement trend of this outfit is…🤔 but I think these three make this outfit what it is!

All checked out.

Checkered fabric is in for fall 2016 so I thought it would be appropriate to feature this adorable little checkered button up. I am actually wearing this top over a white dress which leads me into sharing a major style tip during fall that I think every girl knows and loves, layering! I layered this top over my dress, this necklace over my top, and this jacket over it all. These booties are also a perfect fall transition essential piece every girl should have. When the weather is still a little warm no one wants to be wearing full on boots so booties are perfect. That sums up my outfit for today, hope everyone has an amazing day!

Love, Elle!

Style of Autumn

I have one more item from Whistle & Wild that I’m styling and it’s this absolutely gorgeous dress. This dress is such a statement piece I adore it so much and it’s completely my style. It’s such a flirty, bohemian, feminine, and beyond elegant dress with a southern touch. It’s such a lightweight fabric making it an ideal piece to wear during those warmer Autumn days. Since this dress is such a statement piece I kept all my accessories in the neutral/ brown color tones allowing this dress to take all the glory and attention. I can picture myself wearing this dress in Texas for afternoon brunch or wine tasting somewhere beautiful, I’ve actually never been to Texas but I’m planning a trip very soon and this little dress is definitely going into my suitcase when I do. My 15% off discount code “MICHELLEwild” is still active until October 28th so once again hurry, hurry gals before it’s too late.
