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!

5 Things You Must Do During Summer

FIVE THINGS YOU MUST DO DURING SUMMER!!

1. A day at the fair! 🎡🎠

If you have not gone to the fair during the summer then.. well.. you’re missing out on summer ladies and gents! It’s filled with fun, different kinds of performances, out of the ordinary food and just a good time waiting to happen! Grab your friends and go make sweet summer memories! 

2. Road trip. 🚗🌞

A road trip for me (in CA) would be a weekend getaway to Palm Springs, San Diego, Malibu, Venice, LA, … the list could go on really. My point is, find a nearby city with some things you want to see or do, or maybe book an awesome hotel you just want to lounge at. It always feels like summer when you have that summer trip! 

3. Rent a bike. 🕶🚴🏼

I think renting a bike can only be done during the summer because, who wants to ride a bike when it’s freezing and have that cold wind slap your face? Not me! Biking around is a must do SUMMER activity! I always look forward going to a beach to rent a bike! It’s one of my favorite things to do during the summer! Just make sure you wear lots of sun screen and maybe a hat! 😉

4. Drive-In theatre. 

I live for movie dates with my boyfriend, sisters, friends, cousins, parents, just anyone!!! I’m always up for a movie but have you done a drive-in theatre? Now those are something else!! If you have a bigger car I think it’s a little more fun and comfy but regardless it’s a good time. My boyfriend has blown up a mattress, grabbed blankets, and pillows to create the most comfortable movie situation ever. He also happens to have a truck so it was out in the fresh open air! He always does it the best! 👌🏻 Make sure you snap some pictures of the night because you are going to want to remember, I guarantee it! 

If you’re in California, I usually go to Vineland Theatre 

5.  Guilt free popsicles. 

How can I resist the practically instant refresher of eating a popsicle on an insanely hot day. So many flavors to try that I want to eat popsicles every single day! So why not? – especially if they’re guilt free! Grab your favorite fruit and create your very own popsicles, that are good for you! 😉 They’re extra refreshing in a bikini floating on your favorite float in the pool! Here are some recipes to try!

Those are my five must do things! Hope you try at least one because I know you won’t regret it! 😘 Thanks for stopping by! 
Happy summer, 💛 Elle. 

DIY Chandelier Earrings 

DSC_3723I’ve seen this style of earrings on all of my favorite online shops retailing for around $15-$20 and after making the mistake of actually purchasing them I realized I can totally make some of my very own! I researched on youtube and other blogs, chose my yarn colors, substituted a few things and came up with my own version! So keep reading to find out what you’ll need and what to do! I also created a video tutorial so you can see me in action if you have more questions. Thanks for reading, hope you enjoy and do not hesitate to ask any questions you may have.

Love, ELLE.
