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. 

How To Style a White Dress

Hello, is anyone else out there extremely sad about fourth of July being over?! I gotta say the month of July is one of my favorites, it’s like my preppy style comes out to play and I enjoy every second of it especially for the fourth! Plus my family barbecues almost every weekend as I tan the day away in the pool, what more can I possibly ask for! My outfit for today was worn on an insanely hot July day but I felt cool all day wearing this dress because well…duh it’s a dress! I love an all white dress because the outfit options are endless, you can go for something dressy or casual! You can even experiment with different makeup/hair looks. I wore this dress as preppy as it could possibly get keeping it quite classy, I felt like a modern day Jackie Kennedy with my silk neck scarf and adorable little straw purse. I also wore these little nude sandals that I seriously wear everywhere because they are SO, SO, SO, SO comfortable, I’m so happy I purchased these babies! For my hair I did some loose waves but eventually pulled it up into a ponytail.. the heat was getting to me with all that hair! I just can’t do this long hair ….especially during the summer. I haven’t applied heat in about one week and a half and it feels like it grew five inches… I thought I wanted long hair…but then I just don’t really like the feeling. I’m going to try to contain myself from cutting it though but stay tuned in case I do decide to chop it off!  Direct links for items below.

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!

Details at the end.

Love, Elle. 💋
