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. 

The color of summer. 

I know recently I posted a white lace romper but I have a confession…I can never and will never deny a beautiful white romper. Besides, this romper is by far my favorite romper in my closet and for good reasons too that I’m sure you can pretty much guess. The details!!!!🙌🏼👌🏼👍🏼 I adore all the details of this romper and must admit the price is pretty amazing too! Since the romper does all the talking there’s really no need for accessories unless they are dainty pieces I wouldn’t overdo it for this romper. Just a few bracelets and my watch and my favorite ZARA sale steal, nude gladiator sandals! The best accessory has got to be my cutie Monaco Rafael of course! 🐶  As always details provided at the bottom!

Love, Elle💋

Summer Spice

I have always opted for skirts and dresses ever since my adolescence so finding new ways to style my skirts and dresses excites me🙊! !Today I am here with a cute way to add some spice to your styling ways of life! I know you can probably guess what this spice I speak of is…and yes, you’re right…I added a little knot to my basic tee instead of tucking it in! It’s such a simple detail but automatically adds a little spice✨! It instantly makes a more chic, summery, fresh touch to any look. I actually found this little trick while browsing through Pinterest, which I do regularly, I’m Pinterest addicted!! I can also guarantee this trick will keep you a lot more cool during the day..trust me! There’s no need to do a picture tutorial because I think everyone knows how to tie a knot, it’s simple, simple🤗! Hope you try it and love it as much as I do! Have a wonderful week!!

Love, Elle💋

Elle’s Tips & Tricks when running late

Have you ever woken up late with no time to do your hair or your makeup? I am guilty of this at least once a week and it’s usually monday morning for me!😁 I wanted to share a few tricks of mine when I’m running late.👌🏼 One thing I try to do monday morning is choose a dress so that I don’t have to put much effort and time into actually styling an outfit! Another thing I do is style a braid or bun, here I made a ponytail braid! It’s also a great alternative to applying heat to your hair so I’m all in! As for makeup, keep it minimal, you’re already running short on time! Maybe even consider letting your skin breathe for a day! When I’m fresh faced I make sure to moisturize my skin and put sunscreen since my face will be more exposed and vulnerable to the sun. This day I simply added Chanel Le Volume mascara, touched up my brows with the Anastasia eyebrow pencil, brushed on some pink swoon MAC powder blush and was running out the door for work! I remember I used to feel so insecure without makeup but then one day I wore nothing and was dreading all the weird looks I would get…but no one noticed!! All my friends said I looked the same so that just goes to show we create our own insecurities! I know it’s only a few tricks but when you’re running late only a few are necessary, hope they help you too.

Love, Elle💋
