The moment I saw this floral romper, I was in love and I knew exactly what I wanted to wear it with. The only problem…I didn’t own the shoes. Womp! Womp! I’ve been wanting a pair of “barely there nude strappy sandal heels” (what would you call this style of shoe?) for a long time so I decided to finally order this pair from Zappos that has been in my cart for months. And guess what? The very same day I ordered the shoes, I went to Target and found an identical pair for less than half the price. I know Zappos has an amazing Read More
My friend since I was in 1st grade (she was in 2nd) got married over the weekend and I was in the wedding (if you follow me on Snapchat @elementsofellis, you might have seen some of the wedding fun). Since I was headed to my hometown for the weekend, I decided to go a day early to spend time with my 88 year old grandpa (the one whose name I have engraved on my wishbone necklace from yesterday’s post). We had the best time watching movies, eating cookies, going to our favorite Chinese restaurant, and running errands together.

I have become so obsessed with dainty necklaces. I love that they are so delicate by themselves but can also be layered together to make an effortless statement. I have several dainty necklaces so I’m always mixing and matching them. But if you ask me, you can’t just throw on all your necklaces and expect it to look good. I have some tips and tricks to created an effortless layered necklace look.
1. Vary your necklace lengths: Have at least one short (14-16 inches), one medium (18-20 inches), and one long (30-36 inches). With a long necklace you can also double it to make it look like you are wearing two necklaces. I was missing a long one in my collection but finally got the wishbone necklace from Merci Maman. This necklace comes in three different lengths so you can select which ever length you need…and guess what? If you keep scrolling down, you can enter the giveaway to win your own wishbone necklace!
As I’m putting this post together, I’m nodding off to sleep and it’s only 10:30pm. I’m pretty sure I’m secretly 90-years-old because I can’t stay up late and I need a lot of sleep. Anyways, on to my cute kimono. Don’t you just love kimonos?! It’s been way super hot here (like over 100 degrees) and all I want to wear is a simple tank + shorts. I love that kimonos add extra style to an outfit but they’re so loose fitting and lightweight that they don’t overheat you. Also, my favorite denim shorts Read More
