Welcome to Elements of Ellis (formerly Kacie’s Kloset)! I am so so so excited to share my new site with you all! I hope you love it! I’m in the process of switching all my social media accounts to the new name so bare with me while I get all that figured out and the links switched. Thanks so much for continuing to read my blog! It seriously means so much to me!

Of course, for the first post of my new blog, I had to wear black ripped jeans 🙂 These are the fabulous new jeans I found to replace my other ones that had faded, and let me tell you…I! LOVE! THESE! JEANS! The fit is amazing! They have enough stretch to make Read More

Before I talk about my pretty new jewelry (well, the necklace isn’t new, but the rings and bracelets are), I have to tell you about the new friend I made while I was taking these pictures. My new friend is…wait for it…keeping waiting…a miniature pig! He is the cutest thing ever and he has the coolest hair cut! I’ve seen him around town and I’ve always wanted to meet him, and my dream finally came true. His owner is the local barber (hence the awesome hair cut) and this location is where the pig goes for walks. It totally made my day. The little pig’s name is Read More

Can we all just take a minute to be super proud of me and maybe give me a little pat on the back? Why you ask? Because I only wore my favorite black/now sorta blue jeans once this week! I know, I know, way to go me! It took all the will power I had to not wear them several times but I did it folks! This is such a huge accomplishment for me. Now I know how Taylor Swift feels every time she wins an award. Read More

I don’t think I’ve ever gone bra shopping without my mom. Even now as an adult, I plan bra shopping trips with my mom. It’s the perfect mother-daughter bonding time. We always get a good laugh when we look at our bras because mine are teeny-tiny and my mom, well, let’s just say she was definitely blessed in that department. A couple years ago, we discovered we were both wearing the wrong size. I was wearing a size too small, and I was feeling pretty proud that I graduated from size AA to A. Woot! Woot! Haha! It’s crazy what a difference it makes when you finally start wearing your correct bra size. Your clothes fit and look way better on your body. Now before each bra shopping trip, my mom and I take measurements so we are sure to always buy the correct size. Kohl’s has a bra fitting guide that makes it super easy to find your size. Last weekend my mom, sister, and I went bra shopping at Kohl’s (ok, and we also bought a couple cute outfits for Stevie Rae and I bought a Keurig…Kohl’s seriously has everything you could ever need), and we came up with the must-have bras for all women, no matter if you have a super small, almost nonexistent chest like me (padding helps ;)) or if you’re larger chested like my mom. Here’s our list of the 6 bras every woman should own:

More white skirt options:

So….I stained my white skirt 🙁 Somewhere between feeding baby food to my niece (She’s the cutest when she eats! She opens her mouth really wide and sticks her tongue out. lol.) and sitting down on the ground at the park to watch my nephew play baseball, I stained it. Maybe it wasn’t wise to do those two activities in a white skirt. Lesson learned. All I can say is thank goodness for Shout.

My Target Swimsuit Favorites:
More Beach Bag Essentials:

 Raise your hand if you’re super excited that the warmer weather is coming. I’m going to go ahead and assume everyone’s hand is raised. When I think of warmer weather, I think of Spring Break, cute swimsuits, the beach/pool, and fun times with my gal pals. I cannot wait for trips to the beach with friends…and Cody, I guess I’ll invite him too. I’ve already got my two new swimsuits and thought it’d be fun to share what I pack in my beach bag for a day at the beach/pool. Pretty much whenever I go to the beach, I stop by Target first to get the essentials because they have everything you would ever need.

This time of year, I’m all about wearing layers that I can peal off throughout the day. The days start our freezing, and by freezing I mean 45 degrees (I don’t know how you peeps live in the below freezing temps…I’m pretty sure you are the toughest people on earth) and then by the afternoon it’s in the 70’s.

I need you guys to settle a debate for me. Cody says my favorite black jeans are actually now blue, but I say they still look black. What do you think? I asked my two best friends and they side with Cody. Sadly, I had to inform them that they are all colorblind because these pants are so obviously black…or so I thought. Now that I look at them closely in the sun, I think they have faded to blue but I’m in denial about it 🙁 I’ve had these jeans for over three years and I wear them almost 24/7 so I guess it makes since that they’d fade, but it Read More
