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. Grandpa went with me to take blog pictures and he had me cracking up in-between shots because he Read More

HOW TO LAYER NECKLACES + A GIVEAWAY

Personalized Wishbone Necklace ? Merci Maman (Enter the giveaway below to win your own!)

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

I have a confession to make: I LOVE neutrals! Ok, you probably already knew that about me since the majority of my outfits consist of neutrals. In the wintertime, you can’t get me out of black, but as the weather warms up, I am all about my summer whites. White is just so crisp and fresh and makes you look more tan. And trust me, this pasty, pale girl needs all the help she can get when it comes to looking tan. I was in Target the other day, you know, to buy the essentials like dog food and shampoo, when I spotted a huge section of all white clothes. #TargetStyle has so many gorgeous white items right now! To make a long story short…I forgot to buy dog food, but I added a few new white pieces to my closet 🙂

I love rocking an all white outfit for a summer date night with my main squeeze. Whether we’re going for a stroll downtown for ice cream (my favorite kind of date night) or out to a fancy dinner (Cody’s favorite kind of date night because I’m not the greatest cook. Haha!), my trusty whites never fail me. I have two simple tips/tricks for Read More
