See that chick in the pictures with me? That’s Stevie Rae and she’s my BFF and I’m hers…just read the onesie 🙂 You might remember her from this post when she was only 6 weeks old. Now she’s 8 1/2 months and I can’t believe how much she has grown. And guess what this amazing child did over the weekend?! She walked for the first time! She made it four steps before she started to loose her balance. My sister and I were the only one’s in the room to see it and we started screaming because we were so Read More
Each year, I fight summer and wear jeans the majority of the time, and I end up spending my summer hot and miserable. Jeans + 100 degree weather does not mix. But I think summer has finally gotten the best of me and my jean loving ways. This summer I vow to wear more rompers, dresses, skirts, and shorts…preferably in pretty prints like this floral romper 🙂 I just ordered Read More

So, Cody and I sold our house. Yes, the one we bought just one year ago. I know, we’re crazy and can’t make up our minds about where we want to live. This makes 5 towns in two years. But now we know what we want…I think 🙂 Anyways, we’ve been busy packing and getting all the documents in order to sell, plus starting to look for new places to buy. Let me say, it has been stressful and tiring, and I’ve been in need of a vacation. I even strained my hand muscles lifting heavy boxes (well, heavy to me, light to Cody), and I got a huge bruise on the back of my leg. Needless to say, I was in desperate need to take a break from packing to relax.
While we didn’t have time to go on a sun-filled vacation to the beach, I was bound and determined to bring the sun-filled vacation to our house. It was time for a stay-cation! Our bedroom was my favorite room in our house, so it was nice to get to have a relaxing afternoon lounging in my favorite place as my final farewell to our home. With some fresh fruit, a tropical smoothie, and a magazine, it felt Read More

MORE #TARGETSTYLE FRINGE ACCESSORIES:
If you haven’t noticed already, it is all about fringe this season. Which makes me think my mom can predict the future because she got me a fringe purse a couple years ago. It’s as if she knew that I would need fringe in my life. That woman never ceases to amaze me.
Fringe is the perfect way to add a boho flare to your outfits. No matter your style comfort level, it is so easy to incorporate into your outfits. From earrings to purses to scarves to kimonos, there is something for everyone. And you don’t have to spend a lot of money on it either. You guys, I spent less than $50 at Target for all three of these fringe items! #TargetStyle does Read More
When I was wearing this outfit, a sweet little old lady came up to me and said “Oh, dear! What happened to your jeans? You need a new pair.” I told her ripped jeans are in style now and that I ripped these on purpose (well, I had Cody rip them because he’s crafty and I’m not), and she looked at me like I was crazy. Haha! Anytime I wear my ripped jeans around my grandpa, he says he Read More
I think bright moto jackets might just be my favorite type of spring jackets. Ok, moto jackets are my favorite style no matter what the season is, so it’s no surprise that I love them in bright hues for spring. But there’s something extra special about colored ones. So far the colors I have are mint, powder blue, bright blue, and red. The bright colors say sweet and cheery but the moto style says dark and dangerous. But mainly Read More
When I was in high school, I used to wear flare jeans/wide leg jeans (with heels) pretty much every day. I remember when people started wearing skinny jeans and I was like, “Ew! I do not like skinny jeans!” I think I even ranted to my mom about how horrible they were and that nobody should ever wear them. Haha! I obviously got over that because now they’re my fave 🙂 But I have still always held on to my flare jeans and I’m so happy they’re a huge trend again this season. Also, I have a love-hate relationship with/a weird fear of off the shoulder tops. But more on that later…
Each year, Mother’s Day sneaks up on me. But not this year! No way jose! I already got my mom her present. Did I get her something in this gift guide? Hmmm…I can’t say because my mom reads my blog posts 🙂 I usually get my mom her favorite perfume but she hasn’t ran out of it yet so I couldn’t buy my go-to gift. My mom is in for a surprise this year 🙂 Oh and you see the little ‘mom’ and ‘grama’ charm? There is also an ‘aunt’ one which I think I need. That being said, I hereby Read More
I am so in love with my tropical print jacket! This is one of those outfits that I love so much, I could wear it every day for the next month. If only it were socially acceptable to wear the same outfit day after day after day after day after day after day. But instead I only wore it two days in a row. First to the grocery store and then on a date night with Cody. (If you follow me on Instagram or Snapchat-username: elementsofellis- you might have already seen this outfit 🙂 ) We went to Read More
