36/365 Wall in the Hall

Wearing the shirt Brandon bought for me on our honeymoon, it says Coacoa Beach twice on the front of it. That’s the first beach we ever went to together. The second was a beach in Cuba this past June. Third was Little Elm Beach a few months back (beaches in Texas, who knew?!). After hearing the lyrics of a Joe song, Brandon asked me if there really were beaches with black sand in the world. I told him yes and he added that to his list of places to see in the world. Life’s a beach.

Thirsty Thursday


In case you were wondering, I’m thirsty for more out of life haha. My phone died midday so I hardly captured any moments from the day, sorry. But I did manage to get a few before the battery bit the dust. First, here’s my OOTD.

Elleword - My gifted sweater from New York & Company paired with a thrifted vintage denim skirt and Bean Pole bag. I love these gold coach shoes!
This skirt is so comfy!

 

To get the day started, I hit the library and the library in search of some language books to help me study up on my Japanese and French. Yea, I’m learning a few languages all at once, trying to jump start my brain, hahah. I feel it’s working. I’ve linked up with some language exchange partners who will help me practice what I’ve learned on Skype and FaceTime. Until I get a decent grasp on the languages, I’m mostly helping them with English right now hahah.

I also scored an intern recently! Her name is Sakura. She’s a friend of mine and talented makeup artist trying to find out what direction she wants to take with her career. I’m hoping that spending time with me will help her learn a few things and find the inspiration she needs. We went out and captured a mixed use space to help the owners start a photography residency program. It’s so open and bright and empty. Perfect for a photographer or videographer who needs a simple spot to work a few hours a week without paying an arm and a leg in studio fees. Once we finished working, we grabbed some food. These sandwiches were delicious!

The pulled chicken sandwiches we had for lunch at XO Coffee in Plano, TX

That’s all for today,

Careless OOTD in June: My Nike Zip Up


Sometimes you just don’t care about the way  you are dressed. All you want is to be comfortable and to watch Youtube videos all day. Is that too much to ask? If you have bills and obligations, yea, it is. But while I’m tending to that big list of responsibilities, I’m going to do it in tennis shoes.

The other day I went to work dressed like this. The dress code at my job is almost non-existent, luckily for me. It’s freezing half of the time so i grabbed a camisole and added this purple Nike zip up jacket. I put on some grey jeans and gold Coach tennis shoes because that’s what my hand landed on when I went into my closet. Since my clothes were pretty much random, I put on some make up and jewelry to keep things interesting and headed out the door. What kind of clothes/looks do you wear on days when you just don’t care about fashion? Do you have those kind of days or are you a well polished fashionista every day? Clearly, I’m not there yet. hahah.

Have courage,
Elle

5.12.15 OOTD: Denim and Denim


So I diverted from the capsule this week but I had a good reason. I went thrift shopping and couldn’t wait to start wearing my new threads. Hence, today I wore this denim Old Navy top along with the Seven jeans and Coach shoes. I forgot to wear ear rings so I put on some red lipstick and the peach colored belt from Forever 21. I think it worked out pretty well. What do you think?

5.9.15 OOTD: Thrift Shopping and Youtube


Today my sister, her husband and I went thrift shopping together. We captured some of our day on camera and I plan to create a few videos for Youtube later. We had a good time and I racked up 16 items for just under $47!! My sister loved the aztec printed tube skort so I gave it to her as a gift. 🙂 I wore my black knit sweater (thrift store find) over my lace razorback top from Forever 21. Then I just slipped on my blue slacks from the gap and gold Coach shoes. This is a new combination for me but I think it worked out well.

Have courage,
Elle

5.8.15 OOTD Casual Threads for Friday


TGIF. I wanted to be comfortable today so I opted for the studded black Calvin Klein jeans from Macy’s. This top was given to me by a friend and the cardigan (which isn’t in my capsule this week) is from the Salvation Army (an American Eagle product). The Coach hightops were given to me by my Mom when I was in college. That’s that, let’s start the weekend!

Have courage,
Elle
