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.

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,

4.12.15 OOTD While Running Errands


So the 10k finally hit my husband this morning. He woke up so sore and tired that we had to stay home from church. After four more hours of rest and a round of pain killers, I was able to get him out of the room for some lunch with a side of more meds. Since we still needed to grocery shop and do laundry, I decided to wear something easy to move in from this week’s capsule. Since I wasn’t going anywhere special, I skipped on wearing the slacks for the skinny jeans. The tiger shirt made another appearance with the collared pink shirt wrapped around my waist, something I don’t usually do with dress shirts. I’m happy with the results. Let me know what you think. If you have tried a weekly capsule, I’d love to see what items you picked out.

Have courage,

4.8.15 Today’s Outfit (Weekly Wardrobe Capsule)


Today I wore a grey shirt that I refashioned with a pair of skinny 7 jeans from Macy’s and my new DSW boots. My co-workers seemed to really like my shirt. It was all grey but I added strips of fabric from a cardigan I found at the thrift store. It’s always pretty cool at my job so I layered the shirt on top of a camisole. Let me know what you all think!

Weekly Capsule April 8 – 15


Ok, so I had to start my capsule mid week this time around but here we go. The items I chose this week. I decided to make pink my accent color and experiment with layering this week. I’m not sure how well things will pan out but I feel pretty hopeful about them. I also bough two pairs of shoes! I still need a few more pairs to have enough variety in that area. I only have a few pairs, most of them being casual, so the next pair or two will be dressy.

Have courage,
Elle

Summer Combo #6


6My Monday was pretty busy. Transitioning into a new position at work mixed with packing up our house demands flexibility. Today I settled on this pink collared shirt and jeans combo with sporty shoes for variety. I didn’t feel like fussing with my hair so I pulled out a colorful scarf and kept things moving. –Elle
