Productive Summer OOTD

Elleword - Productive Summer OOTD

Yesterday I got lots of work done for a new video based class that I’m going to teach on Skillshare as a way to make passive income. It’s the first of many! I recorded myself working as well as an intro and conclusive video. Now all that’s left are the voiceovers. I hope to finish those before my interview today for a part time marketing assistant gig.

I wore a thrifted Rue 21 peach colored top with lace netting on the shoulders. My skater skirt is from my lounge and fitness thrift haul. I felt so flirty and cute in this. I wore brown wedge shoes (not shown) as Brandon and I hit the Salvation Army to buy supplies for the camping trip I’m chaperoning next week.

Gone on any thrift shops lately? I’d love to see what you bought. Leave me a link or comments below.

Elleword - my thrifted peach shirt looked great with this skater skirt. You don't have to spend lots of money to look good.

Freedom OOTD of an Entrepreneur

Elleword - Freedom OOTD

Today I want to celebrate my freedom, not just democratically but the kind that comes with working for yourself. I’m still in the beginning stages of my company but building it has been a great experience. I landed an interview tomorrow for a marketing assistant gig that will take up 10 hours a week. If I get the job, I’ll have a nice little stream of income to use while I build my own clientele. Heres something you’re likely to see me wearing this summer as I work on company projects and marketing materials.

Sticking to my love of sustainable fashion, I got this top from my mom when I helped her purge her closet. I think I bought these shorts at retail price but it’s hard to remember. Working at home means you don’t have to wear shoes!

Self Portrait OOTD


Today I shot a video, got gussied up and took some images of myself for my website and a marketing campaign that I’m working on. I thought I’d share my OOTD with the images I took. They aren’t the usual 360 but I hope you get the gist.

I wore a new combination today, lace and floral. I wanted to do a semi-monochromatic look so I chose colors within the same color family. I think it turned out to be a success. What do you think? Leave a comment below!

July 25, 15 OOTD: Navy and Zebra Stripes


Brandon and I did a lot of running around this weekend. By the time Sunday came, we’d bought several games for the wii and movies. I also connected with two Japanese women in the US that want to do a language exchange with me! I’m really excited about that since I’m studying Japanese independently. I also found some Youtube channels to follow along with as I learn.

It was really hot so I opted for these navy lace shorts from a brand called Alt B. and my thrifted Zebra top and brown sandals. I really loved this look (my husband raved over it too 😀 ). I will definitely be wearing this combo again. My shoulders are naturally broad and seemed to stand out in this OOTD but I’ve learned to embrace that, no shoulder pads required. Let me know what you think in the comment section.

Have courage,

My Friend Elle went with lace navy blue shorts and a thrifted zebra top for today's ootd

Weekly Capsule: May 5 – 12


It’s been a few weeks since the last time I did a capsule so I’m jumping back on it this week. I’ve been doing lots of work on getting my business and YouTube channel up and running. I’ve been feeling really productive and excited about it all. I’m really doing this and I truly believe that it’s going to succeed. Ok, back to the capsule. I picked out this week’s items based on patterns and textures instead of colors. I just grabbed the things I love most: lace and bold patterns. Let me know what you guys think about this round of picks.

Have courage,
Elle
