Hey Girl, Hey
Photographer – Jen Jean Pierre.
If you don’t already know me. My name is Elle and I’m returning from a 4 year blogging break. I felt that itch to get creative again, I miss talking about clothes, sharing recipes and most I missed interacting with like minded folks.
So, whats been up? Well, I’ve been keeping a low profile and only posting on Instagram, adjusting to my 30’s and still trying to figure it all out.
I’ve been through an interesting four years. During that time I’ve had ups and downs. I’ve made friends, strengthened bonds, lost some friends too. However, the experience is a part of life and I adjusted.
My biggest flex in the past 4 years, I started therapy. I figured out what works for me in terms of self care. I’ve created routines, and learned about my coping styles to stress. I wondered if I myself was a good friend and decided to change some possibly toxic traits about myself as well. I looked change in the eye and faced it. Luckily, a lot of my friends understood me through the down times, and really showed up for me. God was looking out for me especially when I had no idea why certain things happened.
I learned a lot about myself being in a relationship romantically. Whew, was that a test! I won’t get into that here.
As a daughter, niece, and granddaughter I’ve been working on becoming a better me for my family. In a nutshell the past 4 years has been a roller coaster of emotions. The good, the bad and the ugly. However, so thankful to my creator to understand that my ups and downs made me a better me.
I hope the content I have planned is cool enough for you to share, and come back for more. Until next time…
Now, Lets get into this fit. This skirt was a recent buy at Target. I’ve been buying a lot of Target! Target seems to get it right this spring. I saw a lot of light fabrics, stone colors, and pants to die for. The slip skirt trend is nothing new, but I never had the courage to wear them. One reason, I never felt they looked “right” on my body. On the website, this color is listed as red. If I had to guess this would classify as orange, copper, rust. Target has a few items in this color range for spring. I can’t wait to share the awesome pants I got from them as well.
Here, I paired my slip skirt with a VERY OLD and I guess what’s considered Spice Girls Vintage Tee. I was so obsessed with the Spice Girls. I’ve had this shirt since elementary school. I’m still a bit uncomfortable with my belly…sue me.
To feel like this outfit was flattering enough for me, I decided to layer puffy bomber jacket that I purchased from BooHoo years ago. These boots, you might remember if you were an OG Eat.Style.Play reader. These boots are super old, but still my go to this day. I’m a sucker with white soled shoes and refuse to let them go.
