Thrift Finds

Thrift Finds

Retail therapy is real. There is nothing like decompressing with a day
of pretty new things and imagining all the ways said new things
can add to your wardrobe.

My own retail poison is thrifting. Its such a rush finding a one of a 
kind piece at a great price. Being a college student,
 I am all about finding a great style steal!

Lately, I have been finding great jacket pieces. I think no matter
how into thrifting you are, jackets are a good way to go.

A thrifted jacket is an easy way to add a little extra to any outfit.

I found the sequin blazer at a women's thrift store in Philly. 
I could not pass it up! Who could? 
Literally the perfect addition to any going-out look.

All the way from across the pond...my most grown-up piece, 
the lace green coat. I nabbed this at a market in London.
 I really just use it as decoration in my apartment, it's so pretty!
Sometimes I pair it with a simple blue jean and white shirt but it adds
a great touch to a graphic tee.

The last blazer I picked up at Philly AIDS thrift reminded
me of Tommy Hilfiger and Gigi Hadid's collection. It has a 
chic rock and roll vibe to it.

ellelauri Romper

ellelauri Romper

I'm sure we can all agree the best thing about rompers is the effortlessness that comes with wearing them. When you find one that fits, all you have to do is throw it on and your look is complete.

That is true for this romper given to me from the boutique I work at. It is made of silk which gives it a polished look that you can achieve with little effort. I love the stripes. they are very city chic to me.

I finished the look with black pointed ankle boots, silver bracelets, and a studded leather wrap bracelet for an edgy night-out-on-the-town look.

Ruffled Pink

Ruffled Pink

In my quest to incorporate more girlier or, what I am now calling
romantic pieces, into my wardrobe I picked up this pink ruffled top
 on sale at Topshop.

It is the prettiest shade of pink, but the ruffled shoulders and
bell sleeves are what I love the most. Throwing it on with a pair
of jeans gives you an effortlessly chic and flirty look

For a dressier look, I would add a pair of strappy heels to this outfit
and for a warmer day white shorts would easily pull this look together.

Casually Unexpected

Casually Unexpected


I have been wanting to put a day look together with this thrifted blue tweed mini-skirt. 
The skirt's potential functionality inspired me. You could very easily dress it up,
 but my vision for the skirt was more of a street look. Something a bit more casual and unexpected.
I paired the mini with a pajama style top. It has a laid back fit but the black and white stripes
keep it chic. I mentioned in a previous post that a pajama style top is an effortless way to look put together. 
This look was all about contrasts from the different textures of the two pieces, the top is a thin chiffon material and the mini is tweed, to the color combo. I love how the black and white stripes work with the mixed blue of the mini. It works because blue, in my eyes, is a pop of color but pairs like a neutral.

Brighton is Bliss

Brighton is Bliss

My first Saturday in England I hopped on a train from Victoria station headed out of London and towards the coast. 
Toward to the stone pebbled beaches, candy painted shacks,
and whimsical old roads of Brighton.

If you ever get the chance to go I urge you to go! I have
 never felt so at peace. 

I wore this periwinkle and flower printed romper. 
It knots up at the front, it's loose, it's playful,
 and perfect for a day at the beach.
I have been trying to incorporate more "girly" pieces
 like this into my wardrobe. It can be dressed up with a pair
 of heels and layered chains or a more casual look like I
 sported with Converse.
