White, Ruffle Dress for $39!!

DRESS --ONLY $39!! Similar dress HERE (Only $49!) Similar HERE for $59! SHOES by Marc Fisher. These are serious Chloe dupes! Similar style HERE. My favorite WATCH

What's up, friends? I am having the BEST time in Cali with my best friend, Laura! It has been so nice to spend time with her & catch up. 

Today's post is all about the sweetest ruffled, one-shoulder white dress. This is going to be the perfect dress for summer because it's simple yet classy. I love dresses that look like you worked hard... but in reality, I just grabbed it out of my closet and went! AND the best part is, this dress is on sale for $39 & available in all sizes.

I've linked a couple similar dresses that are also great prices! 

I paired with the best shoes. Actually, yesterday I wore these out shopping, and a shoe salesman at Neiman thought they were Chloe!! They are AMAZING dupes and affordable! They also come in a lot of colors. I'm thinking I will get a couple more pairs here soon! 

These photos were shot at the gorgeous, Villa Marre in Little Rock. The whole SOMA area is just so cool. It's full of the most beautiful, historical homes. Such a treat to see the area being revitalized! 

I hope everyone has a great week. I'm already dreading leaving San Francisco. I could spend some serious time in this city. I feel like no matter how many times I visit or how much time I spend, it's really never enough. xx

Spring Picks w/ Red Dress Boutique

Denim SKIRT | White, ripped JEANS ($55!) | Saddle bag PURSE ($38)-- serious Chloe look-alike!! 

Spring is blooming & that means it's time to head to the boutique to pick out the perfect wardrobe must-haves for the season! Luckily, the boutique you're looking for is online! 

I'm teaming up with Red Dress Boutique to bring you some of my favorite pieces! Head over to http://rstyle.me/n/cigv5mb7gq7
to check out my picks from their selection! I've linked a few items above, and the clothes in the pictures are all from their new items! 

I am in love with these pieces here! First, the cutest black and white, gingham top. It has a super cute tie around the front. Paired with a denim skirt (spring MUST) and a saddle cross-body purse! 
Second, a striped, blue and white top. I love the back on this top! The top is long and flowy and has a cut in the back! I wore velvet sneakers to make the perfect casual look. This would be great for a day of errands or a trip to the ballpark! 
Third, for a girls' night out. The sweetest blue, ruffled top with shoulder cut-outs. Paired with ripped front, white jeans and peep-toe booties! 

So I am currently in San Francisco with my best friend from high school (and forever), Laura!! Pics to come later this week! Laura lives in Paris and works for Céline--aka she has the coolest job in the world! We became best friends my senior year of high school when she was a foreign exchange student. Every year we travel back and forth between the States and Paris to see each other. Since she just finished up Paris Fashion Week, she was in dire need of a holiday so we found ourselves on the west coast! We are having the absolute best time, and we haven't stopped laughing (or eating) since we got here! 

I hope everyone else has a great week! xx

Blue Dress for Spring

SIMILAR ($30!) dress & HERE ($21) & HERE & HERE (Obsessed with this one!) | Luci HEELS by Dolca Vita. Similar in WEDGES | LIPSTICK by MAC--shade is Brave Red. 

You know, few things are more frustrating than taking the time to shoot and blog an outfit that's NO LONGER ONLINE! Seriously, it's pretty annoying. So I want to first apologize that this adorable dress is no longer available, BUT don't worry because I wouldn't dare leave you completely high and dry *cue Radiohead.* 

I have linked FOUR dresses very similar to this one! Most of which are so cheap you feel like you're making money on it by purchasing. <----sounds like something my dad would say. 

I know you need a cute and girlie blue dress for those warm days ahead! So definitely check out the one's linked under the photos and on the widget below! I promise you won't be disappointed. 

I also linked my red lipstick. The shade is Brave Red by MAC & has to be my all-time favorite red lipstick! Shop the jewelry linked below! 

This week I was named UsTrendy's Trendsetter of the week. I am so thankful to be granted this awesome honor! Read my interview with them here: http://www.ustrendy.com/blog/ustrendys-trendsetters-of-the-week-elle-harper/

It's finally Friday, and the weekend has been calling for quite some time now! This weekend will be full of activities for me... and even maybe a little bit of traveling! So I am chomping at the bit! 

Have a great weekend xx

Black, Floral Dress

DRESS Black, Floral from Asos : SIMILAR for $61! Also similar to this Free People DRESS (I also have this and LOVE!) Available in multiple colors. Also HERE on Nordstrom. SIMILAR here from Revolve ($98) | WEDGES (these come in 5 colors!) Luci HEELS by Dolce Vita : Similar in WEDGE

Happy Wednesday! <3 

I am loving all things floral print on today's blog post! This dress is so much fun and is really getting me excited for spring! I love all the bright, neon-like flowers. This year I have been so drawn to nearly any floral print. I've linked several similar floral print, black dresses above and to the widget below! All in different price areas, too! All the colors in the dress also make it easy to mix and match with accessories and shoes. 

So these shoes have been my go-to pair. I've worn them like 3 times a week since getting them. They are $170, but I definitely think they are worth every penny. They also come in 5 colors so there's no excuse to not have outfits to match! The perfect pair for dress up or dress down. 

Over the last few weeks I have been driving back and forth between my house and my parents' house. All to get ready for my big move. It's unreal all that goes into preparing for a cross-country move. I'm literally selling 90% of my old clothes. Luckily, I have a really nice mom who's been so helpful with uploading things on Poshmark with me! Over the next few weeks I'll be adding a TON of new items! So keep checking, and I'll keep you posted on big adds! 

I left their house again today, but this time I left without my car. My dad is selling it :( well, you know, because grad school, NYC and apartments are expensive. I've been driving my car since summer before junior year of college, and it's been so much fun to have. I feel kind of silly being sad about seeing it go, but I've had so many amazing memories with friends and adventures in that car! 

I have a lot heading up over this next week so keep checking in! xx

My Spring Break Picks

1. Mar Y Sol Woven Tote
2. Blue Life Swim Top Bottoms
3. White Romper with Tassels 
4. Soludos Hot Dog Slip-ons
5. Currently Offline iPhone Case by Casetify 
6. Free People OTS Lace Top
7. Pom Pom Floppy Hat

9. Sunnies
10. Dolce Vita Block Heel Sandal 
11. Pom Pom Choker (under $40!)
12. Pom Pom Tassel Cover-up (under $40!) 

Today I'm sharing my spring break picks! These are items I think are absolutely must-haves for my next vacation! 

What's a trip to the beach without a new beach bag? This one is so cute, and it's a great pop of color to take from the beach to a night out. There's also the cutest lace Free People top. I can't get enough of anything OTS or lace these days! 

I've also been eyeing these Soludos slip-ons for forever now! I think it's about time I made a purchase for these great shoes. I think they would be the perfect pair to kick around in or wear with shorts--maybe even with the Free People top? 

The Dolce Vita block heel sandals are an absolute MUST! Dolce Vita is killing it with their shoe selection this season, and I'm constantly tempted to order every pair available in every color! These will go with everything. Perfect for the OTS striped dress or the tasseled, white romper! 

I'm definitely ready for a spring break getaway! This last weekend I went home and we had a family wedding shower for my cousin's fiancée, Taylor. We are so excited for her to officially be part of the fam in April! Right after, I drove to Oklahoma for a surprise baby shower for Emily! It was a quick trip there and back, but it was so worth it to see her surprise! She had no idea it was going to happen, which is so hard because she somehow figures everything out! 

Have a great week, and if this week is your spring break have fun and be safe! xx

White, Belled Romper

ROMPER this comes in two pieces. Top & bottom. : Similar dress style & HERE | Valentino Rockstud heels HERE : Similar HERE (under $70!)

Friday has finally come! The day we have all been waiting for! Today's post is one I've been anticipating for awhile, but putting off because this outfit is just too good it simply calls for warmer days! 

In fact, this romper is already set aside for me to pack up for the beach! This outfit is listed as a romper, but it really comes with two separate pieces. The top hangs off the shoulders with giant bell-sleeves (my fav). On each side it has two long pieces of fabric so you can tie however you like. You can make it a crop top or use the straps to make a solid top connecting the top and bottoms. The shorts also have shorter straps to make a bow in the front or back. I picked the front for the bow on the shorts, and the back for the bow from the top. You just have to play around to see what looks best on you. I am wearing a size 4. 

This week I decided to ditch my closet-sale Instagram and created a Poshmark. The Instagram was just too difficult to keep track of and track all the sales/sending/receiving payment. Poshmark has already made my life SO much easier. Shop my Poshmark closet HERE!! I've added a lot of stuff, but I'll be adding a ton more this weekend! I'm still trying to get used to it. AND I really need to downsize before moving! 

This week is also a great week because Fleet Foxes came out with a new single. I know what's going to be playing on repeat. I've also started One Tree Hill after many recommended! Friday Night Lights will definitely be hard to beat! 

Today is also my best friend, Laura's, birthday! Happy birthday, sister! I love you!

Have a fun weekend, friends! xx
