Spotlight Weekly Link-Up | Week 91: Pastels

May 27, 2015
Wearing: Shabby Apple tea time dress c/o | Old Navy Wedges | C.Wonder bag c/o | InPink Pave Link bracelet c/o

Happy Thursday, loves! The week is almost over ;) Today I'm styling a dress from the Shabby Apple Blue Bayou collection. I love how feminine a-line dresses make me look - especially for this post-partum body. I'm not going to lie, it's tough taking outfit photos just two weeks after having a baby, but I'm getting used to it. I just can't wait until I"m cleared to work out! As for my shoes, anything that involves neon sandals or ankle straps are my current obsession!

The lovely Jacqueline and I post our link-ups every Thursday! This week our theme is pastels! Or you can pick any fashion/beauty related post to link up! Come back weekly to visit us! (Click after the break to link-up!)

Guest Post: Bows & Depos

Hi guys! I'm Emily, and I blog over at Bows and Depos. I'm super excited to be guest-posting for Miss Elle today, and I just thought that I would introduce myself and tell you a little bit about me. As my blog name suggests, I am an attorney. I practice workers' compensation and have been doing so for about three and a half years now. Gosh, I'm getting old! My fiancé, Joey, and I moved to Savannah about a year and a half ago and started our own law firm. Before that, I worked at a large insurance defense firm in Atlanta (actually where Joey and I met). A few co-workers at my old job had encouraged me to start a "fashion blog" just showing the outfits that I wore to work on a daily basis. I actually knew very little about blogging before I started my blog, and I was not really a follower of any blogs before I started my own, so I had no idea what to do. I also couldn't fully commit to the time needed to successfully run a blog until we moved to Savannah. It's funny because now that I have time to blog, I really don't dress up as often because I work from home most of the time. It's quite a catch-22!
I really enjoy blogging, even if my outfits aren't necessarily the type of looks that I had in mind when I started my blog. Most of my blog outfits are more casual, but I try to throw in some work-appropriate looks every now and then! I've also made a ton of friends through blogging that I most likely would not have met otherwise. That's really the best part! Please fee free to stop by my blog and say hello!! Thanks again for having me Elle!!

Dressing Like A Stylish Mom and $50 Shopbop Giveaway

May 23, 2015
Happy Memorial Day weekend, ladies! Just wanted to say that I appreciate you hanging in there with me as I continue to learn how to be a better mom and wife! It's been a transition, but it's been  totally amazing! Today, I want to share some tips for dressing like a stylish mom! I've had to pull out some serious basics from my closet since mom status comes first these days ;) 

The recipe for a perfect mom outfit starts with some fabulous leggings! I prefer designer leggings (see here) because they're a staple that I reuse almost weekly! Next you need some comfortable, yet stylish shoes! I'm currently loving black flats with bows for a feminine touch (see options here) or the comfortable, stylish sandals that are pictured above. I typically style a casual tee paired with a flowy cardigan because it's easy for breastfeeding! TheVince cardigans above are two of my favorites (see options here) and I also love how the Topshop Cardigan above is paired with shorts for a trendy feel! 

Lastly, the diaper bag - a stylish diaper bag is super crucial. I adore this Tory Burch backpack but that's because I'm partial ;) however, this Petunia Picklebottom Tote is pretty fabulous too! Top your look off with a pair of Karen Walker Sunglasses and you've completed the Stylish Mom challenge!

Now for the extra fun part of this post:

Because you've been so amazing and patient with me the past month, Shopbop.com and I have partnered to give away one $50 e-gift card to Shopbop.com to a Living in Color reader! This giveaway runs from now until 6/3/15, and the winner will be contacted 24 hours later via email!

Guest Post: Eat Pray Wear Love

May 22, 2015
Hey darlings! Today, I'm so excited to be guest posting for the lovely Elle! Aren't you just so excited for her and her new little bundle of joy?! Wishing blessings upon blessings for their sweet family! 

Anywho, I'm Leah Behr and my blog is Eat Pray Wear Love. 

For those of you who are already following along, thank you! And for those of you who aren't...well hello there, it's nice to meet you! Eat Pray Wear Love is a fashion focused blog, with the occasional recipe and random musings. I gravitate toward classic and timeless styles, but I've been known to spice things up with a bold look from time to time, like today's!

Denim on denim tends to be one of my go-to outfits. Ripped jeans and a chambray top just works well for so many occasions! Whether paired with booties for running around or throwing on with some heels for a night on the town, it's a tried and true look that never fails. With Spring being in full swing though, it never hurts to brighten things up and today's look is all about that.


Incorporating more statement pieces like this yellow jacket, is the best way to transition your favorite Fall/Winter looks to Spring. Adding a fun multi-color bib and sorbet lip really adds a nice finishing touch.

Well, I'm outta here but it was so nice to meet you all! Please follow me along on Insta (@eatpraywearlove) so that we can stay in touch, and if you want a #BTS look be sure to follow along on Snapchat: leah_behr

Spotlight Weekly Link-Up | Week 90: Spring Whites

May 20, 2015
Wearing: Target lace maxi dress (this dress is only $29 and is a juniors dress, so be sure to size up!) | TAudrey'Autograph Name Plate Necklace' c/o

Hi loves! I'm so happy to finally be back to blogging- I've got a few more guest posts from some of my favorite bloggers this week, but after that, it's postpartum style! I've noticed that less is more when it comes to just having a baby. Something like this white maxi is perfect for nursing and it's cotton so it can be easily washed if something gets on it (with bleach of course). It's from the juniors section at Target, so I would definitely size up - in face I'm wearing a Large because I'm tall, and I also had a very big belly when wearing this ;) Can't wait to see your favorite whites!

Guest Post: The Fashionista's Diary | Dress Up Your Tee

May 19, 2015
TheFashionistasDiaryTheFashionistasDiary4TheFashionistasDiary6TheFashionistasDiary5TheFashionistasDiary2

Hi, everyone! It's Lauren Ashley from The Fashionista's Diary, which is a personal style and beauty blog based out of the 3-0-5, or Miami. I'm so excited to be guest posting for beautiful Elle today! Her and I have been friends for a while and it's great to be able to share some fashion tips on her gorgeous blog. Today I wanted to talk to you about dressing up, or glam-ifying {that isn't a word} a casual tee. There are so many days where I just want to throw on a tee and run out the door. First of all, Miami is SO hot. It's actually ridiculous. Second, I want to be comfortable when I'm in between meetings and events. There's nothing I love more than a beautiful dress and some platforms, but let's be serious here... comfort is key! One way I love to dress up a casual tee is by adding a pop of color in any way possible. With this outfit, I added these pink shoes that also come in a bunch of fun colors. I thought that this would be a quick and easy way to make the outfit a little more fashionable, without being completely uncomfortable. These heels are really great and don't hurt my feet, even after a long day of walking. I then added a longer necklace to the mix, but I've always worn casual tees with some statement necklaces, preferably from BaubleBar, and they do the job even better! I would suggest going with a less heavier necklace if you're going to be wearing this outfit all day. Also, always make sure to wear a nice pair of dark wash jeans when you're trying to dress up a tee. Wearing ripped denim, shorts or light wash jeans are great, but not if you're trying to dress up your tee! I went with my favorite, the Paige Denim slimming jean {although, this lighting here doesn't really look like they did much slimming...haha!}. Sorry for the crazy photos by the way, it was so windy outside! For a second I thought I lived in Chicago. Anyways, thanks so much for reading my post today on Elle's blog! She's an amazing person and I feel blessed to have met her through this blogging community! You can check out my blog here and follow me on Instagram here.

Bloggers Who Budget | Florals Under Fifty

May 17, 2015
Wearing: Lilly for Target dress (similar) | Lilly for Target wedges (similar) | Similar bag | Similar sunglasses | InPink 'Spotlight' bracelet c/o | InPink Pave Link bracelet c/o | Uppababy stroller



Hi loves! Well, I had the baby! She is a perfect angel and we've never been so in love with her. If you missed it, check out her nursery here! Anyway, today for this installment of Bloggers Who Budget, we're styling 'Florals Under Fifty' and I've had this dress for around a month and haven't been able to wear it due to a giant pregnant belly! I was super happy to have fit into it! I've linked to some other options that are similar above! This one was a little more affordable ($38) because of the Target collab, but the other ones aren't too badly priced! Have a fabulous week! xoxo.

Guest Post: Here & Now

May 15, 2015
Hello! My name is Jessica & I blog over at Here&Now. I started my blog shorter after moving to Nashville to pursue my PhD at Vanderbilt. The guys I worked with in the research lab didn't want to listen to me talk about clothes, so I created my own little community here on the internet. 3 years later, I have now transitioned to being a 7th grade science teacher, & I have a whole new set of wardrobe challenges. 

If you like building a versatile wardrobe, oogling at pugs, or checking out my adventures around Nashville, TN - come visit!
{ outfit 1 // 2 // 3 }

In my original "Closet Staples" post (almost 3 years ago!), one of the items that made the cut was a pair of quality leather sandals. Since that time I have fooled myself into believing that my cutesy Target sandals fit that description. But I was finding myself throwing the $15 pairs of sandals away at the end of the season (some didn't even last that long!). So this year I made the splurge, shelling out a little bit more for a pair of sandals that were made of actual leather AND super high quality. 

I got these Nisolo sandals just in time to pack them for our recent trip to San Francisco. I wore these on our sightseeing days - & after walking miles of straight up and down hills, I only love them even more!
Better yet, Nisolo is a brand co-founded by a friend from high school. I always knew that Patrick would go on to do great things, but I am constantly blown away by what they are doing at Nisolo! 

From their website:
"We are a team of makers, doers, and storytellers working together to facilitate a healthy connection between consumers and producers in the global marketplace."
This summer, I am going to be living in these sandals, and dreaming of the day I can add these other lovelies to my closet!
