It’s Sweater Weather Y’all

elan-cold-shoulder-sweater-gray-sw1506There is something about fall and the weather changing that just makes us want to dress for the season. Maybe it’s the leaves on the ground or the chili mornings that makes us wake up and sip on our hot coffee. Either way, we will most likely be wearing a sweater!

This year it is all about the chunky, oversized sweaters. Stay trendy this season by trying different necklines with your sweaters. Some of our favorite necklines this year include cowl, turtleneck, keyhole, and crisscross. Another trend that is hot this season is the cold shoulder and off the shoulder look. Although it’s not ideal for the colder weather, it is an adorable look that you just can’t pass up!

The Chunky Sweaterunspecified

The bigger the better! We all have our favorite sweaters and a chunky sweater is mine! Something about the oversized fit that just makes wearing chunky cable knit sweaters that much more comfortable. These oversized sweaters are perfect for pairing with your favorite skinny jeans. Take comfy to an extreme and wear it with leggings this season! Stay trendy and try a little half tuck in the front of your skinny jeans for a chic look that shows off the waist definition.

The Cowl Neck Sweatercarys-fringe-sweater

Sometimes the big chunky sweaters aren’t for everyone! You can always try a lightweight sweater that features different necklines. One of my favorite necklines is the cowl neck. The cowl neck is loose and breathable which is the perfect mix of laid-back and trendy.

The Cold Shoulder Sweaterelan-cold-shoulder-life-sw1210-charcoal

Don’t let the cold stop you from being trendy this season! Cold shoulder tops are a hot item this year and they have now made it in a sweater. My favorite cold shoulder sweater this year is from Elan. It features a lightweight knit material that is flowy making the perfect fit for anyone! Cold shoulder sweaters are perfect for the transition from season to season. Add one to your closet TODAY!

Trend Alert: Frayed Jeans

Western Bootie
Fray is the New Fringe

The past few seasons the fringe trend has been a huge hit! Adding a twist to the fringe world, they have added fringe denim, which is known as released hem, raw hem, or even frayed jeans.  The frayed hem doesn’t stop at the jeans. We are seeing frayed shorts, skirts and tops too. The released hem trend isn’t just made on a skinny jean either, but also on a flared denim. One of our favorite brands, Flying Monkey, came out with a cropped skinny jean that features a raw hem and are a must have staple piece for this season!

Rules of the Frayed Jeans:

  1. The frayed hem should hit right at or above the ankle.
  2. Wear your raw hem jeans with pointy pumps, strappy sandals, ballet flats, casual sneakers, or ankle boots.
  3. Only wear one or two raw hem peices at a time, too much fraying could be an overkill.

Frayed Jeans

We paired our released hem Flying Monkey Jeans with an Elan Fringe Sweater giving this outfit the double fray look. Keeping up with all of the trends this season, we layered our sweater over a Criss-Cross Neck Tee. And topping off our look, we paired our raw hem jeans with our Volatile Haisley Western Ankle Bootie to show off that frayed hem.

4 Stylish Ways to Cover Up at the Beach

Finding the perfect beach cover up is just as important as finding the right swimsuit for many reasons: 1. Just because you rock a teeny bikini doesn’t mean you want all eyes on you all day long; 2. Sunscreen can only last so long and offer so much protection; 3. Spending the day at the beach doesn’t always mean you’re staying put. If you want to leave for lunch or walk to local shops, a cover-up is a necessity.

Beach cover-ups don’t have to mean an oversized caftan that does nothing for your figure. You can easily rock a button up shirt, kimono, or even a Piko dress over your swimsuit this summer.

Not only will a cover up look great at the beach, but you’ll also be ready for after-beach dinner in no time.

Check out a few of our favorite beach cover up alternatives:

cover up dresses

Replace your old beach cover up with a lightweight denim dress, like this one from Elan Clothing! Add a fun pair of sandals (i.e. the MIA Renata) for a playful and eye-catching look.

kimono cover up

Repurpose that cute kimono hanging in your closet to add an effortless layer over your swim suit this summer. This fringed kimono from Hayden Clothing is the perfect option! Throw on a Natural Life Boho Bandeau to tame your beachy waves.

swimsuit cover ups

Covering up with a long vest is a must for two reasons: 1. You can add denim cutoffs and easily go from poolside to after-party in seconds; 2. A pretty vest, like the Verona from Jack by BB Dakota, will look just as good with your skinny jeans as it does over your bikini.

cover up dress

A simple tank dress as a swim cover up is a no-brainer. The Amuse Society Dani dress is lightweight enough to wear in the hot summer heat, and can easily be thrown in your beach bag when you’re ready to jump in!

Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

“A Mother is she who can take the place of all others but whose place no one else can take”


With Mother’s Day approaching, it’s time to think about what to get the woman who has been there for you since day one.  Forget about flowers since they will only last a week, at most.  Get mom something that she will be able to cherish much longer.

Here are a few Mother’s Day gift ideas that we love:

Love Stitch Fringed Shawl Sweater: love stitch clothing

This is the perfect sweater for a mom who loves a cute layered look. This sweater can easily be styled with a basic cami and simple necklace or worn over a denim shirt for a fashionable look. These fringe sweaters also look cute when worn with either jeans or leggings.  The best part is that it’s crafted with a lightweight fabric and easily transitions from season to season. You can find a wide selection of colors here on our website.

Piko Topspiko tops

Piko tops are undoubtedly one of those most comfortable brand of tops ever made.  They come in so many different styles and colors, so they are super versatile and can be dressed up or down.  Don’t be discouraged about the oversized fit of these tops.  They can be styled in a variety of ways so they are flattering on just about everyone!  Mom definitely needs a few of these in her closet!

Elan Cold Shoulder Tops:

These are the perfect tops for a mom who is a fashionista!  Cold shoulder tops look great when styled with a pair of skinny jeans and wedges for a more dressy look. She can also pair either of these cute shirts with shorts and a flat sandal for more casual occasions.

Alex and Ani Bracelets:

alex and ani mother's day braceletsIf clothes aren’t necessarily your mom’s thing, jewelry is a great alternative.  Alex and Ani offers a great selection of Mother’s Day bracelets. Choose from the Mom Color Infusion Swarovski Set, the Unbreakable Bond set or a Mom Charm Bangle.  With such sweet meanings, any mom would love to get one of these on her special day.  As an added bonus, there’s no need to worry about what size to buy because these bracelets are one size fits all!

And while we’re sure that your mom would love any of these Mother’s Day gift ideas, we’re equally as sure that she also wants to spend some quality time with you! Presents are wonderful… but presents and dinner are the way to go.
