Glasses 

Happy tuesday! Im so excited to finally share this collab with you guys! I recently ordered some sunglasses & regular glasses from ilymix and I was so pumped when I saw they had finally delivered!!!! How cute are these glasses I got?! LOVE. I was shocked by how great the quality was because they were only $25!! YOU too should be pumped because with the code: elise20 YOU can get 20% of  your purchase!!! Y’all seriously, this is a deal because a lot of the glasses are already 25 & under. I currently have a shopping cart full of a bunch of sunglasses, but thats only because I’m obsessed with them. You can get 20% off your purchase of ANYTHING with that code!! You’re welcome and happy shopping.

NYC + ATX

SHOP THE OUTFIT

My two favorite cities! New York City and Austin, Texas. I love this city! Austin is so beautiful and so much fun. These photos were taken at the Hope Outdoor Gallery, a series of walls that are covered in graffiti and art. Perfect photo op. You can bring spray paint and paint whatever you want, wherever you want. And it has the BEST view!

My sweatshirt is from J.Crew and sold out pretty quick the first time it was in stores so now that its back, get one!! Its so comfy and actually lightweight. I like that it is lightweight so I can layer with a collared shirt. These shorts are also from J.Crew and are the CUTEST. They’re also under $50!! I would go a size down in these because after wearing them all day they became pretty loose.

HAPPY SHOPPING

XO, E!!

Botanical Gardens + Free People

DRESS 

I’m so excited about this post. I got this two piece set a couple of weeks ago from Free People and I have been dying to wear it. This last Friday I took a little road trip to Austin, TX. First place we went were these beautiful Botanical Gardens in the Zilker Park area. Seriously, so pretty! If you ever travel to ATX I highly suggest it! Just maybe not in the summertime when its 100 degrees outside 🙂  Anyway, this dress is under $150, which I think is a steal considering its from Free People. Super light-weight and very dramatic, yet simple at the same time. Lastly, my extensions are Amber Fillerup Clarks Barefoot Blonde Hair 🙂

P.S. thank you Dylan & Cedrick for the stunning photos!

 

St. Thomas + Views

Spent the evening at the Marriott with this insane view! We also went clear bottom kayaking. It was so cool, the kayaks had clear bottoms and LED lights so you could see the life underneath you. Lots or sting rays and sea turtles!!

Hi!! I just got back to TX from St.Thomas yesterday and I’m having major withdrawls already. I already miss my family so much, but I’m also glad to be back with my family here in Texas. We did so much this past week. On our boat trip we went to the beautiful British Virgin Islands. I love it there, I can’t ever go to St.Thomas without going to the BVI’s at least once during the trip. Highlight of the trip had to be clear bottom kayaking. If you’re going to the USVI soon make sure you put that on your list of things to do!

Sapphire Beach + My Girls

No fashion post today. I’m dedicating today’s post to these girls! My cousins Marlee & Emerson, the most adventurous girls I know! Marlee & Emmi live on a boat in St.Thomas with my aunt and uncle. Right now they’re docked at Sapphire Beach, but are planning to sail all the way from the Virgin Islands back to Texas (visiting all the islands in between)! Today they requested a photo shoot, so I packed up my camera and took them down to the beach. Once we got there we took probably one picture until my camera died 🙂 so enjoy these iPhone photos of my favorite girls 

Beauty + Faves

Today I’m going to be sharing some of my favorite cosmetics that I use on my face daily during the summer time! To shop the products just click on the product name in the description under the photos. For a discount on the lemon drop & lipstick below (or the whole mikasabeauty site) use code ELISEBATTENBNSS25.  First thing I use is this Mario Badescu facial spray and spray it on my face and the lemon drop blender! Then I apply the Jentry Kelley tinted primer which is light coverage and great for summer time. I love this foundation because it blends super well and isn’t orangey at all. This PIXI by petra powder I apply to my whole face after the foundation has sit for a little bit. I use a super light one because I hate looking orange.

I have been using this highlight forever. It’s like a highlight/bronzer/blush all in one. It’s seriously awesome. To keep my lips moisturized I first use the rose lollipop lip balm and then top it off with this mikasa beauty lip stick that I LOVE. It stays on all day long, I didn’t need to apply it once after putting it on. This one is the color Havana.

Lastly is my FAVORITE mascara ever. You can get this at any drug store. I’ve used this mascara for years and I love it so much and will never use another one. 

Hope you enjoyed!!
