If you don't follow @ShopElysian on Instagram already, you should! Last week I just so happened to be with my sist'er;s family in Bentonville when they posted this top on Instagram - I was able to drive by and grab the last one in my size! They had a couple of smalls left though if you are interested.

I've been getting e-mails lately asking about make-up & skin care so I figured I'd answer some of those questions now... While I was in college, I occasionally got cystic acne and I didn't do a great job with the whole 'do not pick' thing. Long story short, over the past 4 years I have tried everything to shrink my pores/get rid of the deeper scars, but nothing has worked. Not Retinol, not anything at Sephora, or any of the expensive at-home peels. It's been very discouraging but I"ve decided to quit wasting my money. Now, what has helped me is Proactive - I can't believe I am saying that, but I started Proactive Extra Strength in September and its done wonders for my skin (John will attest to this!). Anyway, I've added my update make-up & skin care routine here if you'd like to take a look.

  11. love love love this look! those shoes are adorbs, the snakeprint sleeves are amazing and the doubled up necklaces are too cute!

    i might have to give proactive extra strength a try. i had horrible acne as well and actually had to go on accutane which has helped so so much but sometimes i still get stuff and i get so paranoid hahaa!
