Girl Crush of the Week: Ellyse Coombes

I meannnnn.... 
When I first came across the blog Running Late, I was immediately impressed with the blog's creator, Ellyse Coombes, style. She mixes preppy pieces with glam numbers and adds an edge effortlessly. Ellyse has never met a color, shape or sequined number she doesn't like. And given our penchant for sequins too, it was a match made in heaven!

Please join us in getting to know our Girl Crush of the Week, the fabulous Miss Ellyse Coombes!
Burberry goddess Emma Watson.
  • Style icons? I really love Emma Watson and Blake Lively’s style. They are both so glamorous and they dress age-appropriate. Also, I love Blair’s style from Atlantic-Pacific, but who doesn’t?!
  • Design philosophy? I like anything feminine and glamorous. I’m a total girly girl. I love sequins, sparkles, studs, etc. I also like a classic tailored look but with an edge.
I have zero use for these but all the desire in the world!
  • Favorite stores? BCBGMAXAZRIA would have to be my store/brand. I have worked for them for the past 4 years and I am in love. I have never found a brand that fits me as well as they do. My second love would have to be Zara. I love all of their blazers and they make the most adorable dresses! I also can’t forget to name JCrew!
See what I mean about preppy + glam + edge?
  • Dream place to live? Right now, I’m not sure where I want to live. I’m from Nebraska and I always said I wanted to move, but I just moved to LA for the summer and now I miss Nebraska. So I’m a little confused at the moment haha.
  • The one product you're obsessed with right now? Moroccan Oil. I can’t live without it!
Recognize this image from Pinterest? I know I do.
  • Biggest indulgence? Clothes in general. I spend waaaay too much money on clothing. I need to start saving!
  • Girl crush? Carrie Underwood and Katy Perry. They couldn’t be more opposite but I love them both!
Killer silver accessories.
  • Favorite song? I think my favorite song changes daily, but I have a secret obsession with Kelly Clarkson. I love her music. She’s my guilty pleasure!
  • Prized possession? My dog! Does that count?
  • Current hangout? Since I’m new to LA, I’m currently trying to find a new hangout, but back home I like to go wherever my friends are :) 
Ellyse and her friends.
  • Motto? “It’s better to be overdressed than underdressed.”
  • Best place on earth? Where my friends and family are!
  • Favorite drink? A frozen margarita or an iced tea!
Love a good chambray shirt + white jean combo!
