It’s pretty typical that I meet someone with my same first name. It’s super common, not surprising, yada yada yada.
But I always valued my middle name…Mae…so highly, since it was my grandmother’s name and I am the only one in my large family that got it (hmm wonder why, probs cause I’m the best lol). My gran was an OG and she seriously influences every decision I make and even though she is no longer with us, I hear her voice in my head constantly!
So when I first learned about Ellie Mae Studios I just knew that this was going to be something special given the name connection and my ability to make anything about myself and who I am and holy moly I was not wrong. Her label launched in 2015 and it’s already made such a splash among the fashion community. In addition to this her story is pretty cool and I highly urge you to check out the About tab on her site here. It really gives you insight in to her inspirations and creativity and completely makes sense as to why she’s such a bad ass designer dreaming up the most stylish and functional pieces.
Which brings me to this jacket. THIS JACKET. When I saw this jacket I felt like one of those cartoons where your jaw drops to the floor.
IT IS EVERYTHING.
And you know what else: it goes with everything. It’s kind of crazy at first I was like hmm will this be too “loud” to wear on a day to day basis but nope it’s not! I wear it from walking my dog in workout pants and sneakers to cocktail events I attend for the blog. And for me versatility is key and this jacket hits all the notes and checks all my boxes.
So I’m sharing this friendly PSA that you need to know about Ellie Mae Studios and check out her site (shop Autumn/Winter here) and keep watching because big things are coming.
Any girl who’s name includes Mae is destined for greatness and I can’t wait to see what’s next.
