Hi friends! Welcome to my blog, I’m Maxie Elise. I was born and raised in Missouri and am now living in Southern California with my wonderful fiancé and two fur babies, Coco (meow) and Gigi (ruff ruff).
After many years of saying I wished I had started a blog, I decided I should stop wishing and finally get started. I’ve loved fashion and makeup for as long as I can remember. Whether I was making my mom watch me try on every item at Limited Too (this is not an exaggeration) or hoarding Lip Smackers so I could report on the best flavors, I like to think I was prepping myself for a blogging future from a young age.
I went to college at the University of Missouri and got my Masters in Accounting so I play in Excel spreadsheets by day, but wanted a creative outlet. By combining my desire for something creative and my love of fashion and makeup, Maxie Elle was born.
While my blog mainly covers fashion, I also weave in pieces of my everyday life. I’d describe my style as fun, feminine, and approachable. I love mixing affordable pieces with a few expensive statement items that can be worn repeatedly. I’m petite, like five feet, zero inches petite, so I hope to show you that clothes can be styled and look great on any body type.
A few of my favorite things are Jesus, working out (sometimes), champagne, chips & salsa, reality tv (specifically Bravo!), hiking, reading, and traveling.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you’ll find something here that inspires you and am so thankful for your support.
