Sunday Funday #2


So this post is especially important to me because when I decided to move from Blogger to WordPress, it was a fresh new start for me. I wanted to have my own site where I could post about my own looks and style.  My prior work was more of me posting about fashion in general.  But this was going to be me in the center of the front page and I was a little scared about that.  I thought to myself what if people don’t like me or what if I’m in over my head? I decided to move on with my plans despite of my fears and just go for it! You could say my first few post were not the best. I wasn’t being myself, I was holding back and I was to worried about what others would think. In turn my post didn’t really shine the way it should have. I kept it safe and thats a no no if you really want to stand out among the rest!

  The post was called Sunday Funday at the time, I  wore this amazing tribal print maxi skirt I got from Urban Outfitters. I really wanted to wear it with with a crop top but was to scared, so I wore a tank top instead.

So today in honor of that post called “Sunday Funday” I wanted to repost that outfit with what I really wanted to wear!!

Hope you like till next time!

Stay Fierce! #Chic


Hello everyone! So sorry I havent posted in a while! Lets just say life gets in the way sometimes when your trying to pursue any passion! But I’m back and have  some amazing outfits on the way.

 Stay Fierce! This top is exactly how I’m feeling right now! I’m fiercely pursuing my dreams like a lion!

This is my first time wearing my LC jean jacket. I really love mixing and matching colors like this. I honestly had to play around with this outfit in the mirror,  at first glance I didn’t think this jean jacket would go well with this outfit. To my surprise it did!

 Tip: I find my best outfits just mixing and matching things together in the mirror even things that might look tacky at first try this next time you are styling an outfit!

Till next time!

Crop top & Cut Offs


It’s a crop top and cut off shorts type a day! Feeling comfortable  has been my thing lately. I have on my infamous shorts that I love so much and wear with just about everything! Crop tops pair well with high waisted shorts or high waisted anything for that matter! I posted a link to a long sleeve striped crop top at the end of this post. Long sleeve crop tops are a great trend for the fall and excellent transitional piece. Now that we are heading into the fall transitional pieces are a must! So make sure to have you some!

Sorry for the short post! More coming soon promise!

My Trip To Ecuador #TBT

1512430_950362868326070_106551235352545252_nHey yall! I really wanted to show all of you some pics from my amazing trip to Ecuador! I went there awhile back with my sister and two other woman for a missions trip. It was an amazing adventure and so humbling. I will never forget this incredible place! The people here are so welcoming and friendly. Even with the little that they had they were so giving. I can go on and on about this place but I will try and keep it short! I first visited Quito Ecuador, Quito is the capital and is the “New York City” of Ecuador.  I stayed in Quito for two weeks and then two weeks in Latacunga Ecuador. Latacunga is the country side of Ecuador. I loved both places equally but I would have to say I am more of a country girl so Latacunga was more my type of place. The people here treat you like you’re literally family. They would give you the shirts off their backs if they had to. They have taught me to appreciate what I have.

I got to visit an active volcano called Cotopaxi which is in the heart of Latacunga. I ate some wonderful food, I wish I had now! :) And I was able to travel inside of a real cave! Below are pictures from this incredible journey I had. Hope you like! If you have visited Ecuador also I would love to hear from you in the comments below!

High Waisted Skirt & Denim


I love these type of flowy high waisted skirts! I was always scared to wear them though because of them being so short. They just feel like any gust of wind that comes by your hole skirt will fly up. I had this particular skirt for years and never wore it for that reason. But I decided to take my chances this time and finally wear it. I love the detail on this skirt thats why I fell in love with it! I hope I captured the detail well enough in my pictures!

I usually see many people wear these types of skirts with a tank top, so I wanted to try something different and in this case it was pretty easy pairing it with a denim top. Denim is awesome! It pairs well with everything, so when in doubt wear denim! This is such a easy effortless outfit that is very transitional. You can wear to go out with some friends, a date, or even church! So if you have a high waisted skirt laying around like I did and dont really know what to pair it with try a denim top! Hope you like! Till next time!

Be confident in who you are. Never stop dreaming. Stand up tall and know your worth! This is my inspiration today. CONFIDENCE!

Those who know me know I have come a long way and have been through so many things in my life. At a young age I started looking for acceptance from the world. I wanted so badly just to be loved and accepted by my peers. I had no self worth, I hated who I was and tried so hard to change myself everyday. I soon began hanging around the wrong people and at a young age began exploring the world around me.  For many many years I learned the hard way and became desolate and empty. That little girl who once dreamed and had hopes was gone…Until One day I began walking in truth and not what the world said about me! And from that day forth I gained my confidence back, I was able to live, dream, wonder, love and be loved!

 Today I stand up tall in confidence! I rise above all the pain in my life. I just want to be a hope and encouragement to anyone out there who has gone through things, things that broke you and caused you to lose  sight of who you are! Be strong! And never give up!

Emilys Closet Must Haves!!!

My Favs

Hi everyone! These are some of my closet must haves! I’m pretty sure everyone knows by now that I’m a little obsessed with fringe! (check out some of my fringe post here & here!) as you can see I love fringe! One of the things I love about fringe is it seems to never go out of style! Thats why when I saw this fringe leather at Top Shop by Kate Moss I had to have it!

Another item I’m always wearing this season is my high waisted denim shorts! I wear them all the time, they’re my go to shorts and a definite must have for your closet. They’re so many ways you can style shorts like these! ( check out how I styled mine here!).

And I cant go anywhere without my big hoops so I had to put those up there too! Another key piece this season and also closet must have is ankle boots. They go with just about everything, dresses, shorts jeans etc. So make sure you have some!

Last but not least is the slip dress! Now this metallic slip dress by Kate Moss is stunning! I’m in love! Slip dresses are a trend this Summer and super comfy, check out fellow blogger Sincerely Jules wearing her slip dress here!)

Hope you like! Till next time!

20140724_142523Hi everyone! I’m Back! I hope you guys love this outfit as much as I do! I had so much fun putting this one together! I had this blazer for awhile now but havent worn it because of the fit being to big on me. I bought it when I was a little on the heavier side.  Anyways, I found this really cool vintage belt I had gotten in an antique store here in downtown Jacksonville. To my luck it looked great with this blazer!  If you have a oversized blazer like mine I would definitely suggest trying it on with a big chunky belt! And since it is Summer time pairing your blazer with some denim shorts looks awesome! I love this outfit because its so versatile. you can wear it like I did with some destroyed denim, leather tights, or some slacks! Hope you like!

Love Yourself!

20140718_125353Today I wanted to go a different route then what i’m used to and talk to everyone about loving yourself and following your dreams! Im not going to go on a rant I promise! I just want to encourage everyone one today and keep it short and to the point. I recently have been going through a very difficult time in my life that made me second guess who I am. Because of this I’ve been pouring myself into my work and not giving up on what I know God has put in my life. I really believe that deep down inside as a woman we need to love ourselves, stop being so hard on ourselves and never except abuse of any kind! Let this be an encouragement to all of you readers. When you begin to love yourself you begin to see your worth and when you know your worth, cant nothing stop you! So be strong, don’t give up, live your dreams and most of all LOVE YOURSELF!! Have a great weekend Ya’ll!20140718_130206

Fringe & Denim

IMG_20140715_182042For this shoot I was looking for a top to go with these DIY shorts I made not to long ago. To see how I made these shorts check out my “DIY Denim Shorts” post! I just wanted to keep things simple and use the bare minimal when it came to my look. I gave my hair a little beachy look and threw on some boots. Oh and If I could I would probably wear hoops with every outfit! My son and I found this really cool remote area here in Jacksonville. The sun was going down it was perfect! It became our little adventure! We just had fun with this shoot, Hope you like!

Dont forget to check how I made these DIY shorts! here
