Hey everyone! Sorry I have not posted in awhile! Please have patience with me!!

So I don’t know about you but I’m so happy Fall is finally here!! I get to bust out my all black outfits and my more, lets just say boyish ensembles! Black is one of my favorite colors it’s very mysterious and sexy without being to much or to loud.  As we approach Fall/Winter you will see more of the use of black in my outfits! With this particular outfit, black and leather goes so well together. I think giving it pop of color with the red just makes this outfit even better! My inspiration for this outfit was to feel comfortable but still be stylish. What do you think? Did I pull that off? Let me know below! I want to hear from you!

Also don’t forget to read about an exciting offer below!!!

White & Leather #KimK

20140911_124435

Hey you guys! I wanted to take this time out to let everyone know that I have some really cool opportunities coming up for me soon yay!! That means more post and more outfits to share with you guys! I cant do any of this without all of your love and support! So Thank you so much for continuing to help me spread the word about “Emily’s World”.  Let your friends know, keep sharing, posting and let me know what you think of my outfits in the comment section below! I want to hear from you! I will continue to work hard and give you the best of me.

For this outfit I was really inspired by some of Kim Kardashians looks I seen on Pinterest. I must say that I do love how she dresses, despite of what people may think of her the girl can dress! I love how she can just throw on something simple like jeans and a tank and still look sexy and chic! I decided to be a little risky and wear all white with a creme colored leather. I love it! What do you guys think?? Did I pull the Kim K sexy chic look or not? Let me know in the comment section below!

Till next time ya!!

Mixing & Matching Transitional Pieces

So, I really wanted to show you all how to mix and match this grunge to chic look I have here. A lot of times we over think our wardrobe and get overwhelmed looking for the perfect outfit when we actually have some key pieces that are very versatile! One being black leather pants, black leather pants are a closet must have! I cant stress that enough, so make sure you have a pair! There are endless ways to dress them! Second is the military jacket. Military jackets are also very versatile, for example, you can wear one over a cute boho style dress, maxi, jeans, etc. I mean the list goes on!

As you can see in the picture above pairing these leather pants with something like a plaid shirt and military jacket gives it a edgy look but stilI keeps it wearable to different places.

GrungeMango long sleeve shirt / Dirty Laundry slip on boots / Michael Kors brass bracelet

In this picture you see how easily this plaid shirt can also be worn with some boyfriend jeans and boots. It gives it a grunge look. I paired this outfit with some gold and a yellow purse because I think the yellow just gives it a pop.
Transitional
In this picture I switched it up a little bit. Again using the leather pants, I paired them with a striped crop top or an all black hoodie, depending on how your feeling you might want to have a more sexy look and go with the crop top or not and go with the hoodie. Just depends on what you like. I love the the yellow purse with this to. It also give this outfit a splash of color!
Till Next time!

Sunday Funday #2

20140826_193641

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

20140826_200847

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

20140802_170146

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

20140802_172142

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!

Confidence..

20140802_173231

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!
