style evolution

hey my friends!

back to the daily grind…but that’s not necessarily a bad thing ;)

I am counting down the hours, minutes, seconds until I have no more school.  Okay, maybe that’s a lie, but I am seriously SO CLOSE from doing just that.  Why is it that my school gets out the 23rd of December!?  If I’m not mistaken, I believe that is the day before Christmas eve – obv the person who made the schedule was really a little ignorant about the holidays…

Anyways, besides my ranting, today was an interesting day.  I chose my electives for next year.  I am finding it very hard to believe that we are already thinking about next year, but you gotta do whatcha gotta do.  How is it that I’m going to be a junior already!  For my electives I chose art 3 (of course!), spanish 4, and marketing…but I think I might take creative writing instead.  There are just too many choices!  I think I might have to have a little chit chat with my counselor before all decisions are made :)

So here is my look for today…

A&F sweater
tiered tank

This was definitely a pull-your-hair-out-“WHAT SHOULD I WEAR????” kind of morning.  Let’s be honest – we all have ‘em.  I must have changed at least ten times.


I want to address a question babyvanilla from Vanilla Swirl had for me -

Q: Have you had a phase where your style was 'emo/gothic/skater/whatever'? I ask this because your style looks urbain/glamourous, and I was wondering if your taste in fashion has always been the same. :)

Naturally, I have gone through many “style” phases.  Yes, there was a skater/punk/preteen phase where I wanted to be Avril Lavigne, where my wardrobe included every color pair of chucks, blue jeans, and any Pacsun Paul Frank t-shirt I could get my hands on.  As I get older, though, my style evolves and I never know what look might pop into my head that will inspire me.  Some of the things I have worn before have been a little gutsy and people always say “I couldn’t pull that off”, but the truth is I think anyone can pull anything off if worn with confidence.  All in all, I try not to be afraid to wear something and usually that’s how my sense of style develops and then I get more creative.  Because, when you aren’t fearful of the tools, aka clothing, then you can build anything you imagine, resulting in amazing outfits.

That’s all for now :)



  1. can you be my stylist?!? because your outfits are AWESOME girl!

  2. Oh lala, Emily is an artist! You should post some of your work :) As a fellow advocate of the arts, I much like your choice of art 3 as an elective! sweater makes me want to die (in a good way, I promise)

    It looks so comfy and cute.

  3. I'm loving your tiered tank, Emily!

  4. I agree... you have to love the tools and use them to your advantage. And you know how to use those tools really well Emily.

  5. I love the outfit! I am always afraid that I won't be able to 'pull off' a certain look. Maybe next time I'm drooling over a window display I will be brave enough to go for it ;)

    Glad to hear you're back to normal posting.. I gotta say your updates are awesome!

  6. That tierd top is amazing! And I totally agree... its not the clothes that make the outfit, its the spirit they're worn in.

    Your subject choices sound great :) such big decisions to make, but like you said, you can always change them later.

    Enjoy your day my love! Another day less of school ;)

  7. love love the outfit :) and on man i have what should i wear mornings all too often. and all too often i end up in leggings and a sweatshirt, ah college. one of these days i am going to get my style in gear.
    those sound like great electives :)
    hope you have a wonderful tuesday!!

  8. Emily? Skater punk?! No way! I can't see it, you're so feminine and classy.
    I went through it too, it was no bueno!

  9. Ummm...your sweater? It needs to be in my closet!! :)

    Isn't it funny how we always end up tossing on a bulky sweater or cardigan on those "what-to-wear mornings?" Of course, this typically occurs AFTER we've tried on ten outfits!! :)

  10. ah, time goes by far too fast. I swear, high school is all a big blur to me now .. I just set my schedule for my junior year of college -- ack! I want to stop growing up! haha... all the more reason to embrace and savor each day, right? :)

  11. i LOVE that sweater <3
    you are so fabulous. LOVE YOU

  12. love the tank top! our last day of school is officially the 23rd too...luckily my professors are nice and let us go a few days early =)

  13. fantastic look girl! so cute and feminine! Good luck on your last few days of school!

  14. You are too cute!
