The perfect Snakeskin Collection from

Ann Taylor is here!

I find styling snakeskin or prints in general can be tricky because I often stick to wearing just neutrals and solid prints. After discovering the Ann Taylor snakeskin collection I fell in love because it is a neutral print that can be styled easily. The grey and white tones in the print are perfect to be worn with white denim and a pump or a high knee boot. The turtleneck shirt is paired with high waist white denim and a grey pump to create a casual chic look. Then I wore the dress with high knee boots to create an edgier look rather than dressed up with heels.

Happy, Healthy Hair with Pantene!
dfghjk.jpg

Let’s talk about hair health

I have always struggled with finding a shampoo that would help strengthen my hair from the bleach in my hair which has caused my hair to feel dry and dull at times, but I’m so happy with the noticeable differences in my hair since using Pantene repair shampoo.

Not only has the shampoo given my hair more life - I’ve recently started using Pantene Pro-V Intense Rescue Shots… this was a serious game changer for my hair, it deeply absorbs the blend of Pro-Vitamin B5 that strengthens the targeted damaged areas of your hair! It’s the best at home professional treatment for an easy hair mask, and it rinses out quickly so you don't have to stress about having weighed-down hair. Your will see noticeable differences in the health of your hair!

How-to-use the new Pantene Pro-V Intense Rescue Shots :

• Use weekly instead of your normal conditioner

• While in-shower, apply generously to fully saturate hair, root-to-tip

Consider where your hair sees the most damage and be sure to target that area

• The product was formulated to prevent overdosing so unlike other hair treatments, no need to hold back! It is single use!

• Leave in for 30 seconds

• Rinse for 30 seconds (don’t over-rinse!)

I’ve been using these intense rescue shots once a week to help repair any damage and my hair feels so much healthier already! Yay for healthy, happy hair!

If you have colour-treated hair and you often style your hair with heat, that can mean a loss of nutrients for your hair creating rough, dull hair - something we don’t want!

Pantene is leveraging Brazil’s secret to a great hair day and they are bringing it to the U.S. in the form of Intense Rescue Shots. It is most ideal for colour-treated and heat-styled hair but also for all hair types, this new product aims to rescue your damaged hair and ensure that you have more great hair days in between professional salon treatments. We all love to get pampered and get our hair done so let’s make sure we keep our hair looking and feeling healthy too!

Portugal, you were a dream!
IMG_2735.JPEG

Oh Portugal, you did not disappoint.

This was my first time in Lisbon, Portugal, and it was an amazing experience all around!

We checked in at the most beautiful hotel called ‘Memmo Alfama’ and we could see all of Lisbon’s most beautiful colours from the terrace lounge!

We had an ocean view from our hotel room and it was a dream waking up to that view every morning.

The hotel was very authentic and stayed true to Lisbon - while creating a great mix of feeling just at home with its modern interior.

Breakfast in bed.

I could get used to that.

I went with my friend Michelle and we toured around the city in the beautiful sun during the day and had the most amazing pasta and wine for dinner! The food was a 10/10 and I was so impressed by the hospitality at our hotel and everywhere else we went too! I feel like this trip was relaxing as well as work friendly - capturing content so effortlessly because of how beautiful the landscapes were and the sun-kissed weather.

IMG_2737.JPEG

The endless streets of authentic buildings and the colourful buildings - there was so much beautiful content to be made here!

I can’t wait to get back to Portugal when it’s warmer and get to the beaches! I have heard endless positive things about them and I can finally say that I had such an amazing experience here on - that it makes me that much more excited to come back!

I definitely recommend you to stay at this hotel ‘Memmo Alfama

3 Easy Ways to Style a Chunky Knit Sweater

Don’t fear your biggest knit sweater, they need some love too :D - and I’m going share 3 ways you can style them so you feel chic, comfortable and stylish when you leave the house!

Fall is the greatest season for this type of style because you can get all warm and cozy on the top then wear something a little lighter on the bottom!

How to style these 3 looks from head to toe:

  1. Find your oversized knit and a cute mini skirt and simply tuck in the sweater just in the front of the skirt. Throw on a pair of killer heels or booties and away you go!

  2. If you have some really high - waisted straight leg pants, they are are a go - to statement piece paired with a chunky knit! Add some peep toe heels and a dainty purse!

  3. I’m currently loving the long flowy skirt look right now, and it’s perfectly paired with a chunky knit! Pair this look with some booties to give it a more casual street style!

Why You Shouldn't Be Afraid of Full Sleeve Shirts

Are you looking for a new staple piece to add to your wardrobe to make an outfit a little more exciting? I have two words for you…

Statement sleeves.

In other words, puffy shoulder sleeves have made a comeback. Don’t fear the word “puff” sleeve, it really flatters your figure. They compliment any outfit and creates a lovely looking look that you can pull off.

What should you pair with this “puff” sleeve top?

  • Straight leg pants

  • Jeans

  • Trousers

    Pencil skirt

  • Skirt

  • High waisted shorts

You want to accentuate your figure with the puff shirt on the top and make sure the rest of your outfit is minimal and form fitting. Let the puff do the work.

You will notice that this sleeve is very trendy this fall season. There’s no doubt that I have fallen for this look, it’s definitely one of my favourite staple pieces for whether I’m going out for dinner, shopping, or attending an event. It’s a very versatile statement piece in my wardrobe currently.

You can see how I’ve previously styled this look:

My Complete List Of Fall Coats
MOODBOARD .jpg

Hey loves!

I’ve been getting a lot of requests about my jackets! I love wearing longer coats for fall, as well as mixing in some shorter staples. I think they really complete a look, especially when it starts to get colder. First, I’ll start with my longer coats (around shin length) which I love to use for layering when it gets really cold out. Then go into my shorter jackets which I wear when it’s a little colder.

These are all the staple jackets I have in my closet. I keep them all to neutral colors so they match everything and you can rewear them.

Hope you love! I'‘ll go into more detail on each jacket below.


My Fall Jackets

Screen Shot 2018-10-29 at 2.06.54 PM.png

Long Tan Coat

$200

 

I truly love this jacket. It is a staple in my wardrobe and is probably one of my most used coats. It’s the perfect shade of beige and the perfect length/size to layer underneath. This would be my #1 staple if you need a coat that you can dress up or down.

Screen Shot 2018-10-29 at 2.07.12 PM.png

Long Brown Coat

$365

 

This is a little bit of a darker and thicker version of the jacket above. I love the nice rich brown color that has a red undertone. It’s perfect for all of the fall colors in the city. I also like that it adds a little pop of color. This one is also a little more tailored, but still good for wearing sweaters underneath.

Screen Shot 2018-10-29 at 2.07.33 PM.png

Medium Brown Coat

$220

 

See a theme here? …I love my neutrals.

This jacket is thinner than both of the jackets above. It’s more of a trench coat like fabric and is better for when it’s early fall!

Teddy Coat

$125

 

You’ve see me wear this in my IG stories and it’s SO cozy. I love love how cozy and soft this is. It’s truly like a teddy bear is hugging you and I love it.

This coat is perfect for layering as well when it gets a bit colder out.

Screen Shot 2018-10-29 at 2.07.48 PM.png

Sherpa Jacket

$125

 

Levi’s has some really great shorter coats that I love to layer under the longer coats above. This one is a sherpa jacket (similar to the teddy coat) and is so cute and soft. Plus it’s the perfect color!

Screen Shot 2018-10-29 at 2.07.20 PM.png

Classic Jean Jacket

$72

 

If you don’t have a jean jacket yet, you gotta get on the trend! They’re perfect for layering and a staple in my wardrobe.

Screen Shot 2018-10-29 at 2.07.03 PM.png

Cotton Moto Jacket

$324

 

I recently got this jacket from Frye and it’s more of a linen/canvas fabric which makes this jacket so unique. The details are so great and it matches really well with all of the other coats above.

I think it’s definitely a splurge, but it’s a coat that will be good for the spring as well when you are transitioning from the cold to warmer weather.

Fall Flower Arrangements
fall flower arrangements.jpg

Hi lovely ladies!! Today I want to share a post about flower arrangements. I did this technique awhile back and loved how it turned out, so I thought it would be a fun idea to share with you all for the upcoming holiday season (am I too early?!).

It is such an easy table arrangement for when family and friends are coming over, but sure to impress. Plus I love how you can really show your personal style so easily through these arrangements. Like by picking your favorite fall candy, or fruit. Such a simple way to customize and stay true to yourself.

Below I will list the items you will need and exact instructions for you to follow along!

items you need.jpg

Items You Need:

  1. Flowers

  2. 2 bags cranberries

  3. 1 bag pumpkin seeds

  4. 1 bag limes

  5. 4 oranges

  6. Scissors

  7. Baggies

  8. Vases & smaller vases

Steps:

step 1.jpg

Place smaller vases inside of the larger vases OR place a baggie filled with water into smaller vases (zipped closed)

  • This is creating the area of water where the flower stems will go and how they will stay in the vase.

step 2.jpg

Start adding in your filler (i.e. cranberries, pumpkin seeds, oranges, limes)

  1. You can get really creative here and pick what you love the best and what color scheme will go with the flowers you picked! I chose to do more fall centric tones that complimented the flowers

  2. For seeds/berries: you can just pour these around your small glass container or your plastic baggie

    • These will last longer than the fruit

  3. For fruits/citrus: slice your fruit into ½ inch thick pieces and start arranging them putting one on top of the other. If the space between the small vase and the large vase is fairly large (like for oranges) I like to put the ends more toward the bottom to act as a filler

  4. Remember this part doesn’t need to be perfect!! It will look great in the end, don’t worry :)

setp 3.jpg

Now you can start to arrange your flowers.

  1. I like to pick complementary colors to go together like the green and the pink. This makes both of the colors pop!

  2. I also like to have variances in height between all of the different flowers. Some taller and some shorter, so that there is always something to look at!

  3. If there is a section of the smaller vase that is still showing, you can add more fruit to the top of the arrangement, or you can try to use the leaves to cover it!

My 10 Fall Wardrobe Essentials
 
my 10 fall wardrobe essentials.jpg
 
 

 

Hi guys! I am really excited to start up my blog again. I took a little break, but am now going to be posting regularly on here with fun fashion, beauty, & lifestyle content. Who’s excited?!?!

I started this blog because I sincerely LOVE clothes and have a passion for personal style and help you all with your style. I think having your own style and staying true to that can give a woman such a sense of confidence.

My first post I am realllly excited about, I’m sharing MUST HAVE items for fall. These are the items I NEED to have in my closet in order to create my looks for my Instagram! So let just jump right into each pieces and why I think it’s a staple in every girl’s fall closet.

**Stay tuned for my biggest styling tip at the end.


1 // Light Wash Jeans

jeans.jpg

Styling tip:

My tip for your

staple pair of jeans

is to have them

be a lighter wash,

this way they look

a little more vintage

First is a good pair of high waisted lighter wash jeans. I think I wear these jeans on every “off” day of shooting because once you break them in they shape to fit your body perfectly. I love how you can dress this with just a white tee, but also dress it up a little with a blazer and my Dior shoes!







2 // High Waisted Trouser Pant

Every girl needs a good pair of trouser pants. In the picture I have a linen pair that I love and wear all the time, but these can be any fabric that works for you! They make your legs look so long and make you look so chic. Make sure you find a pair that you feel super comfortable in, and don’t settle for anything less.

Style tip: If you find a pair that fits just right, but are the wrong length, get them hemmed! I usually hem them so I can wear my favorite heels underneath for extra leg length


3 // Knit Sweater

I meaaaan this one is self explanatory for fall. A chuncky fall knit sweater to keep you warm is a must. And it needs to be soft. We only accept clothes that are soft over on Lovely Luciano.

Artboard 7.jpg

Style Tip: If you want to wear this, but still look like you have a waist, tuck the end of your sweater into your bra, so just a little bit of skin shows. That’s what I did here, and it works like a charm!


4 // Long Sleeve Turtle Neck

I love having a nice thinner turtleneck to layering under your clothes for fall. Especially in NYC the weather can be unpredictable, so it’s nice to have a cute top that is also functional under jacket and sweaters.


5 // White Blouse

A staple in my wardrobe all year round is a white blouse. I love the details of the large buttons and how it goes with everything.

Artboard 3.jpg

6 // Blazer

Duh!! Don’t think I’m ever going to get over a good blazer. I love to have a neutral colored one for fall that isn’t too oversized, but also isn’t fitted. Pair this with your jeans and turtleneck for a chic casual NYC street style look. It’s so simple but so chic.


7 // Long Coat

Again, this should be a neutral color, so it can be paired with all of your other essentials above! If you want a little bit of extra warmth a longer coat is perfect! It will dress up any outfit to make you look put together.


8 // Kitten Heel

I wear these shoes SO often because they ridiculously comfortable and fashionable. They can elevate any look. These don’t need to be Dior though (obviously), there are so many great shoes that would work for this pieces. Just look for a neutral color sling back shoe with a lower heel and you’re good to go!


9 // Loafers

I wear these everywhere and think they have formed to my feet. They are soo so comfortable and versatile that I’m thinking of getting a pair in white too. Easy to slip on and off and always make you look put together (even if you aren’t). Linking less expensive options below too :)

As you can see, I love my neutrals. But that is my biggest tip!! I buy nicer quality staples in neutral colors (think: white, beige, black, browns) and then more trendy items at high street shops like Zara, Forever 21, etc. My staples can travel from season to season and still go with everything because they are neutral and timeless. That’s the key to always looking put together and elevated, secret’s out!

Xx

Emily
