Today I’m interviewing my good friend Emily! She is the sweetest, and I think you’re going to love what she has to say. 🙂
What would you say your style is?
I wear lots of varieties of clothing but when I look in my closet the prominent styles are florals, colorful patterns, lace, and pearls. So if I summed up my style it would be “classy boho with a hint of preppy”.
What are 5 summer wardrobe staples that you can’t live without?
1) Floral Romper. Gifted. My friend bought it from Italy! It’s very vibrant and fun.
2)Aeropostale Dark Wash Midi Shorts. You can dress them up or down!
3) Kiss and Cry Palazzo Pants. Mine are Navy and White with a bohemian pattern. They’re super comfy and I wear them all the time!
4) Forever 21 White Lace Tank. The best piece I’ve ever bought. Hands down.
5) Target Sterling Silver Pearl Earrings. I never take them out! They make a simple outfit classy!
If you had to dress only in clothes from one time period, when would you choose and why?
Without a doubt the 1920’s. From the sparkly dresses to the long strings of pearls to the lace, this era was when feminism really took off. Glitz and glam embodied this time period. The era was just bubbly and fun!
What are your go-to pair of shoes?
My go to shoes would have to be my Bass Women’s Sharon Sandals in White.
Do you believe name brands should be the focal point of your style?
No, certainly not. The only time I pay for name brands are if I truly love a piece. I buy for how much I like a piece of clothing verses being in a name brand clique. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not bashing name brands, they’re just not my usual purchases. Instead, I love shopping in a variety places. My usual go-tos are Ross, Marshall’s, and Forever 21. I’ve even found a couple pieces in Walmart. And of course, the queen of all my clothing purchases… Target. I think that variety is always best which is why I don’t limit my style to certain brands. You don’t want to restrict yourself and miss out on clothing pieces that could become favorites!
What clothing items are you wearing in this outfit?
- Thong Sandals from Target
- My little white dress is from Ross and unfortunately Ross does not have a website where you can search for specific items but here is the link to a similar white dress!
- Wide Brim Floppy Hat from Walmart
What does this outfit say uniquely about you?
This outfit portrays my style in that it looks put together but it is comfortable. I usually dress for comfort above all so this outfit really captures me. It is also a very summery and beachy look which is my all time favorite. I’m definitely a beach bum!
What advice do you have for other girls who are searching for their own style?
I try out new styles all the time and I feel like that is a perfectly acceptable way to find where you fit in the style world. Recently I found where I fit but that doesn’t mean I don’t try new things. My advice would be if you don’t love what you wear, keep on trying new things. And above all I think the style you choose should do three important things for you: make you confident, make you happy, and make you comfortable.
