Bikbok top, skirt and belt - Zara heels – Ray Ban sunglasses – Urban Outfitters bralet – Michael Kors handbag
I loved Parc Guell so much that we shot a couple of looks here. The creativity and amazing colors of the buildings here was completely unique to any other place I have ever travelled to. I cannot recommend Barcelona enough, so if you are lucky enough to have a Euro-trip lined up for next summer, stop here you wont regret it! I decided in contrast to the colorful backdrop to go with a very simple texture filled look. I love the 90′s throwback of the fishnet top, to tone the outfit down a little I tucked the top into a high waisted demin skirt and marked my waist with this cowboy/Texas looking buckle belt. For sightseeing during the day I had a pair of New Balance sneakers ready to go and they worked just as well as these pointy Zara heels.
Bikbok top – Urban Outfitters Bralet – Langford Market pants – Ray Ban sunglasses – Michael Kors handbag – Zara shoes
Happy Saturday everyone! I hope your weekend has been great so far! I kicked off the weekend right with a long fresh run around Lady Bird Lake, for those of you that know your way around Austin, so beautiful! We shot this look in Barcelona at the Parc Guell, I love the fresh colors and patterns that grace the buildings, hopefully you can see some of it in the backdrops of these photos. I decided to go with an all nude attire, I really love this sequined see through top from Bikbok paired with the flared nude pants from Langford Market, simple yet chic!
I still have a ton of photos to post from our trip, so stay tuned for more updates! XX.
Chanel Handbag and sunglasses – Lindex tulle skirt – Forever 21 top – Nelly heels
When my friend Chau and I went to Arendal we scored quite a few deals, this beautiful tulle skirt being one of them. A Norwegian store called Lindex were doing a promotional that offered the third item for free, so I got this skirt for no extra charge! When I got it they did not have my size, in fact they only had about 2 sizes left L and XL. And so I got it anyways and had my grandmother help me tailor it and now it fits like a glove! A good tip for sale/bargain hunting is looking for quality pieces (that might not be in your size) but that can easily be tailored to fit you and our body perfectly! As for the rest of the look, I did a high-low combination with the Chanel classic flap and the sunglasses and paired them with a Forever 21 top (I think it might have been 15$!) and a pair of Nelly shoes on sale for about 20$. I usually spend most of my money on handbags, because just like in this outfit, you can wear a super inexpensive outfit and pair it with a nice purse and it elevates the entire ensemble.
A simple all black ensemble for a regular school filled Wednesday. A lot of people tend to think that a monochrome outfit gets too boring, but I love the all black/all white combos, as you can probably tell from my past outfits! Especially when it involves different textures or patterns, how cute is this Langford Market skirt all black midi skirt? I often think because of my height there are certain looks I can’t poll off, midi-skirts definitely being one of them. But somehow the line of transparency on this Langford Market skirt helps break it up and creates an illusion of longer legs (good tip for any short girls out there, wear clothing with elements of transparency!) If you need a good example of a shorty completely rocking the midi look (or any look for that matter) check out Miroslava Duma’s look here or here. Have a great Thursday y’all!
For those of you who follow me on Instagram, you might have seen this photo and wondered what was inside the bag. Well.. *drumroll* I finally purchased the Chanel classic flap bag (!!). It’s even weird to write it, I have wanted this bag for as long as I can remember! It is such a subtle statement, and a truly iconic bag! When I have gotten some more wear on it I’ll try and do a review for all of you that are considering buying it yourself! If you haven’t already checked out my Chanel pricelist and info, check it out here.
Now that I am back in Austin, I visited the Langford Market store and picked up some of my fall favorites (Texas fall, that is). I love this lace bomber jacket, especially in combination with this printed red and blue skirt! I usually go for more basic looks, but these two pieces just screamed my name! Here I paired them with a more neutral and classic top (perfect in combo with a suit, or a skirt for more professional settings) Hope you are having a great Monday so far!
BikBok top and demin skirt – Michael Kors handbag – RayBan sunglasses – Urban Outfitters bralet
Hi there Lovelies! I just finished up my first ever yoga class and it feels amazing! My friend Michelle led the class and did an amazing job! I tend to stick with high intensity type workouts and did not really expect to break a sweat during yoga, but boy was I wrong! By the end of the class I was dripping in sweat, what a great way to kick off my Sunday. Here are some photos we took wandering the leaf-tunnels of Gaudi’s Parc Guell, hope you like them. More looks are being posted today, so stay tuned! XX. Emilie
Dress Lindex, Chanel Sunglasses and 3.1 Phillip Lim handbag
I love to visit markets when I travel, especially food market. So naturally La Boqueria was on our list when we were in Barcelona. The place is filled with fresh fruits, smooties, salads and delicious macarons. Definately a place worth visiting if you ever find yourself in Barcelona.
Langford Market skirt, Bik Bok top, 3.1 Phillip Lim handbag, Zara shoes and Chanel sunglasses
One of our first days in Barcelona we left the city to visit Barcelona’s oldest park, Parc Del Labyrinth. The beautiful old maze proved the perfect backdrop for this look. After touring the gardens, gazebos and labyrinth we were both mesmerized by the surroundings and decided to play around and shoot some more looks. For those of you who follow me on Instagram, you have already seen a little preview of the shoots we did there.
I want to apologize for my absence here on the blog, I took the liberty to take a little time off after working through the summer. Good news is that I have plenty of looks lined up to show you from both Barcelona and Norway. Now that I am back in Texas I have plans to shoot some fun looks around my favorite places on campus, so watch out for those too!
During my absence on the blog, I moved back to Austin and got a new apartment (!!) I am super excited to show you some photos of how it all turned out. For those of you that know my I am not big on crafts, but this summer a DIY bug bit me, and I have done tons of fun, creative and affordable apartment DIY’s that I want to share here on the blog.
I hope all of you had a great summer and start of your semester/job/internship. I’ll be posting more updates soon.
