Amped Up..

 PULLOVER: Under Armour | SHIRT: Under Armour | PANTS: Under Armour | GLOSS: Bobby Brown 
(fave fave gloss!) Since we've moved to Tulsa it's become a thing to go for walks in different areas not only for exercise but also to see new places & explore the city. John works pretty long hours so it's a nice way to spend some quality time together, also. I am sure it will come as no surprise to you that I prefer my fitness apparel to be brightly colored. I am currently loving the neon Under Armour selection at Nordstrom. With the array of color options & styles available, you can really amp up your workout gear & make it more fun. If you get a chance, stop by the site to see the Under Armour x Gisele Collaboration

Edgy + Girlie..

 TOP: Nasty Gal | FAUX LEATHER LEGGINGS: Topshop c/o (not available online yet) (also here & here) | BAG: Prada (Tory Burch version herehere) | HEELS: Christian Louboutin (similar styles here & here) | SUNGLASSES: Prada | EARRINGS: ILYcouture (on sale!) | WATCH: Michele | BRACELETS: ILYcouture, Mindy Mae's Market | RINGS: Kendra Scott c/o, BaubleBar | LIPS: 'Rebel'

I have 3 different styles of faux leather leggings/pants now because last fall I found myself wearing them ALL the time. They are dressier than jeans & black goes with so much that I constantly gravitate towards them when putting an outfit together. Nordstrom has a TON of faux leather leggings/pants right now & I recommend grabbing a pair now because last winter they sold out rather quickly! You can always dress them down with oversized sweaters or tunics & scarves, too. 

John had yesterday off we are stayed sooooo busy but had a lot of fun spending the day together. Speaking of, I have a sort of funny story... I have been on the hunt for the Ita brush by NARS for months (best contouring brush, ever!) & it has been sold out everywhere. Y'all know I have moved & traveled a lot and I constantly looked for it in so many cities. Anyway, I noticed it was in stock on Nordstrom's site last week so I placed an order & talked about how excited I was all weekend. Okay.. so yesterday the UPS guy drops off my package & I am like "oh John - look at it! Feel it - I can't wait to use it!" & his response was "Emily, we could've just gone to Lowe's and gotten one of these from the paint section." :/ I honestly kind of agree haha... But really, I immediately used the brush & was in shock at how awesome it is for applying bronzer/contouring powder - highly recommend it.

I ordered this leather, tan jacket during the NSale this summer (yet it is cheaper now!) & was so excited to finally have the right temp to wear it over the weekend. It is definitely a staple piece for my closet... not only will it be great over dresses & with skirts, but it works with a simple look like this as well. I've found that having a good white v-necks is essential lately..  I've been wearing this one at least 2-3x per week! I guess that is what happens with cardigan weather. :)

I hope you all had a great weekend. Thank you for reading..xo.

Hashtag Fall..

TOP: Topshop c/o (unavailable online) (similar here, here, & here) (more options below)| FUR VEST: Chicwish c/o (I think it will sell out quickly!) |  DENIM: Wit & Wisdom | BOOTS: Tory Burch (love these too!) | BAG: Valentino (love this & this, also!) | WATCH: Michael Kors | BRACELETS: David Yurman, Stella & Dot | RINGS: Kendra Scott, Stella & Dot, BaubleBar c/o | EARRINGS: BaubleBar c/o | NECKLACE: Love Always Couture c/o | LIPSTICK: YSL #26

The weather in Oklahoma is so nice.. & borderline 'cold'. Friday afternoon I wore this outfit for a few errands & I figured I could take the vest off of I got warm but I ended up needing it. It's be a little dreary out which makes it much cooler. Anyway, I had several people ask about the vest so I decided to do a random Sunday post to answer the questions & post a few more (not so great) photos! I ordered the 'long' in an extra small. I am almost 5'7  if that gives you an idea of how it fits me. Also, another question I have been getting is about my hair/hair extensions. I am not wearing any extensions in this photo. Usually when I add extensions it's usually just a weft or two, & I put them at the base of my head just to get length or add to my longest layer. :) 

Anyway, hope y'all are having a wonderful weekend & getting some cooler temps, too!

This was my first time actually visiting Central Park.. & I don't think I could've gone at a more wonderful time. Saturday evening it rained so Sunday morning it had really cooled off. The sun was shining bright & it was probably 60 degrees. I literally just sat on a bench to took it all in... and did a lot of people watching. :/ & Dog watching, lol. 

Today is John's day off from work so I am excited to be spending the entire day with him. Last night we went to a place called In the Raw to get sushi then we picked up some Ben & Jerry's ice cream on our way home... pretty much the best date night ever. I love being back in Oklahoma w/John & moving at a much slower pace. :)
