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.

  8. You are SO right about leather leggings! I ordered my first pair last year based on your blog post. I love them so much I wish I had ordered a second pair. One thing I did think was important was getting a quality pair and to me there's nothing better than Michael Kors. Love this look!

  13. I have never heard of the Ita brush but looking forward to checking it out! And I agree, I had been living in a pair of faux leather pants two years ago, and decided it was time to stock up with two or three more pairs.

  19. Haha John's response is a typical male response to makeup. When I bought a YSL concealer my boyfriend was like "I could have bought 30 JBC burgers from Wendy's for the same price" Haha.
