A WEEK IN MY STYLE

We’re going to become super close for a hot minute because i’m going to show you what I actually wear in a normal week. Warning: I may look like a hot mess for a few pictures but I’ve learned to just embrace the potato-ness.

M O N D A Y

Mondays are usually a mixture of tons of different things. I’m almost always usually groggy from the past weekend and want to sleep in all day, but I unfortunately have class at 9:30 in the morning. After I force myself up by telling myself i’ll grab coffee after class, I throw on my fanciest pair of leggings and the comfiest sweater I can find in my closet and literally go right out the door. Usually, I keep this outfit on for the rest of the day because, honestly, I have no motivation on Mondays. Unless i’m going to coffee with friends or shooting for a blog post, this is the most “dressed up” I get.

This is my free day in the week because I have no work and also no school, so I use Tuesdays solely for getting work done. Since I want to make my blog was professional as possible, I sometimes use this day to get some pictures for future posts instead of having to opt for Iphone pictures (God bless my mom for being a photographer).

My outfit these days usually vary, either it’s me in sweats all day or me actually dressing up. Today, I was motivated purely because I knew I was writing this post and managed to slip on a casual ‘fit. By the way, i’ll have all my outfits linked below (or at least i’ll try to find everything!)

W E D N E S D A Y

Ahh, Wednesdays. I cannot wait for summer to come because of the fact Wednesdays are filled with classes. I can’t even imagine being a full-time college student because i’m being dramatic about taking only three classes (sorry to my full-time college readers, i’m just a lazy ass). My school schedule basically lasts from 9:30-4, so either I get dressed early in the morning or don’t get dressed at all. Surprise, surprise, I decided to look half decent today, and when I say half-decent I mean just doing my hair and makeup and opting for a cute athleisure look.

T H U R S D A Y

Now we’re getting to the fun stuff. I work Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, so therefore i’m kind of forced to not wear my usual sweatshirt and leggings. Thursdays are my long days at work, and we mostly don’t get that busy, so today I went more on the casual side.

F R I D A Y

I love Fridays because it’s almost the weekend and because work is always fun for some reason. We usually get shipments this day, so I get to open up new goodies, or we have appointments, which I always love because who wouldn’t love selling wedding dresses to potential brides? Because of my good mood on Fridays, I always dress the cutest this day.

S A T U R D A Y

Saturday is when I get down to business. Most times, I have to work on Saturdays, which are our busiest days, which means that comfort is my number one priority. Casual slip-ons and a light sweater is the usual look, but on some occasions I love to wear this blazer. Sometimes, when I’m asked, I have weddings on Saturdays, and boy do I have a lot this year. Basically, the whole month of May and June i’ll only be working like 1 or 2 Saturdays at my actual job. On wedding days, I’m not too extravagant but instead try to make myself seem as unnoticeable as can be (I should just start wearing camo to weddings).

S U N D A Y

Remember when I said Friday was my favorite day of the week? Yeah, I lied. Sundays are probably my all-time fav day of all time. For one, I get to sleep in, and who doesn’t like that? Second, I get to either rest, get work done, or hang out with friends, which I take for granted because I feel like I never have the time in my busy schedule to see all my friends. I’m definitely an over-thinker, too, so if I have work just sitting at my house, I can’t stop thinking about it until I get it done. Ironically, i’m also a procrastinator, so as you might see these two do not pair well. Moral of the story is that my outfit these days are whatever the heck I feel like doing. I’m actually pretty surprised that I didn’t look like a wreck today. A+ for Emily.

I know the title of this post was “A Week In My Style,” but y’all got an extra “Week In My Life” for FREE! You’re welcome.

LIFE UPDATE

Hello!

I’ve been doing this whole blog thing for around two and a half months and it’s fun and all, but I feel like I haven’t really shown my personality or my life or anything in between, so here we are today! I thought it’d be cool to kind of chat about what’s happening in this fun thing we call life and such. Be prepared for a chill post today filled with fun info and exciting facts (also prepare to be disappointed because I have no exciting facts).

So as you’re reading this I more than likely will have only 2 weeks left in school! That’s exciting and I’m so ready to be just a tad bit less stressed throughout the summer! If you are not aware, I’m currently a part-time student at a local community college and virtually am just trying to not get super far behind in my studies while also having multiple “jobs”. The reason for the quotations is because technically I’m only employed at one place, which is a bridal boutique that I freaking adore so much, but I also do wedding videography and, for obvious reasons, run a blog. I have just about 16 weddings this year, so that’s going to take up a pretty thick chunk of my time and thus I’m able to basically consider it a second job. I don’t consider my blog a job yet, though. But, in the future, I would love to have this as a fun side job along with my full-time position, which I hope is in the marketing field (lets cross our fingers and toes).

Currently, I’m in school for Business Administration, but I’m unsure if I want to keep going and get an associate’s degree or transfer to a bigger university and get my bachelor’s in Marketing. The positive part of staying at home as long as possible is that I pay less money in the long run and I can keep my current job. But, the downfall is that I wouldn’t even transfer for another 2 years and honestly I don’t think I can wait that long! haha. You guys should give me your feedback and lemme know if I should wait it out or transfer next spring to a University!

Now let’s get into the nitty gritty that stresses me out every waking second of the day; my future!!! yay!!! (too much sarcasm?) When talking about the future, I really want to go into marketing, like I said above, and hopefully get into the corporate retail division. Basically, I want to work in a big city and for a company I fully support and wear their products. I just feel like I’ll do a much more creative job and work to my fullest potential if it’s somewhat in the fashion field.

Now with the blog, I really want to keep going with this as much as possible and hopefully make this an actual job. I do this all in my free time and don’t get paid for anything, so in the future I hope I can gain a little bit of an income for doing something I love! I know it sounds super basic and whatnot, but I just have to embrace that I’m a basic human. I would also love to maybe start producing youtube videos that aren’t necessarily weddings. Don’t get me wrong, weddings are super fun to shoot and edit, but I have ten times more fun producing content that revolves around things I love and sharing my life with all my fellow humans! Who knows, those are just goals, but a girl can dream, right?!

On the bright side, I have a few awesome trips coming up! In about the middle of May, my family and I are traveling to Boca Raton, FL to shoot a wedding! We have one day just to ourselves, so hopefully I can walk around and shoot some fun content! I’m pretty busy in June, so I hopefully just want to travel to Indianapolis a few times just to explore like usual and eat bomb food. There’s just something about Indy that makes it not basically in my backyard. Then, in July, I’m so pumped because I get to visit my best friend in Maryland! She’s coming to the Fort at the end of June and then I’m hopping in her car and am going back to her humble home for a week. Maryland has basically become a home away from home to me so I’ll always have a place in my heart for the environment and people in that wonderful place! I know my parents and I were talking about hopefully sliding in a short trip to Toronto before I start school again in the fall, but I guess we’ll just wait and see!

So there’s a little update on my crazy and stressful life! But, I want to get to know all my readers, too! comment under this post one fun fact about yourself and we can have a little fun conversation down below! Also, if you have any other questions or things you wanna know about me I’m a completely open book and would love to answer anything! Have a great rest of your week, guys!

(also ignore any of the typos I might have in this post, I’m writing this at midnight and have so many other things to do that I didn’t have time to proofread this. Professionalism.)

WORK-FRIENDLY OUTFIT IDEAS

If someone asked me to do this blog post a year ago I would literally laugh at you because my work attire would usually consist of leggings, an old t-shirt with espresso stains on it, and a warn out pair of white converse high tops. I know, I know… I had a great fashion sense. I would try to wear cute-ish clothes, but then by the end of the day I would be wearing every ingredient available. But, here I am today writing this post because I’m finally at a job where I can finally dress like myself!

If any of you didn’t know, I currently work at a local bridal shop a few days a week and absolutely love it. I’ve been able to become a little more creative when it comes to my fashion sense and I’ve decided to share a little bit of my business-casual outfits with all of you!

Most of these pieces were bought years ago so I’ll try my best to find and tag whatever I can find! And also shoutout to Riley for being awesome and letting me bombard her closet and borrow some of my fav pieces of hers,  you rock.

I’ve decided to categorize the four outfits based on different styles, so therefore:

OUTFIT 1: The Preppy/Classic Girl

OUTFIT 2: The Sophisticated/ Glamorous Girl

OUTFIT 3: The Flirty/ Easygoing Girl

OUTFIT 4: The Dressy/ Edgy Girl
