Gift for Men: Jord’s New Conway Watch

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAHi everyone! I’m excited to be doing another collaboration with Jord watches! Before I get into this post, I wanted to let you know that I’m doing a $100 online gift code contest for a Jord watch (and you’ll get a $25 off code just for entering!)- get the rules at the end of this post!

Jord just released a new series of watches called the Conway! They have metal accents and different wood colors to chose from. In my opinion these make the perfect gift for the men in your life because these watches are unique, suitable for work or casual outings, and are nice quality! I got the Zebrawood and Dark Sandalwood Conway watch for my brother as a graduation gift and I’m excited to give it to him! It was hard to choose a watch because there are so many good options and colors!

Wow where to begin this post. 1) Sorry for being so MIA this whole last month and a half. It feels like I haven’t had a second to myself to just get online and blog. Now that I’m working in NYC I have super long hours and am just also trying to experience the city with new friends and coworkers. 2) I mentioned new exciting blog projects that I’m really excited about but that are taking more time than I expected. They are coming soon I promise!IMG_0964.jpg

These last few months have been a dream. I’m living the life I’ve always wanted- being in NYC and then traveling on the weekend to whatever city I pretty much want. It’s amazing to take a step back and just feel grateful for it all- I’m truly so lucky. I’ve realized more and more that school is a time to work your butt off so that you can enjoy life later (aka if you’re in school, work hard now so you can play later). New York City is so incredibly beautiful and the perfect place for blog pics. I took these with my friend Natasha (see her guest post here) back in November but am just now getting around to posting them. Since it’s been so cold lately these pics are still applicable. Lol I encountered my first snow storm last week and it was somewhat intimidating with the wind and slush but nonetheless was a fun experience of trying to walk and not die. Cant wait to go back to NYC this week!

Happy fall everybody! The other day I was invited to a cocktail making class in midtown Atlanta at Grain Bar so my friend Natasha & I dressed up and went! In this post you’ll see me style this outfit with two jackets- the black one for chilly weather and the green one for cold weather. This outfit was mainly neutral so it went perfectly with both jackets! I love whenever I have the chance to pull out my lace leggings so for this outfit I grabbed my burgundy dress and layered a gray sweater over it- layering like this is one of my secrets for when I don’t want to wear pants but don’t have that many skirts. Lol Also, whenever I wear glasses, I’ve been rocking these ones from Karoo– I’m a brand ambassador for them and you can find their eyewear at Ponce City Market! If you want to see some of the treats we enjoyed at the cocktail class, see them at the end of this post!

Hi Everyone! What a great opportunity it is to finally be a part of Emsies! I’m Natasha and Emily and I go way back, to the t-shirt wearing college days, and I have since been harassing her to make me a part of her blog post! Now that we are both working women, I had the chance to visit her up in New York in early November. If you know anything about Emily, is that she absolutely loves New York. So you know that you will have 100% of a good time with Emily showing you around. She knows all the hip spots, great restaurants, and the best views of the city.  Not to mention, all the fashion you must keep up with (of course with the hopes you might make a sweet landing on her blog). Well my dream finally came true (I guess my outfit was finally up to par)! I would always have described my fashion as very classic. I have never been a fan of tight clothing, and prefer to wear clothing that has more fabric and that flows well. I would also consider myself a very savvy shopper, majority of my clothing is under $20. Most of my inspiration comes from Bazaar magazine, and I would say my style icon has to be Victoria Beckham. She can make anything look effortlessly chic.

Emily Travels: Chicago

Last month I did a stretch of not going home for 3 weeks- I flew out Monday for work, stayed in NYC that weekend, and then flew to Chicago the following weekend to meet up with my parents there! Everyday I am thankful for being able to live a lifestyle like this- it is truly amazing. I find that a lot of the people I’m surrounded by have been traveling for so long that they’ve lost some of the appreciation for it so no matter how overly excited I am to be somewhere, I don’t tone down the enthusiasm because that’s something I don’t want to lose. When my parents asked me if I wanted to join them in Chicago I pretty quickly said yes because when I think of Chicago I think of a massive skyline, walks by the beautiful river, and delicious food (gimme all the deep dish please). We had a great trip and we took a ton of photos.

Chicago was surprisingly humid when we went (middle of October) but was still really windy- I made the mistake of wearing a dress but brought leggings to put on part way through the day thank god. I went for a very comfy outfit but one that was still street chic. My favorite piece for layering clothing is a cropped sweater! It goes over dresses perfectly without making your outfit look chunky (I also have this sweater in black and wear both constantly). Also if you can’t tell by basically all of my photos on Instagram (linked here), I’ve been obsessed with chokers. I love that these are making a comeback from the 90’s- it makes all of outfits feel cooler and edgier!img_0251 Continue reading “Emily Travels: Chicago”

Even though it doesn’t always feel like it in Georgia, Fall time is officially here!! This is my favorite season and since I’ve been going between NYC and Georgia, I’ve had a lot of fun layering together pieces to fit the cooling weather! I’m excited to share with you all my favorite trend of the season! But before I do that- I wanted to introduce my friend Joseph, who writes the blog: The Consulting Lifestyle! He creates fun content, is really nice, and is always super well dressed! I met Joseph at work and I feel like he’s the only one who understands my difficulty of balancing a consulting job, being gone from home 4 out of 7 days a week, and maintaining a blog. I’m so glad we got to do this collab together and shoot with Kelley Raye who is a truly amazing photographer- she made us feel really comfortable and we had so much fun with her! (See her work here.) Head to Joseph’s post to see his favorite fall trend for guys: burgundy pants and boots. (Also, I’ve never collab-ed with a guy before so I told Kelley we need to make this as little like engagement photos as possible! LOL)
