Some days I'm like "why can't I just wear my Star Wars pajamas to work."

Those days are usually Mondays.

And unfortunately I don't think my Darth Vader-patterned fleece lounge pants would be appropriate for an office setting.

So what do I do when I have those when I simply "cannot" and my laziness is at peak Taurus laziness? I reach for my tried-and-true closet staples. 

This is the kind of outfit that people will see me wearing and be like "Wow there's Emilee in those flannel shirts again..."

My outfits usually start with one piece, and then I build around it. When I'm having one of those lazy days, I just grab what I know best. 
You know,

  • Flannel Shirt
  • Big Necklace
  • Jeans 
  • Ankle Boots
  • Watch

I really love watches. I have a few but this one from Anne Klein is my favorite. I think if you're feeling "BLEH" about an outfit you should throw a watch on and see how you instantly feel much better because, to be honest, I think watches look expensive and and class up any outfit. 

If you know me at all you know how many button-up shirts I own. 

It's a lot. I own a lot of them.

It's a lot. I own a lot of them.

Something I love doing is buttoning them all the way up to the top and then throwin' on a big ol' necklace. It makes a casual flannel look a little more work appropriate and you don't need a sweater or jacket over it.

Also, and you'll probably see me blabbing about this a lot, but I hate layering. Which is why I don't particularly like winter. Or fall. Or spring. The fewer the layers, the happier I am don't ask me why I JUST AM OK?????

Finally I just throw on one of the 50000 pairs of ankle boots I own. Gross exaggeration, but there are a lot. 

I need to clean my boots............ eh it's winter.

.....AND VOILA! Instant lazy day outfit.

Feb. 9 - Internet? Where are you?

I am currently typing this at a crowded Starbucks listening to Ella Fitzgerald and Justin Timberlake simultaneously via the booming speakers and my personal headphones. Not an ideal mashup, but at least I can appreciate both songs.

Why am I in this bizzare, caffine-and-people-filled situation? Temporary internet connection issues at my home. Not the worst thing that can happen to a person. Definitely a ridiculous first-world problem, but nonetheless an inconvenient one. Anyway, without further adieu...

WELCOME TO MY STYLE JOURNAL!

This year I vowed to be less lazy and more productive. Not an easy feat for me. But an idea that has always been in the back of my mind was to start a Style Blog/Journal, etc. I'm not one for New Years Resolutions but I figured what better time to try something new than uh... February? I hope this journal gives you insight into my closet and into my mind. But beware the latter is a crazy place. Actually, my closet is too dang I get lost in there sometimes. 

I recently bought these American Eagle Tomgirl jeans and I must say I am in love???? 
Really comfy. Y'all gotta try them.

***A WARNING*** I wear A LOT OF JEANS! This is a direct consequence of being employed at American Eagle. Just... wanted to give everyone a heads-up. 

The AE Tomgirl jeans in action! Also. Yes. I did have cold ankles today.

I recently chopped off my hair. It was about 7 feet long. A gross exaggeration but it was pretty extreme. I'm still trying to figure out "life with a BOB" but I really do love it.

SO... There ya have it! My first official Style Journal post. I'm not sure how frequently I will post at this point. Just bear with me for a while :)

Well, I'm off to find the illustrious WORLD WIDE WEB! Wish me luck on my quests for interwebs. Here's my "IT KINDA STINKS TO HAVE NO INTERNET" face:

Until next time,
