Hey Divas it’s been a while. I was traveling for work and unfortunately I caught a nasty bug that put me under the weather. I’m still recovering but had to hope back on to give you all some inspiration! First off happy Monday and let’s aim to make this week count!
Just FYI you will be seeing me style these gorgeous black wide leg pants! Because I am very petite and I love to create the illusion of long legs, hip, and a booty and these pants do the trick! I picked up these beauties from TJ Maxx for only $16… now that’s a super bargain. I paired these pants with my crochet Eva Mendes tank from New York & Company. It is true I’m one of those people that gets cold very easily, so I typically carry a sweater of som sort. This longline floral kimono was the perfect match for this outfit. I picked this beauty up from Charming Charlie for $8.
This outfit is truly down me on a budget. I topped this look of with a black wide brim sun hat from H&M and my cream faux suede caged heels from JustFab. This look can be taken from day to night, or work to play. Take your pick.
How do you style wide leg pants? Xo happy fashion divas.
I’m every women it’s all in you!!!! I am giving you true girl power on today’s blog! I am truly honored to have the opportunity to collaborate with 4 beautiful women. We all came together as the “Fab 5 Fashionistas” to style different pieces from the Gabrielle Union collection exclusively at New York & Company. We truly are representing Gab Unions theme: #ALLTOGETHERNOW. Each of us have very unique backgrounds stories of how and why we became fashion bloggers. This couldn’t be more fitting to share I and how each of styled a piece form this line. So let’s get right into it.
My outfit selection is very special as today is my 32nd Birthday! Whoot Whoot so happy and thankful to God for allowing me to see another year. I chose the puckering pink jumpsuit. As I’m such a girly girl and can’t stay away from pink. This jumpsuit looks like a 2 piece as it gives a high waisted pant look with the functional buttons down the middle. Wide leg culottes are trending right now and are a must have for this spring and summer! I decided to keep this cool and simple as I paired it with one of my favorite Sam Edleman espadrilles from DSW. All of the vibrant colors make this outfit just pop even more. Staying along with this easy look I chose my blue straw side satchel and my white sunnies from Ross. Bam outfit made easy!

Sometimes we don’t realize where we find our inspiration from and other times we just follow the trends. Each year as I get older I count my blessings and realize how much I am becoming more like my mother. Not just by the way I look, but how I pair my outfits.
I am keeping it simple on today’s blog with this eyelet white maxi dress. I bought this last season from New York & Company for my honeymoon. I didn’t have the chance to wear it as it was extremely hot in St. Lucia. This maxi dress is delicately made as it has eyelet laces, crochet and comes with a lining! Awesomely made. I decided to pair this dress with my blue and white nautical stripe wedges from Justfab. Let’s not forget I love a good sun Hat. Keeping along with the fresh nautical theme this blue and white strip hat is the perfect match! Don’t like hats? throw on a cute pair of sunnies. Basket weave purses are trending right now and I just so happen to have one in blue from TJmaxx.
As I was looking through some family photos, I came across this picture of my mom in this white maxi dress. I couldn’t help but laugh because here I am in the same type of dress. Thanks mom!

Bold colors and prints are a must have this spring and summer. Polka dot in particular is hot! Ranging from black, blue, reds the polka dot color options are endless. Polka dot print never goes in or out of style, it’s something that should always be a staple piece in your wardrobe. Prints like this can be dressed up or down. Don’t be afraid to wear sneakers, or t-shirts with statement prints. Try it you just may like it. Le’t get into this outfit.
Just FYI this entire outfit is from New York and Company.. and all items are currently on sale! I am totally loving this Viva La Cuba t shirt from the Eva Mendes collection. I usually would rock this with a pair of jeans or skinny leg trousers. But I had to go bold and pair it with the polka dot skirt.. Well Eva did it best! The circle skirt has pockets with a small side v slit. I decided to make this outfit pop by pairing my orange pumps with this outfit. bringing out the orange from the top to the bottom is the perfect match! Another color that i tried was hot pink. Play around with colors and prints to find your perfect match.
Don’t let spring slip away with out jazzing it up in bold prints and colors!

As the temperature here in Georgia starts to heat up, my clothes and color choices do too. I have been so eager to break out into bright colors. One of my favorite work looks are slim leg pants and a printed blouse. This style is not foreign to Emanee’s Closet as I love a good skinny pant and blouse however the paper-bag waist pant is so hot and trending right now. These are the tapered high waisted version of the wide leg pants that you have seen on the blog.
I was instantly drawn to the hot pink pants.. well I have only been searching for like 4 years, for the perfect hot pink pant! And… of course I found them at New York and Company. Pairing this cute trousers with a vibrant printed top only adds a touch personality to this look. This blouse has cuffed sleeves and can be worn tucked in our out with slacks like I have or even jeans. I love pieces that you can inter-change to dress them up or down!
Let’s not forget this cute kitten heel bow tie pump. Of course form JustFab! These lovelies come in black and blush pink. They are a faux suede material and are very comfortable. These shoes are a perfect match for the office or even a weekend look with jeans.
How are your welcoming spring into your closet?

What physical trait most defines you? That’s an odd question! I ask this because, being skinny, my long hair and my big ears is what has always defined me. Till this day people can’t believe that my hair is real. To every skinny joke under the sun to being deemed Dumbo for my ears.
However My hair, skinny frame and big ears are actually my best traits! Society wants you to believe that having big boobs, thick hips and a booty will make you feel more like a women. So not true! God gave me exactly what I needed. Lord only knows what women I would be if I had all the other things I just listed. My hair can go form curly to straight.. my small frame allows me to even shop in the kids section (winning) and my ears.. I chalk that up Ms. Tyra banks and calling them FIERCE!
This outfit has me feeling like I am dancing in the sunshine back in the 70’s. From the off the shoulder white blouse, boyfriend painted semi cuffed rips jeans. I added these knotted yellow espadrille wedges to decorate my feet and a simple yellow and pink tulip scarf to ask a headband.
I love simple outfits that look so well put together. How do you embrace your most hated physical traits? Have you grown to love them?

Doesn’t spring make you think of bright colors, hats and the races? Well I have actually never been to the races.. which is crazy because I grew up in California and the Del Mar Race track is right there.. maybe I can venture to the races soon with my hubster! that would be fun.
This outfit is giving me Audrey Hepburn “My Fair Lady” when she wore the big hat at the races 🙂 I love Audrey and her classic style. Of course New York and Company got me right on this look. I am in love with these paper bag waist tapered pants. Bright daffodil yellow is such a great color as it’s bold but sexy I paired these pants with a statement black and white blouse. The cute details on this blouse are amazing form it’s bell pleated sleeves to the bow tie back closure. I decided to wear my studded black strapped heels with these just to elevate the look.. And why not add a matching stripe hat to top off the look.
How would you wear this look?

Friday Vibes.. You have no idea how happy I am that it’s Friday! Ant this all stripe and pop of silver outfit is setting my fashion sense free. Matching sets have been in trend for the past 2 years. I think it’s funny that people find this trend to be knew.. it’s not it’s just been revamped from the 70’s and 80’s.
This entire outfit is from… can you guess??? NY & Company.. I can’t help but to shop there they always get me right! This outfit is no long online but can be found in stores. I love the ankle pants that NY & Company has to offer. As the cut and fit are just right.. They also have a good amount of stretch. The top is made out of a chiffon material with a cotton underlay! perfect for those spring and summer days!
I paired this look with my silver JustFab oxfords.. just to give this look some added flare.
What are your Friday plans?

On this rainy day I thought it would be great to post this spring transitional inspired outfit. I’m over here struggling as we have had some beautiful spring days within the past few days.. and now it’s back to cold and raining. yuck! Come through Spring come through.
This is such a simple outfit for those on the go days. I took my simple all white zip Express blouse, topped it with a simple soft pink sweater kimono from Dress up. I had to jazz up this outfit with my distressed paint splattered jeans from NY & CO. I absolutely love these jeans, very fun and playful for spring and summer. I decided to stick with the soft pink for my shoes as these JustFab open toed lace up’s did the trick.

It’s finally Friday Jr.! Have you ever looked on Pintrest and you see these glamorous bloggers in their cute skinny pants, simple blouse and heels? have you ever tried a look that and couldn’t master it? Well here is a simple way to do just that!
First you need to figure out what color you are in the mood for.. and if you do not have a wide range of color selections your closet, no worries pull out your best pair of jeans! In this case I chose my black skinny stretch jeans from NY & Company. The next step is to pick out a blouse or even a sweater, whichever is more appropriate for your climate. Since Georgia is currently transitioning to spring early I opted for my favorite animal print blouse. I love to be warm and since I work in an office I wanted to drape this look with royalty shall I say.. I fell like a million buck in this green velvet blazer that hails from Dillard’s! Now you already know what are the odds of finding green velvet? Very odd! But JustFab came through on these lovely velvet green pumps. Depending on your style you can wear heels, flats or boots depending on what best fits your personality for that day. It’s as simple as that. outfits made easy!
