No Heart Breakers

Hello everyone!

I think these might be some of my favorite blog photos ever! I really love how this outfit looks with the light and dark denim pieces. I hope you love it just as much as I do!

I decided to wear black jeans with rips at the knees (…I know. Black, really? What a surprise). I threw on this black and white gingham shirt, and then some simple black boots to go with it. A plain black outfit can be very boring if you don’t accessorize it well. So, of course, that led me to my next addition… a denim jacket.

It’s no surprise now that I love embroidered denim jackets. When I saw this one at the store, I first walked away without it but ended up coming back a few minutes later to try it on. It’s very different from the other denim jackets I own. It’s a lighter wash, and it’s a bit oversized, but not quite as big as my Bad Suns one. It also has elastic by the waist. The main thing that drew me to this jacket though was the back. In black letters, it says “No Heart Breakers.” The words almost look like they were spray painted on there. They are actually made from a braided rope material (if you zoom in, you can see it). I just love how different this jacket is. It’s such a statement piece, which I’ve come to realize I really, really like acquiring different and unique pieces. This jacket has definitely become a new staple item in my wardrobe.

Alright, enough of the jacket, can we talk about these sunglasses now? I’ve had these for a few months but haven’t ever properly worn them until recently. They are gold, glittery cat eye sunglasses. They’re a bit out there, but super easy to style. I showed them once before in a blog post, so I’ll link it here if you’d like to get more details about them.

I hope all of you are having a fantastic weekend. Let me know what your favorite statement pieces are in the comments!

P.S. I feel like this outfit makes it obvious that I’m from California.

Lots of love!

Here’s what I’m wearing:

Hello everybody!

I’ve been meaning to document this outfit for awhile now. It’s so cute, but also one of my go-to outfits recently. I hope you like it too!

I’m wearing a plain white t-shirt and black jeans just so that I can have on a pretty basic look before accessorizing. I actually really like this top. It has a high neck, but is also fitted and short sleeved. It’s great quality, too. I’ll try to find the exact one I’m wearing and leave a link below.

This jacket definitely makes this look. I got it as a present for Christmas, and I’ve worn in so many times in the last few months! To start off with, the color of it is amazing. It’s a grayish-purple color. It’s not incredibly difficult to style, but the color and texture makes it so unique, which is why I tend to wear it like this. This jacket is made out of a lovely velvet material and has ruching on the insides and outsides of the sleeves. This makes it look so flattering on. I also love that this is a bomber jacket that’s light. It has a silky fabric on the inside to keep you warm, but it’s not heavy duty like other bombers. It’s slouchy, making it a great spring and summer piece, too.

I’ve been wearing these necklaces quite a bit recently because I’m loving the layered look. I have on my silver disk choker and butterfly necklace. I’m sure you’ve seen these before, but I love to add them on when I’m wearing this outfit. Of course, I had to add my bag and black boots.

As you can tell, the accessories are pretty crucial for this outfit. They make everything look so chic but edgy. I’m really into how this look contains so many accessories that don’t overpower each other.

Also, I thought that I would quickly add in that this jacket is from Free People and comes in different colors too! I’ve been wearing quite a bit of Free People lately. Their stuff is always so fashionable.

What’s your go-to outfit? Let me know below, and feel free to comment what you might like to see next on here.

Here’s what I’m wearing:

Ruched Velvet Bomber from Free People in the color Stone

Basic Crew Neck Tee from LAmade in White (they don’t seem to be selling it in white right now, but have many other different colors)

Joni Jeans from Topshop in Black

Silver Disk Choker (similar here)

Butterfly Necklace from Boma

Black Pointed Toe Boots from ASH (similar here)

The Best Dressed of the 2017 Grammys

Hey everyone!

I wanted to upload this blog post last week, but because the Grammys were on Sunday night I decided to wait a few days before I put this up. I’ve been looking at so many different websites at all of the outfits from the Grammys. I want to show you my favorite looks today! I love writing these types of posts, and I hope you enjoy reading it!

Emily’s List of the Best Dressed Women and Men

Adele: It’s no surprise that I love Adele. I was so excited to see what she would be wearing at the Grammys, and she did not disappoint anyone. She wears her green gown from Givenchy so well. She looked so gorgeous not only in that outfit, but also the black dress that she wore when she sang her song of tribute. I think both dresses compliment her, and  I also love how her hair looks with the outfits. Both pieces are so chic and shiny. She looked beautiful in both!

Beyoncé: Beyoncé always wear such extravagant and elegant outfits when she attends an awards show. I absolutely love both of the outfits she wore! My personal favorite is the gold embellished gown. The thick gold necklaces accessorize the outfit well, and the veil she’s wearing is also so pretty. I also like her second look with the red sequined dress. Beyoncé can pull off two looks that are completely different at the same show! She looks stunning in both outfits!

Nick Jonas: I love Nick Jonas’ outfit from Balmain! I didn’t see a lot of suits and outfits for men that were particularly interesting, but his stuck out to me. It’s very clear that he’s wearing Balmain, which is always good for the model and company’s business. The studded jacket and silk shirt looks so effortless but classy. His outfit has the perfect mix of practical but edgy!

Ed Sheeran: Ed Sheeran is yet another person on this list that I happen to be a fan of. I’m so excited that he’s back! I love the outfit that he wore. His suit is so clean and tailored, and I love the blue tie with the black suit. I also think his glasses are the perfect accessory! Their light gray color really helps them to stand out, and the pair compliments his outfit well! I think Ed looked so cute and sophisticated at the Grammys!

Solange Knowles: Solange Knowles looked so pretty at the Grammys! Her outfit from Gucci was very different from anyone else’s, and it really made her stand out. I think she also looks amazing in the gold color of her dress. Since her dress was a statement piece, I like that she kept her jewelry minimal. Overall, she looked gorgeous!

Kelsea Ballerini: Kelsea Ballerini wore a really pretty piece from Ines Di Santo to the Grammys. I love how her dress has little flowers made of different beads! It adds sparkle to her outfit and makes it interesting against the nude fabric. It’s simple but sweet.

I hope you all enjoyed watching the Grammys and reading this post! What’s your favorite look? Let me know in the comments!

Thanks for reading. xo

Hello everybody!

I have a super cute outfit post for you today. I love doing these, and this one works for the colder weather 🙂 I hope you enjoy it!

I’ve been looking for a red and white striped shirt, and I found this one at Forever 21 for only $9…talk about a bargain! I don’t usually buy clothes from there, but I was able to find this and have been wearing it quite a bit. It’s pretty thin, so I plan on wearing it in the summer too tucked into a pair of high waisted shorts.The quality doesn’t feel terrible either. I feel like Forever 21 is one of those stores where you just have to pick through everything, and every once in awhile you’ll find something cute. I’m not sure if this is online, but I’ll link it below if it is or similar tops.

I paired it with my favorite Topshop Joni jeans, because do I honestly wear anything else? I promise I do.

I’m wearing a denim jacket that’s actually kind of cropped with this look. I love how shorter jackets look with high waisted pants. The lengths compliment each other so nicely. I also love how you can see my sleeves poking out from under the jacket.

I had to accessorize with my boots and my bag. Adding a pair of pointed toe boots instantly makes an outfit look so much more sophisticated and dressy. I love how the boots are tight at the top too. You don’t ever have to worry about your jeans untucking.

To make this outfit a little bit more causal or laid back, I would swap the boots for a pair of Converse and the denim jacket for a zip up hoodie. I think it would look so nice, and it’s such a small and easy change to make. I think it would be the perfect daytime to nighttime outfit.

I hope you liked this little OOTD! Thanks for all of the support as always.

Here’s what I’m wearing:

Red and White Striped, Long Sleeved Top from Forever 21 

Joni Jeans in Black from Topshop

Denim Jacket from BP (similar here)

Leeway Place Handbag (all info. and links here!)

Black Pointed Toe Booties from ASH (similar here)

It’s pretty clear by now that I love handbags. This is the newest one to my collection. I know that I showed it in my last blog post, but I wanted to talk about it more in full detail!

This bag was a Christmas present, so I’ve been using it for about a month now and can give it a full, honest review. I love this bag so, so much. There are so many things that make it the perfect bag; I’m not sure I can list them all.

To start off with, I’ll tell you a little bit about the bag itself. It has a big, main pocket which you can zip closed, and inside there it has some built in pockets for anything extra that you might want to tuck away. It also has a zip pocket inside, which you can see in the photo. This pocket is bigger than you would think, and is great for storage. One of my favorite things is the front flap. It’s held shut by a magnet, but it’s so easy to just lift it up and grab/put away anything you need in the hidden pocket. I mostly use this area for my phone. I always seem to find that I’m unzipping my bag to grab my phone quickly. This front pocket is so useful when you’re on the go.

The bag is made of a pebbled, pink leather. Not only does the bag have texture, but the pebbled leather makes it so that it won’t scratch as easily. I am also in love with the color. As many of you can tell, my favorite color is pink. I tend to stick to black accessories so that I don’t have to worry about my outfit not matching. However, I am so obsessed with this color and it’s helped me step out of my comfort zone! I will wear this with basically any color, and it always looks cute.

As you can obviously see, the bag is a satchel so it has a removable and adjustable cross body strap. I love satchels so much. I like wearing cross body bags, but having those shoulder bag handles really helps when you’re running around.

The handbag has gold detailing and is lined with a black and white striped pattern. It’s so cute in so many different ways!

All in all, I highly recommend this bag. It fits so much but can still be light, and the color of it is perfect! They also sell this bag in other colors if the pink might be too outgoing for you.

Sorry for the small lack of posts 🙂 I’m back and planning. 2017 is going to be a good year for Emily’s Edge, I can feel it already!

Pink In The Night

Hello everybody!

I have been wearing a lot of pink lately, and I wanted to show you how I styled it. Pink is actually my favorite color, and I love that I’ve been incorporating it into my outfits.

To start off with, I’m wearing this super pretty t-shrit. It’s a beautiful rose color. I love how soft it is and the fit. I wore my black Joni jeans because of the brighter colors I accessorized with. As you can see, I have on my custom made Bad Suns jacket. The jacket has a lot of color from the paints and pins, but it can still be worn with basically everything.

I added a lot of jewelry to this outfit that would make a statement. I have on my crystal choker and hoop earrings. Hoop earrings are a really big trend right now.The ones that I’m wearing are the perfect size because of the fact that they’re not too big. You can’t see it in the pictures, but I also have another stud piercing in my cartilage and a ring on.

The item that I am the most excited to talk about in this outfit is my new handbag. I was lucky enough to get this pink Kate Spade bag for Christmas, and I have been wearing it nonstop. The color makes any outfit look full of color. I tend to get into a habit of wearing all black bags, so I love how different this one is.

Another thing that I want to bring up is the fact that I’m wearing a pink shirt and a pink bag. I would normally be skeptical about wearing this just because it is all pink, but I really like how this outfit looks. I think accessorizing with denim pieces really helps because the look won’t seem overpowered by pink.

I know that this outfit is similar to other ones that I’ve worn, but I really wanted to show you how I style two pink items. Before we know it, it’s going to be spring. We might as well stock up on our pastel shades now!

Also, would you guys like to see a blog post all about my bag? I’m thinking that’s what I’m going to make since I have so much to say about it.

Metallic/Chrome Nails and Butter London Review

Hey everyone!

Happy New Year! I am so excited for a fresh start and yet another year of blogging. I currently have lots of blog posts planned out. I can’t wait to share them all with you!

I finally decided to write this review about Butter London nail polishes and how to achieve the super on-trend chrome/metallic nails. I’ve been using Butter nail polish for a few months now, and have been loving the results. I’m a huge nail polish fan and this is definitely my favorite brand, which says a lot!

The color that I’m wearing is called Fairy Lights. It’s a super pretty pinkish-lilac shade. As you can see, the nail polish is already really metallic in the bottle. All I did was apply two coats of it in order to have it this pigmented. I honestly think just one coat of this nail polish would be fine, but I added an extra coat to make sure it was perfect.

I love that applying the polish in order to get this color was so easy. I know a lot of people go to nail salons in order to get shiny nails because they require a powder or special nail polish. This is a much more simple way and is just as effective. Not only does it save money, but it also saves you a trip to the salon to get your nails touched up weeks later.

Butter London nail polish is amazing! It has many benefits, including the fact that it lasts longer than other polishes. I know that I can wear it for a week without noticing any major chips or cracks on my nails. It’s also perfect to use if you’re traveling. When I went away for a week, I painted my nails with one of their colors because I knew it would last me the whole trip. Another great thing is that these polishes dry pretty quickly, so you don’t need to worry about them smudging.

A lot of nail polishes include chemicals that are not particularly good for your health. Butter is actually made without the eight chemicals that are usually put into nail polishes. Not only will you love your manicure, but you will be happy to know that you are not dealing with some of the horrible chemicals usually in polishes. Because of this, Butter actually tends to make your nails stronger and helps them grow.

There are so many different colors and shades that you can get. The price is definitely worth  it! I highly recommend Butter London. If you’re looking into getting chrome or metallic nails, definitely check this color out or their other shades!

I hope this gave you some helpful information!
