Summer Hues ft. Red, White, and Blue

It truly seems summer is being pulled out right from under us! So much so that the Fourth of July completely came up from behind me and flew right past. However, better late than never to show a patriotic outfit, that honestly could be worn any day of the summer. I actually wore this outfit in Tallahassee when touring Florida State University!

Both the tank top and the skirt are from Hollister, thanks to the gift cards I finally got around to using. The red was a little out of my comfort zone, but with its intricate floral pattern, and paired with the skirt, it makes it so much more casual and reeeally accentuates the tan I’ve finally got going on:) This new skirt was actually a sought-out purchase for a while! The one I had previously wasn’t the right length for my body, which made me look shorter than I actually was (the importance of finding clothes that fit you is at an all-time high!) After a number of failed trips to TJMaxx, I finally settled to investing in Hollister’s selection, and boy was it worth it! I feel so much more confident with my legs, which allowed me to focus more on workin’ the red. The shoes are from Steve Madden which seemed like an obvious choice, and I topped it off with my rings/necklace from Forever 21, my wing bracelet, and scrunchie from Pacsun.

Thank you so much for reading!

Hello! My name is Emma, and I am pleased to welcome you to my blog, established in June of 2016 (which was a journey in itself). This blog has been the product of creativity, love, and countless hours designing and redesigning. A little about me: I am a graduated senior, coming from my community college's Early College Program, which entailed me receiving my AA degree after I graduated high school! In my high school career, I had been Captain for four years on the girl's JV and varsity volleyball team, became Vice President of our chapter of Technology Student Association, Historian of both the National Honor Society and Science National Honor Society, and received Gold and Silver Keys for the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards for my photography. Outside of school, I was involved in my local youth groups for seven years (four mission trips down!), had the opportunity to travel to Washington, DC to attend the Washington Journalism and Media conference, and work at an independent living elderly home. In February 2019, I got accepted to the University of Florida (Go Gators!), and look forward to spending my next four years learning about business and journalism. I play guitar, write, and take/edit pictures in my free time, and absolutely love spending quality time with my friends and family. This is a place where I can talk about a variety of topics, from lifestyle, to faith, fashion, and personal subjects. What's in a name? That, my friends, is an easy answer. I have always been quite observant, and in recent years, especially within myself. Introspective means to be "inward-looking," and for me, that's just the simple truth. For this blog, it allows you a glimpse into everything and anything I come across, whether it be about life, fashion, or travel! This is the place to feel included. Caio! -Em
