A Week in Review of Em & Gracie

This is a review of Em & Gracie’s social media posts this week so that if you missed them or you’re not on social media, you can see them all in one post.

I had a bundle of clothing this week for Fall just waiting to be tried on and posted. Having my picture taken is definitely NOT my favorite thing to do but in the world of fashion blogging, you have to do it because as we all know, things usually look different “on” than “on the hanger” or “online.”

This week I had the pleasure of working with my friend Susan. Her specialty is nature photography but she was brave enough to offer to try something new and work with me. You can (and should :)) follow her Instagram here. She has a good eye for…well, basically everything as I learned this week. From the lighting and setting to positioning and helping me fix my clothes, hair and face (“Maria, just shake your face then smile” – ha!) she is amazing. We laughed A LOT and I think it was a win-win for both of us. An afternoon of laughter, cute clothes and great weather. What fun we had!

Move over those frumpy, boring turtlenecks and say hello to this! It’s rich, fall-ready 🌻 color and breezy high/low hem makes this top PERFECT for layering…& just look at the sexy back! …also can we please talk about these boots??? They are seriously the most comfortable boots I’ve ever owned. There’s something in the sole that feels like a pillow…no idea what it is but my feet love it! Lined with cute, breathable plaid flannel, they also keep your feet toasty. Worth every penny and currently on sale! The jeans fit like a $250 pair of jeans but they’re not that💲! Get ready to see them in many of my posts because they’re keepers!
