I feel in love with Mrs. Emily on Instagram. She makes (gorgeous) skirts, which is enough, but her fashion philosophy, her openness about how this is hard (making things, putting yourself out there, believing in big dreams), and her styling tips have made me a loyal follower.
You can shop and learn about Mrs. Emily here. I highly recommend subscribing to her newsletter. It’s like a hug from a supportive friend who’s pushing you in the direction of your dreams. It’s a highlight of my week.
When I first found Mrs. Emily, I knew that I had to have one of her skirts. They’re chic and fresh, and I love the idea that it’s a skirt for all season. Something to wear no matter what the weather is like. Something to put on that always makes you feel good.
So. I chose pink. Which may seem like an odd choice to be a skirt for all seasons. But I think it works.
This isn’t little girl pink. It’s not too sweet. It’s chic and the pop of color makes me happy. Even when it’s in the 60s like today. And it goes with everything:
Spring and summer with a tank and sandals
A bit formal with a bustier and heels.
Fall and winter with a sweater and boots.
Office ready with a blazer and heels.
And these outfits are just the beginning. I can (and have and will) pair this with a graphic tee and sneakers, a sweatshirt, a jean jacket, a button down, jackets and coats of all colors, blacks and whites and greys and who knows. It makes me feel good (and the waist band is forgiving which is nice during the holidays!). A skirt for all seasons is a skirt that can love you back. Who couldn’t use a bit more love right now?
I cannot tell you how much I love Mrs. Emily, there just aren’t words. What I can do is tell you that her site (Mrs Emily and her Instagam (@mrsemily) will make you fall in love with her like I have. Check them out!
