Fall Fashion Week - Thursday!

** I am very sorry that the linkytools site I have been using for our link-up has been so troublesome! Some of you have had issues linking and other times the whole thing disappears. I will try to find a more reliable service for our next fashion week! Thanks for your patience. xoxoxo **

------------------------

Today was a busy day! One of the first things I had to accomplish was returning the *very* late books to the library with two boys in tow. I had to pay $19.20 in fines! hahahahaha.

oh, me.

I kept things simple since I knew I would be lugging 2-3 squirmy boys around town all day.












Headband- Gift from friend
Ears- my favorite thing about my head. (I have a thing for ears. I think girls with big ears are GORGEOUS!)
Sweater- thrifted
Backpack- vintage, thrifted
Shorts- F21
Holey Shoes- Grasshoppers by KEDS, thrifted (and missing a shoelace.)



I loved reading your stories about complimenting people yesterday. After reading some of your posts, I just wanted to run out my front door and start complementing everything that moved! haha. I actually followed a SUUUUPER cute pregnant girl around Target for a little while until I could catch up to her and tell her how beautiful she was.

Mayhaps I am being a bit too zealous with my challenge?

Mayhaps MY BUTT. This is fun!

;)

Tomorrow is our last day!! (Pretend I am not weeping.) I have been having an insane amount of fun doing this with all you ladies this week. Again, thank you so much for being such QUALITY human beings. I adore you all.

I love your top! It makes any outfit look fabulous. And, I didn't know they still charge late fees at libraries.

Julia said...

Leopard print shorts! Leopard print shorts! So awesome.

Lea said...

Oh my gosh! You are the cutest!! <--- I think I've said that every single day but it's so true!! Those shorts are adorable!! Great outfit, and your little backpack was a great find!

E said...

I'm sad to see it end as well. What will my motivation for dressing be? :)

I love those shorts. You look stylish and beautiful, squirmy kids and all!

Veronika said...

Nobody will ever believe you are the mom of 2-3 (haha) squirmy boys! Have a great day.

Aminda Joy said...

I am absolutely in love with those shorts! Leopard print is my fave!
And, every time I go to the library, I end up being too busy to go back and I have to pay a bunch of fines. Every. Time.

deanna@delirious-rhapsody said...

what amazing shorts! i wish i could pull those off as well as you!

Charlotte said...

I love that your ears are your favorite part. That's just adorable. As are you!

I think I perpetually have fines on my library card. hey, it's people like us who keep libraries funded right? :)

Danielle said...

This outfit is stunning on you. Emery, you have such a great style. I can't really pinpoint which item I love the best in this outfit. It's all perfect.

I hate having late fee with the library, but it's totally worth it sometimes.

I'm a little sad that fall fashion week only has a day left too. It has been great participating!

Molly said...

I got a mental image of you dodging down aisles in Target to catch cute pregnant girl and jumping out in front of her to say, "YOU LOOK PRETTY!" Thank you. It made me chuckle, although I'm sure that wasn't what happened... in my mind it did. :)

The whole outfit combo is pretty durn fantastic. How oh how do you find such fabulous treasures in the thrift stores? The detail on that sweater!!! You continue to amaze, beautiful lady.

April said...

Adorable look, mama! Love that top and those animal print shorts. Cute story about 'stalking' the preggers...I bet she loved your comments!!

lexi said...

Emery, has anyone told you how nice your face goes with your hair? :) Thank you for your sweet comments this week, they are very encouraging! I love the ruffles on your top, so cute.

The library thing is funny, they were going to start charging a yearly fee at a library nearby and a friend was complaining about the $20 a year fee...I laughed and told her I'm already paying for that service 2 or 3x's over. You're just keeping those librarians employed! Have a lovely day jostling sweet boys!

such a cute outfit! i love that top. and i love that you love big ears! i have a thing for gap-teeth. oh my. i seriously considered asking my orthodontist to give me one! haha.

Mrs. Bianca said...

I hate that I just barely discovered Fall Fashion week! You are so adorable! I'm really diggin' on those shoes, missing shoelace and all!

Lauren said...

Those shorts are amazing!

And as a girl with big ears, Thank You!

Jeanine Byers Hoag said...

What an awesomesauce outfit!! LOVE the animal print shorts. And the backpack. It all just goes together so well!

Too bad about the linky! I will just have to visit some of your commenters to see what they are wearing.

How funny! I bet the pregnant girl was so happy that you were so zealous. I know it would have made my day!

Amazing outfit, as always... That backpack is incredible. I want one! Also, I think you've inspired enough confidence in me to wear a headband. I've felt so silly wearing them before that I just take them off.

Shana said...

haha yes...I was complimenting everyone...and it is so funny to see peoples face...OBVIOUSLY we don't do it enough when they think you are actually mocking them..why is it so hard for us to take a compliment! haha Love this...and I am also sad this will be ending...but so happy I have gotten to meet so many wonderful ladies!!

Loving those shorts!!!

Your outfit may be simple but it is seriously cute :)

Anna said...

So cute! I especially love love love the backpack. What an awesome thrifty find! You always inspire me to think outside of my sporty mom clothes.

shannon (the daily balance) said...

i love this outfit! i am also new to your blog and loving it!

katie said...

cute sweater and fun shorts, and i really like that you love your pixie ears. =)

Mandy said...

Seriously. Quit being so cute, mama! : )

KristinChaos said...

Everything is so right with this! Wishing I could pull off shorts like that! I've never been brave enough to try an animal print!

girl willow said...

You look beautiful...again!! And I adore your hair!!!
This has been so much fun this week...!

Ruthy said...

I think your comment about big ears is very intriguing. I have ears that are big and I am still learning to live with them. I love those shorts and that little backpack is just too cute.

Talia said...

mmm, this outfit is picture perfect. I love your little shorts!
and I love the challenge you put forth to us too... I really have been trying to find opportunities to give people compliments of some sort, whether it be on their looks and clothes, or something deeper. Last night at our small group I told a new girl that she had beautiful hair and she looked so surprised and said she doesn't usually get compliments! How sad. It made me want to compliment as many people as I can. :)

The Beckster said...

So cute! This is my favorite outfit all week that you have posted (and the other ones were great too!) I will not be posting tonight because my two year old needs all my attention (although I am taking a minute to comment!) but that's okay -- I will post tomorrow. Just participating for fun anyway. Thanks for setting this up Emery!

The Beckster said...

Oh -- and guess what, I used to have that exact same top and I LOVED IT -- forgot all about it until I saw your post, I wonder what I did with mine?!!

Caitlin said...

you look like you're about to go to school with that little backpack on.
so sweet!

Christina said...

Heh, I am pretty convinced by now that you could be wearing a trash bag and somehow make it look fashionable. I love how you can pull off so many different styles! :)

marla said...

i have to admit, i'm kinda excited to meet someone who has outfined me at the library...haa! [speaking of which, i wonder when my library books are due...]
this outfit is fantastic. love your lacey sweater. and your hair looks adorable like that. you and your ears are gorgeous.

Rachael said...

I didn't blog about it but I've been handing out (meaningful, mind you) compliments like candy. And it gives me energy each time. I feel like I'm a ball of love that's growing and growing... All from fashion week!
And yes, I agree. Ears are just about the most beautiful thing on a woman (the more they stick out, the better). It makes them/us look elfish or fairish. Which is just how you always look. Like a darling fairy. Especially with a headband like that.
And those shorts just made you the coolest mom this side of the equator. And the other.
