I wasn’t planning on doing “a year in review” on the blog but I will admit, the nostalgia got to me! Considering it was my first year blogging the journey down memory lane was a sweet one ♥ It’s amazing when you compile all the highlights into a single post, all the blessings that ensue!!!
A few of you have followed me right from the beginning (all the LOVE to you seriously). Thank you for the unconditional support from day one AND being patient and gracious as I figured out my direction. As I have said many times before my blog wasn’t exactly pre-planned, it was something I had always wanted to do but my mind was never in the right place to see it as something viable. Mind set shifted and I literally jumped in. It was a mess but it was my beautiful mess and that’s all that mattered.
My motto was “progress, not perfection” and honestly, all I ever wanted from this year was to MAKE THE EFFORT. I don’t know how many times I told Benjamin that the results weren’t what mattered, the effort was. To be honest, it felt like I failed more than I succeeded but maybe that’s not such a bad thing. Persist, persist, persist! That’s what I intend to do with my whole heart.
With that said here’s to my favorite moments from 2017, fashion and personal, XOXO, Emmarie.
LAS VEGAS, NEVADA
Vegas!!! Round 2! Ben and I loved it just as much the second time (if not more) than our first visit.
Off the shoulder tops and festival shorts were my fashion go to! As well as adidas baseline sneakers.
Travel style here: Mesh Active Legging.
My obsession with white pants began. White jeans, white shorts…ALL summer long ♥
I had the privilege of styling a few wonderful people this past year (so honored and grateful to you, you know who you are ♥).
My most adorable models were definitely @ Style With Me ~ Summer Casual. Take a look ♥
As you can see, having a sister in law this gorgeous made for easy styling!

From helping Alanna find the dress of her dreams, hair (had the honor of doing it myself), makeup, etc, I was blessed to be there every step of the way. Helping her feel her most gorgeous confirmed over and over again just “why” I do what I do!
