Rollneck Sweater's are Back

Fall is definitely in full swing, and I couldn't be more excited. Although here in Charleston it's not particularly cold (we are still in the mid-80's here), I'm still determined to make the most of it. I am thankful that I'm not in the hot sun much and are either are work in the air conditioning or in another building.

Sweaters are probably my most favorite part of fall and always manage to steal the most of my money in the season. I'm a sucker for feeling warm and love long sleeved garments. I spotted this sweater at work a couple of weeks ago and fell in love. I was really conflicted on which color to get between the white and the pink. I ended up changing my usual shopping habit and purchasing the pink and I'm in LOVE!

September Favorites

This month has completely flown by and I don't even know where the time has gone! From the starting school at the beginning of the month, going through a hurricane evacuation and getting back into the swing of things, it's been a lot. I definitely have gotten acclimated with everything with school wise and have been figuring out what works best for me. This September has definitely been a lot of change and adjusting, but none the less I was able to find what products work best from day today!

September Influencer Q&A

If you have been reading my blog for a while, you know that I used to do monthly interviews with bloggers. It was a super neat way to get my reader exposed to different people and connect with different bloggers in the field! I'm starting it back up today and bringing you my September Influencer Q&A! I interviewed one of my friends Emily from the blog Love Emmarie! We met over the summer when she was interning in Los Angeles and have been great buddies since! 

Let's get started!

Please introduce yourself!

Hi y’all! I’m Emily, the blogger gal behind Love Emmarie! I’m a Texan born and raised and a senior studying fashion merchandising at Oklahoma State.

How was Love Emmarie created?

I started Love Emmarie wayyyy back in high school under a different name, and finally rebranded right before college. I started the blog to share my favorite outfits, but since then it has evolved into beauty, fitness, travel and so much more!

How has doing Love Emmarie throughout college taught you and what are your favorite parts?

I think the biggest thing blogging has helped teach me in college is time management. That is one of my main weaknesses is procrastinating and doing things last minute (like getting this interview back to Sophia...sorry babe!). I know that if I want to stay on top of my school work, blog, social media accounts AND my social life, I’ve got to hustle and get stuff done!

What would be your ultimate dream for your blog to grow to?

My ultimate dream for Love Emmarie would be to branch off the blog and open the Love Emmarie Shop. As a fashion merchandising major, my dream career is to open up my own boutique someday, so I would absolutely LOVE to tie my two passion projects together!

What is something you think your readers wouldn't know about you?

Off the top of my head, I think a lot of my readers don’t realize how tall I am! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve met someone from social media in person and they tell me that they didn’t realize how tall I was. So just to clue y’all in, barefoot, I am six feet tall and with shoes well it just depends on the heel. ;)

What has been your all-time favorite collaboration?

I think my favorite collaboration I’ve done was the Madewell campaign I participated in last year with HerCampus. Madewell is like my all time favorite store, so getting to work with them was like a dream come true! I hope to work with them again in the future!!

What would you say is essential to creating new content and sharing it with your readers?

Your own personal touch! I hate when all the bloggers or YouTubers I follow feature the same pieces or all do the same kind of posts. It just gets boring after a while. And also consistency! Find an editorial schedule that works for you and stick to it! If you post super randomly, your readers get confused. A schedule keeps them coming back!

If you could switch Instagrams with for a day, who would it be?

Hands down Jacey Duprie from Damsel in Dior. I’m OBSESSED with her. Like if I ever met her I’d be so calm and collected, and then flip out once she walked away. We’d be best friends I just know it.

I’ve done one of these posts in the past and y’all really enjoyed it! It’s essentially a roundup of some things I’ve been loving and talking about it a little bit more in-depth than I usually would. It was a super fun idea created by one of my all-time favorite bloggers, Mechanize Horan, and is something that I love reading on her blog!

With college being in full swing right now, I thought it would be fun to do this more often and talk about things that have really been big in my life right now!!

Listening… When studying for exams and just doing homework, I am a big fan of listening to music. I usually can't-do classical music or anything without words, but I have been playing Arctic Monkeys and The Weekend on repeat!

Loving… Dry Bar Whipped Dry Shampoo is amazing!! I am such a big fan of dry shampoo since it’s effortless and easy to use, but sometimes I don’t like the spray on and the color to my hair. I picked up this whipped version (essentially a mousse) and it works so much better!

Reading… Anything Refinery 29 for Fashion Weeks! (Plus who can’t stop reading about the Versace Milan show!)

Wanting… I’ve been eyeing these Charleston sweatshirts sold at Skinny Dip. They are so darling and simple and perfect with jeans and a tee shirt for fall!

Watching… Anything on Bravo TV. Fun fact about me is that I watch all of the Bravo shows constantly, and are always my go-to’s!

Wearing… my linen J.Crew tank tops constantly. Plus they are all on sale!!
