Spring Staple: T-Shirt & Jeans

When in doubt, wear a t-shirt and jeans! I’m so excited to finally shed my coat and wear a t shirt around town! I recently got this Rolling Stones tee from Nasty Gal. I’ve never shopped from there before but I love this shirt! It’s so comfy (are we surprised that I’m excited it’s comfortable?) and the colors and flags are so fun! While I’m not a Rolling Stones fan (oops), I think graphic shirts are great staples for summer. They add a little something extra to a basic tee. Go ahead and rock that Cher shirt even if you’ve never seen her in concert! I paired it with my tried and true high waisted jeans from Abercrombie. While their other items don’t thrill me, they do have great jeans! I’ve had the cutest grey espadrille slides for a few years now and thought they added a summery vibe to this outfit. They’re Franco Sarto from TJ Maxx. I’ve linked everything I’m wearing here!

London Guide 2019: What I Wore, Ate and Did!

This is the ultimate guide to London if you’re going for the first time or visiting again! As a blogger, I definitely found some amazing places to take pictures! But even more important, great places to eat and explore! London is such an amazing city and I can’t wait to go back again someday. It has taught me just how small the world really is, but also how different anything outside of your city, state or country can be! I am so grateful that I got to experience this country. Check out all of my outfit details on my liketoknowit page! https://www.liketoknow.it/EmilyKarra

There were parts of London that made me feel like I was back in the US, shopping at Quincy Market or scouring Soho on the weekend. It’s pretty wild how another continent still has bits of home. Of course there were factors that I had to adjust to…pounds, people driving on the opposite side of the road and their inability to make a proper hamburger. haha okay they probably do have places that make a good burger! However we went to a cute pub one night and the burger was far from anything I’ve ever tasted. Basically I would steer clear of their beef! I had fish and chips- they were AMAZING! We had gelato, carbonara pasta (my fave!) and so much more! I’m such a foodie, so getting to experience another culture was so exciting! We went to Greenwich one day and they have a cute market there. It’s right on the water and there’s a ton of food to choose from! We got strawberries and bananas with Nutella, and it was some of the best fruit I’ve ever had haha.

We stayed near Covent Garden at the Strand Palace Hotel, which is GORGEOUS! We had such a great stay. It was right on a main road but not noisy at all. I loved being so close to so much! I highly recommend staying in the Covent Garden area if you’re heading to London. They have the cutest shopping and restaurants all within walking distance of each other. It’s also near Trafalgar Square and 7 Dials which is cool! We saw Kensington Palace which is a must in my book because I love anything to do with the Royals! (especially Princess Diana) We had tea at the Number Sixteen Hotel. The tea was so good and they had a great assortment of food too! We saw Notting Hill, the Natural History Museum and Harrods. I can’t wait to visit London again and explore new areas that we didn’t get to see. But we saw so much in a few days. I hope you liked this travel guide and found it helpful!

Acorn Street

I spent the weekend in Boston a few weeks ago and we got some amazing shots! Acorn Street is a blogger’s dream- or anyone that wants a good photo lol. It was FREEZING but we had a great time exploring and grabbing coffee of course! I finally tried oat milk, for those of you that don’t know- milk is definitely not my best friend. I can have it in small amounts, but have been trying to get away from it for the most part. Oat milk is so good! I personally love oatmeal so I think that’s why I enjoyed the taste. What’s your go-to “milk?”

I scored this sweater from H&M! I don’t shop there often as they’re a huge fast fashion company- along with Forever 21. Both contribute exponentially to the amount of waste and pollution that the fashion industry produces each year. For 2019, please do yourself a favor and watch “The True Cost” on Netflix!! It changed how I shop and I hope it does the same for you. Anyway- back on the actual topic haha. This sweater is so Free People-esque! It’s super comfy too. The thing is, with fast fashion, you can find GOOD pieces that will last and not break the bank. The problem is most people buy and buy and buy. It’s on sale? Then you have to get it. Its kind of cute, and less than $20? Need it. Instead of constantly consuming, take a step back and decide if you reallllly need those pair of pants or if you’re just excited for a deal. Shop smarter and less often. Think Marie Kondo for your wallet! lf it sparks joy and you know you’ll wear it at least once a week/month-depending on the item- then go for it!

I paired this sweater with my favorite jeans from Just Black. They have some of the most comfortable denim ever! My booties are Dolce Vita. My necklaces are also from Forever 21. For all outfit details click here and then click the picture from this blog post!

Winter Style in 2019!

Happy New Year!! I hope you guys had a great NYE. I’m obsessed with this outfit…who else is loving neon for 2019?! I know I slapped a filter on these photos, but this pink color is amazing! It’s a bit more magenta/red than it appears- but take a look at the sweater in the link I attached and you can see the true color and the other colors it comes in! I paired it with grey skinny jeans from Old Navy (so comfy!) and of course, white sneakers. l’m a white sneaker fanatic- they’re comfy, cute and go with everything. My bag is a Nordstrom Rack find from All Saints. Find out all the details of my outfit here!

The Target Sweater You Need This Winter

Target is definitely one of the the best affordable clothing stores! I love their sweaters and pretty much everything they have for fall/winter! Everyone needs a good chunky sweater in their closet. This one is just thick enough without being overpowering. The best part? It’s $19.99! I paired it with ripped girlfriend jeans and red velvet booties!

We shot at one of my favorite areas in the city, can’t go wrong with a good skyline!!

How to Style a Statement Blouse

You can never go wrong with a statement blouse! Especially in the fall/winter season, it really adds to an outfit. I personally love anything flowy- and this is the perfect combo of airy and chic. This blouse gives major boho vibes! I got this from Zara and I love the green color, ruffles and floral pattern. I paired it with high waisted jeans and over the knee boots! This was taken at the cutest orchard that we went to in Vermont. It’s so fun being able to travel and shoot at different locations! Where do you want to travel to this winter? Leave it in the comments!

How to Style a Faux Fur Jacket!

Alexa, Svitlana and I spent the weekend in Vermont (last week) and it was soo stunning!! We stayed at the cutest cabin in the woods, check out my Instagram to see more of our adventures! https://www.instagram.com/whatemwore/

We stayed in Putney, Vermont and I definitely recommend checking out southern Vermont in the fall! I grew up going there every autumn and I’m glad that I got to go back and see it again. I loved going to the orchards, saying “hi” to some horses (there are farms everywhere!) and just chilling out! Of course, we had to get some blog shoots done- I mean who wouldn’t? Honestly it’s so fun, it never feels like work! I rented the prettiest fur coat from Rent the Runway! As you all know, I love this website. I’m not being sponsored or anything of the sort- just love them! I paired the jacket with an oatmeal mock neck tank top and mom jeans! I also wore my favorite Dolce Vita boots. I’m linking everything in this post! Lastly, my necklace is from https://www.etsy.com/shop/TakingItPersonal!! I am obsessed with layering pieces and Dee Dee makes the cutest jewelry! Thank you for the necklace!

You Need These Jeans For Fall!!

I found the cutest pair of mom jeans from Garage. I will link them here: http://shopstyle.it/v/dm0!! They are so comfortable. Some mom/vintage jeans don’t have a lot of give but these do. You all probably know I am denim obsessed, so when I find a good pair, I relish in it. haha Unfortunately they are sold out, but keep an eye on them because they will probably come back! I paired it with a chic dolman black sweater- for whatever reason I got major Paris vibes! What are your favorite looks for fall??

My cousin and I ate at Freemans in Soho and it’s seriously one of the best brunches I’ve ever had. We also love The Smith!

Jumpsuit Days

The most comfortable pieces in my closet are jumpsuits. They are so easy to throw on and so comfortable. You don't have to worry about them being too tight, like jeans or flying up, like a dress. It's kind of the best of both worlds! I recently grabbed this jumpsuit from TJ Maxx. I love that it's a forest green color with mustard flowers because it really helps transition my style into the fall! I have some fun trips planned and fall fashion is my favorite!!

Another item that I always consider a staple in my closet are white sneakers. It doesn't matter if it's April or October, I'm wearing white sneakers! haha. In all honestly, they're incredibly comfy (can I use another word?! Cozy?) and chic. I'm sure you've noticed a plethora of other bloggers wearing white sneakers, and they just make sense to me! I've been an Adidas fan for years, but mine are worn to the ground and I was searching for a new pair. The newer Adidas all have memory foam in them, which is great, except the entire structure of the sneaker changed. They don't have as much give as they had before.

For most people this isn't a problem, but I have bunions. You may have realized I don't show my feet a lot in my posts. My feet are my least favorite thing, lol, but really. Huge thanks to myself for constantly walking on my tiptoes as a child (and still do a little now, oops) and dancing for 18 years. Anyway... I LOVE the sneaker trend because it's comfy, cute and everyone can wear them! I recently got the Puma ones I'm wearing in this shoot. They have a little platform which I also think is so unique! It's nothing huge, as much as I like to make a statement, these can be worn every day. My bag is from All Saints, I got it for a steal at Nordstrom Rack! Here's a link to the shoes, similar jumpsuits and bags!

Late Summer Lace Maxi Dress

I recently went on vacation and decided to rent a few things from Rent The Runway! I love this website and I think it's especially amazing for bloggers, trips or special occasions. There's different packages and you can choose which fits best! I am obsessed with this lace periwinkle maxi dress from The Jetset Diaries. I pretty much love anything lace/crochet and this was no exception. I love that you have the ability to try styles and trends without having to commit to buying something, and if you love it- you can buy it! I'm not being paid or anything to say this, it's just a fun way I've learned to try new styles.
