Em Saves

Hey, there! Remember me? I'm sorry I abandoned all of you for a few months. It suddenly dawned on me that the reason I was having so much trouble posting regularly on this blog was because fashion blogging is no longer my main passion. After two long years, Adelaide Stayed and I are parting ways.

But I'm not ready to say goodbye to blogging just yet. A few weeks ago I started a new blog about personal finance, called Em Saves, and I would be absolutely overjoyed if you took the time to visit. We can even still be blog friends if you'd like :)

Family Reunion

I spent this past weekend in Hull at my cousins' beach house with my entire extended family. I found a few opportunities to practice taking pictures and wanted to share with you all!

How was your weekend?

Will Summer bring the feeling back to our toes?

Since today marks the second day in a row my boss has worn jeans to the office, I feel like there's no point in continuing to stretch my distinctly Casual wardrobe into five separate Business Casual outfits a week. Not that you guy have seen any of my business casual looks (oopsie). I'll try to post more outfits, but it's pretty hard to find friends who have enough free time to take my picture/it's pretty hard to take selfies when you don't have a tripod. Just sayin'. Also just sayin' my birthday is next Monday, so...

SOWA Market

Since I am a fashion blogger, commonly accepted stereotypes demand I visit a flea/antique/farmers market at least twice a season, if not more. The South End's SOWA (SOuth of WAshington street) Market allowed me to reach my quota for the Summer this past Sunday. After going, I feel that SOWA is kind of like Eastern Market's slightly less cool younger sibling (or maybe I'm just biased because I'm from DC), but I still enjoyed spending the day there.
My favorite part was the Roxy's grilled cheese sandwich I had for lunch. But does it compare to brunch at Montmartre?

Tell me about your weekend!

Sit by a river

Super low-maintenance today. Simple dress, air-dried hair, a few accessories and minimal makeup. My friend Camille is in town this weekend, so we spent the day taking advantage of the beautiful weather with our other friend Teo. I think my favorite part of the day was watching sailboats on the Charles with our feet in the water.
H&M dress via Goodwill; Charlotte Russe ring; vintage necklace; Etam earrings; H&M sunglasses; LOFT sandals
And yes, this is my natural hair texture :) I usually straighten it because it's much easier to manage that way, but I'm enjoying my curls this week! What does your hair look like when you put away the hot tools (or, as my friend Cailee's dad calls them, the Torture Devices)?

The other morning I had one of those elusive Perfect Moments that happen so rarely you have to take note of them when they find you. I was sitting on the daybed in my living room reading a book and drinking iced coffee when it started to thunderstorm outside. I stopped reading for a minute and listened to the sound of the rain, just appreciating the present and being totally at peace with nature and with my surroundings.

And then I immediately updated my Facebook status about it.

Chi-what now?

If you live in the greater Boston area, you've probably heard about Dale Chihuly's ridiculous blown glass exhibit on display at the MFA. I finally went the other day, and I was so totally floored by what I saw I had to share it with you guys.
The first room consisted of a smallish rowboat, filled with colorful glass sculptures. The floor was mirrored, so we could see the sculptures' reflections underneath.
The next room was a long strip of sculptured that looked like something I can only describe as looking like a Demented Underwater Rainforest.
The third room was empty, but the ceiling was covered in wavy circles that looked kind of like oyster shells.
The next room had several gargantuan sculptures hanging from the cieling, in all different colors. My favorite was the light blue.
In the final room we saw this. "Purple sticks stuck into logs" sounds totally boring compared to the other pieces, but look how cool!

I loved this exhibit and would recommend it to anyone who likes art and/or being aesthetically pleased :)
