Not So Plain Jane

I’m so happy to be able to feature my very own sister and style role model for this edition of

Who What Wear Wednesday!

As I’ve said before, Jane has definitely taught me everything I know about shopping on a dime…or a penny.  Not to mention, she has the BEST style out of everyone I know. You think I’m exaggerating? Think again.

You know those people who are always dressed perfectly for the occasion, when you stress out about what to wear for AGES and you’re still not confident about your outfit? Yeah, well. Jane is that girl who is wearing the best outfit in the room…I’m the stressed one. Let’s just say, I never complained about getting her hand-me-downs when we were younger.

So, when I was home last, I went to lunch with her and I couldn’t NOT take a mini photoshoot of her Sunday afternoon look.

(She was recovering from a friend’s wedding, so she wouldn’t let me get her whole body, even though she was wearing her ADORABLE Ray-Ban eyeglasses.)

Cardigan: H&M (similar); Scarf: Target (similar options here and here; Jeans: Urban Outfitters (similar here and on sale here; Purse: Zara (unavailable); Sandals: Urban Outfitters

Doesn’t she make it look so effortless?

Now you can understand where I learned how to mix my timeless pieces  (like Jane’s Alexis Bittar Bangle and simple gold necklace from our mom) with a Target scarf and make it look like a J.Crew ensemble.

Don’t forget to keep up with my #OOTD on Instagram (or Webstagram)! @emmafakesit

Think Pink

For some reason, I always find myself buying neutral colors. My closet is full of blacks, whites, and grays. Yes, I have random spurts of color throughout, but not enough.

Luckily, I’ve admitted to my problem and I’m moving forward. The other day I decided to step out of my comfort zone of neutrals that I’ve nicknamed the Gray Cloud and I got a MAGENTA summer scarf from Atlanta Activewear.

Anyone who knows me, knows that I am totally and completely obsessed with my scarf collection–from wool scarves, to circle scarves, to pattern scarves…you name it, I got it! I don’t fool around when it comes to my pashminas.

I unveiled my newest addition yesterday and decided to pair the summer scarf with some neutrals (shocker, right?). The Vivante scarf worked perfectly with my Zara white jeans, S Tank by Bordeaux, and Steve Madden nude flats. I double-cuffed my jeans to add a little something extra to the bottom of my outfit.

No matter what I wear, I always have at least 2 pieces of gold jewelry on me—okay, it’s not all REAL gold, but it looks like it, right? My go-to gold necklace is the Signature Clover Necklace by Stella and Dot. My mom surprised me with this gem for Christmas after seeing me constantly wear gold necklaces from Forever 21.This was definitely an upgrade!

The ultimate goal for my golden collection is the Cartier Love Bracelet (I know…it’s amazing). But, until that dream comes true, I absolutely LOVE my gold bangle from Kate Spade. It’s simple, elegant, and it has an adorable inscription on the inside saying “As Good As Gold”. Looks like the real deal, huh? Plus, it pairs perfectly with my Michael Kors gold watch.

And I can’t get enough of my Deepa Gurnani headband–it matches everything and adds a little sparkle to my blonde ‘do.

So if you’re stuck in the Gray Cloud, too, definitely consider thinking pink! It adds an extra level of spunk to any outfit.
