So, I started this feature way back when I first started blogging, but I let it go just because I was finding it difficult to approach moms with amazing "street style". I'm pretty shy! So, I've decided to re-vamp and drop the "street" and just feature mamas who have great style! This time around, I want to introduce Emily of The Style DuJour!
I connected with Emily a few months after I started my blog in 2015 when we collaborated on a jewelry giveaway. She's since moved on from sharing jewels on Instagram to sharing really fabulous fashion! You will want to follow her - she's stylish, gorgeous, and her photos are really beautiful also!
Learn a few things about Emily below:
Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, former PR girl and current work-from-home mom
Number of Children
Two littles under four. My current (and most demanding) clients, Teddy and Sloane.
Favorite item you are wearing today
A light pink mohair Cole Haan coat I just discovered at T.J.Maxx on the clearance rack. I love finding these kind of treasures when shopping!
Favorite Clothing Brand
I’m not sure If I have one specific brand I love, but when it comes to favorite stores, Zara and Anthropologie probably tie as the stores I could spend all day at. I adore Zara’s European-influence and how they make designer runway trends accessible. I love the bohemian and whimsical style of Anthropologie apparel, accessories and cute things for the home.
Favorite Handbag Brand
Kate Spade and Rebecca Minkoff (must).
Zara is my go-to for fun statement bags.
Favorite Makeup Brand
M.A.C. and Smashbox have always been staples for for foundation and powders, but most recently I’ve added Julep and E.l.f. to my makeup kit. I also recently discovered www.ShopMissA, a makeup retailer which sells everything for $1. This is my new go-to spot to experiment with different colors, shades and finishes.
Favorite colors to wear
Hands down navy and black. Forget the faux pas, I like wearing these two colors together because even a pair of leggings and a t-shirt will look polished. I typically add a pop of color, whether that’s in my jewelry, a pretty neck scarf, handbag or coat. And stripes! I love anything with stripes. It’s such a classic detail.
Your Signature Style
High-waisted culotte style pants have been on rotation for me all year. They work all-season - just add a bootie or tall boot for these colder months – and they make me feel more polished and dressed without any added effort. On a typical school day with the kids, I’ll wear H&M high-waisted denim culottes with a grey or black sweater, neck scarf and low-heel booties.
Must Have Beauty Products for Every Day
My skin routine is all about hydrating and repair right now because this winter weather is so rough on my skin! I use e.l.f. bubbling hydrating mask as a cleanser, followed by an antioxidant serum (from Trader Joe’s) and Advanced Clinicals Argan Oil Intensive Beauty cream. At night, I’ll also use a coconut oil on my hands, cuticles and even the ends of my hair to help hydrate overnight. When it comes to makeup, my day-to-day routine has to be really quick. As long as I have some mascara, tinted face lotion and a bit of cream blush, like Julep’s Skip the Brush in Golden Guava, I’m good to go!
How long does it take you to get ready each morning?
I typically have about ten minutes to get ready while my kids are playing. If I can manage to wake up before my little ones, I’ll have about 30 minutes. Let’s just say I stock up on dry shampoo!
Celebrity's Style You Admire
Olivia Palermo (all hands in the air emoji!) She always looks effortlessly chic. She’s the definition of street style perfection in my book.
Why You Love Being a Glam Mom
Honestly, I love being a mom and If I can look and feel glam on some days, that’s just icing on the cake to me!
