Friday Faves – Edition 1: The Mule


The Mule is the perfect shoe to take you into fall and beyond.  As a working mom of two, the mule is the perfect option to throw on and go.  It’s a style that can be casually worn at work or sassed up a bit for date night.  I’ll be wearing mine all fall long with jeans + dresses.  It doesn’t take too much searching to find some fabulous options, but I’ve rounded up my five faves (I couldn’t resist the Sam Edelman, Lewellyn in the middle for myself), follow me on Instagram so you can see how I style these all season long!

1.)  I purchased these in the Cognac color and I LOVE them. I tend to wear brown shoes more than black, but these do come in a classic black leather version. I love the subtle stud detail on these too! 👌🏻


2.)  The Gianni Bini Brewsten mules from Dillard’s comes in three colors.  The tassel detail is perfect, and they are under $100!

3.)  As I always say, leopard print is most definitely a color.  The March Leopard Print Mule from ASOS is the perfect statement mule and under $30! 🙌🏼

4.)  The Adeinia Mule by ALDO is a classic looking mule that you will be able to wear season after season.

5.)  If metallics are your thing, this silver mule (comes in black as well) with buckle detail from Target adds a bit of elegance to your style.  These are under $30 too!

Welcome to Emmy Lou Styles!

Thanks for stopping by my little closet of the Internet and taking a moment to read my FIRST POST!!!  My name is Emily (middle name = Louise) . . .”Emmy Lou” to some of those closest to me. Emmy Lou Styles is a vision I’ve had brewing for awhile now.  I have regularly followed several blogs for many years and it has been a lot of fun, not to mention helpful with fashion and things like parenting.  I have always enjoyed styling and planning my outfits.  I am a passionate shopper that seeks out exactly what I’m looking for, I get giddy over great bargains, and I love to share all of this with others.  I may or may not have a shoe collection (yes, I do need 15 different pairs of brown booties, and no they do not look alike).  I think style is when you are able to piece together different items from different retailers to pull together something you love and feel fabulous in.  I believe leopard print IS a color.

I look forward to bringing you consistent content via Instagram, as well as more in depth stories and such right here.

In the meantime, feel free to learn a little more about me here.
