Splurge vs. Steal

target tan bootie

The Royal bootie by Free People has been popular for a few seasons now, but the price tag is pretty high.  I bought a similar pair from Target that gets pretty decent reviews.  It looks to be a great alternative!


ruched leith bodycon dress

The Leith ruched bodycon dress available at Nordstrom has been a top seller here on Emmy Lou Styles for quite some time now.  It’s a dress that looks great on everyone, and can be styles so many ways.  Check out my post on how to style this ruched bodycon dress!


off the shoulder bodysuit

Bodysuits are great for layering and give you the perfect tuck with your jeans.  I like to wear mine alone, or under a cardigan or kimono! Check out a post I did on how to wear a bodysuit!


women's oversized thermal

The oversized women’s thermal was a big hit in Fall 2017, and I suspect it’ll stick around in 2018 too.  If you don’t own one yet, this is great to throw on with jeans or a pair of leggings.  It’s a cute and casual outfit.
