So, I once again filmed a hair tutorial and the card reader once again...deleted it. So this weekend we're gonna try again and hopefully next week I'll be able to share a video with you.
I've spent all weekend and most of this week house sitting for my parents and it's been really wonderful getting to spend time with my siblings. Getting to go on hikes, make huge dinners together, it's been a blast. I don't have a lot of photos to share but here's an outfit I wore a few days ago.

I've applied to a couple schools here in Nashville that have music positions open. I'm reeeally hoping I'll get one. If not, I'll be completely happy this fall teaching pre-school, but I would really be excited to be able to teach music this fall.  Keep your fingers crossed for me.

jeans freddies of pinewood
shoes super old nine west (I think)



  1. You look lovely! I love the collar :) Good luck on the schools!

  2. Oh that blouse to so cute!! There is one similar to it in the antique mall near me, but it's $68. Guh.

  3. Pink is my favorite color.

  4. Good luck with the positions you've applied for! And love the outfit. That blouse is just perfect!

  5. Cute! Love the softness of the blouse with the casual jeans ;)


  6. Good luck with the places you've applied! I love that blouse and your hair looks lovely. Have a great day,girl! :)

  7. Aw... sorry about the filming difficulties! Fingers crossed you get that worked out--and you get one of those music teaching jobs too!

    Love your outfit! Blouses of this sort are a huge staple in my wardrobe, though I don't have a pink one. Hmm... ;)

  8. That card reader must be cursed! I hope you get it working correctly soon, I would love a video tutorial. Fingers crossed for that, and for the music teaching job. :)

  9. That soft, antique peach hue is so strikingly lovely on you, dear girl, and I just adore how you partnered it with your Freddies Jeans (I wear pink with mine all the time, too). Marvelous casual look, especially for these toastier months.

    I'm very sorry that your video once again vanished into thin air, and will keep my fingers crossed that it doesn't happen again (third time's a charm, right?).

    And your hair is just rawkin'!
    Best of luck with the music teaching gig! I hope it works out for you :) I know the feeling of knowing you'll enjoy what's for sure, but knowing that you'd enjoy something else EVEN more!

  15. I hardly ever choose pants over dresses/skirts, but you always make me want to buy a pair of high-waisted trousers! And good luck with your job applications; I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!

  16. Hello Emma! Ooh, your blog is so pretty! Wow, you vintage siren you!! WHat gorgeous photos! Am pleased to 'meet' another music-teaching (well soon hopefully!) primary school teacher! It's hard finding the jobs isn't it! Hope you get the job!!!

  17. Hi Emma, Discovered your blog in a search for a similarly curvy gal who had reviewed freddies' jeans (am also 26-41). You are gorgeous and I'll certainly be taking style inspiration from you! My selvedge jeanies are coming shortly and I'm crossing my fingers.
