Summer Style from Maurices (and a coupon!)

Plus Size Summer Style from Maurice's with Authentically Emmie

Leapin' lizards, it is HOT outside! Cue my favorite summer staple: the maxi dress. They feel like pajamas, can catch a breeze, are comfortable, and look cute - why would you NOT love them?!

Cold Shoulder

MYNT 1792 Cold Shoulder Dress on Authentically Emmie

I mentioned trying to go out of my style comfort zone, and this dress 100% pushed me out of it! Back in August I had the red version of this cold shoulder dress from MYNT 1792.

Fifth Fitbloggin’!

Emmie at Red Rocks

I returned home earlier this week from my fifth Fitbloggin' conference! I feel incredibly lucky to be able to call the people in the Fitbloggin' community true friends. My friends from home usually give puzzled looks as I get wound up prior to the conference: I get to see all my internet friends! But they're real friends! But I know them from online! But they're real! Yeah, I'm real eloquent at times. *eyeroll* To be honest, I feel like many Continue Reading
