OOTD: Boots and Scarf

Outfit of the day

As I already posted, I'm a little excited about my Target cowboy boots. I also got pretty excited recently about a new scarf that I got from Ideeli. I'm not a scarf person, but I loved the colors of this Nicole Miller silk scarf. Throw it together with a Kiyonna dress and I've got my outfit of the day. If I were trying to dress this up, I'd switch the boots to knee high dark brown riding boots or dress boots. Continue Reading



Note: I have several posts on here about my mom and her impact/influence on my weight and her death in 2007. Her death was one of the triggering life events that got me to my highest weight, but it is also one of the biggest reasons I continue to fight for my health.

First stop was the plus size clothing section, which has been downgraded to about 4 racks of mismatched, Continue Reading

Skinny Emmie was my first blog, and I had since launched my plus size fashion blog, Emmie Loves. I also have a sorely neglected blog on my more "professional" website and a blog on my company website, which is also needing some love. I spend at least 20 hours Continue Reading

Time Flip Flop


I'm going to try not to make a habit out of bullet pointed posts, but it's about all I've got in me this week! Website changes coming soon, which has me pretty happy! My internal clock is flip-flopped: My brain doesn't wake up at perform at its creative peak until about 2pm, and then stops around 2am. I've been fighting it and trying to be more regularly scheduled, but it's just making me more stressed out. Think I'll just embrace my clock Continue Reading
