Making Statements in COLUMBUS!

Emily Semans (sorry, Mat) has been one of my sister’s best friends since college.  Ever since I met Emily at Miami I was immediately drawn to her preppy & classic style, sarcasm, & love for Sparks.  I am SO looking forward to palling around with Emily over the next several months as we celebrate my sister’s upcoming wedding at showers, bachelorette party, and actual wedding weekend!
Please enjoy getting a laugh while you get to know Emily & see some of her favorite things!
When asked how she would describe her style?  I would call my style classic with a love of bohemian accessories.  I aspire to Olivia Palermo’s style, but on most days I look more like a Baldwin brother decked out in Tory Burch. 
– Favorite Clutch:  This Prada clutch that was a gift from my parents a couple years ago.  (It’s actually a cosmetic bag, but honestly, who uses a Prada cosmetic bag?!  Or a Chanel tennis racquet, Kris Jenner.)
– Gold Bangle:  My favorite accessory is this gold buckle bangle from Henri Bendel.  With a working adjustable buckle, this piece makes me almost as happy as an Anderson Cooper WWHL appearance.
– Pop of Color:  I’m a huge fan of neutrals, but I also love me a POC!  My Mom wasn’t a big fan of yellow & orange when I was growing up, and I’ve pretty much not owned anything in either hue until recently.  The result?  A late twenties color rebellion.  My favorite POC this year is this Lilly Pulitzer dress that my mother-in-law gave me for my birthday. 
– Stripes:  Another wardrobe staple for me is striped pieces.  My closet is full of tops like this easy Bailey 44 top, which I love year-round.  I work at an ad agency that’s casual, and a top like this over skinnies is great comfy work wear.  
– Scarves:  I love pashminas.  Here are a few of my favorites, and my pup, Bernie, wearing one too.
