Project Emilie: Chicago Extravaganza

Emilie recently said, "everyone knows about my modeling career."  As a Project Emilie fan, I think you'll be happy to know that her modeling career was taken to the next level in a new city: Chicago.  My cousin (Emilie's nephew), David, got married, and we were excited to celebrate his wedding in style!  

Emilie and I want to teach you stylistas how to steal our style, so shop our photoshoot with the pink links below the pics.
Emilie's top city chic trends:
Colored pants
Evening wear
Fun necklaces
 Walking the Magnificent Mile in style!
Tip: White looks fresh and summery
Get Emilie's Daytime Look:
hot pink top; white pants; Stride Rite flats (similar here)
Get My Daytime Look: 
H&M top (similar here); Celeb Pink shorts; Anne Klein flats; Karmaloop spike bracelet
 Emilie and I went to B and D's rehearsal dinner after a day of shopping!
Tip: A classy dress or colored pants are fabulous choices for a summer dinner party
Get Emilie's Rehearsal Party Look:
white blouse; red jeans; statement necklace
Get My Rehearsal Party Look:
If you ever need someone to help you write a speech, ask Emilie.  She wanted to raise her glass of Diet Coke to congratulate the "husbands to be."  Genius - I wish I would have thought of that myself!
Em and I posed with my mom and my cousin, Brian
We walked around and "detoured" the city
Tip: When traveling, I like to use a pink crossbody purse and Em prefers a Vera Bradley backpack
Get My City Chic Look:
Kenneth Cole ruffled blouse (similar here); H&M paisley shorts (similar here); Adrienne Vittadini flower sandals (similar here)
Get Emilie's City Chic Look:
yellow top; cardigan; royal blue pants
Emilie was inspired by my Hanes Better Than Bare post, so she decided to wear Hanes Hosiery to the wedding!  We almost look like twins with our blue dresses and silver shoes.
Tip: The right accessories and shoes can turn a simple dress into a stunner
Get My Wedding Evening Look:
Get Emilie's Wedding Evening Look:
blue ruffle dress; Charming Charlie necklace (similar here); Stride Rite silver sparkle shoes (similar here)
 After the reception, Emilie wanted to take the elevator.  I told her our fashion blog readers would be more impressed if she took the stairs like she does at Larry North Fitness, and she agreed, "you're right."
Em was sick of the paparazzi by the time we got in the taxi
 This is Em and I after a long night of dancing and partying hard


  1. So gorgeous and so glamorous!!! You are as stunning here as you were in person. Love you both so much :)

  2. Both of you look outstanding. I loved all of your dresses. Made me so inspired for my friend’s 25th birthday party. She will be hosting a fabulous Oscar inspired party at one of the best Chicago venues. Hey if you have some easy hairstyle ideas, please share that too.
