I just can’t look away.
But this season, one of the reasons I really couldn’t look away is because I seriously was in love with like 99.999999% of EVERYTHING Emily wore this season.
She would come on the TV and I’d yell, “OH MY GOLLY I LOVE THAT.” It was a regular occurrence. But, of course, most of what she was wearing was SUPER expensive and way out of my budget range.
HOWEVER, on the finale on Sunday, this Chambray + Red Maxi combo was the first outfit she wore – she was in it for MAYBE a total of two minutes, but the second I saw it I said: “OH MY GOLLY I LOVE THAT.”
AND I knew I could recreate it and put my own spin on it using what I already have in my closet!
I LOVED the relaxed look of the jersey maxi with the casual chambray – but I REALLY loved that she classed it up with a big ol’ strand of pearls. That’s a North Carolina girl for you!
So, here is my Emily Maynard inspired outfit!
[Chambray: JCrew (via consignment shop - purchase here, here, here, Red & White Chevron Skirt: Old Navy (on sale for $15 here!), Pearls: Old... costume jewelry actually... (similar here), Watch: Target (similar here), Sunnies: Target (purchase here)]
I don’t own a jersey knit maxi dress like the one Emily was wearing in the photo, but I do own this chevron jersey knit Old Navy skirt (the one I got for $5!) – so I paired the closest thing I have with my trusty chambray, my old costume pearl necklace, and my favorite Rainbow flippy-floppies.
I felt casual, comfortable, and as Emily Maynard as I can get. Sans veneeers. And a Jef with one F. I think she has veneers. Otherwise she has DANG near-perfect teeth. Jef definitely has only one F in his name. I still maintain that he looks like Rick Astley.
I mean, come on. Jef’s never gonna give her up. Or let her down. He’s never gonna run around and desert her.
Seriously. LOOK. The similarities are uncanny. AM I RIGHT?!
Anyway. Are you a Bachelorette fan? Do you at least love the fashion? What about Jef with one F? No? Bueller? Rick Astley? Wanna be Rick Roll’d again?
