Celebrating My 5th Blogiversary!

Wednesday, April 03, 2019

           Today I've got a mini strawberry cheesecake in one hand and a glass of bubbly in the other.  Can you believe that I am celebrating my 5th blogiversary!?!  It seems crazy to think that I started Elizabeth, Marie, and Me a half a decade ago!  I love capturing my style, sharing my current fashion finds, and my styling tips with you all.  So, thank you so much for coming along for the ride!  

           Okay, let's set the sweets aside and talk about this look. It wouldn't be a typical EMME (Elizabeth, Marie, and Me) outfit post without sharing with you what I'm wearing.  To celebrate 5 years of blogging, I decided to wear an asymmetrical bubblegum pink blouse and a pair of high-waisted white pants.  This blouse is a wild card for me because I'm not usually drawn to blouses with heavy draping, but this one caught my eye at Zara.  There was just something about its unique design that made my heart flutter, so I went with my intuition and purchased it.  Sometimes you just have to go with what makes your soul sing.  

         On that note, I paired this outfit with fun accessories that always bring a smile to my face.  I mean, aren't these cherry earrings the absolute cutest?  Besides the red cherry baubles, I accessorized with a pair of red sunglasses, a gold bangle, a wicker purse, and the same exact red pointed heels I wore in my 4th blogiversary post.  It certainly wasn't planned, but it certainly is a cool little coinkidink!  And that's the whole look!

         Whether you have been here from day one or if you're just stopping by today, I just want to thank you from the bottom of my heart!  Blogging isn't as easy as it looks, but the joy I feel from sharing my style and connecting with you makes everything worthwhile.  I've learned so much over the years about myself and the business behind fashion blogging, and I hope that we all continue to grow together.  Last, but not least, thank you to my mother, my photographer, and her assistant,  Aunty Laverne.  Elizabeth, Marie, and Me wouldn't be possible without your artistic talents and constant support.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!  As always, fashionistas, I am sending you lots of love from my heart to yours!

"Fashion you can buy, but style you possess. The key to style is learning who you are, which takes years. There's no how-to road map to style. It's about self expression and, above all, attitude.” -Iris Apfel

  1. Happy half decade to EMME, Kristen! Your style is surely unique and fabulous even if I didn't entirely agree with every element of every outfit. What you bring to fashion is surely something special. Even more so to know that you've been doing this for now five years with fans worldwide. As for this outfit, I adore your top, pants, and pumps. As with just about any of your outfits, adorable smile and hairstyle. Once again- congratulations on five years of blogging!
