Bachelorette Style Guide: Emily Maynard!

Hey everyone,
If any of you have been keeping up with The Bachelorette, you will know that the last bachelorette was the gorgeous Emily Maynard.  Her season finished a few weeks ago, and personally, I'm really happy about her choosing Jef (with one f)!   While watching the season, I developed a love for Emily's style.  It was very girly yet laid back with a little country twist here and there.  This season, Emily seemed to favour feminine dresses, super high heels, scarves and of course, lots of sparkle!  As well as, boots, blazers and the occasional leather jacket.  So, today I wanted to share with you a few Emily inspired outfits I put together from various episodes...enjoy!
I love how casual yet edgy this outfit is!  As girly as Emily's style is, I noticed that she likes to toughen up some of her looks with leather jackets, graphic rock tees and different styles of boots.  I really like this motorcycle tank from Urban Outfitters (both that and the leather jacket she wore are now on sale...click on the picture for more info!) because after watching a few episodes of the Bachelorette and seeing so many sequins and dresses, it was just such an unexpected, kind of edgy choice!  We often saw Em rocking her signature staple, a cute pair of boots, throughout the season.  The ones she wore in this episode were from Frye, but I found a more affordable version, perfect for the fashionista on a budget!  I think this outfit would be perfect for hanging out with friends or like Emily, for a more casual date.

Emily is definitely very stylish and quite girly, which I think is definitely reflected in this outfit inspired by the one she wore on Jimmy Kimmel.  The bright hot pink dress looked amazing on her and the turquoise earrings were right on trend for this season!  I decided to pair it with black peep toe pumps, a gold and turquoise ring.  Since stacked bracelets are a staple for Maynard, I also added a selection of white, turquoise, black and gold bracelets to finish off the ensemble.  This outfit is great for most events, maybe a night at the club and for night dates. 

This is definitely my favourite Emily inspired outfit.  Personally I think the pairing of an ultra feminine cream dress and the rough cowboy boots reflects Emily's girly meets country personality perfectly!  She often times wore dresses with more feminine silhouettes, similar to this one.  Inspired by her hometown date with Jef, I added a skinny brown belt to the waist line of the dress, and paired it with cowboy boots in a similar shade of brown.  I couldn't tell what jewelry Emily was wearing, but since she likes a little sparkle, I paired the outfit with these gold heart shaped earrings with diamond studs, and this cream and gold wrap bracelet.  I would wear this outfit on a casual date, and if you aren't feeling the cowboy boots, you could switch them out for a pair of nude heels!

    Emily was often seen wearing adorable striped knit tops throughout the season and is even wearing one in the promo picture on the top picture on this post.  I found this adorable pink and white striped knit on asos.com, and paired it with medium wash skinny jeans, a cute anchor necklace, and basic white sandals for a more casual look.  Emily is often times found wearing bright, statement earrings; I found a pair of gold and coral ones to finish off this ensemble.  This is definitely more of a casual Emily inspired look and could be worn for basically any kind of day time occasion.  To dress it up, switch out the sandals for heels and maybe opt for a darker wash skinny jean! 

Emily has paired a sleek blazer with a number of outfits throughout the season, and I just love how it can make a casual outfit look that much dressier.  One particular look I fell in love with is to pair a vintage looking rock tee with a sleek blazer and a scarf. (As seen in the very first picture).  I couldn't get the actual PacSun Van Halen tee that Em owns to clip onto polyvore, but the link to it is here. I paired the shirt and blazer with dark wash skinny jeans, a beautiful pair of basic black heels, and this gorgeous J Crew navy and white scarf.  I would wear this on a date, or to go out with some friends at night.  To make it more suitable for daytime, switch out the heels for a cute pair of boots.

So those are my 5 Emily Maynard inspired looks.  I hope you liked them, and if you want to know where anything is from, just click on the picture!

Which one is your favourite, and what do you think about Emily choosing Jef (with one f)?
