Inspiration Monday {channeling Emma Watson}

Thank you for all your feel better wishes, I'm happy to say that after a weekend of watching way too many Youtube Videos, finally learning how to do a sock bun (will debut later this week), emptying all the kleenex boxes and drinking lots of lemon tea, I am on the mend.  

We did however have a medical scare with my man in the wee hours of Saturday (4:30 am to be exact).  He has gall bladder stones and has had four attacks since the fall (including one previous hospitalization) but this time he was doubled over in pain and informed the triage nurse  this was a 10 in regards to pain level.  They brought him into observation and after waiting, morphine, waiting and more morphine he was finally released and told that unless someone experiences 12-24 hours of gall bladder pain (he experienced 7), surgery is not immediate due to a lack of resources.  So tomorrow he is meeting with a specialist and hopefully a surgery date can be booked so that he doesn't have to go through that severe pain again.

He's feeling a lot better now and we even managed to make it out to Veg Fest on Sunday before taking these photos with their whimsical shadows.

  2. I LOVE your jacket! I also bought a polka dotted skirt today, so thank you for making me feel trendy! :)
    Hope you & hubby are okay.

    (forgot my link! Hehe.)

  3. Oh, sorry about the hubby. I have friends that have suffered gallbladder attacks and I know they are horrible.

    The good news is that you look amazing. Love the mix of prints with the bright red jacket and the teal shoes.

  4. em, you look stunning! that jacket is dynamite. i like the red, & blue combination, such rich jewel tones. glad you're feeling better, but your poor boyfriend! that sounds miserable. :( did you take any photos at veg fest?

  5. That is a brilliant jacket and you look awesome in this outfit! Best thoughts and wishes to you and your husband :)

  6. Fun pattern and color mixing! That jacket rocks!

  7. oh, your blouse is almost identical to Emma's skirt! and I like the fact your outfit includes all those lovely springlike colours which look even more gorgeous in the sunshine :)

  8. Oh, I hope everything is Ok with your boyfriend/husband! Asap!
    Your outfit is lovely! Actually, I prefer yours to Emma's. I loved the jacket! And in fact, everything! Blouse, skirt, shoes... one of your outfits that became my favorite! You look very beautiful!
    Veg festival? Please tell Europe to have some... I have problems eating out...!

  9. Oh no, gall bladder stuff is no fun. I know a few people who had to have theirs out and it did make a difference.

    I love your jacket! It is so cute! It reminds me of the Beatles! And how fun is your clutch? Very nice!!

  10. Glad you guys are doing better. I always hear that gall bladder stones are the worse pain ever.

  11. I am so sorry to hear about it, Emily! I'm glad to hear he's feeling better now, and I hope that that all gets sorted quickly. :)

    You look adorable in this look! That skirt is super cute.

  12. Poor guy. Good thing he's got you around to take care of him!

  13. You poor things! I hope you're both doing lots better! I love these fun colors and the awesome bold print mix that you're totally pulling off!

  14. Love your take on the look. The way you mixed patterns and colours is fantastic!!

  15. Nice interpretation, I like the injection of your Emily style, the colors and prints are so you and fabulous. The red jacket is bold and adds a nice punch to the whole outfit.


  16. I'm sorry to hear about your man's health scares but I was happy to read in your latest post that he's got surgery lined up. I'm such he will very much appreciate the nurse costume ;) Maybe you need a maid one to make couch-cleaning more interesting!

    I LOVE how you interpreted this inspiration photo. I was totally impressed with your print mixing before I even saw it. The red military-style jacket over top was a great idea.


One of my daily joys is reading the lovely comments you leave. It may take a day or two (or three, depending on how hectic life gets!) but I will stop by your slice of the blogosphere soon! xo Emily
