I like to think that if I were ever to be awarded an Oscar for goodness-knows-what, or famous enough just to be walking the red carpet, I would stick to my roots. We talked about wearing a Free People gown to awards shows here, and I’d love to dress this simple number up with a nautical statement necklace and some signature gold bangles.
I’ll be live-streaming Academy Awards coverage Sunday with Kayla Harrity and Cassidy Quinn Brettler– be sure to follow me on Twitter @emilygeaman for updates, as well as Cassidy’s YouTube page to stream. Put on your best party dress, grab some champagne + truffle popcorn, and join us for the fun :)
We were chit chatting about red carpet-worthy Free People gowns yesterday, but here’s one of my favorite everyday looks from the store. Worn to the rodeo out west on my family’s trip earlier this month, cowgirl boots and all.
Last night marked the 70th annual Golden Globes, and you better believe I was live streaming coverage as the evening went on! While some snuff at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s awards ceremony, as it isn’t quite the Oscars, I’m always almost more curious to see what will grace the Red Carpet on this night. Some play it safe and boring, some use it as an outlet to take bigger risks, but there is always the fair share of questionable hairstyles, more-karats-than-I’ll-ever-know 77 Diamonds, and James Bond-esque dress slits.
One dress that stood out to me, between all of the Chanel and Dior, was that of Quentin Tarentino’s date, who supposedly wore Free People (UPDATE: It was in fact a Mara Hoffman gown for Free People!). At this point, she’s still being reported as “guest,” and when you’re a no-namer, Karl may not be knocking on your door with countless offers to wear one of his creations. I thought an FP gown was a smart and stylish move on her part, and brings up the idea of making a statement in less-than-couture…
One of the perks of being a blogger is that, in the midst of sharing all of these gift guides for helping giving to everyone on your list, you also get to publicly share your own holiday wish list… am I right??
I share my love for Boston on here quite often. What I don’t share enough is my love for that little town over the river known as Cambridge. I’ve been spending lazy weekend afternoons there lately, and these photos come from a stroll around Harvard’s campus– an area I don’t get to nearly as much as I’d like to ever since I moved to this side of the Charles.

One of my favorite things about Boston is that you are never more than an hour away from a beach. We put up with some pretty gross + unbearable winters here, but it’s worth it when summer hits and you can hop on [literally] a subway to sand. This is my favorite sort of New England beach look: a nautical two-piece, lightweight maxi dress, and a wide-brimmed sun hat. And of course sunscreen– I signed the sun savvy pledge long ago and hope you will too!

Boston’s EarthFest may be worlds apart from Coachella, but I still saw it as an excuse to rock my inner flower child. And one to celebrate some of the best bands of the 90s! Here’s to the nights we felt alive…
Nothing speaks spring to me like florals! This is the season in which the hippie flower child side of my style starts to peek through… when I can’t decide if I’d rather be at the Carolina Cup or Coachella…
