Shifting Summer

A short summer shift is a bold move for us long legged girls because anything I wear looks short on my legs haha! I'm glad the shift had sleeves otherwise I would've felt too exposed. If you're going to rock a shift make sure that you cover up on top so you can show off your legs! 

Shape Shifters: 

Lewis Sweater Shift  is a good option for fall (shame on me for bringing it up). You can wear this one with deep plum leather booties. 

Tunic I'm wearing (No longer available)

My bag is Rebecca Minkoff from like 4 years ago! Cuter option here

More adorable shifts, wedges, and clutches

Banish the Brass

Summer will take it's tool on your gorgeous highlights. Brassiness is super common and luckily very easy to take care of. Look how crazy my hair color is. Time to freshen it up. My hair looks CRAZY here and it is in serious need of some purple goo. 

Do not fear the purple. In fact, you want to find a dark, heavily pigmented purple shampoo. Don't go towards light or transparent shades.

Apply the purple where you have lighter strands. For blondes you will go from the root down, for brunettes like me with highlights you will focus on the body of your hair where the light strands are. Leave the shampoo on for 3 minutes then rinse. 

If the purple isn't workin for ya then just hop back in the shower and use your regular shampoo and it will wash out. It's not a big commitment!

Emmy's Picks:

1. Clairol Shimmering Lights Shampoo $7.99 seems to be a crowd pleaser and is affordable.

2. Dumb Blonde Violet Toning Shampoo $17.99 Bedhead always has great products, and don't be fooled dummies- this shampoo is for all hair colors (not just blonde).

3. Rita Hazan Ultimate Shine Gloss $26.00 This is the product I bought today. I bought the purple bottle "Ultimate Shine Breaking Brass For Blonde/Brown" This is a leave in treatment/gloss so I am excited to see how it comes out. I read mixed reviews but I am in serious need  of a toner and Mariana Hewitt talks about this product here in her Sephora Haul video which is where I got the product recommendation! On a separate note I think i should start a youtube channel.

So what's the verdict? Do you tone your hair with purple shampoo in between salon visits? TRY IT!
Alright babes, Happy Sunday and I am happy to be back in the U.S and blogging again :)

Thank you for all of your wonderful comments, feedback, and support! I appreciate it very much.

Flash Back Friday: Farrah Fawcett and The Return Of The One Piece

Farrah Fawcett knows all about being a bombshell. Rocking a bikini is one thing but owning your inner beach babe in a one piece is a whole other level of confidence and grace. Emmy's tip: pull your hair up into a high ponytail or throw on some aviators. 

Who's your Flashback Friday muse? Comment below! And don't forget to follow Boys and Bombshells on the side of the blog via Google Friend Connect.

Blogger Crush Wednesday: Gal Meets Glam

Who: Julia Engel is the blogger brain and beauty behind Gal Meets Glam.

One of  my biggest inspirations when I started fashion blogging was that I wanted Julia Engel's life. Her hair, her clothes, her job, her house, her relationship with her husband... and all of this fresh out of college! I have one year until I graduate (no pressure). What girl doesn't want to mix fashion and beauty with their career!? I aspire to have quality content like her blog.. the photographs are always pristine and her style is the perfect mix of feminine and cute. Think eye-catching, simple yet glamorous, and definitely girly! She has the same style as me so I would totally steal all of her outfits! 

Get her style: 

Who are your blogger crushes? It's WCW so Boys and Bombshells loves to support other bloggers on this day especially! 

Stay motivated, hungry, and inspired.

Get The Look: Jessica Alba's White Blazer

Theory White Blazer  ($415) Fully lined and loose fitting- the long hem is flattering. Make sure your aren't swimming in the fabric- especially for petite and shorter girls. The longer hem will work towards your benefit if the blazer is tailored at the waist. 

Madame PM ($3,500) A lady never skimps out on a handbag. Jessica Alba carries some seriously feminine purses-look for soft colors and hints of French flare. 

Alexander Wang Tank ($75) A worn-in white tank top paired with a blazer is tres chic. Wear with eggplant pants like Jessica or a dark denim wash and leather. 

Topshop Jacquard Shell (On sale for $44 at Nordstroms pre-fall sale!) This mint green color looks flawless with white. 

Larsson & Jennings Gold Watch ($364) Your time is precious and so are your accessories. Jessica wears a sophisticated gold watch to her night-out look. 

Alice and Olivia Eggplant Pants ($264) Lightweight fabric with these bold color pants- great for the office or professional settings and way more fun than boring black. 

Genetic Los Angeles Mid Rise Skinny Jeans ($191) These jeans are a perfect fit and wash for adding a blazer. Also roll up 1/4 inch at the ankle like Jessica did here.

Sophia Webster Riko Pumps ($695) These shoes are a major lust-have. A woman should have two things: Good hair and good shoes. Waah-laa. Another option from Joie

Melissa Jean Jason Wu Flats ($105) Playful red ballet flats with the current cut-out obsession. 

Keep it classy like J.Alba ladies! Next stop: the hairdresser to get her beautifully colored locks!
