The Em-Life: Keeping Up Appearances Day 7

**For 1 Week (and only one week, thank goodness!) Emilee and Marquette attempted to live a life that matched up to Social Media Standards, mostly just to show what that could look like in real life and how ridiculous the idea is. New to our Keeping Up Appearances series? See what all the fuss is about here, then catch up on what you missed on Day 1, Day 2, Day 3Day 4, and Day 5. Enjoy!**

Thank heavens Day 7 is upon us! It's my last day of the challenge and I could not be more ready to be done. I feel the things I had on my to-do list just sitting on the side lines and I can feel myself pulling towards my regular routine and my usual habits.
I did not get in all of my water today, I did not do my squats (for the 7th day in a row lol), I did follow my social media rules, I also washed my face, but only once today. I have really enjoyed waking up and reading something positive to start my day and I am happy to report I did that one all week! Woohoo!

As for the things I did accomplish today other than usual day-to-day stuff, here they are!
Here was my inspiration for my OOTD.

And my version!
Fedora: Target
Dress: JUNIEblake
Plaid Button Up: Target
Shoes: Converse

This outfit was crazy comfy! I wore it ALL day long, when usually I come home and I'm Misses-No-Pants the second I walk in the door, that says something! I get lots of compliments on this dress that I picked up from JUNIEblake, a clothing company from Thatcher, Arizona that I ADORE! Seriously their stuff is great quality, goes with everything, and is seriously comfortable.

I also did my nails day 7, I didn't really have a specific look I was trying to emulate but I got inspiration from a few sources on Pinterest. 

I took a little bit from each of these and came up with my own look!

I did a shellac top coat on these as well because I'm a shine addict.
Unfortunately because it is just polish with a shellac top coat (they aren't built for each other), I don't expect these to last the Shellac promised 2 weeks, but they are fall-ish and I love them!

Those were the two pins I completed today, I literally didn't have the mind power to make dinner tonight so we each scrounged for leftovers.

Today was 1 week into paleo so I weighed in and saw that I lost 3 lbs. by cutting out (most) sugar, grains and dairy! Woohoo! Small victories!

Tomorrow I will share my final thoughts on the project, what I learned and what's next for me so make sure to stay tuned!


  1. Well I know it's the last day but I'm going to miss these posts! Love the OOTD and you've inspired me to find some outfits to pin and try out this winter! The dress is my fav color! I think you did a great job considering the long hours you work and I love your nail polish!

    1. Thank you Alicia! This dress is seriously one of my favorites! I think it is on sale right now over at JUNIEblake's website!
