Louis Vuitton Emilie Wallet Review

Two Christmases ago, I received a package in the mail.

One of those packages you have to be home to sign for. YOU KNOW it’s something super special when you have to give your signature for something.

My two bosses, Angela Lanter and Emily Ann Gemma got together and purchased the Louis Vuitton Emilie wallet for me.

AND I DIED. DIED on my front porch when I read Louis Vuitton on the packing slip on the box.

After having this gem for over two years, I thought I’d write a review about it and how well it’s held up over the years.

Louis Vuitton Emilie Wallet Review

I’m very good at keeping both my handbags and wallets cleaned out. Not only does it help keep them stay neat and tidy, but it helps them keep their shape longer. Keeping the wallet clean of excess receipts and pocket change has definitely helped it keep its natural shape and not be overly stretched.

Both the inside and outside leather has hardly any wear and tear on it and even the leather zipper pulls are still in excellent shape after two years of use. The only area that is showing a bit of wear is the very front button. I’ve seen other used LV wallets where the colored leather has completely worn off and the metal is showing. Mine has a small dark rub mark on it but like I said earlier, I try to be very careful with this piece because I want it to last me forever. I pretty much treat it like a baby and it shows.

If you’re looking for reviews on other Louis Vuitton bags, I highly suggest you check out THESE LOUIS VUITTON BLOG POSTS from my cousin, Angela Lanter.

How To Tie A Trench Coat Belt Into A Bow

To me, trench coats are so classic and so very Audrey Hepburn. I’ve always swayed more toward the preppy look so having a basic trench coat in my wardrobe was a must. Not only do they look great, but I love the extra protection from the rain without looking like I’m wearing an actual raincoat.

It’s so easy to dress them both up and down. They look great with a simple t-shirt and jeans combo but can also be worn with your everyday office attire.

You probably know by now that flannel shackets, or shirt/jackets, are the hot trend for this fall.

I grabbed a few off Amazon a few weeks ago and I couldn’t be more in love.

Favorite Amazon Flannel Shacket / Jacket / Oversized Shirt
I bought both the solid red and pink flannels that you see above and I love them so much.
They’re light-weight corduroy material and perfect for layering.

I also grabbed the pink plaid shacket that you see below and it’s a heavy flannel material, definitely more jacket than shirt.

My Favorite Trench Coat To Wear Into Spring

My Favorite Trench Coat To Wear Into Spring 768 1024 Jenn Pennell

Hello Love!
If you caught my master closet makeover blog post, you know that I’ve been purging my closet and switching out trendy pieces for a more classic wardrobe. After researching on Pinterest, I realized that my coat collection was one that I could easy pair down. I had almost a whole row in my closet of outerwear and I was thrilled to donate most of the pile.
When it came to coats I kept 2 winter coats (one casual, one dressy), about 5 lightweight, and 2 casual raincoats. While I love the colorful raincoats I kept, I felt like I needed something a little dressier. I got on the typical websites, Nordstrom, Macy’s, and JCrew, but just didn’t find what I was looking for for the price I wanted to spend.
Y’all. After a google search I landed on this London Fog trench coat at Walmart.com, of all places, and for the incredible price of just $39.88. I quickly ordered the beige in XS and when it arrived two days later I went online to grab the link to share with you all and GONE. Completely sold out in every color and every size. I was able to find this exact coat at Macy’s and Nordstrom but the cheapest I could find it is for $168 at Macy’s. Why Walmart had it so cleap, I can’t figure out. Nordys and Macy’s have been running sales on it so you may be able to find it even cheaper.
If I that Walmart replenishes this one, I’ll be sure to share it on my Instagram stories so make sure you’re following me.
Anyways, this jacket is the perfect coat to grab this spring. It’s not super lightweight and is even great for those warmer winter days. I’d say if you need a coat and it’s between 40-65/70 degrees, you’d be good in this one.

Hello Love!
Last night’s last minute business dinner was the perfect occasion to wear my new little white ruffled top from SheIn. I’m seriously in love with this website and so glad that I snagged this op for only $8. I’m seriously still so surprised at the quality of products from SheIn and I’ll definitely be purchasing more next month. One of the pieces I bought was not a win but Angela told me to make sure I read reviews on every item I get and to pay attention to measurements because the pieces can run very different. 
Also, my dear friend Kim at Daisy Faye Designs is having a July special on the cute pineapple pouch that keeps everything in my purse nice and organized! You can grab it for only $15 this month only!
