To Meredith, Janis, and Natalie

My sophomore year of college, I worked as a leasing agent at a student housing property in College Station, Texas with retail space and a boutique next door named Sabi. One afternoon, I had the pleasure of meeting the owners of the boutique, Meredith, Janis, and Natalie, as they walked through the lobby. About a month later, Meredith and Natalie came up to the front desk and asked if I would be interested in working and modeling for the store. I was a bit taken back by them wanting me to model for their business because I had never been confident in my appearance. On my first day taking pictures, I met the other models- Alex and Britta, and thought to myself, “NO way they want me to take pictures with them!” These two girls are the most beautiful people I have ever met, both inside and out. Alex and Britta taught me how to be confident in my own skin and always gave me constant encouragement. Sabi is also the place where I met one of my very best friends, Allison, which I am forever grateful for.

Working at this boutique is where I learned my love for fashion. Having Meredith, Janis, and Natalie believe in me has been the biggest blessing. If I am being 100% honest, I don’t know if I would’ve had the courage to start this blog without having the experiences that I had working there. I am beyond thankful for these women and my coworkers at this amazing boutique.

It is only fitting that my outfit today comes from Sabi! First of all, I have to talk about how amazing these jeans are. Paige Jeans are the comfiest jeans of ALL time- I could literally sleep in them! This sweater is absolutely adorable and I’m OBSESSED with the back! I don’t know why, but I’m always drawn to clothes that have a unique back. I’m also wearing several pieces from the new Kendra Scott spring collection (I’m in love!)

Hope everyone has a great week- love you all!

My name is Emily Herren and I am the founder of Champagne and Chanel. After years of stalking countless fashion bloggers, I have decided to follow my heart and start my own blog! Everyday I would scroll through my Instagram feed and think to myself, “wow, I wish I could be like them!” About 4 months ago, I turned to my boyfriend, Daniel, on the couch and told him I’m actually going to do this! I am setting aside my fears starting with this post.

Now lets get to the good stuff- fashion!

I always find it funny how people in Texas are so indecisive when it comes to the weather. In September, all we want is the cold. We can’t wait to wear our riding boots, blanket scarves, and chunky sweaters! However, the second it drops below 40°F, we’re like “Heck NO! Give me back my Texas heat!” Although it’s still a little chilly outside, adding a pop of color, such as hot pink (my fav!) is the best way to look forward to spring! I absolutely love this sweater from Forever 21 (under $30!) paired with this beautiful Kendra Scott necklace (that my sweet sister, Kaitlin, got me for Christmas!) Unfortunately my pumps are sold out, but I found some similar (almost identical) here! I found this handbag at H&M for under $50, when it looks like it cost $1000! The quality is amazing as well!

Anyways, thank you so much for taking the time to read my blog! If you have anything specific that you would like me to blog about, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me!
