Emmy Fleshood Is the Off-Duty Cool North Carolina-Based Blogger You Need to Know

There's nothing better than a budding blogger who can nail casual, off-duty outfits like a seasoned street style pro.

After all, putting together looks that are both comfortable and cool (without looking like a slob) can be challenging, amirite?

North Carolina-based blogger Emmy Fleshood does just that: She mixes laid-back pieces with more feminine touches for a truly diversified style that reads much more East Coast than South East. In addition to managing her homework, content creating for social media and traveling the world (her Italy photos will make you swoon!), she's also the Vestique brand ambassador and has quite the enviable collection of Gucci accessories.

Get to know our new girl crush below, and don't forget to give her a follow!

Fun Facts:

1. What's the one moment that made you obsessed with style?

"I would have to say when I went to the Miley Cyrus concert when I was around 6 or 7, I went to the mall, and with the help of my mom, I picked out an awesome outfit to wear to the concert. It was so fun, and from that day on, you could always catch me trying on bold outfits and standing on the toilet in the bathroom, dancing in the mirror."

2. Tell us about your style. Who or what inspires it?

"My style varies based on the day. I have and will always be a girly girl, but I love adding grunginess to my outfits. Whether that be taking a girly dress and adding a pair of Doc Martens or taking an all-black outfit and adding some fun cheetah print Golden Goose sneakers. I'm also obsessed with street style and Hypebeast items, and I love incorporating them into my style.

I'm currently obsessed with the styles of Madison Beer, Olivia Jade, Suede Brooks, Alissa Violet, and Chantel Jeffries. They all go for that street style look with cool sneakers and Hypebeast accessories with a touch of girly girl."

3. Who takes your photos? How long is an average 'photoshoot'?

"Most times, for Instagram, I have my sister, friends, or mom take my photos, and those tend to take anywhere from 10-30 minutes, depending on what the photo is for. When shooting for brands I tend to take more time taking photos, but if I'm just taking a random outfit photo I'm usually way more laidback and just have fun with it. However, when doing shoots with brands it can take anywhere from an hour to five depending on location, how many looks and what kind of photos they're looking for. When it comes to doing professional shoots to build my resume, those take however long I would like depending on how many looks I chose to do."

4. What's your go-to outfit when you're in a rush?

"My go to outfit when I am in a rush is definitely a matching sweat suit if I am going somewhere I can dress down. They're so comfy and you don't have to worry about matching an outfit. I have a sweatshirt and sweatpants set from Brandy Melville and I always throw that on with some chic sneakers, a cool bag and sunnies. It's so cute and comfy. However, when I'm going somewhere I need to be dressed less casual, I go for boyfriend jeans, graphic tee, and golden goose. It's so chic and it doesn't look like you're trying to hard. I always get compliments when wearing this look. Love them both and they are both comfy and easy."

5. What's the best piece of advice you've been given, and from whom?

"I'm not sure where this advice came from, but it has to do with building your social media profiles. The advice being, the best way to build your social media is to be active. You have to grind to get out posts every week or everyday. Interact with your followers and keep them updated as much as possible. I have seen this work for me so much. Posting at least once a week has allowed me to see repetition and growth. I would totally recommend this tactic to anyone and everyone. It works!"

6. What's your favorite piece of clothing in your closet and why?

"My favorite piece in my closet is definitely my black turtleneck sweater. It goes with everything in my closet, whether it be plaid pants, skirts, leggings, jeans, everything! I find the turtle neck allows for a more chic and put together look over an average neckline. It's the best!"

-Emmy Fleshood

7. What's one thing you want everyone to know about you?

"One hidden thing about me that's actually pretty funny is I'm obsessed with the whole ASMR trend. I love things like slime. I find it so fun and relaxing. All my friends joke around with me about it, but I am obsessed [laughs]."
