The Cutest Espadrilles for Spring



OK you guys it's time to get serious. Because today we're going to talk about one of my FAVORITE shoe topics: ESPADRILLES!!! What? Espadrilles you say? Yes. Basically the chicest sandals ever invented. Espadrilles have been making summer feet look chic since goodness knows when and will continue to do so forever more! They literally never go out of style. And just get cooler every year. Don't believe me? CHECK THESE OUT:

Perfect for daytime cuteness, paired with skinny jeans, a skirt, a little sundress or shorts:


Also great for a dressy-casual night out:

Wide Fit Espadrille Wedges: $40 (Asos) *If you want to try them on in a store, these from Express are almost identical, but a tad pricier.

Look at this sweet pink pair I found! That color!


I love them in the black/white too tbh:


Y'all please don't sleep on Payless. They always have some cute styles and don't sleep on that BOGO action either! Style AND a steal j/s:


Also comes in PINK! Adorbs:


These ones from Old Navy would also be great for day/work:


Ok and last but not least let's talk about the metallic options! Living for it. So cute:


Peace, love and espadrilles! And happy Friday to all:)

Xoxo,

Outfit of the Day: The Perfect Little Black (Striped) Dress


Hi Ladies! Hope everyone is doing well and enjoying their week so far:) I don't know about you but I am ALWAYS looking for cute, yet office-appropriate looks for work that make me feel young and stylish and not 100 years old!!! Lol and at the same time they have to be comfortable for a busy day of running around and hustlin. So I was super excited when I found this cute little number for the boutique! It's made of the softest tee-shirt like material and felt like I was wearing my PJ's all day yet looked a LOT chicer! So... basically mission accomplished! 

Classic Trench Coat in Black: $87.00 (Asos)

I love that this dress makes it so easy to pull yourself together in the morning too.  Just pair it with a great pair of flats or pumps, a chic trench and off you go!  Amazing.  It's also one of those pieces that are so classic and will never go out of style so you can wear it again, and again, and again:)  

      
Classic Trench Coat in Camel: $87.00 (Asos)

I am trench coat OBSESSED at the moment- trench coats are the IDEAL jacket for spring/summer and they have such a crisp, pulled-together look that gives an air of sophistication. I love that it's a completely timeless look that will never go out of style. I have a sort of oxblood colored trench coat I bought years ago at Target of all places and I collect compliments on it year after year so definitely a fantastic piece to invest in! Based on this success I'm now looking for a new trench coat and I looked HIGH and LOW and thought for the price and stylishness these ones from Asos were the best bet. If you want to go a little pricier, this one from Macy's also looks fab and comes in a bunch of different colors.

Let's talk about pumps baby: another item I'm always in search of is the perfect pair of pumps! These Steve Madden ones are my current favorite pair and I must say they are surprisingly comfortable, but definitely as I like to say still a "sit and look cute" shoe, rather than a walk around all day shoe if you catch my drift;)

I also think these by Sam Edelman would look really sharp with the dress as an alternative! Red pumps would be fun too. So many options:)


Journee Collection Dorsy Flat: $29.99 (DSW) 

Also love these flats- how cute! These are perfect too:


Cole Haan Elsie Flat: $89.99 (DSW)


And last but not least I'd finish the look off with a classic tote!  This one also comes in ALL the colors so I for one will be stocking up- lol;)


*Also have been on the lookout for the perfect cat-eye sunnies lately and am loving these after trying a bunch! They are seriously cute and stylish AND an AMAZING price too! Scorrrreee:)


Have a great day ladies! 

xoxo,
Emily

La Dolce Vita in Arlington


You guys. I had way too much fun with this one!!! Shot these pics at the LEGENDARY Bronx Pizza in Arlington.  I may or may not travel across town on a (semi) regular basis at the end of a night of fiesta just to get this deliciousness.  It has been called "better than sex."  Not by me.  But it has been said.  If you're in the area just do yourself a favor and go get you some- preferably late at night (it tastes better;)

*As my bestie pointed out this is not exactly how we normally look at the end of the night - hahahaha but hey, you know for the pix;)

I love this dress from Cosita Boutique for a night out when you REALLY want to stun em'!!  It's definitely very curve hugging, so probably eating the pizza at the end of the night rather than the beginning is your best bet lol:)  Definitely an "eat a salad" for dinner type of dress.  But very va-va-voom!  If you need to make a statement and look AMAZING this is the one.  Vibrant true red color, will show off your curves beautifully, and the off-the-shoulder design is so flirty and fun.  It looks perfect paired with simple accessories like a sleek little clutch, your highest stiletto heels, and a great statement earring.

Who is seeing The Godfather in theaters today?!?! (This girl!) 

I love a statement earring with this look - the dress is so dramatic on it's own that you want to keep the other accessories pretty simple and streamlined, but it's good to have some sparkle by your face to draw attention to your smile- especially for date night!:)  I found mine at Ann Taylor awhile ago, but personally I love these and think they would look amazing with this look!!

Happiness is the little things... like great pizza:) ...and shoes:)

I found these sandals at Forever 21 a couple seasons ago, but these would work well too, or these would be amazing if you're feeling extra sassy!

Nom nom nom!

Welcome to Bronx Pizza, may I take ya oh-dah?

Success:)

Hope everyone has a fantastic day today!! And go check out The Godfather if you can, it's so cool to have the chance to see it in theaters!
