Orange Crush

Hi Ladies!! Today I'm featuring one of my FAVORITE new dresses from Cosita Boutique.  This dress has quickly become a wardrobe go-to that I find myself wanting to wear again, and again and again:)  You know it's a good pick when you keep thinking, ok I want to wear this but when was the last time I wore it- you know what I mean!! Lol;)  No, seriously though this dress checks all the boxes for me: comfortable, cute, pretty, flattering color, great fit, and COMFORTABLE!  Love that!!  It's a little stretchy so it molds perfectly to your body, allows you to move easily throughout the day, and of course the wrap dress is every woman's best friend!! SO. Figure. Flattering. !!!  I took this baby for a lil jaunt over in Old Town, Alexandria the past weekend here's what we got up to... lol;)

How cute is this building?!?!  I love Alexandria so much.  Adorable!

You know just a perfect glamorous, chillin on the porch dress;) #wokeuplike this - lol not really j/k j/k;)

Such a cute dress! Perrrrfect for summer.  Literally throw it on with some cute pumps and a tote and you're out the door lookin' fine!:)

Hope everyone has an awesome day today!

Lime Time!

Happy Friday!!!!!!!  So it's Friday annnnd it's one of my favorite holidays today - because, margaritas, obviously;)  In honor of Margarita Christmas I'm featuring the prettiest lime green dress we have in the boutique:)  You guys this is SUCH a gorgeous dress in person- it's one of my absolute favorites and literally every time I wear it I get so many compliments on the color!  It's the brightest, most cheerful lime green and it just makes you happy:)  

I wear this to work exactly as pictured with fun blue pumps and accessories that really set off the lime green.  It's a perfect combo- trust me!  These blue pumps are a WINNER- I got them years ago from Marshall's and I wear them all. the. time. You'd be surprised how much a blue shoe can go with!  These are a similar color and I think would look awesome with the dress too.

A light, perforated tote in crisp white is another great style staple for summer that goes with everything!  I absolutely adore mine and use it all the time for work (it's great for the weekend too.)  I got mine last summer from DSW, but this one is almost identical.

The earrings and cute little bracelet I'm wearing here are from Cosita Boutique too.  They're not up on the website yet, but if you're interested in them just message me:)

I bought these sunglasses in Charleston, almost returned them, and wowww I'm happy I didn't because I've been wearing them nonstop!  They're perfect for summer:)  These are a great price and very similar!

Hope everyone has a wonderful Friday and weekend ahead!  For me personally, I'll BRB - gotta go find a margarita ASAP;)

Cheers! Em xoxo

Sweet Tart

Y'all I am LOVING this gorgeous spring weather we've been having! Oh. my. goodness it is literally giving me life!!!  Just in time for Gold Cup this Sunday and let's pray the sun holds out!!  For my ladies attending the VA Gold Cup this year have you planned your outfits yet?  I feel like I always overthink it and then it ends up raining anyway and I really wish I wore jeans and rainboots - lolll;) But I love to dress up and any event that encourages that I am all about.  We have so many cute summer sundresses in the boutique that would all work perfectly for a horse race, polo, bridal shower/baby shower or really any classy summer affair!  

We checked out Hen Quarter in Alexandria this weekend and it was SO adorable!  I will definitely be back.  Such a sweet little spot for brunchin' and relaxin' and they were really really nice there too so there's that:)

I am loving this dress for Gold Cup because it's light and breezy and comfy yet really ladylike, fun and chic.  Sometimes it can be so hot and you want a sundress that's light and airy - this is the one!  ...And it's so cute with these shoes!!!  I love a fun colorful shoe to make an outfit pop.  These are a recent find from my fave Ross (seriously they have the cutest shoes go check it out.)  This little Aldo clutch is awesome too.  As I mentioned in this post Aldo is a great spot to find cute little clutches at a reasonable price. 

So this was called a "peach mimosa" which was a lil' confusing because isn't that a bellini??  Anyway it was SO GOOD! Go get one!! Highly highly recommend. A lil' sweet and a lil' tart (as you can see above) - just the way I like it!:)

To complete the look I'm obsessed with jean jackets for summer- they're just so casual, chic, and oh- COMFORTABLE!  It's always good to have an extra layer in case it gets breezy.  I've had this one from H&M for a million years and it's still a go-to.
