Cute Casual Weekend Vibes


Happy FRIDAY everybody!!! Omggg I am SO READY for this long weekend! YESSS!!!  Wishing everybody a very fun, very relaxing holiday weekend with friends and family:)  I personally am looking forward to getting cozy and comfy all weekend and catching up on some flicks, books, and girl time since it's supposed to be kinda rainy in DC.  I'm also looking forward to rocking a look just like this one all weekend long- comfy, cozy and perfect for a weekend full of nothing but chill time!:)  


OK OK so as you can see I had way too much fun at the fire station the other weekend- lol there's something about a fire station that just brings out the little kid in me!  Don't you just want to climb on the truck, slide down the pole - put on the hats?!  Is that just me?!?  Oh and there's cute firefighters there so.. obvi;)  Lolllll:)


Big shout out to the Alexandria Fire Department!!! Thanks for not kicking this firehouse-loving fashionista out hahaha:)


I love a cute little pop of red to turn this outfit up a notch.  It's always a fun challenge to make a reallllly casual outfit look chic, and I think this hits all the right notes- the top is super soft and stretchy, awesome for the weekend.  A distressed jean is my favorite for my off time, and a cute pair of flat sandals are always my go-to for summer days when I'm running around and heels just won't cut it (even for me- and I'm a 4 inch heels every day kinda gal!)  I love the little gold detail on these delicate thong sandals because it dresses up the look just a touch, as does the purse.  For me that's cute-casual done juuust right:) *I found these sandals recently at T.J. Maxx, but these have a similar feel.



Hope everybody has a FABULOUS holiday weekend!  Thank you SO SO SO SO much to all of our service men and women for protecting our freedoms!  We love and appreciate you!

Big hug,
Emily xoxo

Red Hot in Alexandria


Heyyy ladies!  I'm featuring one of my absolute FAVORITE dresses from the boutique today:)  This dress is hot hot hot in the cutest, classiest way!  It's a chic and sassy little choice for a summer work dress, and dressy and fun enough to transition to a lunch date or after-work drinks.  


Add simple, classic accessories and you're out the door looking chic in no time flat - the best!:)  P.S. How great are these sunglasses- so affordable and super cute! Our lil secret lol;)  *Personally I always break or lose my sunglasses so it's definitely a save vs. splurge area for me!  I got this bag last summer from Aldo, but this one is almost identical.


This dress is also super comfy and wow it really holds up! I've worn mine a million times and it looks exactly the same as the first day I got it!  *Another cool thing about this dress is that it can work all. year. round!!!  Pair it with black pumps and a white or black blazer in the fall/winter, or pair it with lighter-colored accessories in the spring/summer as shown here!  That's what I call a wardrobe workhorse!! Literally one of my STUNNING coworkers bought this dress and wore it to our holiday party in December, and I'm going to wear mine all summer long!:) Win winnn!:)
   
(Had to;)

Alexandria I'm obsessed with you. Why you so cute?!?

Have a great day errbody! 

Lots of love,
Emily xoxo

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!
