Wearing a blouse, heels, and a pencil skirt always makes me feel sophisticated. I received this lovely blouse from Sammy Dress to review. The print is absolutely gorgeous! It reminds me of China Town. Such a vibrant and fun print! I paired it with a pencil skirt and sandals. It's a little small on me, especially in the hips and bust area. However, that is the chance you take when ordering online. The material is soft and of good quality. The fabric is not thin by any means, which I was pleasantly surprised with!
They shipped the blouse quite fast and I received it within 2-3 weeks. Not bad coming from China! If you are curvy like me, I suggest ordering a size up on this one!
If you are not familiar with Sammy Dress, they are an online retailer that sells clothing and accessories for inexpensive prices. You are looking at dresses for about $20 and blouses for as low as $10! The website is easy to navigate too, and the pictures of the products are well photographed.
If you sign up on Sammy Dress too you can get 10% off your first order! Free shipping worldwide as well.
Have you shopped on Sammy Dress before? Hope you are having a great week!

For Easter dinner we eat at Frenchy's Outpost Bar and Grill. We were quite impressed with the atmosphere and quality of the food. We loved that it was all outside as well! There was also a live band playing, which was really nice to listen to for dinner.
I had the Key west Mahi Mahi (covered in sour cream and parmesan) with coconut rice, and corn on the cob. Ryan had a chicken pita with tropical fruit. It was quite delicious! We totally recommend this restaurant for those that are visiting this area!
I decided to wear my new yellow lace shift dress with my Tory Burch flats, and my new baublebar necklace. The color was just perfect for Easter time. I love the combination of yellow and blue, one of the best color blocking colors in my opinion.
What did you wear for Easter? Hope you had a great holiday!

For Easter weekend we decided to go to Clearwater Beach, Florida for a fun beach getaway. I had three days off of work so it was the perfect opportunity. The weather hasn't cooperated with us too much though. Our first day it was rainy and cold so we did a little shopping at International Plaza and had a scrumptious breakfast at Perkins. I bought some cute items at JCrew and Sperry Topsider. I also bought some things online at JCrew Factory!
Back to today though, we had a lot of fun. We found out about this dog park on Honeymoon Island and brought Fred along to share the fun! By the way, this is Fred's first vacation with us! He has been such a good boy and quite loves going on vacation. I think we have created a monster here- haha. If you are vacationing in the area and bringing your furbaby, this is a great beach. There are endless beaches to venture and walk onto. The water is really calm too, so your dogs will love swimming in it! Fred did not like the water, he thought it was too chilly. But I am sure as summer comes nearer, the water will be warmer.
Speaking of dog friendly places, we stayed at the Best Western Plus- Harbor Inn. The staff was very accommodating and friendly! They do charge extra for your dog to stay with you though, just for your information! Great hotel and the room was spacious and very nice. Very much recommend!
We were only were at the beach for a couple hours before more clouds headed in and it started to get really windy/cold. So we headed back to the hotel to relax. We then went to a lovely restaurant by the water. I will share pictures of that tomorrow!
Also enjoy the video of Fred! I think this is the first time many of you heard my voice- haha. Though, I am kind of speaking in a cute voice to Fred here- hehe.
If you want to see more pictures of my vacation, please make sure to follow my Instagram! :)
Happy Easter and hope you all had a wonderful weekend! :)

Emma looks chic and sophisticated coming off the airplane. She also looks comfortable despite how dressy the outfit looks! My look to the right proves that you can look chic and fashionable while not breaking the bank. There are endless options on saving money at stores these days. For example, many stores are selling their coats and outerwear at deep discounts right now, so this is the perfect time to find one. Especially with this weekend being Easter, sales will be all over the place! Sales are the perfect time to stock up on essentials like the white blouse above. I love Express for their blouses and t-shirts. They are so soft and silky! As always, Forever21 never fails on getting the latest trends for less.
If you would like to wear this during the evening, just throw on a statement necklace and pumps. Your set to go!
What do you think of Emma's look?
This season, pastels are a major trend. Spring is the perfect time to bring out that light pink, yellow, or mint colored garment. Easter is just around the corner as well, which is another perfect opportunity to sport the pastel trend.
Pastels should be worn with neutral colored clothing. It helps balance everything out. I would wear a white dress with the pink Cambridge satchel. Wear a beige button down shirt with the mint green jeans. Pull out those white skinny jeans and pair it with a sweatshirt like the one above. If you're planning to wear a pastel dress, wear nude heels and gold accessories.
Pastels can brighten up the whole look, and if you have a tan, it will help enhance it! Just remember, if you have very pale skin, look for darker pastel shades as it will make you even look more pale. We don't want that!
How do you like to incorporate pastels in your wardrobe?
