Hot Pink + Chartreuse

As if it isn’t already obvious, hot pink is one of my favorite colors.

This spring my wardrobe will be made up of neons, sorbet brights, black/white, navy, and more neons.

If I could give one piece of advice, it would be to embrace color. Even if it is just a hot pink sweater – or a bright yellow belt, embrace it. You won't regret.

Now, lets talk affordability. 
Here's my outfit breakdown (the price is what I paid): 
Flats {Me Too,E-Bay}
Bag: $34.99 {no joke.}
Necklace: $10.80

Hope everyone is having a good week! I will be posting a fun look tomorrow as well as a weekend update!

Valentine's #3

3 years ago yesterday John sent me this text!
At the time we had been best friends for over a year. We were in two different states, Skype’ing often, totally into another, and I was wondering if we’d ever get together! Fortunately, the week prior to Valentine’s we finally made our relationship official! I remember getting excited when I saw this text. John didn’t have an iPhone at the time so I had to screenshot all of my emojies and text it as a picture. Anyway, to this day, it is still on my phone! Lol. I don’t know that I’ll ever delete it. Clearly, I was thrilled to be his Valentine and I’ve only become more thrilled as the years have passed by!
Last night, we really didn’t plan on doing anything. In fact, I was going to attend Zumba – but towards the end of the day I realized it was important to spend our first Valentines as a married couple together.
I rushed home (in my Zumba ponytail) and we got ready and walked down the street to one of our favorite spots for dinner. Very low key, per usual. With our busy schedules, we have learned to appreciate the little bit of time we actually get to spend together.
My V’Day get-up!

Our Weekend

Phew! The first surgery rotation is complete. We celebrated that & John’s birthday this weekend by spending Saturday together. I work every Saturday and John is usually working or studying so it was wonderful having a day dedicated to spending with one another.
Saturday morning I got some of the best, most exciting news! 
One of my best friends from college, Paige, got engaged on Friday night. I don’t know that I’ve ever been more thrilled about an engagement before in my life! 
Paige is a one-in-a-million.  
Not to brag or be cliché, but she really is a rare jewel.
Her wisdom, advice, character, style, & smarts have changed my life in so many ways. Paige positively impacts everyone who comes in contact with her, I've watched it happen time and time again! I’ve learned so much from her in the last 4 years of our special friendship. And not to mention, she facilitated John & myself getting together! 
When I met her fiancé, Zach, I was hooked!
 In November they drove through and stopped to have breakfast with us (I had yet to meet this Zach fellow!) Paige left the table and Zach stopped eating and looked at me and said “is this the part where you grill me?” It made me giggle because in the first few minutes of being around him I knew I was going to love him! He's a no-grill-necessary type of guy.
Here are some photos from their weekend...  
Check out that ring!!! Attaboy Zachy!

In other news, here are some photos from our weekend! We went to Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg/Knoxville, just taking in all we can of this area before we move away. 
Not a fan of this deal.
After church bagel trip!
Happy Monday!
In preparation for my Virtual Posh Party tomorrow night, I am spending the day adding more to my Poshmark Closet! My party theme is "Everyday Glamour" I hope everyone will join me! 
(p.s. have I mentioned that I have sold over $500 worth of pre-loved clothing in the last 2 weeks?)

Checks + Dots

Outfit Details: Sweater || Shirt ($15 in store!) || Pants || Shoes (c/o) || Bag
When OASAP sent me these adorable shoes… Icouldn’t believe it!
Not only are they adorable – they are comfortable!

Unfortunatly, my size was not available so I ordered a size down and these didn't fit too well. But, on a better note, they have a new owner! I listed them on Poshmark and they sold very quickly!
Speaking of, my username isemilyanngemma & I’ve been invited to host a Posh Party on February 12th– I hope you will be there!

Bows Belong Every{Wear]

If it’s not already obvious enough, I believebows belong every{wear}!

On your toes, on your fingers, on your blog, & on yourHEAD!

Lemons & Lace sent me their beloved “BreakfastAt Tiffany’s” headband and holy smokes… it's beautiful! I want one in every color.

If you looked through our Honeymoon photos youprobably noticed that headbands are a must for me when at the beach! Not only are they functional, they act as an accessory whenyou don’t have much else on!

John & I both had the day off & churchwas cancelled due to the snow storm (3rd weekend in a row of snow!)so we ventured down for soup & bagels, per usual.
If you plan on going somewhere special forspring break… you’ve got to get your paws on a few of these babies to matchyour swimsuits!

I’ll be packing mine for a trip to Disney Worldto ensure that my bangs stay out of my face, stylishly. I’m sure I’ll be sportingthis headband often in a few different ways… I’ll make sure and share them withyou!

Until then, follow Lemons & Lace onInstagram: @lemonsandlace
