spring weekend?

I don't know if I've ever felt this way about winter, but January is flying by.  Is it seriously halfway over this weekend?

Even though there are about a million (for real) things I'm looking forward to from now until spring, and I'm certainly not wishing the time away, these spring things have me smitten.

Would it be inappropriate to wear a sundress out this weekend?


There are certain things I wish for when it comes to retail.

For example, I wish that Apple would make clothing, because I think it would be both cute and sleek. Kind of like my adorable little MacBook. Sometimes, I think it's so nice looking, I wish I had a MacBook skirt.

Or that J.Crew would make some of their Crew Cuts items for their regular line. Can you really blame me for loving the Glow and Tell look?

One of my wishes has come true with the new clothing line for EmersonMade. I have had a major crush on their merchandise for a while now, and I always thought items like the Sunny Day clutch would translate very nicely into a dress.

And ta da! They have officially launched a clothing line, EM. The line is simple, feminine, and a little bit retro. And, of course, almost everything they have would look adorable with their poppy and dahlia pins too.


People - especially girls - have a tendency to overuse the exclamation point. And while I certainly get a little carried away in text messages and emails because I worry my emotions will be lost in translation, it's a pet peeve of mine when they're overused elsewhere.

The exclamation point is unnecessary in professional writing because sufficient description does the job more effectively. If you want me to be excited about something, make me excited with your words. Tell me how amazing the XXX will be, or how beautiful the XXX is, or why this XXX is the best. And through your amazing description, I too, will be excited.

However, my recent discovery of Emersonmade made me rethink my distaste. Instead of having The Big Poppy section, they have The Big Poppy! That exclamation point made me so excited about their big poppy. How big is it? How bright is it? Does it smell good too?

And aren't The Littler Roses! just so adorable? And don't you just want to put flowers in your hair!? I want to click on everything (!!).
