Fashion: Summer Party Dress | The Perfect Floral Print Wrap Maxi

 Hello!
 
Between Graduation parties, Wedding season and afternoon lunches with the girls. We all are looking for the perfect dressy casual maxi dress for summertime. So look no further; I've found it!
 
This dress is both a wrap and maxi dress. The blue color is beautiful and the flower print is striking without being over the top. I really love how easy this dress is. Its a dress you can throw on and you have a whole look. Add some cute earrings or a simple necklace and you are good to go. Oh well you might also want to wear some shoes unless your going for a very bohemian look.

Fashion: Casual Girls Lunch | My first Gladiators

Hello!
 
 
 Spring where have you gone? The day before these pictures were taken most of Colorado was experiencing a rather strong spring snow storm. So of course most of my warm coats, boots & scarves had been nicely packed away. Thankfully 48 hours after the initial storm started I was able to then again rock a light , spring outfit. You wouldn't have even known the past 48 hours had been terrible if it wasn't for a few traces of snow and the sad broken tree branches.
 
This outfit made me think of a cute lunch out with your girls or maybe an afternoon date.
 
And yes that is a toiletry pouch I am using for my clutch. If it was good enough for Princess Diana to use as one it's good for this girl too.
 
I am loving these gladiator sandals from Target. They remind me of Valentino's rock studs without having to break the bank. Also I can't believe they are the first gladiators I've ever owned.

Cocktails: Limeaide Margaritas | Happy Cinco de Mayo

Hello!
 
Happy Cinco de Mayo! Maybe you're Mexican , Mexican - American or happen to know someone born of the 5th of May ( Happy Birthday Dad!) then maybe you'll be celebrating the occasion with some Tacos & Tequila.
 
So in celebration of Cinco de Mayo and my Dad's birthday I thought I'd share my go to recipe for Margaritas. They are very simple and a crowd pleaser.
 
 
 


    
Recipe:

Makes 4

Ingredients |

1 Cup Tequila (I use Hornitos)
1/4 Cup Triple Sec
1/2 Can Frozen Limeaide Concentrate
1/2 Cup Water
Ice Cubes
Fresh Lime
Salt

Throw ingredients into  a blender & blend. If you are wanting them a little less strong you can always add less Tequila. Fresh lime wedge & salt to garnish glass. The amount of ice you want depends on how frozen you're wanting your Margarita. Around 1 cup I recommend.


I hope you all have a fantastic Cinco de Mayo.
 
What are your plans? If you make this recipe let me know tag me on Instagram @ChicCountryGirl

Ahh Spring is in the air. Welcome back sandals , ripped jeans & white tops. With a new season brings new choices to your wardrobe. Which what woman doesn't love getting new seasonal pieces?!?!
 
Like this great slouchy white top from TOBI.

Fashion | Stilnest Anna Saccone - Joly Zodiac "Sagittarius" Sign Necklace

Hello!
 
I am back after another long pause in blogging and like I always say in the past I will be back blogging more... I really hope to keep that promise this time.
 
So I am back with something I've wanted to share with you all for months now and just haven't got around to doing so. I've had this piece since around November or a little before and I have worn it almost every day since it arrived. It's my zodiac sign necklace from Anna Saccones collection with Stilnest.
 
This collection was designed by one half of the popular British vlogging couple Anna Saccone of "The Saccone - Joly's." A little story on how the collection came to be:
 
 "One of Anna Saccone’s signature items is her Scorpio star sign necklace. This piece is not only jewellery to her, but a really personal talisman. Anna explains, “Unfortunately I can’t tell you where it’s from because it belonged to my dad before me and I inherited it from him. He was a Scorpio too, I was actually born the day before his birthday… I was his birthday present!”
 
I love how the collection was inspired by a piece of jewelry she inherited from her late father. When it was first released last year I was interested in getting one of the gold charms in my zodiac sign but held off because of the price and not knowing if I'd wear it enough to justify it. But I ended up buying it and loving it. I've worn it nearly nonstop since receiving it last November; I can see it becoming a piece I will love for a long time and even pass on. My baby niece is also a "Sagittarius" so one day I might pass it on to her.
 
Now I am not one of those firm believers in astrology I just like personalized things like this so; I understand if you're like "Zodiac signs are a bunch of BS!" . I just think these necklaces are a beautiful piece of jewelry.
 
 
 
 
 
This necklace comes in 3 different finishes 925 silver, 925 silver rose gold plated, or like mine 925 silver gold plated. And it comes in 3 different chain lengths l (31.5cm) , m (23.5cm) , s (17.5cm).
 
The quality is beautiful! This would make a wonderful gift for anyone. Great idea for a Mothers Day gift, because ladies & gents don't forget about your Mamas it's just around the corner.
 
 While you are there don't forget to look at all the other cool collections Stilnest has to offer.
 
 
I hope you all are having a beautiful Monday afternoon.
 
~Love
Emily

January 2017 Makeup & Beauty Favorites

Hello!
 
Can you believe that January has come and gone already?!? This past month I've branched out and tried a bunch of new products; I figured since it's a new year and I always use the same products month after month that I would go on a hunt for some new things. And I have come to love a lot of them.
 
In late December early January my face had a bad breakout I don't know what happened if it was just a bad time for my skin or maybe all the chocolate and sweets I ate over the holidays or what. So I've been looking for some good and affordable acne products; along with a medium to high coverage foundation to cover up the blemishes.
 
So here are a few of the things I've been loving.
 
 


Neutrogrna Oil-Free Acne Wash | This stuff is a really good face wash. I use it a few times a week since it's a scrub and I have sensitive skin. The only downside are the fine scrub particles; they are hard to get off. So make sure they are all off before applying makeup or going to bed. Available at Walmart or Target
 
O.R.G Skincare Mineral Peel Face | I received this face peel in a FabFitBox; I probably wouldn't have bought it otherwise but now that I have tried it I would order it again for sure. I don't know if it has or hasn't helped with my breakouts or not but it has made my skin feel super soft. Available at O.R.GSkincare.com
 
 
 
 

Marrakesh Hair Oil | I don't overly buy hair products because most of the time I just use a few simple things. But Marrakesh has some amazing hair products. This oil is amazing. It makes your hair feel and look amazing and not only that it smells wonderful. I use it on slightly damp hair and then blow dry it. Available at Marrakeshhaircare.com
 
Urban Decay All nighter Spray | I've been looking for a primer or setting spray to help keep my makeup looking flawless. Having been a huge UD fan for years I thought why not give this a try. And so I did, it's amazing. I'm obsessed with this stuff. I thought I'd only use it on nights out and special occasions but it makes my makeup look so nice that I use it everyday. Available at Sephora or Ulta
 


Maybelline Dream Velvet Foundation | This stuff is incredible! The texture and application is great. It has medium to full coverage. And feels great on my skin. I've been using this foundation for almost a month and it's amazing. I think I've finally found the perfect foundation. Available at Walmart or Target
 
Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer | The beauty community has raved about this product since it came out but since it says age rewind I guess I just never really thought about it. It never hurts to start using age rewinding products and recently I've been fighting dark circles due to lack of good sleep; and this stuff has been a life saver. It's a must under eye concealer. Available at Walmart or Target
 
Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick | My favorite lipsticks are liquid lipsticks. They last amazingly and don't smudge like regular lipsticks. So when I received this beautiful lipstick as a gift from my cousin I was so excited. I've heard many good things about Anastasia but never used anything from the brand. This color is called Sad Girl, It's a metallic black cherry. It has shimmer and sparkle! It's the prettiest color and finish of a lipstick I've ever seen. Available at Sephora
 


 
 
So that's what I've been loving this month. I hope you maybe found some new products to give a try. This year I want to try more things instead of sticking to the same things all the time. Hopefully this will be a new feature on my blog and I hope it's something you all like.
 
What are your favorites from this month?
 

 

 
~Love

Fashion: Military Inspired Winter Outfit Of The Day | Kenneth Cole & Burberry

Hello! Lovelies
 
 
The cold has finally hit hard here in Colorado; so that means bring out the wool! Wool hat,'s scarves and my favorite winter coats.
 
I've been rocking this beautiful Kenneth Cole coat that I found at a thrift shop for under $10 a couple years back. I love pairing this coat with many different styles and dressing it up or down. For this outfit I was feeling Army inspired; with the cut of the coat and the beautiful green color, it paired great with my black combat boots.
 
 



 
I love that this outfit features high end designer pieces and low end things from places like Target and Kohl's. You don't need a ton of money to make a great outfit.
 
Coat:
Kenneth Cole - Old  (Similar style, different brand at Macy's.)
