On Saturday, my good friend Emily and I went to check out a new café in Del Ray called Emma’s Espresso and Wine Bar. While the food was good but not knock-your-socks-off, the décor of the cafe was absolutely perfect. It had a Victorian feel with the silhouette logo and metal deer heads over the cozy fireplace, but I also loved how clean and simple the space was: black and white with silver dining tables and marble countertops. I can definitely see myself going there to meet friends or to sit and read and work on my computer.
I found this maxi dress on sale at Old Navy for $17, and I absolutely love it! With the ribbon tie, it works for maternity as well as afterwards, and it is perfect for this hot summer we’re having in DC. I paired it with two pieces of jewelry that matched the light blue geometric print perfectly- an Alex and Ani bracelet (I love this specific one because it helps support a Christian organization dedicated to clean drinking water in developing countries) and a beautiful necklace my mother-in-law bought me for Christmas.
