EMERALD AUGUST + A GIVEAWAY (closed)


Last week my friend Laura came over and we had a "fashion show" with Matilda in my Dad's back yard. Laura designs a children's clothing line that we just love: Emerald August. Her designs are made in the USA and Matilda was the luckiest girl to get to play dress up with her spring collection.

I love her color choices: bright orange, turquise, cherry red, lime green, pale and poppy pinks. Her clothes emulate the spirit and fun of childhood. She has a great selection of tunics, graphic tees, play dresses, and little shorts. All pieces available in sizes 2 through 8.

I might have bribed Matilda a wee tiny bit with these organic strawberry suckers. She loves them. Here she is wearing Laura's signature tunic in both the sleeveless tangerine and pomegranate. I love the tiny buttons and the piping around the neck and sleeves. They can be preppy and clean or funky paired with fun accessories (we are loving rain boots these days).

We had a little tea party. Matilda loves to host and she made the most delicious "cramberlberry" tea. That girl loves to create and do. Our days are pretty busy around here. We laid out the picnic blanket in this side garden. It is SO beautiful here.

When I was in high school I would always do my friends hair and makeup and have photoshoots. There are some awesome photos of my friends and family floating around. I thought I wanted to be a makeup artist for a while. Still think it's so fun but I'm not a big makeup wearer myself. Funny, huh? Here Matilda is in the cherry tunic. That little lady just makes me smile.

One of my favorite pieces in this group is this ice cream cone tee. Amazing, right? Hip and sweet and the colors are so great. Matilda's a fan too (of both ice cream and this shirt). Love it paired with the lime green shorts. These shorts are not only great with tees but under any of your favorite dresses. Perfect for the playground and keeping those undies hidden.

We ran down to the barn to snap a few pictures of Laura's tees. Matilda went missing for a minute, but don't worry we found her (so many good hiding places around here!). That blueberry tee is awesome and so are the others (cow + red balloon = win).

Laura ended up scooping up a tired model at the end of the shoot. We just love her. Laura is the type of friend that shows up with amazing homemade food every time she comes over, always has a kind word, looks out for everyone, and is just a dear person that I feel lucky to call a friend. She has worked so hard on her collection and I am thrilled to be able to introduce you all to Emerald August!

Now, here comes the really fun part. Laura is graciously giving away an awesome group of Emerald August goodies to one lucky winner. Your choice of tunic or every day dress + one tee + one pair of shorts. Here are a few of my favorites! You'll be all set for summer. PLUS Laura is offering a 15% off (shipping is always free) to all of you with promo code: LESLEYWGRAHAM.
