weekend wear 06

So I’ll admit, this outfit isn’t actually from this weekend it’s from the weekend before when I was ALL about this hat.  This may seem silly to you because it’s pretty casual but this might be my favorite outfit I’ve worn in a long time! Probably helps that my hair is styled differently than normal but I just really like that I wore a button-down opened and pulled it off. I’m the type that would wear a dress every day because it’s easy and always envied girls that were good at layering so when I do pull off a layered look, I’m stoked! I wore this to hang around Decatur after our Labor Day horse back riding trip was cancelled due to rain and a muddy trail. *I was going to wear jeans, NOT this skirt! We decided not to waste the day and go have some drinks and see where that took us. We started at Java Monkey then went to Brick Store and then met up with friends at Kimball House. Turned out to be a beautifully HOT day of silliness, oysters and many’a drinks.

Wearing- Gap tank, UO button down, Free People skirt, Clarks desert boots, Madewell tote and H&M hat.

Dustin’s drink at Kimball House, the ‘sun viking’ consisting of junipero gin, krogstad aquavit, dill, lemon, fino sherry. Got a little sip, not only pretty but also tasty!

One of the reasons I don’t have an outfit post from this previous weekend is because I was mostly in athletic gear as we had a yard sale all day on Saturday! It went really well and I was happy to see my stuff go to new homes. Afterwards I donated the stuff that didn’t sell to Goodwill and was surprisingly still ok to say goodbye. I feel like the older I’ve gotten the more I want to simplify my home space, so this is the start to living clutter free!

Hope your week is off to a great start!

ONE HAT, TWO DAYS

15124915521_b97d87860a_k
I’ve had this H&M hat for a few years now. Guess it goes to show that if you take care of cheaper stores’ products they can actually last! I wore it last week when I hosted a wine party at my home’s atrium and wore it again when I had lunch with some friends in Grant Park. 14941346188_d2f7698d38_k
The wine party was part of our monthly vino club which almost every time has a theme. The theme wasn’t a dress code but rather all things picnic.  Almost every lady brought a picnic blanket so we had a huge patchwork area to sit! I got pre-occupied by food and wine and chatting and never took a good photo of ALL the food-there was a ton! Only thing I snapped was this cute cheese and champagne grape plate brought by Harmony.

Wearing a C&C California romper,  H&M hat, Birkenstocks, Madewell necklace

This was my first time experimenting with live garland. I followed a simple online tutorial that uses a leafy green. The instructions were to alternate overlapping and wire every 4-6 inches with floral wire-so easy! If I were doing it for say, my wedding, I’d definitely use a thicker plant or layer a lot more.

Saturday after lunch we walked over to Oakland Cemetery before the blazing heat ran us off. Then went home and chilled out, napped and then went out to Dragon Con.  I put together a very last minute costume of a vintage sailor romper and gold crescent moons painted on my face for a “sailor moon” outfit-silly but it did the trick!

Wearing an Urban Outfitters top, Free People shorts, Kenzie sandals, Madewell bag, TOMS sunglasses, H&M hat and Golden Stella necklace.

I popped into Free People to see if they had any Labor Day sale and they did! Got an extra 20% off sale and scored these high-waisted lace shorts for less than $20!

We did some work around the house, made breakfast everyday and hung out with friends. Though we didn’t leave town for the long weekend like we originally planned-it was a nice holiday spent in Atlanta!

Another new-to-me dress I picked up from selling/trading in clothes at Buffalo Exchange. Loving its African fabric vibes. This dress will be great for this season but is also light enough to wear in warmer temperatures with strappy sandals.

This day was awesome. Hung out in Lil5 with Dustin, sold some clothes to Rag-o-Rama and picked up a second-hand maxi dress from Anthro and a kids XL skeleton sweatshirt I’m going to wear for this weekends Halloween parade, ate burritos at El Myr and then went to The Naked & Famous show at the Tabernacle and.it.RULED. I would say it doesn’t get much better but it seems that it can and does, life is good!

HAPPY HUMPDAY!

LE CAPE

here it is, the aforementioned CAPE! been wearing this guy as much as possible before Georgia does the usual skipping of Spring and moves directly into blazing heat. haven’t worn it with anything but skinny jeans as of yet but need to quickly experiment before it’s packed away.

unlike the cape these Sam Edelman fringe ankle boots can be worn in all seasons. been wearing them since November and I see them being paired with dresses come Summer time!

Rustic City

surplus
as I previously mentioned I wanted to show you my “version”of the rustic city gal trend that’s been circulating around for some time now. all of these pieces I wear independently as well as together to complete the look. out of this particular outfit, my favorite component is the parka having had to search for the right one for a while then ended up finding mine at H&M, I’m very pleased with my bargain! the lightweight fabric is great for layering in the colder months and will be perfect for a standalone jacket in the Spring.

these photos were shot by my lovely boyfriend at his lake house in Macon, GA. recently the community opened the nearby dam in order to lower the lake water level allowing for dock maintenance so the lake is abnormally low. I’m standing on land that is usually under water! did some exploring around the new “shore” and found deer tracks, fresh water clam shells, drift wood and neat stones.

this same afternoon after grabbing materials for the Moveable Feast dinner and party this upcoming Sunday (click on title to be directed to Highland Ballroom information and ticketing page!) we headed to town for a beer and to enjoy outdoor seating on an oddly warm January day.
