From the second I saw this at the Westside Anthropologie store it spoke to me! I love me some one-piece clothes but this was different. The width of the leg, the open back, a must have! Wore it out for a date night to celebrate the closing of our first home! Felt like a sexy bohemian that ran a dojo in her spare time. ha!
So yes, we closed on a house. A beautiful 3 bedroom 2 bathroom house in Westside Atlanta. Dangerously close to really great shopping and several taco options. We are so pumped! Move in date isn’t until end of September and since our lease ended, we’re floating. Been house-sitting, house-crashing but no couch surfing YET. Our friends have helped us out trememndously. Thanks guys and gals!
In the 2 months we’re bouncing around we’re taking trips and making it the most fun possible. We finally pulled the trigger on a big trip we’ve been going back and forth on, GREECE! I turned 30 in March and Dustin turns 30 over Labor Day weekend and with our 1 year anniversary coming up we decided it was a must! We scored big time on plane tickets-2 round trip tickets to Athens, 1 stop in Germany for 1 hour was $1,068.00-a deal we couldn’t miss out on!!!
Speaking of living it up, I’m currently in LA visiting my girl friend Courtney till Monday! Already seen Shaun Ross and Pauly Shore, I’d say it’s off to a Hollywood sight seeing trip so far! Tomorrow we’re hitting up Palm Springs so follow along on Snap or Instagram for all the behind the scenes or come back for a full recap!
Have a good week + weekend, see you on all the other apps!
Lately I’ve been obsessed with sleeves that have open or off-the-shoulder detail. It started with my wedding dress and now has over taken my closet! Funny thing is, I feel like my shoulders have always been very broad so you would think it would accentuate that feature and make me feel too wide but in reality it’s flattering.
This is the outfit I wore to Monday’s Herradura Tequila event. Thanks to Jessica Camerata of My Style Vita for snapping these pics in 95 degrees of Georgia heat (+ 100% humidity *probably..) before we got tipsy!
Tomorrow we are off to Chicago! It’s my first time going and we have a lot planned. Expect a huge recap next week. Until then, safe travels/firework lighting/booze drinking/lake floating/family hanging~HAPPY FORTH!
We have a packed schedule! Goes something like this: The High Museum tonight, tomorrow going glasses shopping (yep, found out I have astigmatism and need specs) followed by snapping a surprise proposal, then Sunday we are going to Oysterfest and an Oscars party.
So ready to get it started!
This outfit has been on repeat in various combinations. In case you didn’t know, all about comfort!
Details: Madewell under shirt, jeans, purse and hat / Penfield jacket / Gap sweater / Chuck Taylor hightops
Friday I took off work to do lots of pre-wedding things like finalizing the menu (which includes fancy shrimp+grits, cause-duh!), going through the timeline, picking out jewelry (hello sapphires!) and trying to nail down a cake (which didn’t go as planned in the least bit!)
To run around I wanted to dress chic but comfy for all the errands and car riding so I wore these new slacks I picked up at Nordstrom Rack (under $25!) and my favorite white tee from Target (love it so much I bought it twice in case one gets ruined) with new wedges from Shopbop by Matt Bernson along with pieces that are on constant rotation~
This Free People necklace spices any’ole plain tee right up! Other accessories include my very worn out Kate Spade shades, FP bra and Madewell tote.
Next post is a fun shoot featuring items from Williams-Sonoma and I’m really really REALLY excited to share it with yall – come back and see on Thursday!
My love for vintage extends to music. Back in the day when I was avidly thrifting, before I even owned a record player, I would buy records by artists I grew up listening to and frame them and collected mostly for the album art. Then in 2003, at a yard sale I found a mint condition 1955 record player with speakers and from then on would thumb through the piles at thrift shops and yard sales. Some time later I broke the needle and didn’t bother replacing but kept collecting here and there.
Not long after Dustin and I started dating he took interest in my collection and bought us a modern record player to actually take advantage of all the music I was using as decor. Now, it’s become our hobby! We love the slow-paced afternoons and evenings just hanging around the house, sipping a homemade drink or my favorite chardonnay and listening to the crackly sound of a Lynyrd Skynyrd album. We’ve also purchased new music on vinyl like his favorite Blink 182 and our favorite St. Lucia and Alabama Shakes.
People either laugh at young adults listening to vinyl with apps like Pandora and Spotify (both of which we use very often) or they appreciate it.
On Saturday when we went to Highland Row Antiques and perused the vinyl for sale we met an older gentlemen that thought it was great we were into records. He’s also a collector but to a much higher degree than we are, completing artist’s box sets. One of these days I’m sure we’ll get into the hunt of finding that one record we’re missing in a set, but for now it’s just fun!
This is the record player we bought off Amazon. Super easy to use, press start and it automatically does the needle for you and press stop and same thing, needle goes back to the holder. It’s been great! Even holds Flynn who’s decided to make it his perch for looking out the window and with the plastic cover it prevents dust and cat fur from getting in. We’ve recommended to two friends who’ve purchased and loved. Find the additional items you’ll need to enjoy tunes here, here and here.
