Who’s ready for the weekend?! *raises hand

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!

weekend wear 01

14058743414_abdcb73faf_bWeekend Recap:

Friday evening was date night for Dustin and I at a new spot in town called Sweet Auburn Barbecue in the Highlands.  We had heard it was a must visit from so many friends so we wanted to give it a go. I knew I’d like it right off the bat after walking in and spotting rustic decor and a vintage American flag. We each ordered a specialty cocktail and meat platter for dinner consisting of BBQ pulled pork and sides. I got the Sweet Water 420 baked beans and mac-n-cheese he got the grits and brussel sprouts. We were blown away! Seriously.  The baked beans were my favorite part, they had the perfect amount of added bacon.  We were so full after devouring we couldn’t fathom getting dessert, that was until we were literally convinced by a neighbor at our communal table to try the banana pudding-so we made room and were glad we did!  As any Southern dessert should, the yummy dessert was served in a cute little mason jar.

Then on Saturday I went out to Arabia Mountain with a local singer songwriter named Sydney Ward to shoot photos for a soon to launch website called “I Spy Atl.” Sydney and I both squealed many times with joy over how the photos looked in-camera, I’m super excited to share with launch. More details on ISPYATL coming soon! That night we went to Dustin’s cousin’s house in Cumming, GA where we hung and grilled out and played with their 6-month old twin boys. Needed a low key night after hiking and getting partially sun-burnt for sure!

Sunday we went to the Braves game with Dustin’s family and a friend. The game was slow but we enjoyed conversation, beers and brats. At the end of the game a crazy storm rolled through and even though we ran to the car, which was parked far away from the stadium, we got drenched. Dustin had my purse (which contained my camera) tucked under his arms trying to keep it dry while I was running and laugh-screaming. My camera was unharmed and we had many good laughs, love silly memories like these!!

If you experienced any of the scary weather or tornadoes last night I sincerely hope you and your loved ones are ok! My two biggest fears are sharks and tornadoes, so you can imagine how high-strung I was this morning at 6:00am when our power went out and wind was sucking my blinds up against the window. The weather seems to be better but watching the forecast like a hawk.

Have a pleasant rest of the week!

Before even trying on this jacket at H&M I knew it was going to be mine.  The contrasting sleeves and hip approach to a trench, it was a “DUH I’m SO buying this” moment!  It’s also much warmer than I thought and there’s still room in it for layering, best $50 I’ve spent this Fall/Winter!

OVER ALL

after a fun filled weekend spent in Melbourne Florida with my folks I’ve returned back to the grey skies of ATL and plunged right back into the “real world” of work and house chores. it was really great to get in beach and pool times since it hasn’t felt like summer here at all. two of the days we went offshore deep sea fishing and had a blast catching snapper, amber jack, bonita, shark, and other little guys we didn’t keep. it was Dustin’s first time going deep sea fishing but you wouldn’t have known it since he caught on so quickly and manhandled monster fish from the depths of the ocean! it was so fun watching him reel in fish and help my dad with the boat duties, needless to say, the meeting of the parents and traveling together for the first time went great!
as I mentioned previously, there are more photos from my Grant Park adventure with Betsy I’d like to share. on a recent visit to the Anthropologie on Howell Mill I scored a denim jumper for a mind-blowing $34! I’ve mostly styled it casually but thinking some leather wedges would also compliment this garment nicely.

since these photos were taken my hair has already gone through some color change. the ombre has actually gotten lighter as the toner has subtly faded-I suppose this is from salt water, chlorine and SUN. I’m loving it even more! though I need a hair cut pretty badly I’m thinking I’ll hold off for a bit and see what the color does before snipping away any length.

speaking of deals, on our last day in FL we hit up the Orlando outlets where I got some really great pieces from Loft, Forever 21, 7 for all Mankind and Banana Republic. excited to style them up and share here on the blog!

hoping you have a good week!

Youthful & Free

Sunday, Jezebel Magazine in partnership with the BB&T Atlanta Open hosted a party in conjunction with their most recent issue that highlights Atlanta’s Top 100 restaurants. I attended with the hopes of capturing some “Best Dressed” pics and since that was easy peasy as there were lots of well-dressed Atlantans in attendance, I was then able to partake in the tasty food and play in the photobooth! here’s what I wore:

Dress c/o Free People, Necklace c/o Free People, Cynthia Rowley purse, vintage cuff, rings By Phillip

Dustin and I thought the front of this dress looks like an owl, can you see it? I think it makes it so much cooler, not that it needed cool points cause it’s just straight AWESOME.

once we got there Dustin asked “Jess, have you seen your Street Style section in print yet??!” and I exclaimed “NOOO!!!” and we both ran over and flipped to page 58 and then proceeded to OooH and Ahhhh :P then we took the above photos and got filmed doing so by the Modern Luxury videographer, silly awesome moment that I’ll never forget!

the title of this post was actually something Dustin said to me after the party, he said that I looked pretty in my new dress and said that I looked “youthful and free” which made my heart flutter and I thought it was the perfect compliment to me and the dress!
