WEAR 16

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!

SHADES OF BLACK

15457141277_9a5c1ebef0_k
Lately I’ve been purging my closet by selling, trading and donating unwanted clothes.  My goal is to have more of a “capsule wardrobe” of quality pieces that are more timeless/classic vs. on trend though I know myself and will likely grab a few trendy articles here and there. One color I noticed that is still in abundance is black.  That’s probably because I’ve always felt like head-to-toe black is so chic but I usually like to add a few pops of other colors to break it up.  Definitely ok with having a black wardrobe especially when it comes to Fall and Winter-black clothes in the South during Summer gets a little trickier. Scroll down for outfit details!

COACHELLA | FESTIVAL FASHION

f65c74e41ee8b9d6036519c47a11c3e3If you have an IG account or access to the internet than you are most likely aware that Coachella part 1 happened last weekend. For yet another year I was forced to watch from home but will forever hold on to the memories of the two times I partied down in the desert of Indio, California.  Here are my top 10 favorite looks from the VERY fashionable festival-

I can’t help it, I’ll always love floral and denim! These are definite inspiration for the upcoming Shaky Knees Fest which I’ll be attending for the second year. Hopefully this time is a lot less rainy and muddy so I can wear some denim and floral!

Have a great rest of the short work week and a Happy Easter!

braids

I’ve always loved the ‘milk maid’ braids look and recently attempted with my thick hair. After many failed attempts I enlisted my boyfriend to help. I found a four-braid style that mimicked the milk maid look on Pinterest and together we accomplished a woven braid “nest” that ended up turning out really neat! As my hair gets longer it should become easier to braid.  I thought it was the cutest thing ever as Dustin was braiding my hair he said “you know where I learned to do this, Boy Scouts but with leather and tree bark!” Gah, I love this guy!

After we finally got the braids to hold Dustin took me to downtown Roswell to check out a few antique shops, art galleries and get in some freelance work snapping street style pics for Jezebel. We went to Ceviche and had some really great lettuce fish tacos and explored around the quaint streets before ending our adventure sipping wine on the lawn of a picnic area connected to Nine Street Kitchen.

This past weekend we carpooled down to Alabama from GA with my little brother to celebrate our Dad’s 50th birthday. Yes, fifty. My parents are both young considering I’m turning 28 on the 25th but they met young, married young and started a family young.  I’ve always loved having young parents, it’s like we all grew up together!  Friday we got margaritas and Mexican at the local Jalapenos and took the party back to their house. Saturday we went out to Bower’s Park to play disc golf-think golf but with frisbees.  We split up into two teams-me and my parents against Dustin, Brad (brother) and Emily (bro’s gf)-and played all 18 holes. What’s so neat about this course is that it’s actually in hilly woods so you feel like you’re hiking (because you ARE!)  We had stopped by Which Wich for lunch and ate on a bridge that we found along the course until it literally BROKE (oddly enough it was right after I had taken a seat…) and we all freaked and finished our food on hard land.
The game was close but Dustin’s team ended up winning. Since the weather was so incredibly nice we ended up doing some more hiking behind my parents yard because it’s pretty much a mountain’s valley. We found the creek and walked around finding salamanders until it was time to eat dinner. Mom made white bean chicken chili that we all devoured. Seriously could not have asked for a better weekend with my family!

black, white and khaki

12804354235_81bee9b229_bI don’t know about your city but Atlanta’s temperatures have plummeted once again.  We had another cold front roll through and it feels like we may not get Spring for a little while longer.  I’ve seen it snow in March in Alabama so I try not to get my hopes up with warmer days until around April. This outfit is from a few weekends ago when Dustin and I went shopping around Atlantic Station. We each splurged at H&M getting basics and the pieces we wore on Valentines Day.

Currently on my last lunch break at the Mart. My boss couldn’t make it in today so I’m holding down the showroom fort solo, a bit anti-climatic if you ask me but I’m definitely happy for the new beginnings to happen on Monday!
