ONE HAT, TWO DAYS

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.

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!
