Atlanta Style


you never know what the heck is going to happen and where the paths will lead but I’m a firm believer that everything happens for a reason and I very rarely have regrets. especially with relationships because even if it didn’t work out, chances are you both learned something about yourself and have a bunch of good memories to take with you onto the next journey. all this being said, I’m basically getting to the fact that my relationship with the “Silver Foxxx” ended last week.

so now it’s back to being a:

 many things factored into the split but one main hurtle that put a strain on things was not living in the same city. an hour and a half trek when you both work mon-fri often times till 6pm or later means you basically have the weekends to spend with one another. most weeks we’d have Wednesday as well but still..starting and building up a relationship not living in the same place at any point proved to be more difficult than I thought. like I said, many factors came into play with the ultimate decision to go our separate ways and I don’t normally put my personal life out in the open but so many people have asked and expressed concern and he had a presence here on the blog so just putting the news out there..

all in all, everything is great and I couldn’t be happier for the next chapter!

what’s next? don’t know but I’m real intrigued!
I’m really thankful for all the support and love from my friends + family. man, I’m truly lucky! it’s never easy when a relationship ends no matter the circumstances and I am fortunate to have great people in my life.

speaking of, a group of my gal pals and I went to Panama City Beach on an adult Spring Break adventure that was JUST what the doctor ordered! epic pics coming up next!
watch out Atlanta and surrounding area, Flashy’s on the prowl!


here’s an outfit I wore to a ladies crafting + vino night we had last week. since a bunch of my gal pals had been asking me to show them how I’ve learned to make flower crowns I figured why not tie it into our monthly meetup so that’s what we did over at Natalie from Pocket of Presh’s house!
above is one I made over Easter weekend and brought it along as an example. the purple flowers are actually oldies I had stashed away from high school!
outfit details: vintage top, TJ Maxx floral jeans, Sixtyseven booties via Anthro, Clothing Warehouse shades, V.LU Accessories necklace (via my showroom at Americasmart)
it’s almost the weekend which for some of us means music, Kentucky Derby and/or CHILL TIMES!
smile today :)

Wine on the Beltline

last weekend a buddy of ours invited us over to check out his airplane hangar turned junk shop turned new loft/event space in Old 4th Ward. we hung out in the back and watched folks & their dogs stroll by on the Beltline while we enjoyed some vino. Ryan and I only sorta coordinated our matching blue and white polka dots. ;)
Ryan wears-Jcrew button down, H&M polka dot suspenders, and Peoples Market jacket
tattoos and light layers
(don’t be fooled, I’m mildly freezing here!) 
wearing-LOFT tee, UO Skirt, AA socks, vintage boots and Zatchels bag 

sadly, over the years, I’ve realized I’m unable to drink red wine due to stomach problems, and out of all the whites I’ve realized said problematic tummy really only likes chardonnays. this is actually not all that bad considering all of the common characteristics chards can carry. the body can be light and fruity to  complex and buttery. also considering possible tasting notes like figs, honey, peaches, melons, hazelnuts, as well as herbs and spices; who could possibly get bored? not to mention its versatile and can be paired with most meals. having a boyfriend who has been raised to appreciate good wine has taught me a thing or two which also has me passing on Kroger’s on sale selection! he has been giving me tips on how to drink it properly in order to pick up different smells and tastes as well as sharing how the different regions and temperatures add to the complexity of chardonnay’s many varieties. no complaints here!
though I cannot wait for Spring, it was nice to see the sunset and full moon from ground level through the trees.

next few days consist of a double date Alt-J concert and a ladies only clothing swap at Young Blood Boutique + Mint Gallery.

the dress

this is a FLASHBACK post to Valentines Day when I wore my very special ASOS dress that Ryan surprised me with for Christmas. Saving it for the right occasion I had tucked it away in my closet. figured the day of celebrating love and doing so with a fancy date night was perfect timing! I wanted the dress to do all the ‘talking’ so I went out and bought nude tights, which I had never everrrrr worn before. wasn’t all that bad especially since it gave my ghost legs some color! (ladies: CVS-2 pairs for $6!)
I really like that my boyfriend has great taste because I never would have gone for a dress like this on my own. let me clarify…I wouldn’t go for a dress like this due to the shape, or rather my shape. I don’t care for bandage/pencil styles because I’m self conscious about my hips but with the peplum it isn’t an issue! thanks to my fashion forward sweety I’ve now discovered a new style I can rock with confidence!
outfit details: Asos dress, Clothing Warehouse sunnies, Zatchels bag, Eric Michael wedge booties 
enjoy the last bit of February but I’m sure you’re just as excited for this flu + rainy month to end and Spring to begin!
