Saturday I joined the ladies-only bike ride, Critical Asss, for my second round at taking over the ATL streets. We started the ride at Bookhouse Pub, road through the Highlands to Little Five Points, down Edgewood and ended around where we started. The cool breeze and sun provided a beautiful day for riding!
Hanging with repeat riders Stephanie and Elizabeth.

Matching Linus X TOMS bikes!
Borrowed Dustin’s helmet cause it matched my outfit better than my mint one, Yep, that’s a thing.
I’m so proud to be a women when I participate in lady-only events. The natural bond that women share is so powerful. This ride is proof- no one is left behind, left out or criticized. Each lady is included in the group even if you’re new and don’t know a soul. If you are in the area, I encourage you to join!

*PS* Don’t forget about this Saturday’s BLOGGER CLOSET SALE at W Buckhead-See you there!!!!
Hope everyone survived their Monday! Over at my offices we are gearing up for the Apparel Show so it’s the usual pre-show crazy but it feels good to keep this month fast-paced since January seems to drag on and on. This weekend Dustin and I saw the new movie, Wolf on Wall Street and had many’a good laughs! That film was wild, long and hilarious-definitely recommend if the F-word and nudity doesn’t offend you because Leo’s roll is phenomenal! We also attended the Winter Beer Fest at the Masquerade Music Park, of course we had lots of fun as we both love beer and live music. In between these activities I snapped photos for Jezebel street style and visited Molly Rose Freeman‘s art studio at the Goat Farm. I’ll be working on those photos this week and will post a little interview with her soon. Today I’d like to share my photos from the lady bike ride, Critical Asss-

Ride started at Estoria in Cabbagetown and went through O4W to Little Five Points back around to the bar. It was a brisk sunny day that was filled with catching up with old friends and making a few new gal pals.
I gave our bike gang the name “Ally Cats” cause clearly are rebels that wreak havoc on the Beltline :P
Big fan of the detail on this Gap sweatshirt, fancy space lady attire.

To stay warm I wore an H&M hat, Gap sweatshirt, Gap denim shirt, 7 For All Mankind jeans (yes my ankles were cold!), new Asics from Free People.com and a Tulle Jacket I got via winning an Instagram contest via Need Supply
I don’t always bike in the cold, but when I do it’s with a bunch of kick asss ladies around the streets of ATL!

It isn’t hard for photos to get lost in my Iphoto library. Currently tasked with moving 2013’s photos to an external hard drive to be exact that’s 14,805 photos just from last year! While that is a lot, you have to remember I do event photography and also snap way more photos than I ever need at shoots because it’s always better to have more than wishing for additions after the fact. So recently when I was going through said humongous photo library I stumbled upon photos that Dustin took when the tree still had leaves and we were able to wear a lot less layers.
Shawlsmith London sent me a few of their scarves to test drive. I selected this pretty light blue, an electric blue and a grey/white mix. What I like most about their shawls is the length. You can really play with the way you wear them, such as looped around your neck or just hanging on either side.

This afternoon was so pretty! Missing warm weather like crazy but at least ATL isn’t covered in snow like other cities at the moment.
This past weekend I went on another bike ride but this time it was girls only! I’ll be working on those photos and posting them soon, check back for the “Critical Asss” ride beginning of next week but to hold you over I’ll be posting some sort of inspiration post on Friday.
