Step inside the doors of the third Free People location at the new Avalon in Alpharetta!  Along with visiting West Elm in the previous post I popped over to await the grand opening of FP.  Everyone in line was so excited to see the decorations since we all know that FP merchandising is always dreamy!  Of course we were also pumped about the clothing and accessories-the Fall/Winter collection features lots of lace, stars and sparkly details. Check out my favorite details—
Really happy for Alissa, the store manager, and her team-they did a fantastic job pulling it all together!


Remember this post recapping my experience with the CAMP Summer Supper? It made such an impression on me that I had to attend the recent Fall Supper!  The venue was the same as the last supper but this time around they transformed it into a cozy Autumn hangout.  Sun in My Belly fits the vibe of the group of folks that host and show up so nicely, it’s a perfect fit!

The motivation of this event is meeting and mingling, so most of the night was nibbling on food in between talking to new and old friends. So I mostly stuck with the easy finger food options, my favorite was the appetizer pork tacos, I could eat a taco any season of the year! Check out my photos from the low-lit evening —

What I wore: H&M dress, Gap chambray shirt, Sam Edelman boots, Ax and Arrow necklace, Madewell tote and Stetson hat.
There was a Smile Booth, fire pit, and a really great raffle of the above prizes (more not captured in this photo.) I was crossing all my fingers and toes for that Atlanta stamp made by Yes Ma’am Paper Goods!! Sadly I didn’t win anything but I did leave with a great time and some new gal pals! Thanks for another great time CAMP!


This time around I felt more inclined to enjoy myself and not worry with photos. However, the fashion loving photographer in me still chased down some ladies for a quick snap of their outfits or details. As usual they were stoked so it made it all the better for me and my efforts!

This year’s festival fashion was what you’d expect–flower crowns, high waist shorts, kimonos and floppy hats.  So many people were hating on the fashion trends but I like seeing flower crowns and mom shorts.  Yea, I agree, not everyone should sport revealing clothing (re: butt cleavage) or turn into a bohemian for the sake of a music festival but I appreciate the effort some people put into getting ready!
Thanks to the ladies who stopped for photos!

Hope you all had a good weekend. Ours included BBQ, workout, Outkast and Atlanta Streets Alive. Needless to say, we are pooped!

Free People: THE RIDE

Free People puts so much thought into their catalog’s story lines and photography it blows me away.  For this month they enlisted one of my favorite models, Erin Wasson, a free spirit babe who knows how to rock some flowy boho clothes.  She is the definition of hip if you ask me. Not only did they choose the perfect lady model they also enlisted a hottie as her motorcycle riding boyfriend that proposes to her in the desert.  This brand knows how to make an out of the ordinary catalog and that also goes for Anthropologie and Urban Outfitters-who are under the same corporate umbrella. See for yourself and then follow the link at the end of the post to view the video!

Free People’s March collection sheds its winter layers and embraces a bare look for spring. The collection features an eclectic mix of pieces from ‘barely there’ tops layered with strappy bras, to bold South American-inspired denim, and breezy maxis. Accessories focus on long drapey chains and statement arm cuffs to complete the look.

Watch the video of the romantic cross-country motorcycle ride here!  Not that I’m thinking about eloping-my mom would kill me as we both want to plan a beautiful rustic Southern wedding-but wouldn’t that be adventurous/thrilling/fun/romantic?!

PS: It’s my birthday month and I’m not picky, love the whole collection, hint hint wink wink! (But if you twist my arm to pick I’d love the red maxi!)

Sneak Peek

each month when the Free People catalog preview hits my inbox I always get really excited, for many reasons. first reason, I’m getting to see a sneak peak of what’s to come before it’s actually hitting mailboxes and secondly it’s always B E A U T I F U L and inspiring! hence why I’m always saving my hard copies and hoarding them away for later use to collage with or just to flip through again and again.

“For this month’s catalog, Free People tapped the beautiful Anja Rubik to show off the latest from the line. Amazing booties alongside great transitional jackets, and breezy dresses are mixed with funky accents such as armor-like jewelry and rounded sunnies.
Anja shows off her cool, unique personality in every shot and we can’t help but be reminded that this is what the Free People fashion is all about: clothing that adapts to women everywhere, showing off their inner beauty and accentuating their individuality.”

while I’m giving FP a shoutout may as well mention that they JUST launched an APP that’s available as of today for FREE. you can shop, see what’s trending, keep track of pieces you like and best of all get inspired by their styling. I just downloaded it and started exploring, perhaps a second app review will follow? 

don’t know about you but I’m super excited for the mid-week holiday! especially since a gal pal is throwing and epic bday bash that will include fireworks, RED/WHITE/BLUE EVERYTHING, bb guns, BBQ and back porch beer sipping!

Summer has officially BEGUN.
