Let’s talk trends. Well, one in particular. The wide leg pant. I don’t even know if you should call this a trend, because in my mind, it’s more of a classic that’s come back. But either way, it’s hit and I hope, here to stay for a while.
Last Fall I bought a pair from Madewell, called the Emmett. She’s high-waisted, wide throughout the leg, has the perfect amount of stretch and cropped above the ankle. I’ve been rocking them through all the seasons!
Since the successful release of this color, they’ve come out with a jean version I really dig and feel like my closet needs. I mean, as you can see, she’s very versatile!Here are a bunch of other great wide cropped jeans.
Which outfit above is your favorite? I vote for the last one, which is the most current way I wore them, or the mustard top. Obsessed with both rust and mustard these days and not afraid of mixing both in one look!
Wine enthusiasts rejoice, I have found a hidden wine treasure!
An hour drive North of Atlanta will land you at Sharp Mountain Vineyards, Georgia’s 3rd oldest grapes.
We started with a tasting, which includes 5 wines. Below is what I chose and how I felt about it.
Usually a chardonnay gal, I surprised myself and went with a full pour of their ‘clean and crisp’ sauv blanc. MMM, would so drink right now! (but it’s 11am so…I digress)
Don’t let the comic sans font throw you off from the seriousness they take in their old-world style wine crafting; they grow, produce and bottle all of their own wine!
You’ll notice on my notes sheet, I wrote “only pinot noir in Georgia” which I was really pumped on as that’s my go-to red. Because of our high humidity and heat, it’s very difficult to grow in our state. Yet somehow, it’s been done, and quite well! Sharp’s was dryer than most I’ve had. Won’t even begin to sound like I know it’s because of this or that, I just know it was tasty!
One quick look at my IG and you’ll notice I’m pretty dang fond of this here (above) color. Even with impending Summer days, I don’t see it as a Fall-only pallet either. May be harder to find, but I’m on it!
Another thing I’ve been all about is-basics; you know, those staple pieces that can be mixed and matched within your wardrobe. Leaning less and less away from statement items simply because with my casual workplace and hobbies, the flashy pieces just don’t get as much wear.
At the moment, you could call my closet a ‘capsule wardrobe’ or at least the closest to I’ve ever been. Most of my favorite basics come from Madewell. Crew necks are also on repeat at the moment. Unless a client visit or shoot is happening, you’ll find me in a basic paired with classic jeans most week days.
A couple that stays together, dresses alike – that’s the saying, right?!
Back to wine, I would absolutely recommend visiting Sharp Mountain. If not only for the tasty wine but also the friendly staff and view of the mountain. There was a small group of ladies that posted up on a picnic blanket with the mountain as a backdrop, perfection if you ask me!
after taking Monday evening to recoup from the weekend and get things together for the week (which most people do Sunday night, however, usually I’m still having fun!) I’ve put together the photos from the blogger brunch Natalie of Pocket of Presh, Kelly of R-Ki-Tekt and I had on Saturday in White Provisions. we met at the yummy West Egg and caught up on our busy lives and THEIR BABIES that are on the way-yes, they are BOTH pregnant! this is Natalie’s first and it’s too early to know the gender and Kelly’s second child but first boy-so happy for both of them! it was fun chatting about baby names, pregnancy stuff (yes, I find this interesting and not weird at all!) and we even went to the cutest kid store called Seed Factory. we also dropped by the Free People and SimplyPut. here’s what we wore:
I love how we all three wore complimentary patterns and colors! even though we all took pics of our brunch I didn’t take any with my fancy camera-just iphone for Instagraming-oh well, it was YUMMY!
you can barely see it but Natalie has the cutest baby bump, eeeee! she’s wearing a Loft jumpsuit and sunnies, Target shoes, Michael Kors watch, and Presh Studios clutch
Natalie made this clutch from soft perferated leather-all her designs are available on her Etsy shop!
how cute is her baby bump?!? talking with Kelly about children had me in laughter tears, she has the best sense of humor about having and raising kids.
Kelly made this necklace from geometric shaped hand painted wooden beads and sterling chain-all her designs are available in her Etsy shop! she’s wearing Marshall’s dress, Target sandals, Kate Spade bag, necklace by (r-ki-tekt) and Gap sunnies
smiling for sun (finally it shows its BRIGHT face! but then it totally stormed…)
and now for my brunch baby bump!!
I’m wearing a Madewell x Alexa Chung dress, H&M hat, Clarks wedges, Kate Spade bag and Clothing Warehouse sunnies.
best of luck to my blogger lady friends and their lil bundles of joy on the way!
tomorrow I’m going to see Jimmy Eat World, high school dreams coming true y’all!
