Lately I’ve been obsessed with sleeves that have open or off-the-shoulder detail.  It started with my wedding dress and now has over taken my closet! Funny thing is, I feel like my shoulders have always been very broad so you would think it would accentuate that feature and make me feel too wide but in reality it’s flattering.



This is the outfit I wore to Monday’s Herradura Tequila event. Thanks to Jessica Camerata of My Style Vita for snapping these pics in 95 degrees of Georgia heat (+ 100% humidity *probably..) before we got tipsy!

Tomorrow we are off to Chicago! It’s my first time going and we have a lot planned. Expect a huge recap next week. Until then, safe travels/firework lighting/booze drinking/lake floating/family hanging~HAPPY FORTH!



If you haven’t been to Nashville then you may not know that it has much more to offer than honky-tonks and college football, they actually have a really great coffee scene, that’s right. Coffee.

Last weekend I went up to visit my girl friend Courtney who had recently moved up there and she took me to several of their coffee shop hot spots that pride themselves on artfully crafted coffee.

First stop, Barista Parlor.

The venue is really interesting, it’s an old transmission shop turned into an open air spot to hang and work while sipping your beverage of choice while vinyl spins in the background.


All those fancy gadgets and handsome baristas produce a strong cold brew that’s sure to please pallets and awaken even the most hungover gals!

Oh and not to mention the decor, which included my favorite things: flags and taxidermy. Really reminds me of the shop here Brick + Mortar which I wrote about here.


Second stop was Crema near downtown.

Not only does Crema make their own coconut milk from scratch but they also make the most incredible avocado toast I’ve had, must recreate! (avocado, goat cheese, red pepper flakes, sprouts) Court said the granola was real tasty too. One thing we didn’t try, and I’m now regretting, was the coffee soda. Think: carbonated coffee. Heard it’s unreal.


We gave no craps about being touristy and taking pics in front of this mural, too good to pass up! I gotta say it: USA!


Me: Free People top, Gap shorts, UO hat, Birkenstocks, KMM&CO bag, FP necklace and Kate Spade shades. Court: Free People shades, romper and bag, H&M sandals

Next was hitting up Imogene + Willie.

I had been drooling over IG pics and blog posts about this shop and had to see it for myself.  Trust me when I say, it’s everything you’d hope it would be!


All of their oils and candles smelled heavenly, and look at those incense huts, adorable!


The staff was very friendly and, of course, stylish. One of these days I’ll get fitted in a pair of perfect, Southern crafted, jeans and wear them until they give out!

Not that either of us wear glasses, but I+W is a Warby Parker retailer and we couldn’t help but try on a few pairs. I fell for these “Jennings” and when I (finally) get my eyes checked, if there’s even the slightest chance I need glasses, I’ll be sporting these!

Other spots we ate at that I didn’t photograph: Local Taco + Burger Up + Koi, all very good! Other activities not yet mentioned, learning to “nay nay” and laughing a whole lot with Courtney and her friends that I now call my friends-good, good time!

Next up, the Slow Living Kinfolk Supper!

Fashion’s Night Out

as most of you know last night was Fashion’s Night Out and even though Atlanta is not the most fashion forward city we did in fact have some cool events going on! i choose to hit up the G.Gilbert fashion show in White Provisions with my new blogger lady friend Natalie of Pocket of Presh.

we sipped wine and beers, nibbled on finger food from JCT Kitchen, Yeah Burger and Ormsby’s while watching ladies strut around the White Provisions attrium in pre-Fall fashions. here’s what we wore for the occasion:

dress: Free People, shoes: Sam Edelman, purse: Cynthia Rowley 
photo (27)
camera, fan, beer…ready for the Southern style fashion show!


my showroom boss lady was kind enough to loan me some Coralia Leets jewels for the evening, mmmmmm DRUZY!
Natalie’s look:
dress turned shirt: Doki Geki, pants: BCBG, heels: Nine West, necklace: H&M
we introduced ourselves to these well dressed ladies and come to find out they are best friends who are teaming up to start a fashion blog together, yay for more Atlanta blogger ladies!
great night with fabulous ladies, thanks G.Gilbert for hosting!

when i ACTUALLY have time to sift thru all the New York Fashion Week coverage i’ll be posting my favorite collections (which will most likely include Anne Sui, Alice + Olivia and other tokens i usually gravitate towards…)

hope everyone made it through the short week,


as a hard working woman i definitely appreciate other hard working women and i especially admire those who are also stylish and creative. Refinery 29 also takes notice in such females and is running a short feature-a-day for the month of August. so far my favorite ladies include jewelry designers, a stylist and a media strategist.  take a peak at their hip style and rad workspaces-

it’s only the 9th so lots of more workin women are to be featured, get inspired and check back daily at


now that you’ve gotten to know my gal pal Elizabeth, this next look will surely have you even more in love with her quirky taste:
-wedges by Steve Madden-
so Elizabeth, how did you score a TOMS bike?
It’s a special edition made for TOMS employees as a gift this past Christmas!

what is it that you do for TOMS?
I am the Southeast Retail Marketing Coordinator. I work with TOMS retailers in my region to get them trained on our company and products, get stores marketing and display materials for seasonal campaigns, organize and execute Style Your Sole events and be the eyes and ears of what’s going on at the retail level in my 7 states! 
-a sneak peak at her adorable home decor that will appear in the next post!-

thanks for checking out the second part of my spotlight on Elizabeth’s style. i won’t say i’m saving the best for last…but the next (and last)look is pretty sharp!
