I think I’ve found a reoccurring entry I can actually keep up with- these ‘weekend wear’ posts are fun and easy! Especially since I spend my weekends with my honey and he’s a great photographer and I feel comfortable asking him because he loves helping me out and is super supportive of my blogging. I hope to get them up on Mondays but sometimes my Monday evening after work is more for playing catch up on chores and decompressing since the weekend often goes until Sunday night.
Unlike the previous two weekends we did not get BBQ instead kept our Friday simple and walked over to The Bookhouse pub, one of my favorite pubs for Oberon on draft and a yummy dinner. On the walk over I commented about the chilly weather and Dustin said “yea, we’re having a ‘blackberry winter’..” to which I replied “oh yea? didn’t know that was a thing.” He didn’t either until one of his coworkers had told him about it so we were both new to this Southern term which refers to a cold front that coincides with the time-frame that blackberries are in bloom. As expected it didn’t last long since it’s about to be real deal summer here in Hotlanta. Always glad to take advantage of a cool front and continue wearing Spring layers and open up the windows in my loft. Speaking of layering, this “dress” has to be layered because it doesn’t cover much, don’t even think tights would be appropriate but with jeans it works! Pretty hilarious when my mom gave it to me on a family trip last year and I put it on and came out and my brother was like “ah Jess!” and mom and dad said “oh no, think it’s a *little* too short!” OOPS!
During the pre-Shaky knees Party at Free People White Provisions I was given one of these cute totes and it’s been my purse for the last week. It’s been great because I like having a casual day time bag I can toss all of my chunky things in like planner and journal and then if I go out change things over to a smaller more dressy bag.
Keep growing hair, keep growing!

The majority of the weekend was spent with my girlfriends on a mini getaway in Ball Ground, Georgia. Eleven of us caravaned up to my friends parents home in the mountains where we hiked, cooked out, day drank and played Cards Against Humanity. I left my camera at home and focused on enjoying time with my friends, though I did document all of our amazing meals for Instagram! I love how just an hour and fifteen minute drive up the interstate and it feels like you are in a totally different state all together~
Hope you’ve been enjoying my little weekend recaps, expect to see more!
