Growing up, art class was always my absolute favorite time of day in school… and for what it’s worth, I was actually pretty good at it too! “Was” being very much the key word here… I haven’t picked up a paint brush in years, so it’s safe to assume I’m probably still stuck at a 3rd grade level when it comes to anything fine arts related.
One of the best things about social media, and Instagram in particular, is how much access we have to see, share and appreciate artistic talent from all over the world. My love of visual aesthetics is part of what inspired me to start this blog in the first place, so I was so happy to see that what I’ve been working on so far has also inspired other creative minds as well.
Even though I’ve lived in Atlanta for years now, I still have this weird thing about reading tourist guides to the city, because I’m always on the lookout for new neighborhoods to discover and new things to do. I found this 24-Hour guide to ATL on Condé Nast Traveler a few days ago, and as a crêpe enthusiast, you bet I had Julianna’s Coffee & Crêpes bookmarked for the weekend!!
Tucked away in Inman Park, Julianna’s is like one of the city’s undiscovered gems… I was so surprised that on a late Sunday morning, we didn’t have to deal with a long wait in anticipation of one of the best breakfasts I’ve had in a long time! Their menu has sweet and savory crêpes, so there’s definitely something to satisfy any craving. This might be my new weekend joint, so…. if you ever need to find me, you know where to look ;)
Bit of a cheeky one with the outfit, by the way… I’ve been on a real shirtdress bender as of late, and I love the versatility of this one. I took a more daring route this time by wearing it as a dress to play up the thigh-high slits, but as it gets colder I’ll definitely be throwing leggings on, or dressing it down as a light cover-all with jeans and a tank.
My new boots, gifted to me by my friends at Skechers, are the perfect addition to my shoe collection just in time for the transition into autumn. I love the color, and the rugged style adds the perfect edgy touch to any outfit.
Hope you all have a great start to your week! Shop the look below:
Happy first day of September! Crazy how quickly this year has been zipping by… I suppose it’s one of the things you begin to notice as you get older, but it’s still so weird cause I remember January 1st like it was just yesterday!
I was out celebrating the long weekend yesterday over cocktails and appetizers, and I got to thinking that I could really do with a couple more days off… vacation, anybody? My wanderlust is stirring! Anyway, I discovered my new favorite drink at Parker’s on Ponce — if you’re ever in the Decatur neighborhood, you should definitely try their Thai Coconut cocktail! Made with coconut water and limes, it’s light, fresh and not too sweet at all, which is exactly how I like my drinks :)
I have been eyeing this varsity-style sweater from NastyGal for the past few weeks now, and I finally made it mine a couple weeks ago. It’s such a simple piece, but the clean black and white lines seem to have the ability to dress up anything it goes with — even my favorite pair of rugged boyfriend jeans. Shop my sweater style below:
