Western and Atlantic Railroad

Western and Atlantic Railroad

I love being a tourist in my own state/neighboring state! I seem to always take for granted all the little gems that are near by — luckily I know someone who is well acquainted with GA history, and history in general (visit: Countytrip.wordpress.com), so it’s always a blast when they take me along for the ride.

We visited Western and Atlantic Railroad Chetoogeta Mountain Tunnel. I decided to tap into my inner Bollywood star and pose!

Now on to my outfit for the day (OOTD):  I’m wearing a white cotton sleeveless button down from H&M (probably $12?), bright coral shorts from J. Crew ( probably $20), a Missoni inspired cuff from Forever21 ($9), & tan suede oxford shoes from Express ($25).

Cheers!

Maxi Dresses in Rural SC

Image

In the picture above, I’m visiting my best friend (who just finished her first year at Medical School)! We went out with her Medical school friends to celebrate her classmates birthday. The school is located in rural SC, so we hit up a local bar. We knew we didn’t want to look club-y, but that we still wanted to wear dresses and be girly-sophisticated.

I’m seriously obsessed with MAXI DRESSES!  I would wear one everyday– if I had more than three! Unfortunately, I am still building my collection. I purchased this maxi dress  from Urban Outfitters this past fall! I bought it for $30 or $35.  It was originally $80, and I some how wait and waited until I couldn’t wait any longer….and made the purchase. I have worn it at least 5-6 times since purchasing it. It’s great for all sorts of occasions. It’s casual, yet dressy (especially when I wear chunky heels with it). There is a slit in the front that comes up to my knees for a little leg exposure.  My black bag is from Forever21 & I’m wearing kitten heels from Nine West!

My best friend is  wearing a tribal short dress from Forever21. She purchased the dress in May of 2012 for $25?  It’s an awesome dress, since she has worn it to a plethora of occasions.  Her bag is Tory Burch, and she is wearing  black sandals.

See you soon!

Party Bus – ATL

Party Bus - ATL

This past weekend I took a party bus with some friends! It was AN incredibly fun weekend. Although, I did NOT want to use this blog to discuss my life or things that I do socially —I’ll purposely slip up JUST once.

We first took the party to FOX BROTHERS BBQ.
If you haven’t heard of FOX BROS BBQ, it’s seriously the best BBQ in ATL. I absolutely love the food and the service is AWESOME! I got the FoxBros Burger, with a side of Mac n Cheese & (the award winning) Chili!

After dinner, we went to Flip Flops. Flip Flops is a College esq. bar, they play awesome music upstairs and downstairs, but upstairs is where the party is AT. Everyone is dancing, and enjoying the DJ –who, by the way, DOES NOT TAKE REQUESTS. The dance floor is small, and the upstairs gets extremely packed by 12!

NEXT, we went to COSMO LAVA. Cosmo Lava, has a dress code, so NO flip flips allowed BROS. Cosmo Lava has a million different dance rooms, which is cool, but overwhelming, since everyone ends up in different areas of the massive club. So it’s hard to keep track of what is going on, and where everyone is! It’s great for a wide variety of people, races and music! It’s truly an eclectic joint!

OOTN: As you can see we went to completely different venues through out the entire night, so I wore white shorts, and a coral linen shirt. The shorts are from Arden B. and the Linen shirt is from J. Crew. I decided to pair it with some light arm candy, diamond studs, & NUDE kitten heels from NineWest (to make sure that my attire would be night time appropriate, and not look way TOO casual). The purse i’m wearing is just a plain black messenger bag from Forever 21 (I LOVE the bag, I’ve had it for around a year now, and it’s awesome, I wear it more than any of my other 20 purses–it goes to show, a simple black bag can go a long way!)

Summer Fest: VaHi

This weekend I attended Virginia Highland’s Summer Fest.  It was a blast!  I wore a white skater dress (Urban Outfitters) w/gold  sandals (Guess) & a Tory Burch messenger bag.

The friend on the right is wearing a shirt from Brooks Brothers & Ray-Ban sunglasses!

My best friends visited me this memorial day weekend! I took them to them to this beautiful park. We love doing outdoorsy things, and we also LOVE getting dressed up– so this park was perfect for us! It had beautiful mini bridges and plenty of benches of us to sit and relax. The weather was perfect, and the trees were sky tall, blocking the hot Georgia sun.

My Maxi Dress is from Urban Outfitters. I LOVE IT! I have worn it several times since purchasing it. It’s extremely light and still very opaque. The little splash of neon makes it a fun dress for day OR night! I bought it for $25-$30 on sale this past OCTOBER!

LOVE!

Park Picnic!

I absolutely love picnics! They’re my favorite part of the spring and summer season.  I just went on one yesterday– the weather was in the high 70’s, a little windy, great company & not to crowded. I couldn’t have been any happier. We enjoyed drunken goat & manchego cheese, a baguette, curried chicken salad, & tiramisu!

All of the treats were from Alon’s!  The tiramisu was perfect: light, not to sweet, and an awesome mixture of flavors.

Wedges: NineWest. White jeans: Urban Outfitters. Top: H&M. Necklace: Forever21. Hat: Forever21. Sunglasses: Coach.

I hope all of you get a chance to enjoy the great weather. Also, Happy Memorial Day!

LOVE.

OOTD: First Day of Work!

Hello,

I just started my summer internship at an Entertainment Law practice! The practice has represented entertainment like: Jagged Edge, Arrested Development, Cabbage Patch Kids, The Black Crows, & many more! It’s exciting to be learning about such an “entertaining” field!  I would absolutely love to negotiate contracts, on behalf of, people pursing the arts. I think that creativity is the key to any thriving & successful society, and being able to participate in protecting it –is a privilege.

The OUTFIT:

My boss emailed told me to dress on the casual side –so I went for business casual. It was the perfect idea. I straightened my hair & parted it down the middle. I really wanted a clean-cut, but feminine look.

Image

Blouse: Forever21 (I think –$20- purchased in March, 2013)

Skirt: H&M (I think $20?- purchased in 2012)

Belt: Forever21 ($4)

Shoes: Ninewest (featured before)

Bag: Aldo ($25-$30. 2012)

 I’m off to start my first day—- Bye!

Casual Men’s Outfit Of The Day

My muse has finally arrived. One of my friend’s, best friends, has finally arrived to my city! I honestly have been counting down his arrival, since I’ve been dying to regularly post Men’s outfit of the day!

This guy could seriously be a male model, but, instead, he chose to attend law school. He is one of the best dressed guys I know, and puts very little effort in his outfits. I guess he is one of those guys that has a good sense of style, and knows what fits his body type. We went to Starbucks today and here is what he wore (also it took him about ten mins to shower & get ready this morning–so he instinctually has good taste!)

ImageYou can see his whole outfit from here. He is wearing a Shirt from J.Crew, Jeans from H&M, Toy Watch,  & Sperry’s.

He does an excellent job pulling off the tortoise glasses.

Anyways, this is a SUPER simple outfit. Make sure the pieces fit you well & aren’t TOO baggy. Keep one or two of the buttons undone (and do some light manscaping) –you’ll be good to go! Best of luck!

Want to look cute for class?

Life as a graduate student means putting in the hours all day- everyday, even the weekend while you’re visiting your best friend. The outfit featured here consists of: Green Studded Pants from H&M ($39), GAP Jean Jacket ($30) , White sheer shirt from Marshalls ($10 or $14), Steve Madden Sandals ($30 Summer 2012), Ralph Lauren Aviators from Century 21 ($30) & MK watch.

This outfit looks effortless & so cute! The weather outside was in the mid 70’s, but the library was in the mid 60’s, so it was an excellent idea to layer up!

A Night Out!

A Night Out!

The girl to the left is wearing:

Forever 21 Eyelet Dress ($30) and Statement Necklace ($12). Black Nine West kitten heels ($60),  Black Forever 21 purse ($22-30 -I think. Also, I love this purse. it’s so versatile & spacious, but at the same time SMALL!) I wore a light Banana Republic jacket ($55).

The girl to the right is wearing a Forever 21 dress, Pearl earrings,  Nude suede Aldo Shoes ($30)  & a Tory Burch messenger bag!

More Details and Ideas:

I purchased the white dress to wear to an Easter brunch, unfortunately, this year I had no time to attend an Easter brunch, but I did get to wear the white dress to meet my friends parents for dinner on Easter weekend Saturday. The dress came with an orange/brown hue belt, I decided to replace that belt with a skinny black belt, and wore it with a light black cardigan, black flats & black purse. The dress was a hit! I just posted this picture on Instagram and my friends commented saying how much they loved the dress.

When I wore this dress out for Tapas and Drinks I decided to NOT wear a belt, and instead sport a statement necklace (since you can only do one thing at a time, or else it looks like WAY too much is going on). Again, same dress different presentation and still a hit!  When I went to another bar some of the patrons actually thought I came from a wedding (so, I guess this means maybe I can sneak in the dress to a spring wedding)!

Enjoy!
