Last weekend Jason and I had the opportunity to break out of NYC for a long weekend and head back to our old stomping grounds of Atlanta, GA. I hadn’t been back since we moved years ago, and it was a surreal experience to see the city from different eyes and at a different stage in life.
Some sights and sounds brought back instant nostalgia, while other new developments made us feel foreign in our past home. It was a strange and humbling experience to reflect upon where we’ve been, how we’ve evolved and where we hope to go in the future.
One thing that hadn’t changed about the city was the unique Southern charm and style of the people! Atlanta has such an energy that is truly its own. And the people don’t mess around when it comes to fashion y’all! I knew that going back down South for this trip, I had to come correct with my outfits!
For my first day out on the town, we spent time exploring our old neighborhood of Buckhead- doing some shopping, dining and afternoon champagne sipping. I love the weather there, because despite the crisp fall air, it was still as bright as can be! The sunshine lets you get away with transitional mini-dresses, and I thought this was the perfect time to wear a new favorite from Maje. I love a good fit-and-flare dress, and this one has a Parisian feel with its classic black and white combo, combined with a short and flirty length. This dress was just the inspiration I needed to break out a brand new pair of Stuart Weitzman boots! You may have seen me in the Highland, but this year I sprung for the AllLegs which go even higher on the thigh (ooh la la) with a slightly pointier toe. I think they’re so sexy, and I love them!
To go with my little French dress, I paired Chanel accessories (but of course!) and a red oversized blazer that I found at my local thrift store. You never know what treasures you can find!
I had such amazing trip and I hope to be back soon! But in the meantime, I can’t wait to wear this again back in New York… just maybe with some tights.
P.S. Maje is currently having their Friends & Family Sale. So if you like my dress, you can head there to find other goodies on sale!
