When you are sick...

You really just want your mom to take care of you!! Or when she lives too far you settle for 3 days in bed with your little pupper!

Todays Look: Black Maxi Dress

I typically feel WAY to short for this style but with the right heels I think it works! I found this little gem at Target and paired it with my fave turquoise necklace, any simple dress gets better with the right necklace. The racer back and overall shape are great and super easy for work.

Happy Birthday Chris

Today is one of my roommates birthdays so dinner at JCT kitchen followed by indoor bocce ball at Ormsbys. DELICIOUS shrimp and grits definitely helped distract me from the cold I am getting. I decided my new calf length skirt and a black shell and an amazing turquoise/feather necklace would work perfectly as its not tooo dressy but nice enough for dinner.

We headed to play (whcih sadly for me only lasted a few before the coughing set in...)

Girl Talk

So Friday Night was Girl Talk at the Tabernacle and all I can really say was unreal!

Taking the Fur Bus was also a genius plan so nobody was responsible for driving and I was super excited to break out my new comic book t!

Sunday NIght Dinner

This year I want to make an effort to eat in more local restaurants and fewer chains. So I decided that Sunday night dinner was the best way to start. Each Sunday I plan to eat at a new-to-me restaurant around Atlanta. To add a challenge we are using the alphabet as a guide, so next Sunday we have to find a restaurant that starts with an "A".

Last night was the last repeat of Cantina, so delish!

Sequin Shorts

I have been dying to find a pair of sequin shorts! I have looked everywhere for a reasonable pair, most are significantly out of my budget. I fell in love with a pair at Topshop but walked away. And just when I thought it was over I found these:

Cabin Fever

After our third snow day my roommate and I decided to venture out for lunch, being from the south and then New York I have no clue how to deal with ice. It is miserable and kind of scary but if you can be still and look around the snow covered world around is really beautiful. This week has been a past from my past with all the walking around, I have loved it!!
