Fashion Friday: 60s Love

I think my recent Mad Men Netflix binges have been influencing my style lately. When I saw this dress I immediately fell in love with the deep cranberry color and the delicate houndstooth square pattern. At first I thought that the cut would appear too big on me but it's loose without looking sloppy or baggy and it is super comfortable! The fabric is so lightweight, you could easily wear this for fall or winter. I decided to pair it with my favorite trench from Anthro and this bold pearl statement necklace from H&M to bring out the white in the pattern.

Outfit Details:
Ruffled Trench - Anthropologie (old)
Dress - c/o Apricot Lane Boutique
Statement pearl necklace - H&M (old) SIMILAR
Boots - JCPenneys

An Afternoon at Apricot Lane

Last weekend I had the pleasure of visiting Apricot Lane Boutique in the Avenues Mall (you might remember the giveaway I hosted for breast cancer awareness last month). I was amazed at how this store managed to create a local boutique feel in a mall setting, the rustic brick walls are lined with cozy chunky knit sweaters, stylish booties, and darling dresses.

Upon entering the store I must admit I was was a bit overwhelmed with options, there was so many unique pieces that you couldn't find anywhere else (like these guitar pick necklaces for instance). I started grabbing pretty much everything in sight, lucky for me the store associate, Mari, was super nice and extremely knowledgeable in helping me select pieces and choosing the ones that were best suited for me, I couldn't have asked for a more personable, pleasant experience.

I was also a big fan of the chalk board dressing room signs!

I ended up choosing these two dress and one pair of earrings. I absolutely loved the black lace detailing on the heather grey tunic and this 60s inspired cranberry patterned dress perfectly suited for the holidays.
Look for these three pieces in upcoming Fashion Friday posts!

Film Flashback: FDR State Park

If you're familiar with this blog, you know I love to frequent GA State Parks, FDR is located in Pine Mountain GA and is filled with beautiful trails and water views. While it doesn't surpass Cloudland Canyon in my opinion, it is definitely in my top five, especially if you are seeking out some fall colors.

Wish List 2014

Christmas 2014

Here are some of my current favorites, as you can see there is a clear weenie dog theme, I love this "crazy wiener dog lady" shirt by a local brand called Bean Goods in Portland OR. Another favorite is this camera purse by Betsey Johnson and decorative plates from Anthropologie (I have been wanting to start a plate collection for years). What are some of your must-have items this holiday?

Fashion Friday: Stripes & Studs

If there is one look I could wear everyday it would most likely involve the color black, stripes, and a bold statement necklace. These are pretty much my fall staples and my new obsession is with this form fitting dress from Amiclubwear, I love the contrasting stripe pattern and the unique tulip hemline, you could pretty much wear this with anything. I decided to go with a more edgy look and paired it with a leather studded jacket and my new favorite necklace from Charlotte Russe.

Outfit Details:
Dress - c/o Amiclubwear
Necklace - Charlotte Russe
Jacket - H&M (Kids section)
Shoes - Steve Madden
