some days, mr. style and i pile into the car and head down to atlanta for the day. it’s an easy trip and there’s shopping galore. the one disadvantage of small town living is when you are on the hunt for something – like home furnishings – there aren’t that many options. but in atlanta the choices are endless – pick a suburb any suburb. but i think my favorite shopping mall is an outdoor venue by the name of avalon located in alpharetta.
so off we went to check out a few of my favorite stores; crate and barrel, west elm, pottery barn, williams sonoma, sur la table. honestly, when it comes to home design or kitchenware stores i could putter around all day. the visual merchanding teams do a stand-up job and there’s loads of inspiration to be found.
with a brisk chill in the air it was time to pop a coat on. from the looks of my ootd it was a gingham kind of day. or black and white. take your pick. both the cashmere gingham cardigan and gingham raincoat were purchased on sale at the end of last season. the cardigan is available here in a beautiful burgundy that’s the on-trend color for fall. or check out this black and white gingham crewneck here. while not a raincoat j.crew has a gorgeous gingham car coat here that’s available and on sale. white boyfriend jeans are a nice change of pace and i have to admit i love wearing white denim all year long. a black silk shirt? that’s a no-brainer any time of year as are black pointy-toed flats similar here.
okay, peeps, that’ll do it for today’s post. it’s back to shopping for this girl. but on a gorgeous fall day like today, i’m happy to stroll up and down these quaint streets.
