once summer arrives, it’s festival time. san francisco is known for its various takes on music, parades, and street fairs. but i’m in new digs this year, and atlanta is kicking off the season with a weekend chock full of activities at the atlanta food and wine festival from june 2 – june 5. it’s certain to be an extravaganza filled with all sorts of comfort food and culinary delights. this ootd might be the perfect ensemble for sunday brunch or friday night’s tasting event. but i’m taking it for a spin drive on date night. since arriving in the deep south my love affair with shorts has been rekindled. and my favorite length is the mighty bermuda. grazing the knee this short can easily be dressed up a smidge as in today’s ootd. i’ve paired them with a pinstripe tuxedo shirt and thrown on a pair of heels to amp up the sophistication level. add a clutch handbag and a few baubles and i’m ready for cocktail hour with my main squeeze. but the great thing about shorts is that they can easily transition into a day of errands or lunch with the girls. just throw on a humble tee shirt and sandals. voila! instant transformation.

The outfit is perfect and the mani-pedi makes it pop! You are always so well put together. How do you think Georgia ladies compare to CA ladies regarding fashion and chic? (Not to put you on the spot!) I’ve been going back through your posts to read the ones I’ve missed while I’ve had a summer cold/virus/heebie-jeebies. I think I’m going to live now…it seemed touch and go for a while…not really but it sure felt like it. xoxo
