Happy Tuesday! Hope everyone’s week is off to a great start. I wore this outfit the past weekend when the weather was still warmer in Atlanta. I’m pretty happy for the cooler weather we have had lately though, it’s mid November so it’s about time! I paired this sleeveless sweater (that is the comfiest) with white denim. Yes it’s true, you can totally rock white denim after Labor Day (and I don’t care what anyone says!). White denim works if you style it right-pair it with darker colored, or jewel toned sweaters and boots. I really like the look of white denim with knee high boots too, it’s such a nice contrast. And this sweater is so cozy, I might go back and get it in another color. I was wearing it on repeat when I got it, and it’s only $25! I especially love this pretty deep burgandy/plum color. It is a looser fit, so I would recommend true to size or even sizing down if you want it to be a little more fitted. I’m also loving my wood watch, it goes with everything-dressed up or dressed down. Don’t forget to enter to win $75 towards your own watch here. You also get $20 just for entering too!

We are gearing up for Thanksgiving and all that comes with it-lots of great sales and holiday gifts. We will be sharing our gift guides very soon, so make sure to check back for that!

Taste of Atlanta Recap

I consider myself a foodie…I will try just about anything, one of my favorite things to do is to try a new restaurant in Atlanta with the hubs. Atlanta is quickly becoming the food capital of the South, and the food scene here is ever-changing and fresh. Combine trying new restaurants along with a outdoor festival setting, and you have me hooked! I had the opportunity to go to Taste of Atlanta a couple weeks ago on October 22nd. Taste of Atlanta is a 3 day food festival in it’s 15th year, serving up bites and craft cocktails from over 90 of Atlanta’s best and up-and-coming restaurants. A food lover’s dream-you get to try so many different things! Not only is there a ton of food, they are serving up live chef demos throughout the day and even offer cook-along classes.

One of the great things about this festival is that almost every transaction is done with your wristband. Not only does it gain you entrance, but you put ‘taste points’ onto the wrist band and that’s how you purchase food. I love this idea…it is SO much easier and quicker than have to do cash, or trying to find an ATM (if you are like me and never carry cash). It made the lines move very quickly so you weren’t just standing in line waiting for food. They could just scan your wristband and you are good to go!

wristbands

To put taste points onto your wristband, you could just do it online beforehand, or put taste points on there at the festival using ‘Top-up’ stations. I thought this would be a pain, but we were able to get more points onto our wristbands within 10 minutes of walking over. Super quick. The hubs is not a fan of waiting in line, so he was happy.

Now to the best part…the food. I ate so many good things, but I’m sharing a few of my favorites below.

‘Gangsta Fries’ from Bellwood’s Social House

These fries are AMAZING. Tasty homemade fries topped with blue cheese, chili oil, chives, and bacon. Does it get any better than that? Uhm hello ultimate cheat food. Bellwood’s is over in West Midtown, and is perfect for chill Sundays. (PS-they do a great brunch too!)

American Kobe Beef Meatballs from Davio’s

These perfectly rich and tender mini meatballs from Davio’s, topped with a sprinkle of freshly shredded Parmesan and a light red sauce, literally melted in your mouth. The texture of the meatball was perfect, which is amazing considering they made a TON. Just a couple bites of this meatball made me want to try more from this steakhouse, located in Phipps Plaza.

Braised Short Rib over Celery Root and Potato Puree from Blue Ridge Grill 

This restaurant in Buckhead holds a special place in my heart, since that’s where my husband and I had our first official date. They are known for a great steak, but their seafood selections are always stellar. This braised short rib was something I had never had there, but would definitely order again. It was so tender and flavorful, and the puree complemented nicely without overwhelming.

Fried Chicken Salad Slider from The Shed at Glenwood

The Shed is known for their Fried Chicken, so when I saw this interesting take on it, I knew I had to try it. It was even better that I thought it would be! Still crispy from frying, but also that creamy classic chicken salad feel. Served on an H&F bun too, so you can’t beat that. If you haven’t been to this quaint little restaurant over near East Atlanta, get on it!

If you have never been to a food festival like this, you have to try it! It’s such a great way to explore all the food and experiences that your city has to offer. I can’t wait to go back next year and try even more new restaurants. When else will you be able to try what so many different places have to offer? Hope to see you all next year if you live in Atlanta!

One last pop of pink and the most comfortable vest you’ll ever wear.

Hi all,

Hope everyone has been having a great week. It’s that rare few weeks in Atlanta when the weather is perfect and you just want to live on the patio. I’ve had some pretty long workdays lately and I know the first thing you want to do at the end of the week to decompress is go enjoy happy hour (or nap ;)). One thing I’ve found is that there a few pieces that can help you take that look from day to night and that is a vest/jacket you can toss on and bright, fun pair of heels.

Check out the links before for this crazy affordable shoes and this great vest that literally be paired with anything. What are your go to pieces? Let us know by leaving a comment!

Bra Fitting Tips with Third Love

A key part of putting together any outfit is making sure the fit is right. Whether it be the right length of pants or the correct fit of a dress, it makes you look more well put together when everything fits. The foundation of your look starts with the right fitting undergarments-so you have to make sure your bra is fitting well and sized right too! We have all had those ‘bra-blems’: straps that slip, bulge from an ill-fitting band, of gapping in the cups that you can see through a shirt. If your bra fits properly it makes a huge difference in how your clothes fit over. And let’s be honest: I know that I feel and look my best when my bra fits well and I don’t have to think about it! We have a cute little guide with some tips to help you get the best fit possible, so that you can look your best! And our friends over at Third Love have even offered a discount for our readers to help get you started too! They have the cutest bras for all shapes and sizes, and they even come in half sizes too so you can make sure you get the best fit possible. We really like this pretty Lace Push Up and this fun Strappy T-Shirt Bra that you can wear with low side cut top. They even offer free shipping for orders over $75, and always free returns and exchanges.

brablems

Third Love is offering all our readers 15% off with code TLSEPBB15 so that you can get started on looking your best and fixing all these ‘bra-blems’. They even have an app so that you can get sized properly in the comfort of home and don’t have to do some awkward fitting. You can even do it with your phone! So grab your phone and your discount code and give it a try, and let us know what you think in the comments below!
