Agora...
































Top: TargetBlazer: JCrew Pants: ExpressShoes: Christian LouboutinHat: JCrew Duffel Bag: Louis Vuitton

Paris might be my favorite place on earth.  Seriously, it is kind of unfair how amazing this place is. Paris is a city overflowing with amazing history, beautiful architecture, incredible food, and interesting people. It also happens to be one of the most stylish places on earth. Well, Jordan and I are very excited because we are going back to Paris in November! My outfit today highlights some of my favorite literal things or items from one of the most magical cities on earth.  That being said, I need to discuss Agora, its owner Airee, and how I came to own my dream shoes and bag. Agora is a wonderful vintage shop located in Athens, GA (go Dawgs). Airee, the incredible and friendly shop owner, is an amazing curator of vintage and lightly used items. Recently, Airee opened a second shop (also called Agora) that is geared towards her high end designer pieces.  Airee has stocked this shop with everything a fashion minded girl could want: Hermes belts, Louis Vuitton bags, Christian Louboutin shoes, etc. Needless to say, when I first visited this new shop, it was love at first sight. Jordan and I went on a Saturday, and I was so surprised when Jordan  purchased me this LV duffle bag. So, Sunday, I went back with my mom to introduce her to Airee's goodies. That is when I noticed these beautiful "bloody bottoms." Someone literally dropped them off 30 minutes before I arrived. The shoes happened to be in my size, and they had been worn so little that the soles were completely scratch free! It was destiny. Anyway, after a phone call with the hubby and my left kidney (not really), I walked out of Agora with my fantasy pumps. Can you say a dream weekend? Thank you so much Airee and Agora! Make sure you follow them on Facebook. Airee posts deals daily!

Happy Monday!

Moto Jacket...

When deciding on what leather jacket to get, I knew I wanted to stick with my motto..."classic with a twist." So, when my mother and I stumbled across this jacket, I knew it fit the bill. The classic leather biker jacket, but in a fun color! 
Happy Friday!

The Look: Casual Weekend...



1..2..3..4..5..6.

I want to apologize for my lack of outfit posts this week.  Our schedule has been turned upside down by a surgery that our little girl, Ella Fitzgerald (our Austrialian Shepherd), had earlier this week.  I have some exciting things planned for next week, so make sure to stop back by.  Thanks for hanging in there with me while we tend to our little missy.
Happy Thursday!

More Leather...

Now that it is officially fall, it is socially acceptable to wear warmer clothing.  It may still be 70-80 degrees in Georgia, but I am going to use a "Fall Preview" to justify my sweating.  Ready or not, the leather, wool and flannel are coming out.
Happy Tuesday!

Buttoned Up...





























 








Jacket: American EagleSkirt: JCrewWedges: JCrewClutch: Vintage CoachSunglasses: Tory Burch

I am a firm believer in being adventurous and trying new things when it comes to what you wear. While flipping through the September issue of Insyle, I noticed alot of ads with models in denim jackets buttoned all the way up to their necks. What do you think? Do you think this works, or does it look like I am trying too hard?
Happy Tuesday!
