White Oak

white oak kitchen atlanta

So this past weekend, Atlanta Downtown Restaurant Week kicked off.  I had found out about it on Facebook, and immediately knew that we would participate in it on our weekly date night.  After quickly checking the website, me and hubs decided on White Oak Kitchen.  The Yelp reviews were good and the hipster-ish name drew me in.

We were out and about on Saturday fairly early for a brewery tour, so we arrived for a slightly earlier-than-usual-for-a-Saturday-night dinner, which is why it may look a little empty in my photos.  I have to say, I love the decor.  It has all of these wood accents (of course) and has a huge wall of tall windows.  All of the natural light gives the place such a nice vibe, not to mention, it's perfect for taking food pictures.

During Atlanta Downtown Restaurant Week, participating restaurants put together a special prix-fixe menu at a fixed price that includes 3 or 4 courses.  The price is always a steal for what you're getting and it's such a great way for diners to become aquainted with the restaurant and it's food!  That is really the purpose of "restaurant weeks" in general--to get people inside these restaurants to discover or re-discover their offerings.

Because, I'm no bonafide restaurant critic, I will quickly let you know what we ordered.  I ordered the watermelon salad, chicken, and of course, the chocolate pot de créme.  Hubs ordered the tomato salad, pork, and the same dessert.  We both added the accompanying wine pairings as well.  We both thoroughly enjoyed our meals.  From the salads (hub's salad was the winner), to the entrées (tie), down to the dessert (same).  The wine pairings, also, perfectly complimented each course. 

I also would like to mention that the service was impeccable, including the sommelier!

So, if you live in the Atlanta area or are visiting, go have dinner at White Oak Kitchen, or drinks even at their beautiful but cozy bar.  I also recommend you try as many other restaurants as you can during ADRW, that's what me and the hubs plan to do!

White Tribal Dress


"Rasta Barbie", "Mocha-hontas"--all of the cliché names, I've been referring to myself as since I've put these Marley twists in my hair.  I love them!!  And it only took me 2-3 hours to put them in.  Yea, they are a bit sloppy, in my opinion, but this was my first time, so I'm not to concerned.  I'm just happy to be taking a breather from doing my hair. 

In this post, I'm wearing this white tribal print dress, I currently have stocked in my store.  I wore it on Saturday for a "date day" with the hubs.  We went to one of Atlanta's local breweries, Orpheus Brewing--went on the brewery tour and sampled some beer.  It's also Atlanta Downtown Restaurant Week, so we tried out a new downtown area restaurant, as well.  I will be doing a separate post on that restaurant later in the week.

This dress is one of my favorite dresses in the store.  It's super light and air-y (which is great for this record-breaking heat), without being see-through.  Of course, the strappy back is the cherry on top.  I have limited quantities, so get it while you can!

Happy Monday!

Tie-Dye Tube

DRESS // NECKLACE (w/matching earrings) // SHOES // SUNGLASSES

Hey guys, I'm sitting here trying to find inspiration for this blog post, but I'm just not in a word-y mood.  In light of recent events (#AltonSterling and #PhilandoCastile killings, and now shootings in Dallas), I'm in a somber mood and I'm just going to allow myself to be.  But I still wanted to get these latest outfit pictures up, so...

The Weekend + Princi

princi midtown atlanta

This past Saturday, the hubs and I went on a date night and decided to have dinner at Princi.  It's a fairly new restaurant in Midtown (Atlanta).  We've walked past it a few times, because we tend to hangout in the Midtown area, and we've always took note on how quaint it looked, especially the patio.

I won't go into full "food critic" mode, but I just thought I'd share that we really enjoyed our time there.  The food was great, and the ambiance couldn't be beat.  I had the Chicken Piccata and the hubs had Branzino.

Teal Wrap Dress

DRESS // SHOES, similar

I love wrap dresses.  Have I ever told you guys that?  I do...because it's one of the easiest and most flattering style of dress for ALL body types.  They also have this "classy" feel to them....even if it only cost you 20 in this case.
