I’ve been to Atlanta several times over the last few years, visiting two of my closest friends who have spent some time there doing their med school rotations. They are both heading off to residency soon, which meant one last girls trip in ATL (for now). I arrived to some rainy cold weather, and we had some surprise snow (yay!) on my first night. The reaction to the incoming weather was actually pretty crazy, at least coming from someone who grew up in New York blizzards and now lives through Florida thunderstorms and hurricane warnings. The local businesses started closing at 2pm in fear of black ice and dangerous weather. My friends and I laughed it off later when it was actually less offensive weather than our Florida storms – just some light snow and beautiful winter weather! We hit a few hot spots while I was in town and even…

This past Sunday finally hit some Florida “Fall-ish” temperatures, which was perfect for an outdoor brunch, complete with a wool fedora. This fedora is actually still available in black or burgundy, and for only $12. You can shop it through this link (hurry, before it’s gone!). Brunch was at The Briarpatch, a busy local spot on Park Avenue in Winter Park, Florida. The food is always oh-so-photo-worthy. {outfit details: fedora / similar cream cape tops: option 1, option 2 / gray skinny jeans / similar nude ballet flats: option 1 / option 2, / tan crossbody bag (sold out right now), similar gold arrow necklaces: option 1 / option 2 (lower priced) / best bitches necklace}

I had such a great long Labor Day Weekend. One of my closest friends came to visit from med school in Atlanta, and we had lots of fun -filled with (too much) food and (too many) cocktails! We started with pedicures on Saturday, followed by exploring the Plant Street Market in Winter Garden, Florida. The market is kind of like a very mini Chelsea Market, with a feel of local food, vendors, and a brewery. We indulged in food by Five Thymes Five and a beer flight from Crooked Can Brewing Company. Sunday was definitely a “Sunday Funday”. Bottomless mimosas followed by some bar hopping in Downtown Orlando. That called for a casual and relaxing Monday, spent with Brooklyn Water Company bagels in the morning, and the rest of the day resting in bed. I hope everyone had a fun Labor Day! I’m off to Dallas Wednesday through Sunday, so…

I had such a fun weekend getaway in Key West! I road tripped for a long weekend with a bunch of friends, and the weekend included cocktails, sun, snorkeling, delicious food, and exploring some Key West sites!
