My nephew and I hit pay dirt with our shoot location for this week! I was driving around in my neighborhood over by Turner Field on Saturday when I ended up taking a couple of wrong turns…I swear I get lost every time I leave my house. What I stumbled on were the most beautiful murals imaginable! Entire buildings were covered in gorgeous street art! I almost crashed my car because I couldn’t stop staring. It turns out that the street art on the buildings was done by an organization I’m familiar with called Living Walls. Through the expression of street art, Living Walls seeks to change the view of public spaces within our community. If you’re ever driving around near Edgewood or surrounding areas and see any “art covered” buildings, nine times out of then, they were done by an artist affiliated with Living Walls.
For today’s outfit, I’m LOVING my new BDG Fade Away Plaid Dress from Urban Outfitters. As soon as I picked up this dress I knew that I wanted to wear a floppy fedora with it and that it had to be brown. I had NO idea where I would find one, but knew I couldn’t complete a look wearing this dress without one. I’m telling you, the shopping gods were on my side last Friday. During our company Thanksgiving celebration at work, instead of eating, I spent my time online looking for a Fedora. I got so excited when I saw that Target had a cute one available. But you know how that can go though…just because you see it online does NOT mean it will be in the store. It didn’t matter, I HAD to give it a try. It’s so funny because when I initially looked at the hats I didn’t see the brown fedora, only the black…I was crushed. Not ready to give up just yet, I started going up and down the hat aisles, looking under other hats to see if maybe someone had tucked one away…AND…VOILA! I found one! And it was the LAST one! Someone hid that sucker very well! Sucks for them…YAY for me!
Here’s my look:

Do you see now why I’m so crazy about this dress?!
So, how do YOU wear plaid?
Until next time!
