Happy Monday!! How was everyone’s weekend? Mine was relaxing and blog/work free. Friday night, Fab and I joined some friends for good food and beer in the city. We started the night off at Red Brick Brewery…they host tours and beer sampling in their tasting room. From there, we headed to JCT Kitchen, where I stuffed myself with bacon wrapped dates, mussels, and shrimp & grits. Yep…I went in with no shame…and I even enjoyed the warm bread and butter. Lol. If you’ve never been to JCT Kitchen, you’ll definitely want to add it to your list of restaurants to try in Atlanta. The ambiance is lively and quaint at the same time, and the food is kinda like southern fusion…classic southern dishes with a modern twist. Apparently, their fried chicken is TheBomb.com…so popular in fact, that they run out of it on a regular basis and have to warn diners about limited quantities on the menu. Unfortunately, none of us got to try it because indeed, it was all gone by the time we got seated for our 9pm reservation. I’ve gotta get me some of that chicken, y’all! So Anyway, we had a really good time…and it was nice to totally unplug. Sometimes I get so deep in the grind that I forget to stop and enjoy the things that are really important — time with family and friends (and cleaning my damn house…which ended up being an all day activity on Sunday. Lol.)
After a weekend off the grid, I’m going to do my best to jump back into blogging this week despite still being pretty swamped at work. Pray for me, y’all! Lol. This week’s Style Me Friday inspiration is Leather Pants. Real or faux…skinny or slouchy…I just can’t get enough of them. After all, a touch of leather elevates even the most basic of ensembles, and makes it instantly edgy…chic…modern. I could go on and on, but the point is leather pants are an absolutely wardrobe must have. (p.s. if leather is not your thing, coated denim is a great way to get the look!)
Style Me Friday & How to Link Up
- Every Friday (today), I will select and post the Style Me Friday inspiration look (below) that I’ll be recreating next week for the link-up!
- Sometime before next Friday, you will also recreate the look yourself, and post it on your blog, facebook, instagram, or wherever!*
- Next Friday, I will post my Style Me Friday recreation AND host a link up so you can share your recreated version of the look, too!
- *Important* Spread the word about the link up by adding the Style Me Friday badge to within your post and/or on your sidebar (either or is fine!)! You can grab the badge below! (If you are linking up from Instagram, Twitter or Facebook, you won’t be able to use the badge, so I’d just ask that you use hashtag #StyleMeFriday in your post or include a link back!)

*Reminder! Your version of the inspiration look does not need to be literal. It just needs to capture the spirit of the look. So have fun with it! I can’t wait to see what you all come up with!
