Or at least that’s what it felt like this last week in Georgia.
And as the season’s changed and the stores at Emory Point begin to shift their color schemes from darks to pastels, we were invited down to sample some of the new pieces at Fab’rik, American Threads, Francessca’s, Lizard Thicket and Loft.
When Brooke from the Reynolds Group invited me to tag along, I couldn’t say no because I had such a great time at the last event. I decided that since we dipped into the 70’s that week that I was going to bust out my new dress from South Harmony (c/o)! It is the perfect little number with lace cutouts on the side and back. Perfectly classy. After a little bit of window shopping, we were ready to snoop around the stores.
Lizard Thicket was our first stop where bright pastels, overalls and pretty dainty necklaces awaited us to touch, feel and try on! Random poll: Is it just me, or are you okay with never wearing overalls again? I left them (and my straight across bangs) back in the 90’s where they shall remain a fond memory.
Lizard Thicket boasts an impressive collection of Capri Blue candles. I love stocking up on these so that I can bring them with me when I travel!
You never truly feel like a grown up until you start bringing your own candles with you.
As we entered our next location, American Threads, we were greeted with beautiful colors and boho prints and one very happy cake stand brimming with Malvi Mallows. If you have yet to try a Malvi Mallow don’t fret. You can order them here. This Atlanta Local company makes fresh mallows in an array of flavors. My favorite flavor is chocolate, I’ve had hibiscus and raspberry as well but neither compare to chocolate. In Fab’rik we found more royal hues for spring: Like rich blues and bright reds. I bought a pretty purple and off white striped tank with ruffles and I can’t wait to wear it once it gets just a tad warmer. Our second to last stop of the evening was at Loft, which if you guys don’t know, is one of my favorite stores for professional and casual outings. I love that this company basically embodies what “Business Casual” means to young, stylish women.
I may have picked up a few things. Like this skirt, this sweater, this shirt, this anorak and these sunglasses.. Thankfully with shop and stroll we were offered a little discount to offset my large purchase! As the fluorescent street lights began to take over the natural light waning from the day, we made our way out of the stores and onto the street for one last photo op.
I just love how swingy this dress is from South Harmony (if you call them, you can order online since they don’t have a website yet!). I can’t wait to wear it for both formal and informal events this summer.
A huge thank you to the Reynolds Group who hosted this event for us. Emory Point was so kind to donate small gift cards for us and provide special discounts at the stores we shopped at.
Spring has sprung and if you feel the need to update your wardrobe, be sure to pop over to Emory Point! Then you can refuel by eating at The General Miur right on the corner!
