Atlanta Eats: Foxtrot Liquor Bar

In the midst of all of the holiday bustle, my sister and I took a few hours out of holiday parties to meet up with our future sister in law and celebrate her engagement to our brother. Rachel happens to be a sweet friend and a pretty awesome blogger, so we definitely feel like we hit the sister in law jackpot. We met up at one of Atlanta's newest watering holes, Foxtrot Liquor Bar to explore their menu, have a few beverages, and chat all things wedding. 

Foxtrot Liquor Bar is in Midtown and happens to be directly next door to one of my favorite Atlanta hidden gens, Pasta da Pulcinella (more on that another time). Decorated in layers of plaids, ginghams, and leathers, Foxtrot certainly packs gentlemanly appeal while keeping ladies entranced as well. We sipped through beverages like Life on Mars (a gin and champagne cocktail), and I even had my first eggnog ever...delicious. 

Pub grub eats included things like pierogies (small dumplings filled with mashed potatoes), pimento cheese fritters (don't miss them...), and housemade sliders. Perhaps my favorite discovery of the night (beyond the wedding details, obviously) was that Foxtrot created their own, signature tonic water. As a gin-loving gal, this was music to my ears. Sign me up for a gin and tonic next time! 

Needless to say, Foxtrot is a must-visit. Snuggle up to the bar, chat with the mixologists, take in the ambiance, and enjoy the food. Tell them I sent you!

The Denim Jacket: A Southerner's BFF

With the exception of the impending southeastern ice/snowstorm that's supposedly headed our way this evening, we've had a relatively mild winter so far. Granted, it's technically only been a few weeks, but since we've all had sweaters out for quite some time, I feel like it's been at least a month of winter if not more. 

Atlanta winters tend to be a lot warmer than most places, so I'm always thinking a little bit differently about my wardrobe. Sleeveless tops and flats get paired with felt hats and Kut from the Kloth denim jackets (c/o). I will say, the good news with outfits like these is I can dress easily for the day time and switch to date night without giving much thought to it other than a swipe of lipstick and adding gold hoops. Plus, a denim jacket is a southerner's bff. Lightweight and classic: the perfect staple. 

These black jeans have been a staple for me (super affordable...i.e. cheap!) and while some people frown on the Texas tuxedo, when you mix denim colors, it's all good. I might not be recreating this outfit this weekend due to snow, but it may or may not slip into my suitcase for next weekend's girls trip to Rosemary Beach! Light, breezy layers scream winter seaside spots, don't you think?

P.S. No, this isn't some European town, but rather adorable historic Roswell. Aren't the pictures with the stone wall and blue door like Greece?!
