The Perfect Weekend Jacket and The Curb Market




Wearing: Dora Landa Baseball Jacket c/o // Loft Sweatshirt // Loft Skinny Pants // John Hardy Dragon Bracelet // David Yurman Bracelet // Kate Spade Bag, options  // Nine West booties, TJ Maxx, options // Mac Ruby Woo Lipstick

This dreary weather has been a driving force behind my outfits lately.  I have really been into comfortable pieces that are as cozy as my sweats, but don't look as sloppy.  Because let's face it,  I am all about sweatshirts and spandex at home and it can be really hard to change unless I can talk myself into something cute and comfortable.

This Dora Landa baseball jacket gets an A+ for comfort and cuteness. It has stretch in the body that moves with you and the sleeves are a soft vegan leather. It is perfect for those chilly days when you need a light layer. This lovely has become my go-to jacket that keeps me looking fab, but comfy at the same time. Can it get any better than that?

I wore my new favorite jacket all weekend while exploring the city.  B and I discovered the Sweet Auburn Curb Market in heart of downtown Atlanta. Here are my notes on this retro indoor market filled with diverse foods and rich history.



The Sweet Auburn Curb Market








Founded in 1924, the Market has over 30+ vendors offering everything from fresh produce, meat, and seafood, to restaurants, a bookstore, and a pharmacy.  Ranked by USA Today as the 16th best food market in the world, the Sweet Auburn Curb Market is a great place to spend an afternoon sampling diverse foods and enjoying a little slice of Atlanta's culture. Highlights include Arepa Mia, Sweet Auburn BBQ, and Grindhouse Killer Burger just to name a few.  There is plenty of seating located around the market reminiscent of an old school cafeteria that only adds to the charm.

We met the lovely Miss D's from New Orleans Pralines and Popcorn who showed us some real southern hospitality and let us sample her childhood memory evoking sweets. Overall, this market has a lot of character and charm and if you have a free afternoon in Atlanta, I recommend visiting for a stroll. It's a cool place to explore.

Thanks so much for reading!
