Weekend Wardrobe: Summer Weekend in the City Wardrobe

The Fernbank Museum of Natural History in Atlanta
(from A Long Mile from Home)

We live about 2.5 hours from Atlanta, so whenever we go into the city it is always a day trip.  However, the drive is just long enough to limit the amount of time we can actually spend in Atlanta.  One of these days I think it would be fun to stay in the city overnight.  It would be nice to be able to take our time when strolling through museums or the Atlanta Botanical Garden, and then go out for a nice dinner somewhere instead of grabbing a quick bite while en route to our home town.  As an avid mystery novel reader, I have always wanted to attend a dinner performance at Agatha's A Taste of Mystery, and an overnight stay in Atlanta would allow me to do so!

For the drive, I would wear something comfortable that would not look too rumpled when we arrived in Atlanta:

To beat the heat, I would pack lightweight clothes plus extra shirts should I feel the need for a change after facing the high heat and humidity of a typical Georgia summer day:

Clockwise from top left: ; Veeshee Custom Tuscany Weekender Bag in Jute Linen; Chadwicks of Boston Sleeveless Crewneck Tee in White; Coldwater Creek Pearl Cluster Earrings; Chadwicks of Boston Sleeveless Crewneck Tee in Lilac Mist; Coldwater Creek Washed CottonLuxe Crop Pants in Lavender; Chadwicks of Boston Sleeveless Crewneck Tee in Coffee; Coldwater Creek "Porta" Wedges by Born in White; Una Alla Volta Hand-Beaded Shell Wristlet; Chadwicks of Boston Chambray Fit & Flare Dress; Uno Alla Volta Sunkissed Hand-Marbeld Silk Scarf; Center: Coldwater Creek Tonal Cascade Necklace.

The scarf from Uno Alla Volta really caught my eye.  It is perfect for time spent indoors, and adds a pop of color to any outfit combination from this wardrobe (yellow is the complementary color for purple, and the multicolored marbling in the scarf makes it easy to combine with almost any color combination).  For July in Atlanta, the lightweight short-sleeve cardigan would probably only be needed in frigidly air-conditioned buildings, since even the nighttime lows rarely fall below 70 degrees (for a cold-weather person like me, 70 degrees and above is hot).


One of these days I will convince my husband that we need to stay overnight in Atlanta, and if it happens in the summer then this is the wardrobe for me!
