Next Southern summer adventure:
We’re heading to Junction, Texas for a 4th of July weekend including, but not limited to, a Stoney LaRue concert, family, fireworks and river floating.

Now would ya look at that:
Hands down my new favorite oxford by Huxter. The elbow patch is an antique map of Watch Hill, Rhode Island, where Huxter calls home, and I hope to visit someday.

Lives in:
Atlanta, Georgia

Favorite bar in Atlanta:
Northside Tavern, hands down. Live blues music every night. Even though it looks like a hellhole from the outside, it’s like a club…once you go, you get it.

You can only shop in one store for the rest of your life…where would it be:
Well now, that’s tough.
Everyday essentials – Target and Capital City Liquor.
Vintage treasures – Goodwill.
For that something special and everything beautiful – Niemans.

Brandon

Raised in:
Mountain Brook, Alabama

Lives in:
New Orleans, Louisiana

Favorite spot in Savannah:
That’s tough!  I saw so much, so quickly. Everything is beautiful and magical there, not unlike New Orleans. If I had to pick, it might be Dept. 7 East because I got to pause for a moment to appreciate Savannah before the wedding weekend. The cold rosé, great company, and Croque with pimento cheese was a perfect intro to Savannah.

Now would ya look at that:
I declared Brandon the “best dressed wedding guest” at this wedding.

  • KREWE du optic sunglasses (L•G•D).
  • Brooks Brothers bow tie.
  • Vintage private label Parisians blazer. “Parisians is a department store that was founded in Birmingham, and that everyone misses dearly.”
  • Ralph Lauren shirt.
  • Tag Heuer watch.
  • Southern Creed iPhone case (King Cotton pattern). “Her stuff is locally designed, locally made, and locally awesome. Mint Julep pocket squares and Okra cocktail napkins? Yes, please.”
  • J.Crew pants.
  • Paul Smith socks.
  • Cole Haan loafers. “They’re great because I don’t worry about ruining pricey loafers splashing through New Orleans puddles.”

 

Headless

Raised in:
Him: Alpharetta, Georgia
Her: 
Powder Springs, Georgia

Lives in:
Atlanta, Georgia

Favorite Atlanta date spot:
Him: JCT.  It’s got everything you need – great atmosphere, a patio bar upstairs, supper downstairs, and we can walk home…
Her: Alfredo’s on Cheshire Bridge. The place is like a time capsule into early ’80s Italian-American nostalgia, complete with endless framed Godfather-esque headshots and various imperial bottles of house reds in the corner of each booth. The Veal Picata is perfect. It’s cheesy, but still romantic. We go once a month.

Now would ya look at that:
More photos of these two coming next week.

On Him…

On Her…

Favorite cocktail from the latest Charleston trip:
The Fresa Fresh from The Macintosh - Ambrose Farm’s Strawberries, gin, Lillet Rose, and Heavenly Feijoa. I’ll be trying really hard to recreate it as best as I can this summer and when I do, I’ll feature it here.
