Big Games this Weekend, Dress Appropriately 

Lots of big games this weekend as we head toward the playoffs. You can’t control what happens on the field, but you can control how you dress for it. And, really, that’s what really matters. The weather is cooperating with our need to wear thermals and scarves. Pop into Henry & Pearl to grab a SMIJ thermal and hat and cheer loud. Every game matters.

Wear Your Camo Saturday for Veteran’s Day

On Saturday, November 11th, we have one small opportunity to focus some attention on those willing to sacrifice all for our freedom. Join SMIJ and wear camo on Saturday. Of course, I’d love to see your pictures so send them my way. God Bless America!

Fun Spot to Sip and Shop

How I love a cute coffee shop! I love to find cute places to have our business meetings. These places and the people in them inspire me and spark creativity. This fun spot is in Historic Roswell. Crazy Love Coffee has personality for days, 2 patios on which to sip, a bustling atmosphere, kid-friendly, but also great for a business meeting. If you want (need) coffee, or something a little more hearty or sweet, I highly recommend  this new spot. And, they have a pretty extensive gift selection so you can sip AND shop. I’m taking the kids back for waffles soon. One is named “pink drizzle”. How could that not be good. They all look amazing! 

City Love up Top

We now have our City Love hats and our bad hair days are thanking us. I love hat days and probably have about 4 per week. I’m loving our new zip code hats for a few of those days. I can’t wait to wear these on trips, too. Our zip code tees always start such fun conversations in other cities and I’m guessing the hats will do the same. I wanted these available now because they could make fun Christmas gifts, white elephant gifts, hostess gifts and the list goes on. Grab “30004” at Henry & Pearl in Milton or Isabella Bleu in Alpharetta. “30075” will be available soon, too. 

See my Instagram for a give-away of this hat! Get one for you AND a friend! 

Go Tigers • Game Day OOTD Winner

If you cheer for Tigers, have I got the game day outfit for you! I may cheer for some tigers this weekend just to wear this. First of all, I’m loving sweatshirts this season. They are really on trend and you can find them from $15 to $500 ( not kidding!). I immediately loved this one from H&M and thought it would be so fun with a SMIJ “Game Day” hat in black. I like chic, edgy game day styles and this fits that bill. Throw on some distressed jeans, fun sneakers (could get the $650 Gucci Tiger ones!) and you are ready to cheer on your Tigers. 

{Hats can be found at Scout & Molly’s at Avalon | Isabella Blue in Downtown Alpharetta |Serendipity in Historic Rozwell | Findlay & Row near Blessed Trinity | Henry & Pearl in Milton} 

Georgia v. Florida Weekend Style

Game Day hatThis is a weekend we treat like a holiday in our house. Lots of Gators and Dawgs in our lives and, whether we’re attending the game or celebrating back in Atlanta, the ups and downs of this rivalry are always memorable. This year, we have our new “Game Day” hats to help you choose a side. Grab a red or blue hat at one of our retail partners and cheer loud. Choose to stay neutral and just enjoy the tailgate food? We offer black and camo, too. Cheer, eat, laugh, cry… It’s going to be another good one. Game Day hat

Saturday Calls for Layers

‘Tis the season for layering. Leaving for a Game Day is like packing for the weekend. Layering is key to keep up with the changing temps from morning to night. I like to start the day with no hat and throw one on later when the day has taken its toll on my hair, Add a thermal over your mid-day tank or tee and you’ve got a whole new look. Get your Game Day plan together because it’s less than 24 hours away! 

More Beach, Please – Resort Style

I think the school system must have realized that we all need the beach a few times per school year. I love how we have all these breaks giving us many chances to breathe that sea air. I’m already picking fabrics and styles for Spring/Summer 2018 Cover-Ups and Vacation Shorts. Plan lots of beach days because you’re going to want to wear SMIJ S/S ’18.
