Yesterday we went up to North Georgia to visit the city of Dahlonega, home to the site of the first major US gold rush in 1828, a classic old Southern downtown district, and North Georgia College & State University.
It also happens to have close proximity to a large outlet shopping venue.
After checking out the downtown and enjoying a big Southern meal served family style (you pass around the platters and bowls of food at a big table, likely with people you don't know) at The Smith House, we ventured to the outlets.
Here's what I ate (+ homemade rolls & butter and strawberry shortcake with ice cream for dessert):
And here's what I bought at the outlets:
J Crew Corduroy Eden Jacket in an eggplant color $89.50, discounted to $59.99
The body of the jacket is not lined, but the sleeves are, and these were displayed with a rolled cuff.
J Crew Printed Kelsey Ruffle Top in a purple paisley $69.50, discounted to $34.99
J Crew Merino Forever Cardigan in a pale pink $69.50, less 30% = $48.65
Pottery Barn stainless steel water bottles (aren't they pretty?!) $12.00 ea., on sale for $6.99 ea.
These are going to remind me to hydrate, hydrate, hydrate.
