Annabel Manners In Atlanta

One thing I love about Atlanta:

When you go out to dinner on a Saturday night, you can bet your Jimmy Choos every man in the restaurant will be wearing a sport coat.

(We have that phenomenon here in Los Angeles, of course. You just have to go to abrooks-brothers-blue-fitzgerald-fit-hopsack-blazer-product-1-16918590-1-474894904-normal_large_flexwedding to see it.)

Having not laid eyes on my family since Christmas, I slipped off to the ATL for a much-needed weekend visit. What a treat! A few highlights:

  • Giant magnolias in bloom all over the city. The kind you want to pluck and float in antique crystal bowls because they smell so divine.
  • Shopping with Mama Manners. Remember how I told y’all about Elizabeth McKay? I tried on heaps of her clothes at Poppy’s, and they’re made just as beautifully as I suspected. I’m now the proud owner of one of her adorable skirts.
  • Listening to beach music and having a cocktail on my parents’ screened-in porch.
  • An unforgettable dinner at Bacchanalia, which rivals fine dining in the City of Angels.
  • Squealing over every single thing at Boxwoods, a fabulous home, garden, and gift store. I want to move right in!

I came home full of blog inspiration, so stay tuned to

Have a wonderful week, everybody!
